Temple Run Will Launch on Android March 27 for Free

And just like that, Temple Run is official on Android. Well, it’s not here yet, but it will be March 27 for free. So until that day, you can stop trolling the Android Market and stressing over whether or not the latest fake is real or not. Because it won’t be, again, until March 27. All good? 

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.

  • JD22

    Oh your cool because you coment against android talking about apple is better. Stfu how about that. Now Abi stop nahging me about this damn game XP

  • HURRY UP! ):

  • Wow, so much complaining over the release date of a game.  Not everyone has Androids and iPods and iPads.  Some of us just have android devices and are excited to see another fun game, which is new to us, come out on the device we own.  I’m glad the devs have made an Android version and hope that they took the time to get it right.  Next year, I’ll play Draw Something and enjoy it, I’m sure.

      Draw something has been out on android for over a month… Just a heads up incase you’ve been missing out 😛

    I don’t want temple run , I don’t cares about ios vs android , I don’t care about iPad 3 ….. I want god damn ICS on my rezound already !!!!!!!!!! With google already prepping another version of it OS and the current field hasn’t even updated to ICS yet I’m getting kinda sick of the whole market .

  • LionStone

    My sister’s battery on her iPhone just died…yes, they die too. Instagram? Really?

  • JulianZHuang

  • Srmack

    -___- Why though?

  • Jnmigr

    Turn off your 4g and it will last that long too.

  • Blood

    On my ipod i play it so i dont need it for my android cellphone
    And i honestly think apple does not wanna share this app
    Because although its a free app they still get money everytime someone
    Downloads it off of apple market so if i were apple company i would not share
    This app with android

  • iNfAMOUS70702

    This game is old news but good to finally see on android…most iOS users (myself included) that I know have since moved on to draw something

  • Arizzxo

    Even if you don’t like it you should at least download it the day its released.. perhaps us Android users can put up strong enough numbers to show all iOS devs that its worth it to port their apps

  • drparty

    This and battery life. The two biggest android problems of the day. Battery life is improving but man is it annoying that the majority of the new and cool games start out on iOS and never the other way around. Zombie highway? Disc driving? Finally we got doodle jump and tiny tower. Still waiting on tiny wings (not tiny bee or dragon or whatever).

  • by the time iOS games make their way to Android no body wants anything to do with them, it’s getting a little ridiculous

  • EvanTheGamer

    WTF?! March 27th? First it’s “near the end of February”, then “It’s not going to be available in Feb. but it will be in March” and now “End of March.” Damn…

    PLUS, they lied…they said they’d reveal the release date FIRST on Android(and a week before), which they have yet to do. lol

    From Facebook: “You will be the first to know the real release date.”Sure, it’ll be awesome when it finally gets released…but damn, a month delay…wow.

    • Mack

      Chill buddy it’s just a game. They have lives too. 


    on a side note…Where is Action Movie FX?!


    Finally!  i can now go back to the galaxy s III rumors and the google tablet rumors to feed my OCD!

  • I look forward to playing it when all my iPhone acquaintances are playing some other game, since this is already on the way out. Great timing devs!

  • Kid from “big daddy”

    I have a belly button…

    • That’s abnormal. You should get that checked out.

    • I can wipe my own ass

    About time. I had to say it but I do use an ipad because it was given to me by my work so I can use it with my virual college books, however I have been playing this game on that for a couple months now very addictive nice to see it on android. I wasnt surprised about the price, I am shocked that a game this good is free on iOS.

      All this over a game? Geez, I too look forward to it, so my daughter can play it on her Dell streak, I may try it on my Gnex, but other than that nice to see it finally come to android, and for free yet.

  • i already dont play it anymore on my ipod. it took too long to come out. why bother.

    • biggy&twopac
