Almost a decade ago, smartphones started to become quite popular, and many people began to buy Android and iOS devices. Temple Run 2 is one of the most popular games on Android and iOS.
A large number of developers have started to work on titles that could be played on the go, and some new genres were created in the process. One of them was the endless runner genre, which allows the player to run for an unlimited amount of time across a track that is filled with obstacles, boons, and bonuses.
One of the titles that contributed to the popularity of the endless runner genre is Temple Run, which was released in August 2011 for iOS and March 2012 for Android. The success of the game encouraged the developers to release a sequel named Temple Run 2.
Temple Run 2 features the same control scheme, but the major changes have improved the gameplay experience. Players will have to avoid a series of new obstacles while keeping an eye out for mighty power-ups that can boost your chance of reaching a longer distance.
Temple Run 2 Features
Here are some of the features offered by Temple Run 2:
- Fresh setting – The game takes place in a new area that looks considerably better thanks to new advancements and a superior game engine.
