Temple Run now available for download to Android users

The highly-anticipated “endless run” game being played in the iOS has finally landed in the Android Market, or should we say in Google Play.


Temple Run from Imangi Studios is a game where the object of the game is to run, get coins, run some more, avoid obstacles, run some more, away from the black alien monkeys chasing you. So why is it a hit among iOS users? Well it’s a nice pick and play game and trying to best your farthest distance and rubbing your high score to friends over Facebook is motivation enough.

And now Android users can join in the fun as well. What’s missing here is something like iOS’ GameCenter which also acts as a leaderboard for the game.

Anybody tried it already? How was the experience? I tried the game on my HTC Sensation and I find the tilt to change lane smoother than in iOS although I often end up losing because of frame stuttering on my phone.

    Works great on my xperia mini pro. Though it feels different on a 3″ screen compared to my sister’s iPad

      Also, I’m sometimes getting unresponsiveness but I think that’s because the game just got on android.

  • True! BTW, I heard that the Galaxy Y which also has a 3″ screen but a 240×320 resolution cannot run the game. Yay to Xperia mini pro and its 320×480 reso!

    • Yeah it does not work on Galaxy Y. My little brother is so upset when I told him the bad news. 😀

  • Thea

    It’s not compatible with Samsung Galaxy Ace. 🙁

    • oh really? hmmm so resolution is not the only factor since it can run on the xperia mini pro.

  • simplynice93

    It runs smoothly on Xperia Neo although I haven’t played the higher levels but let’s see..

    i dunno if its just me, but i think the game is a little bit faster on android compare to ios? im having a hard time playing it on my phone compared to my friends ipod.

    • aze

      what i mean is the runner, runs faster =))

    • yeah same here… parang mabilis syang bumilis. can’t get my usual scores in the ipod.

  • john

    Not compatible on LG Optimus One.

  • HTC Vector S

    Works in HTC Desire S… smooth tilt response… that takes a while to respond in iOS.. that is why you tilt it so hard together with your head… i don’t know if it is too fast… but when I jump over fire, in iOS i can jump over it… but in android i got burned… i dont know if it that is an example of being too fast…

  • StratoSpHere

    Not compatible on LG Optimus One, but someone ported it on the device, and it is laggy as hell. Sucks. 😀

    works on my HTC Desire. nung umpisa medyo mabagal pero pwede palang ma-adjust yung responsiveness nya. now working smooth pero pansin ko sobrang bilis lalo na pag umabot ka na sa 30K+.

    • pansin mo ba na wala yung mga powerups sa game? kelangan talagang bilhin?

  • Kakainis lang no? daming Android users ang naghintay sa game na to tapos marami din pala ang hindi supported. Sana magawan ito ng paraan ng Imangi people.
