App game Temple Run 2 has been downloaded over 50 million times on iOS, Android and Kindle devices. 

UK licensing agent Lisle International Licensing said this makes it the fastest growing mobile game. 

Temple Run 2 launched exclusively on the App Store on January 17th and quickly rose to the number one free app position, earning over six million downloads in less than 24 hours. 

Following a release on Google Play and Amazon Marketplace, the sequel continued its record-breaking success, racing to the number one spot in each store. 

The original Temple Run has been downloaded over 170 million times.

 “Temple Run has evolved into something so much bigger than us,” says Keith Shepherd, co-founder of developer Imangi. “The game has performed beyond our wildest dreams, and we are thrilled that gamers and fans have embraced Temple Run 2 in such a short period of time.”

The Temple Run licensing programme includes apparel with children’s sleepwear by Komar in the US, digital comics with Ape Entertainment, card and board games with Spin Master, and more. 

Gayle Tarrant from Lisle commented: “The great news about Temple Run just keeps on coming and the download figures for the new version are staggering. 

"This is a property that has captured the global download audience and is a clear indication of the tremendous licensing opportunities that it holds."
