Previously Thought to be Released Sometime This Month, Temple Run is Not Ready for Android Yet

Another update from the Temple Run team on Facebook has some people raging a bit more this Monday. Unfortunately, back in January, Temple Run was said to be ready for launch this month, but over the weekend, hopes have been crushed. The Temple Run team states that they want to make sure the experience users receive is flawless, so we can understand why they’re taking their time. According to their statement on Facebook, they are actually in beta testing right now, so we shouldn’t have too much longer to wait. In the mean time, prepare your torches and pitchforks until we have an official release date.

    All this stupid game does is put a an Airpush on the phone.  I bet iPhone does not get Airpush.  Who the hell is running Android Market.  They should be fired for letting this happen.  This is why I’m getting an iPhone for my up grade!

    temple run is lame as hell. i dont get the big deal.

  • JulianZHuang

    iphone user got bored with that game already. my friend dont even play it any more…

    While this may be an good game, i loaded it over the weekend while it was available and just today tried to give it a run. It wanted me to share it via facebook first which was disheartening.. so i canceled out.  Now I have ads popping up in my notification bar.  I have uninstalled it and will never install it again.  Galaxy Nexus.  Soooo, FYI, this game is pure bloat.

      That might have been the malware app that was in the market last week. Google removed it.

      • Haproot

         LoL ok well that’s good to know.  Someone linked me to it.  So by removing it am I bloat free or does anybody think i should restore from a recent backup?.. haha.

        No ads since i removed it.

    A boring game requiring you to only swipe left, up, down, or right, and to turn your device slightly. Its boring, and has little to offer. I played this on my iPod Touch, and it was deleted in less than a day. It’s an over hyped game that requires little skill which is why it appeals to the masses. 

  • Ryan Scott Miller

    Couldn’t care less.

  • JMac726

    Whatever. When are we getting Scramble with Friends?

    • Tsak6789

      Well it took a few months to get hanging with friends, so I’ll look for it in May.

    These new animated cartoons are so FUGLY.

    Ever since playing Temple Run (for like 5 minutes) on a friend’s device “that must not be named”, I was hooked, and let me tell you, it’s a fun game and will hopefully be even better over on the good side, Android.

    Just wish they would hurry up with it. Also, if I was them, I’d definitely release it in the first part of Mar…because on Mar. 22, Angry Birds Space will be released…and even though Temple Run is extremely popular in its own right, it’s no where near the popularity that is Angry Birds. So they may want to steer clear from the Angry Bird Space launch, so they can have a good launch on Android.

    the same people complaining about it not being out yet are the same ones that would be complaining if it was released with bugs.  grow up people and get a life.

  • For everyone who is sad/mad about it, try Running Fred it is like temple run on steroids with better graphic running on wall, and most importantly FREE

    +1 this so everyone tries it

    • Michael Forte

      Just tried this game and it is pretty fun. Thanks for the suggestion.

    • JulianZHuang

      nope, the graphic arent any better than temple run. 

  • All I have to say is, that picture was on memebase last week. 😛

    • Unlikely, seeing as how I made it myself as I was writing the post 😛

    “they want to make sure the experience users receive is flawless”

    I’m calling BS. I’ve yet to see a game ported from iOS that didn’t come with significant reduction in quality. The closest I’ve seen is probably Cut the Rope, and that still has far worse graphics than on the iOS version (no 720p version).

    inb4 Fruit Ninja – worse performance, lags behind in updates, and also doesn’t support hi-res devices.

    I’m frustrated, to say the least. The most Android-supportive game that I can think of is Shortyz Crosswords. Fantastic app.

  • Michael Forte

    People say this game is awesome but I’ve seen videos of it and it didn’t look that fun to me. I guess it doesn’t take much to entertain iFans.

    • Fakemail

      i love android but i have play this on my cousins iphone and its pretty fun.

    • Sirx

      It’s one of those things that you don’t get until you try it for yourself.  No, watching someone play Temple Run is infinitely dull.  But playing it on my girlfriend’s Ipad is horrifically addictive.

      • Michael Forte

        I guess I’ll give it a go when it comes out.

    • sillyrabbittricks4kids

      no ilove

    • EvanTheGamer

      You have to like the “running game” genre in order to actually like Temple Run. But even though, it’s still quite fun once you try it out for yourself.

  • Higher_Ground

    Can I assume if I don’t already know what Temple Run is that it won’t interest me?

  • Jason Purp

     It makes me kind of upset, but at least the devs want things to be as good as possible. I can’t complain.
