To celebrate the holiday season, Disney is discounting twelve of their apps. At $0.49 per app, it is certainly a deal worth taking a look at and bests SEGA’s sale that started yesterday. And Disney is not offering a random group of apps. Impressive games such as Temple Run: Oz, Wreck-It Ralph, and Where’s My Water? are included. Disney says to “Celebrate the holidays, and download this app for 75% off exclusively on Google Play™! Don’t forget to check out other great Disney Holiday Magic deals!”
Great news for those of you who can’t get enough Temple Run in your life! Imangi has teamed up with Disney Pixar and just released the new an improved Temple Run: Brave edition. Based off of the new Disney movie, The Brave, you play as the movie’s main character Merida, and run through temples that have much improved graphics over the original Temple Run. Not only are the visuals completely new, you also get to shoot a bow to try and hit moving targets with arrows. This definitely adds another level of difficulty so don’t let the Disney theme fool you. This game is just as cool, if not better than the original and I highly recommend you check it out. There is one thing, though. This time around they are asking for $.99 in the Play Store but I am going to have to say it’s worth it. Jump past the break for the official trailer and Play Store links.
Temple Run received an update today that finally adds a new feature. Wallpapers. It’s not a huge feature but at least you don’t have to see those “coming soon” messages in the store anymore. Along with 3 works of art comes a few bug fixes as well, so if you have yet to receive the update hit up either Google Play Store link below. For those of you who don’t mind spoilers, jump past the break to see what the new wallpapers look like. They actually look to be done by a graphic artist and are not just screenshots of the game. Pretty neat!
Google Play Store
Looking over my Android apps that received an update today, Temple Run is one of the more notable ones along with the Chrome browser. The uber popular game has already been downloaded over 10 million times and has only been available in the Play Store for just over three weeks. It is pretty amazing how fast this game has spread and the developers obviously want to keep the millions of users happy.
Today’s update brings Twitter integration as well as a few bug fixes such as; a bug that made it difficult to score points, a bug that caused the runner to accelerate too fast, and a few spelling errors. On top of making the app run better for users, the Twitter integration allows you to tweet your score after completing a run through the Temple. This may prove beneficial to some of you, and more of an annoyance to others. I dunno.
If you have yet to receive the update or haven’t even tried the game, go ahead and hit up one of the links below. The game is free and has almost been perfected at this point. Now if I could only perfect my hand-eye coordination and I would be set!

You know a game is a global phenomenon when it’s a top trend on twitter and has a number of the nations major sports personalities tweeting their top scores to boast to their team mates. Manchester United superstar Wayne Rooney was quick to post his latest top score, tagging in his team mates in a gloating fashion. With nearly 50 million downloads from Apple’s App Store and unanimous critical acclaim across the web, Temple Run has finally hit the Google Play Store.
To set the scene, picture a young Indiana Jones being chased by a pack of rabid monkeys and you’re pretty much there. Why our character is running and where he’s trying to go is a mystery but this game certainly doesn’t rely on a storyline to keep you hooked.
