Temple Raid (FREE, universal binary)

We are excited that our new title, Temple Raid is beginning to be available on the App Store as a universal binary as the world keeps rotating through the time zones. Please follow this link and have a look at the trailer if you cannot find it listed yet.


Peace between the tribes is fading as the Shamans ask for larger and more impressive temples to be built for the spirits. Raid gold from other players to level up and purchase better bricks and idols. Build amazing temple structures and store your own gold safely.

Temple Raid is a casual physics multiplayer game that offers a new hybrid of turn-based and live gameplay. To build larger temples, you need to level up. Unlock bricks of different shapes and materials, even spirit idols, that protect you from other players. Raid your opponents from a slingshot in a tree. Try to crack their pots of gold. Whatever falls out is yours.

SLINGSHOT ACTION LIVE AND TURN-BASED. Find out how other players hide and protect their gold in uniquely designed fortresses. Shoot coconuts, rocks, or even grenades. Your objective is to crack or knock over their pots of gold. Challenge your friends, build a small protective structure, place your bet in a turn-based "Short Game", and play to the last nugget. See everyone else on your map and even raid their massive main fortresses with heavy rocks and grenades.

BE THE ARCHITECT. Use our novel touch scheme to build impressive temple structures from individual bricks. Place your pots of gold where nobody can crack or knock them over. Level up to earn access to different kinds of building blocks made of wood or rock, or even place idols that punish your adversaries when disturbed. Always make sure your gold is protected well. It won't take long until your wealth is spotted.

FREE GOLD FOR ALL. The spirits will gift you 10,000 gold once you complete the tutorial. Collect 1,000 gold as tax from your people every eight hours. Regular players get a bonus. Join the Shaman and consume a vision from the spirits, be rewarded with even more gold in your hands.

LEVEL UP ON ALL DEVICES. You can activate the use of iCloud in our game settings to add up level progress across all your devices. Turn-based matches will be accessible anywhere you go, challenge a friend on your iPad, claim their last nugget on the go with your iPhone. For everything else, two devices mean two maps: with twice as many temples to build, and with even two Gold Mines to exploit.

PLAY WITH YOUR FRIENDS. Turn-based games are most fun with your friends.

Urgent Update

Status update: How an emergency update aims to address turn-based match congestion between levels L01 and L04 turning the unexpectedly large number of downloads over the first weekend to an advantage. Also, a severe bug has been fixed that could have destroyed your main temple although we haven't received complaints.

The update is imminent. We will push it between 12:30 and 1:00 pm UTC.

Attention: If you read this after the update to Temple Raid 1.0.1 was published, and you had not taken your turn, you may in some cases be presented with an error message until you update to Temple Raid 1.0.1.

We took the following two steps over the weekend to make things move more quickly.

Players in level L01 and L02 are only auto-matched against players of the exact same level. Only from L03 on, player groups span multiple levels. This ensures that undecided L01 players cannot block your map if you advanced to L02, which should happen with your first win. By L03, you are almost certainly matched only with dedicated players.

Match timeouts. If your opponents do not take their turn within 12 hours, you will be able to claim the match. Your gold will be refunded in full and you will receive a timeout bonus. Your opponent will lose their bet.

In addition, we fixed a rare but severe bug that could occur at very low connection speeds if in the map view, you tapped on a turn-based match your opponent resigned from, but then immediately tapped also to visit your main temple. This has been fixed.

Please also be aware that while our server is doing well, the update will increase the burden by quite a bit. We will be watching things closely.

Good luck everyone, have fun, and please post comments here, as we are working on a less urgent update. Support us also by telling your friends and by sharing the App Store link.
