Temple Run 2 for Windows Phone gets bug fixes in latest update, but still no 512 MB support

91

For those looking to run Temple Run 2 on their 512 MB Windows Phone, you still have some waiting to do. This morning, version 1.6.1.0 of the app went live in the Store, bringing with it some small bug fixes, but no new features are present that we have noticed.

Released exactly 30 days ago, Temple Run 2 is one of many ‘must have’ games for Windows Phone that are slowly making their way over from other platforms. The game is free and even comes with the vaunted Xbox Live support, making it even more of a lust worthy time killer for endless runner fans (see our roundup of such games here).

Today, nearly 16 months later, Molome has finally made its landing on Windows Phone 8, available for all devices.

So what is Molome?
