Temple Run for Android delayed till March at least

February 25, 2012

So, Temple Run. Easily one of the most-anticipated Android games in the world right now. Android owners have been waiting patiently (though judging by the comments on our previous stories, not too patiently) for months. And according to the game's official Facebook page, they're going to have to wait a little longer. The deveoper posted that the game is taking longer than expected to complete, though it's still coming along. The post says that it'll give Facebook followers at least a week's notice before the game is released - which means that if the notice came later today, Temple Run still wouldn't be coming until March 3rd. At the absolute earliest.

For the uninitiated, Temple Run is an iOS game by developer Imangi Studios. In a nod to the original Indiana Jones, the player must control an adventurer fleeing from a temple, pursued by hoards of demonic monkeys. Various touch gestures allow you to manipulate your character, jumping, dodging, turning or ducking as necessary. It's a bit like a 3D version of Bit Trip Runner. The developers announced back in November that the game was headed to Android, but as development draws to a close eager fans have been disappointed time and again with vague delays.

Imangi takes care to note that any game pretending to be Temple Run on the Android Market or elsewhere is a fake, until their full app is released. That's not without precedent: like many popular iOS converts, copies and fakes have been appearing in the Market with depressing regularity.  The game is in the final Beta stages and should be wrapping up soon - but not before next Saturday. Keep it civil in the comments section, folks.

    I doubt that anybody really cares about it anymore. The wait has just made the game seem stale now…

  • Bspiker99

    I really want this to be posted for the android. It will make so many more people happy

  • Bleh

    I really want the game, but I’m sick if waiting. Thinking bout buying an iPod touch. Could use for music, and games. That’s why I bought this phone, but now I’m kinda regretting it if all the good things are on iOS. Shoulda got an iPhone.

  • Memekisssme

    This is crap

  • Ralphie

    After waiting this long, what’s the point of still having this game? I really don’t want this game anymore.

  • Uyiogieriakhi

    This is bullshit

  • Mmalakai1

    well what a buzz kill for the last days of february. i was so excited for the realease of this game on the android platform. if apple is paying them to hold it exclusive to the ios so be it. developers will sell there soul for a small bit of cash.shame… smh… i dont think that this game will get the users it would have if this game had been released in a reasonable time frame. i just hate the fact that alot of developers favor ios instead of bringing there app to both platforms with all the same content. ios developers dont care about android users so i stop supporting them, by not downloading or buy there app. the true android developers and one that dont discriminate  on both platforms is the ones that i will support.

  • Sk8tr_dude86

    I love how everyone is bitching sooo much. Chill the fuck out, its a fucking videogame. I’m sure everyone will still download it. All your bitching and moaning isn’t going to accomplish jack shit.

  • Wyattblevins

    FUCK THE DAMN SHIT OUT OF ANDROID AND TEMPLE RUN JUST FUCKIN FORGET ABOUT IT

  • Jne606@aol.com

    I got an app from imagi studios and its called temple run I press play and it say it will come out in two days and its for Android

  • http://twitter.com/iBolski Ivan Samuelson

    People need to realize that programming for iOS (iphone) is different than for Android. Also, with Android, you have different hardware configurations, so I’m sure they’re trying to make it work for as many Droids as possible. Different hardware configurations can make things more difficult for the programmers.

    I for one will be patient. No need to get testy, people. 

  • Justm3

    Wow come on calm down it is not like you are going to die without the game and you guys don’t know how long it takes to make a game lke this even I don’t know, but I do know it takes a long time.

