UPDATE: Imangi Studios Will Not Be Releasing Temple Run For Android On Feb 9th. But It Is Coming Soon!
If you are an Android user, this is a dream come true. Yes, Temple Run, the most popular iOS Game is now coming to Android soon, mostly 9th of this month. With millions of downloads, Temple Run topped the charts in iOS Gaming. Developed by Imangi Studios, the Temple Run is yet to be made available for Android, the most used mobile OS.
There were several reasons for why Temple Run was not available on Android so far – May be there weren’t enough mobiles on the market to be capable of running this Game smoothly. So Hardware could have been a major reason. Or it could have been the complexity to develop such Addictive graphic game play on Android. Whatever be the speculation, finally its Official that Imangi will be making the game available for Android. Its no surprise that, there’s a new team involved in developing the Android version. Will it still be Free? I guess so. Initially, when the game was launched for iPhone, it was priced at 0.99 cents. Then the in-app purchases made the game to be free 🙂
Since then, there have been 20 million downloads, 7 million Daily Active Users and many best app awards for Temple Run. The game play is simple. You are an explorer running through the Temple, collecting coins, power ups and escape from the animals that chase you. This is an addictive cum endless game, which makes it a huge hit among mobile gamers. You try to beat your own score and eventually end up playing hours of Temple Run. The in-app purchases are not compulsory as you can earn them as you play more and more. This makes Temple Run as one of the best free games made ever.
Watch out for Temple Run in Android Marketplace on February 9, 2012. 🙂
