Temple Run 2 was released in the Apple App Store on Jan. 17 and shot up the charts very quickly. The mobile game was downloaded over 6 million times in just 24 hours. Temple Run 2 was then released for Android on Jan. 24 and the game has just run over Rovio's Angy Birds Space record of 50 million downloads in 35 days. Temple Run 2 and the original Temple Run are cult-classics on iOS and Android due to its simple, fun, and addictive gameplay, and it doesn't hurt that the game is free either. Imangi released a statement on their new record-breaking game:

"Imangi Studios today announced that Temple Run 2 has been downloaded over 50 million times on iOS, Android and Kindle devices. Reaching the milestone in 13 days breaks the previously set record for the fastest growing mobile game*... Following a release on Google Play and Amazon Marketplace, the sequel continued its record-breaking success, racing to the #1 spot, respectively, in each store. Temple Run has evolved into something so much bigger than us," says Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi. "The game has performed beyond our wildest dreams, and we are thrilled that gamers and fans have embraced Temple Run 2 in such a short period of time."

Not bad for 2 weeks, right?
