    In the two weeks since Temple Run 2 launched on the App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Marketplace, the app has been downloaded more than fifty million times, the fastest downloaded mobile game in history.

    The previous fastest downloaded game was Angry Birds Space, selling 50 million copies in under six weeks -- though Angry Birds Space was a pay app, not a free download like Temple Run 2.
    Temple Run 2 is available as a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

    Yea I really like playing this game, not sure what draws me to it. It's like Forest Gump I guess you just want to keep running and then maybe one day I'll stop.

    I downloaded it 12 minutes after it hit the app store in the US..not as good as TR1 by any stretch.. but just as addictive for sure. :cool:

    Makes sense... Most really popular games (angry birds, fruit ninja etc) cost money. The fact that it’s freemium would ensure insane growth :)

    The mechanics interaction w/ the environment are not as good as the 1st, but is easy for it to get lots of downloads when it's free though.

    Hard to say with freeium... Depends on how much people were desperate enough to one-up their friends to use their credit card :eek:

    Great...I hope they are able to fix a few of the bugs before long

    1. When you get a power up while it is already active the new one doesn't reset the duration, it still ends based on the length of the original.

    2. I went past 1,000,000 meters and it didn't give me any exp and has a duplicate 1,000,000 meters achievement still saying I'm only about half ways done. Once I completed then it gave me a second 500,000 coins achievement so I'm sure I'm toast on that one as well.

    3. My lifetime coins are not anywhere close to correct. it says I have 128,884 total in 292 runs with a single run high of 14,228. Also it shows I'm over half ways to 500,000 lifetime on the achievement.

    It's too laggy for me. I have to put it in airplane mode to play. I have a 4S.

    I consider myself a person that would never make in app purchases, and I've spent over $20 on the game so far, over time. I image they average at least $1 for every free player, $50 million made so far, AT LEAST.

    I'm kind of pissed at this game. I had made some great progress and had hit 100,000 lifetime coins, and then it reset my coins

    Only the coins have reset though. These are my current stats:

    Single Run
    Highest Score: 9,835,766
    Longest Run: 26,411
    Most Coins: 0

    Lifetime
    Total Games: 63
    Total Distance: 353,008
    Total Coins: 0

    I'm pretty pissed since i was well over 100,000 lifetime coins and one of my current objectives is 500,000 lifetime coins.

    So i'm stuck because my coins keep getting reset.

    That's weird. My coins are wrong but it continues to recognize them in my objectives. It also continues to count them, even though it is at least 100,000 off.

    Yep the lifetime coins seems to reset per session, as does the most coins in one run stat, but as you say they still seem to count for achievements. I finally got the first "500,000 lifetime coins" achievement last night, which I think was more like 1m coins as I got 150k in that session alone, and now there is another achievement that says 500k coins and I'm hardly anywhere on that.

    There is a gem powerup thing that says "requires level 10" but as far as I can see you cannot get that high. Halfway through level 8 and the only achieves left are lifetime goals, plus I'm at 40/42 achievements in GC. And, as they are lifetime goals, I'm probably just going to max out the last two upgrades and then quit, maybe return to TR1 where I still have a few achieves to get as well.

    Well crap. I had a moment of hope reading your post, but mine are definitely not counting towards my achievements still. I know i've gotten at least 100,000 coins as i have that acheivement, but the "Gold Miner" 500,000 lifetime coins objective has a tiny sliver of green. It should at least be filled up 1/5th of the bar.

    Yeah things are a bit messed up, there are 2 achieves that call themselves 500,000 coins. I just completed one of them but am barely 20% to the other, presumably a typo/issue that was supposed to say 2.5million? Not terribly surprising in a game where they misspell "ojbectives".
