Temple Run 2 finally arrives for 512 MB Windows Phones

Remember when Temple Run 2 came out in December with Xbox Live? It launched without support for low-memory devices like the Lumia 520. That changes today with the latest update for Temple Run 2. Head into the Windows Phone Store and you’ll be able to pick up Temple Run 2 for your 512 MB Windows Phone.

Temple Run has been updated to version 1.9.1.0. We’re not seeing any feature changes to the game, but that doesn’t really matter since millions of Windows Phone owners finally get access to the game. Do let us know if you notice anything else new with the update, but so far this looks just to be about giving access to those with low-memory devices.

How many folks with a phone like the Lumia 520 are picking up Temple Run 2 today? Don’t forget to check out our Temple Run 2 review. Don't forget this is a FREE game!

Download Temple Run 2 from the Windows Phone Store.

Thanks for the tip, Ashwin P., and everyone else!

  • wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! so finally i get what i paid for =P Long live the lumia 520
  • I am with you wooooooohooooooooooo +720
  • Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
  • Ya im happy
  • I want it on 256MB of ram :P
  • Agreed! :D
  • WaaaaaaaaOooooo
  • Wooooooooohooooooooooo!!!
  • Yeaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh.....
    There goes rail rush.. Uninstall..
  • +720
    Woopiee \o/
  • There goes minion rush: Uninstall
  • Minion rush is any day better than temple run 2
  • Agree. Far better and more featured. Only if Xbox... it had rocked endless runners already...
  • I highly doubt if they really optimized it for 512mb devices... It doesn't appear like that to me :/
  • Yeah.. Lags after a few games, and crashes when i change the graphic settings. Anyway, nice to see it here, it was long overdue.
    Edit: it worked worse on my bro's android 512mb ram tab. it didn't even give a decent frame rate on that so atleast we get a nice fps.
  • Glad you are being grateful teehee :D
  • Anyway, after an hour, i can certainly say it wasn't optimized. The subway surfer 'fake optimized versions', they also had this problem, that the game runs smooth the first 4-5 runs, but then the fps drops to unplayable and you have to restart the game. Maybe an in built deaddiction method in my 520 ? :-P try and best that android and iOS ! Lol !
  • Have you tried changing the graphic settings to Good instead of Better? I did that and it's working fine without issues on my 625 now.
  • Actually, it works great even on better, but only for the first 4-5 games. After that i have to restart the game. You see, modern tech to ensure i dont waste much time..
  • In my 720 too, it lags badly after 3-4 runs (I guess it happens when the game cache reached its limit). It doesn't crash in my case but its lagging is horrible. Have to restart game for smoother gameplay. Graphics settings doesn't make any difference for me...
    PS: Even minion rush works better than this.
  • Actually, the fps drops after i visit the upgrades area, only then.
  • I have played 30 times on my Lumia 620 it doesn't lag in my phone
  • Well my life just got better this morning lol
  • yes yes yes
  • At least it came to 512mb. Also, with the new ram efficiency with wp8.1 more games are sure to follow
  • I hope its true! I need FIFA 14 badly!
  • Nah it isn't worth it. FIFA 13 was much better control wise. I wont lie the overall aesthetics of FIFA 14 are better but when it comes down to it controls and efficiency are top priority...for me at least -920
  • Well even FIFA 13 is not available for 512MB Devices! Lol
  • Im glad its temple run and not subway since i want xbox achievements to play with my friends =P And plays excellent so the ram thing its an excuse in many cases  =P I think the only one its modern combat that you can say hey that really needs 1gb but u see a lot of patched xaps around so who knows...  
  • Now this people will shut up for awhile!
  • Not for long, Subway Surfers is still not available!
  • "for awhile" haha
  • Lol
  • People wont stop complaining bro.. :P Now they need Candy Crush, Subway Surfers and Daddy Was A Thief etc..
  • Yes i need daddy was a theif lol !
