Temple Run 2 reaches 20 million downloads in four days

Temple Run 2 was downloaded more than 20 million times during its first four days of availability on the iTunes App Store this past weekend, developer Imangi Studios announced today.

The game became the top-downloaded free app within eight hours of its release Jan. 17; as of this writing, it remains the top free app, and its in-app purchases of gems and coins have pushed it to the second spot on the chart for top-grossing apps in the United States.

Imangi co-founder Keith Shepherd called the fan response to Temple Run 2 "overwhelming" in a press release announcing the milestone, and added, "We are thrilled players want more of the Temple Run universe, and we hope to grow and expand the game over the coming months."

With its download numbers, Temple Run 2 has a chance to surpass Angry Birds Space as the fastest-growing mobile game yet. Rovio's cosmic sequel accumulated 50 million downloads in its first 35 days of release last spring.

According to the press release, Temple Run 2 remains scheduled for an Android launch this week on Google Play and the Amazon Appstore. For more details on how Imangi built Temple Run 2, check out our interview with Shepherd.
