Imangi Studios has just announced that their latest release, Temple Run [App Store] — the endless runner that makes you feel like an archaeologist with a penchant for deadly situations — is free, for a limited time.
Temple Run scored 4.5 stars in our recent review and was among the titles in our Best iOS Games of August 2011 roundup. Imangi recently pushed out a v1.2 update that brings the following enhancements:
- Two new characters
- Scarlett Fox
- Montana Smith
- Two new powerups
- Boost (when you pick it up you boost forward at super speed)
- Head Start (when activated you boost forward 1000m at start of your run)
- Three new achievements
- Allergic to Gold
- Head Start
With this updated, players can now earn free coins through offers in the in-game store, but Imangi would remind players that such in-app purchases are optional, and that coins can still be earned in-game.
The next Temple Run update, bringing more new characters and powerups as well as iCade support, is expected soon.
