Recovering Temple Run addicts who finally managed to stop playing the endless action game developed by Imangi Studios are going to feel like Michael Corleone did in Godfather III when he said, "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." That is, unless you can resist Temple Run 2, which is already available in New Zealand and slated to launch later tonight in the U.S. The second coming of Temple Run introduces all new graphics and organic environments, though the gameplay is mostly the same as before. Only this time around, there will be new obstacles, more powerups, more achievements,... Read more...
