Temple Run, probably one of the biggest games on iOS is finally coming over to Android. After dozens of fakes which appeared on the Google Play Store (still a stupid name), the developers behind it have realised there is a lot of demand for the app on the Android platform.
Now you may be thinking, what is so interesting about a run and jump game? Don’t worry, I thought the same. I thought it was way too overhyped, but after a few goes on my iPhone it’s actually bloody addictive.
The developers have confirmed the game will be on the Android market on the 27th of March. It’ll be a free download and will include in-app purchases, just like the iOS version. The app has been downloaded over 40 million times on the iOS platform which truly shows how viral this game has got.
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.
