Temple Run Coming To Android March 27th

Hit iOS game Temple Run caused quite a shockwave in the mobile ecosystem when it was released in August of 2011 and seems to be all the rage these days. Android users have been feeling left out as they eagerly await its release onto the Android Market. There hasn’t been much news up until now, but we finally have a release date to look forward to and that date is March 27th.

“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.”

We’ll soon be able to enjoy the endless joy of outrunning evil monkeys and collecting coins in a game that has already been downloaded by over 40 million iOS users. Temple Run will be free and feature the same simple swipe and tilt controls found on iOS. Android may soon have another Angry Birds on its hands and productivity in the U.S. is set to hit an all-time low after its release. Kidding aside, it looks like it could be fun and I’m looking forward to trying it out. Hit up the source link for more information about Temple Run and its creators Imangi Studios.
