For those looking to run Temple Run 2 on their 512 MB Windows Phone, you still have some waiting to do. This morning, version 22.214.171.124 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).
The game, like a lot of ported versions, initially lacked 512 MB support. Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore tweeted that this was being worked on and support will come in a later update for Temple Run 2. The Windows Phone ecosystem is a little off balance with the low-cost Lumia 520 from Nokia making a surprising dent in internal market share. As a result, developers are having to play catch up by optimizing for that hardware instead of shooting for more high-end optimizations.
A few readers have noted that with today’s 1.6.1 update, the “review bug” is now fixed. We have only seen this intermittently, but for some users after each run, they were greeted with a “review this game” nag screen each and every time. Hopefully that’s the not case any longer. We’re also going to guess that there are a few other under the hood changes, but developer Imangi Studios is usually not too forthcoming on details.
We’ll keep an eye out for that coveted 512 MB update in the future, but for now, if you’re a Temple Run 2 fan, you can pick up the latest edition here in the Store. Windows Phone 8 only.
