TechBits: Temple Run fans should like the game’s new version

Temple Run 2
They didn’t mess with success

Fans of the first version of Temple Run will probably be cheered to hear that Imangi Studios hasn’t messed with a winning formula. In fact, the new version of the popular mobile action game is nearly indistinguishable from its predecessor. The biggest changes come in the game’s improved graphics, though it does require a little more fancy maneuvering to get through levels. In-game advertisements for gems and coins that will skyrocket you through the game are also a bit more intrusive, but not enough to push you to stop using the app. And, of course, users can make their way through the app without spending a dime, as long as they have the patience. Free, for iOS and Android devices.
