There's no denying the popularity of the original Temple Run. The endless running game has been downloaded over 170 million times by Android and iOS users and it's the No. 8 free app in the Google Play Store
After Temple Run 2 was released last week for iOS users last week, Imangi Studios founder Keith Shepherd finally submitted the Android version of the game to publish at midnight on Thursday and celebrated with his fans on Twitter.
Compatible with devices running Android 2.1 and up, the sequel is packed with beautiful, updated graphics, a completely different environment and the same, fun gameplay from the first game with a few new tricks.
The game has new obstacles like a zip line, rivers and even a mine cart ride through a mine shaft and instead of getting chased by a few demon monkeys from the original game, the game starts off with one giant monkey.
Temple Run 2 also gives players more of a three-dimensional feel to the game as the camera pans left and right while making your way through the game.
The game's only flaw is the lack of an exit and back button, which will be fixed in the first update, Shepherd says.
It goes without saying, Temple Run 2 is a worthy successor and fans of the original game will enjoy it as much as they did the first game, if not more.
Take the idol again, if you dare.
