Temple Run beat Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja and Minecraft for the award. The award continues 2013’s success with the number one ranked launch of Temple Run 2 and Temple Run Oz.
Nickelodeon said more than 387 million votes were cast online in more than 22 countries, in 20 categories, spanning film, television, books, music and sport for the annual award show which happened in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi, said: “Temple Run has evolved into something so much bigger than us. The game has performed beyond our wildest dreams, and we are thrilled that gamers and fans around the world have embraced Temple Run.”
Temple Run has also become a full licensed programme handled in the UK by Lisle International. Gayle Tarrant from Lisle commented: “This award echoes what we all know about Temple Run and that it is as popular with kids as it is with adults. We are absolutely delighted with the results and to have Temple Run chosen over so many prestigious names is amazing. This all signifies great things to come for Temple Run the brand and the opportunities it holds for our prospective partners.”
