I have been waiting for Temple Run to arrive on Android devices.  I have imagined playing this game on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus but up until today, it seemed impossible to mention Temple Run and Android in the same sentence.  I have played Temple Run on the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 and I found it very engaging and very addictive.  But since my main phone is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, I was among the throngs of fans eagerly awaiting the arrival of Temple Run on Android.

Imangi, maker of Temple Run, initially promised an earlier Temple Run launch for Android but that has been moved to today, March 27.  True to its promise, the game is now available for download on the Google Play Store (previously the Android Market).  If you’re on Android, head over to Google Play and download the game.

Temple Run is a very exciting game that requires users to jump over obstacles, duck under trees and bars, turn on corners while trying to get powers and bonus points.  It’s fun and it’s definitely entertaining.  Temple Run is a free game but there are in-app purchases for more characters and more special powers.

I have downloaded Temple Run on my Galaxy Nexus and I’m am currently playing the game.  It’s the same game on the iOS, which should be a good thing really.  Graphics is good and gameplay is still the same.  Take it for a spin and tell me what you think about the game.  Here are a few screen shots of Temple Run on my Galaxy Nexus.

    I wonder why everyone is behind this game even I too have tried playing it for once. The graphics that they have maintained all through the game is really awesome but we can experience such effects in most of the other games too.

      looks like it’s not compatible with all Android devices. could be the hardware requirements or something

    • It’s becase Temple Run doesnt support ARmV6.(It runs on an ARmV7) It
      would be too slow to run it. Lets just wait for someone to port the

  36. Finally!!! Been waiting for this android version for ages……
