Temple Run Android Release Date: March 27

Temple Run, one of the most popular free games in the Apple App Store, will soon make its debut on Android as well. According to developer Imangi Studios, the Temple Run Android release date will be March 27, although the game was previously supposed to reach Google’s mobile OS in February.

The endless gameplay of Temple Run is fairly simple by nature: collect as many gold coins as you can, using gestures to jump, slide, duck, and run, while evading the evil monkeys guarding the temple and all the obstacles in your path. Here is a YouTube video showcasing the Temple Run gameplay:

Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi Studios, on Temple Run’s port to Android: “We are excited to finally share the Android release date with our fans who have been so enthusiastic and supportive of Temple Run,[…] By expanding to more mobile devices, we hope to provide the same addictive and fast-paced gameplay to an entirely new group of players”.

Temple Run originally launched on iOS in August 2011, quickly becoming one of the most popular free games in the App Store, but also one of the most popular free apps available on the iPad and iPhone. Currently the seventh most-popular free game in Apple’s App Store, Temple Run was downloaded more than 40 million times, and boasts roughly 7 million daily active users. The Indiana Jones-styled game was also the Top Free App and the Top Grossing App on iOS for the month of January 2012. These are impressive figures, to say the least.

How do you guys feel about Temple Run? Will you be grabbing the free Android game, once it gets released on March 27, or will you stick to your Angry Birds instead? Let us know in the comment section below!

  • John

    I’ve been waiting for this since January. I’m glad that it is finally getting released.

  • Im excited for it to come to the blackberry playbook except people may lose intrest in temple run by the time it’s released and please don’t put a cost to it, keep it free!

    • BBPB26

      they have no plan to submit this app to blackberry appworld, but you can convert the temple run.apk to bar file then sideload it to playbook. I am sure that playbook version will come 2 hours after the android version release on 27 of march.

  • George

  • lill tt

    Is it possible to download this app onto blackberry PlayBook?

    • BBPB26

      crackberrynians will try to convert temple run to bar file when it appear in android market, if it works then you’re lucky but if not then sorry, let’s hope it will work in playbook when converted to bar file.

  • SubySaleem

    I really can’t wait for temple run to come out on android. Quick question, will it work on htc wildfire s?

    • Ticlar_rocks

      It says android dumbass, so if u have android OS then it will work.

      • Jon

        I think by work he meant, will the wildfire be able to cope with the graphics… because wildfire is one of the cheaper androids and the graphic processors on them dont work as well on the bigger ones it’s an understandable question, I too am hoping temple run will work on wildfire.

  • hhijk

  • NV22C34

    can a phone with a android software of 2.1 with the original market not google play get it?

    • Ashipod13

      Probably not as it still has the android market, if you had google play and android 2.1 then it probably wouldntmatter

      Also Your device might not be supported at the very beginning because android is fragmented
