Temple Run 2 is the fastest-spreading mobile game ever

A runaway success.

Temple Run 2 is now the fastest-spreading mobile game ever in the world ever. In 13 days it has been downloaded 50 million times across Android, iOS and Kindle devices.

These devs get boulder and boulder.

That's a mere 3.85 million copies downloaded a day, or roughly 160,000 an hour. Imagine watching the download ticker rise by 2671 every minute; that's roughly 45 a second!

Helps that Temple Run 2 is free, of course, and endlessly run I mean fun. It enjoys the sort of default-phone-game status that propelled Angry Birds into the stratosphere.

It's Angry Birds that Temple Run 2 stole the fastest-spreading record from, too - Angry Birds Space, which rocketed past 50 million downloads in 35 days.

Eurogamer awarded Temple Run 2 7/10. It's not great or wildly different, but then it's free, known and accessible because of it.
