Temple Run races to 100 million downloads

Imangi Studio’s Temple Run has achieved 100 million downloads across iOS and Android. We’d describe what the game is about, but from those numbers it appears you either already know or could simply turn to the person next to you and ask. Breaking it down, the free reflex actioner has had over 68 million downloads on iOS and 32 million on Android.

“We never imagined that the game we were making and loved would be so well received around the world,” said Imangi co-founder Keith Shepherd. “The last year has been incredible for us, and we are grateful to fans of the game.”

To celebrate the milestone, all Imangi’s games released prior to Temple Run are free for a limited time. That’s… well, according to a quick glance at the App Store, it appears to be all their games.
