Temple Run 2 update bounds forth with Easter theme, cloud syncing

16 Apr

Temple Run 2 has a colorful new update for Easter! Players can now unlock bunny ears for their various endless-running heroes, and collect eggs rather than coins on their route. Besides the holiday theme, Temple Run 2 has also added cloud saving support, which is hugely important when playing between your iPhone and iPad. At the end of every run, there’s also a new wheel spin that potentially provides you with new power-ups (including some limited-time Easter holiday artifacts).

Temple Run 2 remains one of the most popular endless runners out there, thanks to breakneck speeds, polished 3D graphics, and a certain goofy charm. Temple runners, what’s your high score?
