Temple Run popular iOS game heading to Android next month

January 19, 2012
149

For us in the world of Android we might not see or hear about some of the fun games over on that other platform, but occasionally they have some hugely popular games that haven't quite made their way to Android yet. Take Temple Run for example. It's been the top iOS game for a few months and has seen over 20 million downloads. I'm happy to report it will be landing on Android next month.

Temple Run is free but still currently the top grossing app on that other platform and has over 7 million players daily that are using in-app purchases or just playing for the sheer fun of it. With Android being the number one smartphone in the world this is a huge market that surely will love this game. It was originally $0.99 cents at launch but the in-app purchases have taken over. Most games like Angry Birds and many others have launched for free on Android and we expect the same to happen here.

With Temple Run you basically play an explorer running through the temples and being constantly chased by things like scary monkeys or other animals. It was designed with smartphones in mind and can be played with just one hand if needed -- so this wont feel like a console port while playing and enjoying it. The entire story on how this team of a husband and wife made one of the biggest iOS games as of late, and that it will be landing on Android next month to rule our world is at the source below.

Reminder: Lands for Android on February 9th according to rumors. Who's excited?

Update: Temple Run will not launch this week, should still come by end of February according to developers. More details available by clicking here.

    You said Androd being the number 1 smart “Phone”, Android Is an OS. A phone would be like the Galaxy s. so I’ll correct you. Android is the most used OS in the world, for phones.

      That’s why u have to pay for iPhone apps. Shall I say more?

      • ….

        The idea of the droid is incredible, their thoughts and plans are amazing, but the functionality of the phones are terrible. I had a Droid for like a month before i started to hate it and experience horrible lags, lags that i have never experienced with the Iphone. Droid has cooler stuff and its cheaper, but the Iphone works (why do you think the apps cost money? because people actually code them correctly and they work well). Shall i say more?

    iPhone is just the fool’s android. Only idiots think it’s worth getting. For example, the comment below…

    • seen both sides

      No, actually, the iphone is the iphone’s iphone. It has nothing to do with intelligence level, only to do with personal preference. The android is a great os, in face im on one now, but app wise, the iphone is better by far

         I thought they were taking the free with ads approach like Angry Birds, but who really knows.

        Support the devs — it’s a small team and will probably only be a dollar if anything

  • RabidWookie

    I switched from the Razr to the GN, and i am VERY pissed, the razr had great signal in a call as well as the 4G, when i got the GN i immediately noticed a HUGE difference.. and not for the better. i now have 0 – 1 bar in my house and in my town at all times, when my wife has a samsung fascinate and she will have full bars and my friend ( on verizon ) will have his iphone 4s and he has full bars….I have always been a loyal android fan.. but now im actually debating iphone 4s……*slams head on desk*