  • H.B.K

    Uggh I waited for this game to come out and all I can say forget about it because all this is doing is raising people hopes up and dropping them down hard and disappointing everyone

  • Gunda

    Ok, I was reading all these comments. I agree that making this game needs a long time and you should respect Imangi for making it for android and be thankful. But you all are swearing about it and being angry. I don’t understand it. And after all, it’s just a game. No need to be so stressed. So I’ll be different and say – thank you for making this game available on androids, I’m happy about that and I can wait a few weeks. P.S. Sorry about my bad English

  • Si

    Man, there are some sad, sad people out there…

  • Melibatista29

    Please make it sure that the game is wort waiting,i almost want to buy iphone just to play it but android phones are cool so please dont delay the game longer

  • Gabbie

    Deathkn3ll, the fan app you have downloaded has nothing to do with imangi (the makers of temple run). It is some 3rd party doing the countdown based on what they think.
    Its only a game people!

  • minesh

    i really dont see how temple run is any good or how people find it addictive.. personally, i dont care whether it comes to android but imagi have let down their fans on android

    • eric

  • Wcampbell054

  • Jim

    They need to stop getting us excited for no reason…when they made it for the iphone they should’ve started making it for android too. This is rediculous we’ve been waiting way too long. HURRY

  • Guest

    Seriously?! People around me have already lost their interest in this game. No one is going to play even if the game releases now.

    Very sad :(:(

  • androidsucks

    Im not gonna play the damn game if it comes nonbody has interest in it stupid assholes saying they gonna release it 

  • androidsucks

    BOOOOO BOOOOOOO TEMPLE RUN SUCKS!!!!!☟

  • Lilly Ann LaPiedra

    This is getting really aggervating. They keep postponing the day! By the time it comes out nobody will be interested in the game.

  • annoying me

     OK. honestly every single person that has commented is right. we’ve been waiting for MONTHS. by the time this game even comes out, there’s going to be a new top game for iPhones and no one will want temple run. its better to at least give us an accurate date rather than giving us a bunch of delayed dates. its pissing off a lot of people and its definitely not professional of you guys. yeah, we get it your trying your best but don’t get everyone’s hopes up for nothing. I downloaded the temple run countdown only to find it the next morning, delayed again.. i’ve been annoyed by all this and at this point, i don’t give two shits about temple run anymore and  could care less about waiting for it to come. You’ve let all your android owning customers down. t-_-t

    • Deziree_rab

      cum on bring da game oun stop bsjng driod is a better proyduct that iphoyne any wat u can t download files o it .it is just a name apple i rather eat an apple than too buy apple phobes

  • Pissedoffplayer

    im really addicted to the game right now! because i have no itouch/ipad/iphone to play on, i’m pissed off that the game keeps getting postponed. its pretty much the best free game out there. i understand that they need to make the game perfect for android users, but i don’t see how they need to keep pushing back the day they plan to release it.

    • blah

      if you have no apple products, how can you be addicted?

      • Pissedoffplayer

         i play it on my friends stuff when we hang

    • Turkey Mama

       I agree with you. The game does need to be perfected but their loosing a large amount of downloads with postponing the date of release.

      • Pissedoffplayer

        Man, you stole my name! >:O

  • Brandon Moss70

    Fuck Steve Jobs.

  • Anonymous

    So many people raging about ios vs android. They think apple is better becausr they have a few apps
    While this is true, apple is extremely limiting in what the phone can do i.e.you cannot download files straight from the internet onto your iphone like you can on a droid. Android is definiteky superior even without a few apps (which really arent even that great)

  • superspeller

    I can wait a little longer i guess:/

    • Konunaku

      you have no other choice unless you switch to the iphone or get an ipod

  • REallyfale

    I seriously don’t get why people would switch to iPhone (downgrade) just for a damn app.
    You can either wait few days (or weeks) or just waste 200 bucks for just an app. Think about it. Common freaking sense lol.

  • Rondale015

      apple products are not the most expensive products in the world! MOTHERFUCKER, if we have an android product it’s not because we can’t afford an apple product, it’s because apple sucks!, as simple as that. I bet you have a little fuckin ipod touch which is not more expensive than $400.. or let me guess mmm a Iphone 4 or 4s that its not more expensive than $400 too. OHH and i bet that you have an 8GB model of any of these. So dont fuckin open your mouth.

      • Dustinbeaudet14
