Temple Run has been downloaded over a billion times, according to developer Imangi. The figure includes all platforms, the original Temple Run, and its sequel Temple Run 2.
Not many games ever reach that figure, although Rovio’s Angry Birds series has been downloaded over two billion times. Temple Run’s billion downloads also do not include its Disney tie-in games.
Imangi also revealed some interesting statistics about Temple Run players: 60% are women, and China has 36% of all downloads, with the US coming in second at 21%.
Temple Run was released in 2011, with its sequel appearing two years later. Like Angry Birds, its success is built on it’s simple controls and a good upgrade system that keeps you coming back.
