For all the haters, of course this is the same game with a different environment. Isnt that the point? I dont understand.
People hate because they don't understand lol. The numbers usually shut them up. We just have to wait a little while to see how many downloaded the game.

Very, very true! Numbers never lie and the fact is, Temple Run is loved by many and Temple Run 2 will no doubt do the same.

Well that was unexpected. I just tried my first game with TR2. I already miss TR1... physics in this one are weird.

That's my argument as well, I have no desire to pay for something then have to keep paying to keep playing. Let me pay for it once and then that's it. Temple Run was one of those games that did it logically, if you played you could do everything, get everything, in the game without having to spend cash in a reasonable amount of time. Spend money if you just want to accelerate that a bit faster, but really not necessary.

That's why I'll test out Temple Run 2, normally I see "Top In-App Purchases" and I pass on the game.

Pretty cool.

I enjoyed trying to beat my friends in the first one until people started cheating with the glitch to get the high scores. That's no fun.

Poor baby, upset that they didn't wow you with more improvements for free? I mean, we all know you deserve only the best when you're not actually contributing a penny to the dev or doing ANY of the work to make the product.

Yeah, it's a nice game, but doesn't really have a goal (for the users). Just a lot of running.

I'll try 2 out, but I kind of wish it had levels to complete or some quest to do.

Downloaded it last night. I need to give it more time, but so far I prefer the original Temple Run. Something is odd about how the camera follows your view and the fact that it's a lot less predictable. Which could make it more challenging or just make it less fun.

Yup, it needs a "quick play" and "campaign" maybe to keep it interesting. I think it might be cool to have online competitions to see who can stay alive the longest.

There seem to be a lot of these kinds of games where the entire premise is you play a guy who runs and all you have to do is jump over obstacles. Pretty simple premise, but it's still fun, IMO. Downloaded it, and I'm not very good.

It spawns randomly. But you need to run a bit further before it usually appears.
