Who would have thought there was room for a new endless runner in the App Store? Imangi Studios, apparently. They surprised us in early August with Temple Run: a great new on the formula, scored 4.5 stars in our test and was one of the titles in our Best Games of August 2011 iOS take roundup. I think our own Nissa best summarized it as “the endless runner, you feel like an archaeologist with a penchant for making deadly situations.”
The only complaint, is that I had with the game is the lack of native support for iPad. Well, I’m happy to report that the game’s third change, which ended yesterday evening, Temple Run takes universal.
The v1.3 update brings the following improvements, as listed Imangi:
Universal iPad support! Run for your life on the big screen!
Two new characters to unlock! Barry Bones, a city police officer with an attitude and karma Lee, the fastest legs in the Far East. To unlock new characters, just go to the store and scroll down.
Further goals to increase your score multiplier!
You can now Tweet your score at the end of a game! To know that all your friends that you are the temple run champ!
More opportunities for free coins! Go> Get More Coins shop, check it out!
Many performance improvements and bug fixes! Temple should run smoother than ever before!
I’ve been running this latest version of Temple for a while now and it’s definitely more fun than ever before. It’s amazing how much richer an experience of the game on the iPad, with its 10-inch screen. But, you can see from entrenched Leaderboard kings – I quickly found that playing on the iPad is conducive to much higher rating.
A few weeks back, around the release of their v1.2 update is said to have made Imangi Temple Run a free download that will seem somewhat iOS gamers appreciated. Recently I’ve managed to pull some statistics about the game developer Keith Shepherd of activity over the entire life cycle so far in the App Store. As a paid app in the first month, saw Imangi played 10 million games. Three days after being released, beat Temple Run 20 million games played, and after a week as a free app, it hit the 100 million mark for games. All were played in all that just now 350 million games of Temple Run. Not bad run … so to speak.
Imangi Icade work on support for Temple Run and hopes to bring it in the next update.
