'Temple Run 2' launching on iPhone and iPad tonight

Temple Run 2

Temple Run fans take note — the incredibly popular mobile game is finally getting a sequel. Already available in the New Zealand App Store, Temple Run 2 is expected to start hitting other countries soon, with Touch Arcade reporting that it will be available in the US later tonight. From the looks of things, the sequel maintains the same basic gameplay as the original, so expect plenty of running away from danger while collecting coins and avoiding obstacles.

But that doesn't mean there's nothing new: the game is set in a new environment (what looks to be a floating temple), where you can ride in mine carts and on zip lines, check out new powerups, and, according to the App Store description, be chased by an even bigger monkey. The visuals also look like they've received a significant bump in quality. Like the original, Temple Run 2 is free-to-play, but unfortunately there's no word on when it might be making its way to Android devices as well.
