At long last, Temple Run jumps onto Android

The mega-popular iOS game Temple Run has finally made its way onto the Android platform.

With more than 45 million downloads from the iTunes App Store, Temple Run is easily one of the most popular running/escape-style games available on iOS. Now, after several months of pining by rabid fans, Android gamers get to share in all the addictive fun.

Different from most other perpetual running games, Temple Run offers a 3D, over-the-shoulder point of view. This unique game style feels a lot more intense, which to me, makes the game a lot more addictive than typical side-scrolling runners. As an Indiana Jones-type character, your job is to run and navigate your way through levels, while taking care to jump over and slide under obstacles. Oh and of course, there are also evil monkeys hot on your tail, just because.

Temple Run (download) is available now for free download from the Google Play store.
