The smash hit game for the iOS platform, Temple Run, from Imangi Studios will soon be coming to the Android Market/Google Play very soon. In fact, fans of the game will be able to pick it up on March 27th. If you haven't heard of or seen the game, it is an Indiana Jones-style "runner" game and is one of the most successful games on the iOS platform. Fans have been clamoring to get it on Android for some time now. In fact, the game is currently the top free app and top grossing app in the iOS App Store, with over 40 million downloads and 7 million daily active users!
Originally, we thought the game would be coming to Android sometime in February, but it hit some delays. All we can say is... better late than never! Here is a press release below:

WASHINGTON, D.C. March 6, 2012 Imangi Studios today announced that Temple Run, the Top Grossing App and Top Free App in the App Store in January 2012, will be released for Android devices on March 27. Free to download, Temple Run challenges players to test their reflexes as they race down ancient temple walls and along sheer cliffs. With endless gameplay, players collect coins as they jump, slide and run to escape the evil monkeys guarding the temple while avoiding obstacles.
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.
The iOS version of Temple Run for iPhone and iPad boasts over 40 million downloads in the App Store since its debut in August 2011.