    Candy crush, yes it would be nice as many people say "wp doesn't even have candy crush ?" (girls mostly :P)
  • The main reason why WP sucks so much is because most of his userbase is cool with "keeping his mouth shut" and "not complaining" 
  • long time to wait..
  • thank god for small mercies!!
  • Oh my god !! This is really a big update and WP users with 512MB ram phones are going to be jumping all around. :D Has the recent update solved the graphics issue in L1320 and L520?
  • Yup :) Quite funny that yesterday only some guy was claiming there are "NO" games for 512mb devices. His list of 1gb req. games just came down by one very popular game :)
  • Too little, too late? I hope not
  • Woooooo happiness unlimeteddddd :)
  • I got it...
  • Finally! It took too long, though.
  • This week has been rather phenomenal in terms of updates!
  • Praise the lord.. :P
  • I see what you did there ;D
  • Praise the helix fossil!
  • Praise Bird Jesus
  • Haha, lol
  • WhatsApp's much needed update will make this week epic if it comes!
  • +1520
  • +520^520^520... And hoping that it becomes stable on all 8.1 phones, and that it fixes the scrolling crash.. Its the worst damn thing not to be able to even view your chats.
  • Yes! Thanks for saying that saksham. It's so annoying.
  • You know what ? I dont even use it yet ! :)) but i know it annoys many people, and I'm going to install it too next week so I'm going to be annoyed soon too :)) i guess they've fixed it in the private beta (no way to sign up sorry) so we should be expecting a huge update anytime soon.
  • We windows phone users are just so obsessed with this word " soon".
  • Lol true. Lets hope that we stop having reasons to wait for updates 'soon' very soon.
  • Hail Hydra
  • Lol But Imangai Is Not German :p
  • Is the menu is fixed in this version?
  • Finally on 512 MB devices with xbox live..double treat..
  • Lol.
  • Gee gosh, this is so...gee gosh! I mean great gee gosh xD
  • Waiting for subway suffers too...
  • About time so now everyone can enjoy the run for epic coinage!
  • Now people might buy a highly criticized phone known as the NL 630 with only 512 MB RAM :-P :-P
  • So I laugh or cry for imangi?
  • When for 256mb?
  • damn, beat me to it!
  • 2025... You gotta chill till then
  • Lol ..!! Y don't ppl nw upgrade to a level above 7.X series cause things are way above better than before
  • Lol! *oops*.. I am happy! *and bursts into laughter*
  • Today sounds Lumia another good day for WP! :D
  • Noo.....it shouldn't happen...my 1gb ram Lumia......Mayday ......Mayday
  • Relax, no one is snatching your 1gb ram Lumia...
  • They added the newer artifacts that were  in the Android version.  Easter items and Critters. 
  • Yup!!!!
  • This is great. My 4yr loves Temple Run.
  • Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaa...... Learn something stupid subway surfers
  • Very ambiguous. Lol. The value of punctuation : Learn something stupid, Subway Surfers. AND Learn something, stupid Subway Surfers. Anyway. Great to see 512 MB support.
  • Sweet....!!!!
  • Wow wow wow....great..:-)..
  • Where did Spiderman 2 go?!?!?!
  • Temple Run was never fixed? Temple Run 2 is not as good as Temple Run 1. The only problem it has been abandoned...
  • Oh yeah, now the 720 can have more love :-) WPC App for Android- Lenovo IdeaTab A3000
  • Hahah yeah more love +720 love
  • Excellent! Hopefully more will follow!!!!
  • I mistakenly sent a tip without realising you had posted this already. Sorry!
  • Too late. Your account will be terminated shortly!
  • You will be delt with in a swift but violent manner.
  • You're gonna be dragged to the court now..
  • Actually, chuck Norris is coming for you.
  • You are going to be sued! I typed that using swipe keyboard!
  • Nope, Chuck Norris just called me, he is only sending his goons squad for now, he says he is too old for this shite...
  • Beware, dooms day is approaching you. Your days are over.
  • People still waiting on this old ass game? Lmao.
  • Can't you read the comments ?
  • Lol can YOU read the comments?
  • -_-
  • Can I get all the items now? Cuz I that achievement is impossible.
  • Whether 525 graphics problem solved ?
  • In 520 it has no problem
  • Yes it has been solved. Enjoy !
  • Is it because of Windows Phone 8.1??
     
