Temple Run arrives on Android, better late than never some say

As expected, Imangi Studios delivered on their promise to bring Temple Run to Android on March 27th.  As the calendar turned from yesterday to today, Temple Run became available for download through the Play Store — much to the happiness of Android device owners.  It has received an average rating of 4.4 in the Play Store so far, with many of the comments being positive.  In addition, it requires devices running Android 2.1 and up, which should be the majority of the Android community.

Temple Run experienced immense popularity and success on the iOS platform, so I imagine Android users will enjoy the game just as much on Android.  With Scramble with Friends and Draw Something recently launching on Android, we now have multiple awesome apps to keep us busy and entertained throughout the day!  Feel free to click the link below to download Temple Run from the Play Store.

Imangi Studios on Tuesday announced that its hit iOS game, Temple Run, will be coming to the Android Market on March 27th. Temple Run is an Indiana Jones-like ”runner” game that has users sprint through obstacles and escape the dangers of the jungle using gestures that make the character jump, duck and move from side to side. “We are excited to finally share the Android release date with our fans who have been so enthusiastic and supportive of Temple Run,” said Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi Studios. “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 is currently the top free app and top grossing app in the iOS App Store, with over 40 million downloads and 7 million daily active users. The game is free to play and features in-app purchases that allow users to buy different characters and power-ups for higher scores. The company previously announced the game would be available in February, however it was delayed for unknown reasons. Read on for the Imangi’s press release.

Imangi Studios Brings Temple Run to the Android Marketplace March 27

WASHINGTON, D.C. – March 6, 2012 – Imangi Studios today announced that Temple Run, the Top Grossing App and Top Free App in the App Store in January 2012, will be released for Android devices on March 27. Free to download, Temple Run challenges players to test their reflexes as they race down ancient temple walls and along sheer cliffs. With endless gameplay, players collect coins as they jump, slide and run to escape the evil monkeys guarding the temple while avoiding obstacles.

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

The iOS version of Temple Run for iPhone and iPad boasts over 40 million downloads in the App Store since its debut in August 2011.

The wildly popular Temple Run will reach Android by March 27

For quite a few months, Android users could only sit by restlessly watching their friends with iDevices playing Temple Run.  Fortunately, the day for proud Android owners to play Temple Run is just a couple of weeks away.  On March 27th, Temple Run will launch on the Android Market through Imangi Studios.  In addition, the game will be available for free on the Market and is sure to provide hours of entertainment.

If you are skeptical of how well Temple Run was received in the Apple Appstore, then consider a few stats published by Imangi Studios.  Temple Run became the Top Grossing app and the Top Free App during the month of January.  Moreover, it has been downloaded over 40 millions times since it launched on iOS in August of 2011.

While Imangi Studios has not mentioned which versions of Android will support the game, I imagine anything higher than Android 2.0/Android 2.1 will be fine.  Again, in just three short weeks, Temple Run will finally be available on Android for the vast majority of users to enjoy.
