Hey all you Android users out there, here’s some good news! The popular iOS game “Temple Run” is going to be making its debut on your platform very soon!

If you haven’t heard of Temple Run before, it’s the third highest ranking free game on the App Store right now. In a nut shell, the premise is quite simple (although, getting high scores isn’t). The game is a simple platforming game in which you control a runner through different obstacles, as you make your way through a temple while being chased by monkeys. Allow me to repeat: Yes, it’s a dude running through a temple being chased by angry little monkeys. Sounds fun right?

The game gives gamers the ability to jump and slide, as well as a few other features including specific power-ups to help you run. The part that makes Temple Run really awesome though, is that time is your enemy for mastery. As time goes on, the monkeys get faster, and the obstacles more challenging and frequent. It’s a very fun game, and Android users should be looking forward to this, if you enjoy addicting mobile games that are simple in concept, and difficult to be good at.

The game is set to be released on Thursday, February 9th, and will likely be available for free as well.  Temple Run used to cost 99¢ when it came out for the iPhone, but recently turned into a “freemium” game which allows users to unlock features with in-app purchases. This is a very smart business model for app developers, in the struggle to combat application piracy (you can’t crack things that aren’t there when you download it. In-app purchases help developers get what they deserve).

 

Below is the description from the game currently in the App Store. You can pick it up (FREE) in the App Store for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad HERE if you’d like.

“In pretty much every treasure hunting adventure movie there’s one specific scene in which the plucky hero finally gets his hands on the treasure but then has to navigate a maze of booby traps in order to get out alive. Temple Run is this scene and nothing else. And it’s amazing.” – SlideToPlay.com

From the makers of the award-winning best-seller Harbor Master® comes the most exhilarating running game on the App Store. Test your reflexes as you race down ancient temple walls and along sheer cliffs. Swipe to turn, jump and slide to avoid obstacles, collect coins and buy power ups, and see how far you can run!