  • I no think so, because it's available for WP8.0 and 8.1.
  • Yeah! I was thinking the same!
  • Finally
  • Woooooow
  • Hey anyone know that angry birds go will get 512 ram support ?????
  • Yaah am working on it...
  • Lol ! You better not even think about it, MS pulls off such things quickly..
  • LOL! I think he's not working, just joking on it ;)
  • Obviously.. :)
  • The save bug is gone. Thank god!
  • Whut!!? I will finally get to play this game!? Amazing.
  • WOW, I mean, it's only been five months, thank you. I can enjoy it now.
  • FINALLY!  
  • Too happy
  • Yes Sam it changed now I can play it without the graphics lag before I have to always change graphics to low to play on my Lumia 1320

  • Wooooooooooooooooooooo
  • No lag too good

  • Very happy... Downloading now.. Waited for long time...
  • That's nice. Ordered a 520 yesterday.
  • That $44 one?
  • Yeah. It went $80 total because I live in Sweden but it is still almost half price than what the retailers here have. I don't really need it because I have own a 925 but it will make a great gift.
  • That's still a fine deal!
    520 costs like $130-$150 in India. I'd also order it but sadly it cant be delivered here... Glad you got it ;)
  • Smooth running on Lumia 625
  • Game crashes as soon as I change the settings and tap the 'back' option. Lumia 720.
  • They have the critters thingy in the game now
  • Love you WP central
  • Crashes particularly when graphic settings are changed
  • Another good reason to buy a Lumia 630 over the 525 :D
  • US only
  • Finally :P
  • Atlast, thy temple run2 cometh to 512MB! 
  • Crashes when increase the visual quality
  • Yeah hopefully they fix it in next update
  • People be like ..

    512mb support... xD
  • Cool, I wish FIFA 14 follows
  • No bro that's a big game and then u have to compromise with the graphics. Better play it on pc,Xbox or surface
  • Take a look at asphalt 8. Hail Gameloft!..
  • Good stuffs are coming........... 1st the update for battery improvement for wp8.1. and now this app to low end phones! Windows Phones ROCK! Now the only thing I want is KIK messenger with full features to wp!
  • Awesomeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
  • I am having a wired problem with this. I have installed temple run 2 but it wont show up in my app list or games hub. When I check in store it says installed. When I click on view it brings me to start screen. It wont even show up in storage sense. What should I do? How do I manage to uninstall it n reinstated unless I find it? Soft rest did not help. I am having Lumia 720 with 8.1 dp
  • Check my thread about uninstalling apps :) it's in the forum :)
  • I tried tht out but the app that you have mentioned wont work on my window 8.1 it just wont open.
    And my phone is developers preview, wil it still work on it?
  • One more to the my xbox list of games....when i gave up hope...NOW keep calm and unlock achievements or keep running....
  • Great news for 512MB ram device users.
  • My problem its not the 512 MB because i have the lumia 920. My problem is, that the game dosent have progress and until now there is no updates for it .  So Yay, on one part , and boooh on the other hand.
  • The Game Has Been Updated. It has moved up from the Christmas to Easter Now. Has 2 New Artifacts 1. Easter 2. Critter. Still missing the wheel but the game is updated.   Regards, :devil:
  • Wheel is there now...
  • Subway Surfers got an update at the same time...
  • Now make me happier with a n64 emulator!!!

