Sorry Angry Birds, but you’ve been dethroned. The number #1 free app/game right now is Temple Run 2. So if you’re looking for a fun new game to play on your phone or tablet or mobile device, you’ve got to check it out.

Temple Run 2, the sequel to Temple Run (which itself has over 170 million downloads) became the #1 free app within six hours of its Thursday release. That’s right, it’s only been out for a few days and it’s already setting records.

If you’ve never payed Temple Run, it’s one of those “endless runner” games which means that your character has to run, leap, run, turn, run, slide and run, for as long as possible. Why are you running? Because you are being chased by a giant monkey of course. If you fall, you die which means the monkey may get you, or you just fall to a violent death and back to the beginning.

Temple Run 2 is basically the same game as Temple Run but with better graphics, new organic environments, more powerups, new obstacles, more achievements, new powers for the characters you play with, and… a BIGGER MONKEY.

Temple Run 2 has been downloaded more than 20 million times since its launch. It’s only available in the Apple store right now, but will be coming to android later this week.

Have you played Temple Run 2? Would love to hear your review of the new game.
