Over the last few months we’ve noticed a lot of interest surrounding the release of Temple Run for Android, today we can confirm that a release date isn’t too far away, in fact some sources suggest that it could arrive in a matter of days.
A recent post on the official Temple Run Facebook can be seen here, it reveals that game is still being developed at the moment and no exact release date has been given, however contrary to this a recent article over at TechGadgetsWeb suggests that it will in fact arrive on February 9th. The guys at Imangi Studios have not officially announced this to our knowledge (we’ve checked the official website, Twitter feed and Facebook page) – therefore don’t take it too seriously for now.
Some may say that the Android version of Temple Run has taken far too long to develop, but Imangi say that they want to ensure that the developer’s first-ever Android app is solid when it arrives. We agree with this decision as let’s face it with so much hype surrounding its release its bound to come under lots of scrutiny.
Until we hear official word from trustworthy sources you should watch out for fake Temple Run apps which may show up at the Market, perhaps ‘Like’ the official Temple Run Facebook page or follow Imangi on Twitter to stay up-to-date.
Since Temple Run has hit the App Store in mid-2011 it has seen a huge amount of success, in fact when it cost $0.99 it became the top grossing app available for iOS, the free version of the app then hit the top spot in the free app charts – therefore it is no surprise to see such hype surrounding the Android release.
For those of you haven’t already played Temple Run we have embedded a video below which gives you a taster of the action you’re missing out on. Which other iOS-exclusive games and apps do you want to hit Android?