  • Waiting for the Subway Surfers
  • Thank you developers for giving trample run. Now I'll wait for subway surfer arrives for 512MB devices.
  • One thing with windows phone I learnt is patience :D finally temple run 2 damn happy!!
  • Can't install, requires xbox.
  • It's not even that great a game imo. Graphically it's kind of weak and it gets boring so fast! Like I said...imo!
  • Awesome!!!
  • Woohoo Today seems to be my lucky day.I already installed Subway Surfers on my lumia 520 with app deployment and now this came out of the sky :)
  • Finally :D
  • I'll try it out. Quite old now but ill have a go at it
  • +720
  • Imangi 2-0 kiloo
    No xbox live support, No 512mb support = time to ditch subway surfers and kiloo
  • I can see bugs in my L920. The Santa's cap has now been replaced by a nice hat. But if you press the hat Santa 's cap suits on the heads. Secondly there are no new scenes or the beautiful coins that I saw in the Android version. Also the short cut on Android shows a shall touch of pink on the numeric 2 which it doesn't on our update. Please look into it developers at Imangi Studious.
  • one inference that can be drawn is we indians are quite fond of endless runners...(i was just trying to swipe on my laptop keys..my mistake!!! :)well the wait is over...but excitement too..downloaded it just to unlock achievements...gamertag- damnkameena
  • Finnaly..i have lumia 520 and im waiting for subway surf to come..temple run 2 is dope

  • Fuck u android owners with 512 mb ram
  • yippeeeeeeee....... just love my 520...
  • game crashes like shit..... also whenever i chnage visual settings...game closes......i think we can expect this from Imangi Studios that they will never be able to optimize game for windows phone....
  • Finally the Wait is over!! Game runs smoothly in my L520. Never crashed, nice Graphics, faster response. Nothing to complain about. I have played for 1 hour, and found no problems. I think it is the Latest Version as the Android, I could glide on the river! Overall, this is pretty decent game for L520.
  • Superrr!!!!
  • Any word on the subway surfer??
  • Temple run Oz is also optimized for 512 mb ram devices but not Xbox live and paid game.

  • Who cares
  • Thank you imangi!!!
  • But it's not working properly... Crashing now & then... Almost unplayable in my Lumia 720
  • Lagging and crashing
  • Installed it in my SD card. Running quite smoothly in my 520. No lags or crashes so far (although there are some micro stutters sometime but it can be ignored). Playing out in 'best visual quality' :P When I changed the visual quality for the first time all the text in the game disappeared. But it was fixed after restarting the game.
  • Wowwww !!
    Downloading
  • Subway surfers next!!
  • Yeaaahhh, gameplay is smooth on my L520 on best visual quality.
  • Awesome,game, been waiting fo r forever for this game
    Cant wait for subway surf
  • Hi
  • Me too pal.cant wait for subway surfers on my l520
  • Sweet
  • I think every game and apps should be made for the Nokia Lumia 520 because most people have that phone more than any other Windows phone
  • If your game is crashing when you change visual effects to BEST, then try this. Go to settings-->visual effects--> select BEST visual quality--> tap on CREDITS-->hit BACK --> again hit BACK, this time it wont crash! Just tried this in my 720 and it worked!
  • Bugs on lumia 620.. Upgraded ability for the powermeter to fill 10% faster, now it's broken and doesnt fill up at all.
  • Wow
  • well I've hacked my l520 and I've been playing temple run 2 and subway for monthes now
    also I've played and finish modern combat 4 on it and now playing need for speed undercover
    love lumia 520
    I think it's gona be with me for the next year
    then I might update to flagship
    windowsphone suprised me
    an x iphone user :)
  • Lumia 1320 graphic problems. Cant play
  • more bugs..upgraded the pickup spawn ability...now there are pickups all over the place... Am I the only one getting those weird bugs?
  • Same here... I think Imangi will release an update early to fix this weird bug...
  • For thoes who are facing Missing text issue when changing graphics to high. Follow the steps below 1. Open the game and run first time. Then pause and go to main menu. 2. Open settings and set visual quality to better and then best 3. Dont touch back. Touch Privacy. It will open IE. Press back and then press back in game and you will get full graphics with shadow on your 520 or other 512mb device. ENJOY !!!
  • I'm installed on my phone Lumia 620
    When subway surfer, angry birds go!, support for device
    512 Mb ram ?
    Please you tell me !
  • Wow its very simple.
