Temple Run for Android patience wearing thin

Under: Android OS Apps, Apps
By:Debbie Turner | February 29th, 2012

If you’re a fan of Temple Run and are one of the many people waiting eagerly for the Android version you may be becoming increasingly frustrated as the expected February release has not appeared. The Temple Run release saga just seems to run and run, although the game is in beta testing and so should be close to arrival on the Android platform.

Recently some avid waiters of this game were duped by a fake app that instead of enabling people to play the game, placed shortcuts on their home screens and installed a countdown. Further to this the Temple Run developers have warned that this was a scam but it seems that many disappointed people were caught out. Plenty of people waiting for Temple Run on Android are now becoming increasingly outspoken about the wait and the developers have now made a statement on the Temple Run Facebook page, imploring people to remain patient.

The gist of the statement acknowledges just how many people are waiting and how they had hoped the game would be available in February but was taking longer. It mentions the beta testing and says that a release date is anticipated soon but they (understandably) want to make sure it’s completely right before a launch. The statement goes on to say that a further message will appear on the Facebook page (here) when it’s due to arrive and that at least one week’s notice will be given. It also warns about the scam apps and urges gamers not to download these Apps. It concludes with the words, “You will be the first to know the real release date. Thanks for your patience and we’re excited to get things finished up soon!”

It seems then that Temple Run for Android will be with us soon although we know that many of you will say you’ve heard this before. We have heard of a plus point though as according to InEntertainment the Temple Run Android version will feature voice control. With regards to the further delays in the game though, we reckon that at least the developers are trying to keep people informed and that it does make sense to make sure the game is 100% ready to go before releasing it. However we can also understand the impatience this situation is causing, as is evident from the many comments on the Temple Run Facebook page.

We’d like to get an idea of the general consensus of opinion about the delays to Temple Run on Android? How to you feel about the waiting game and is your patience wearing thin now? We’re really interested to hear from our readers on this so let us have all your comments.

    PEOPLE ARE ALREADY ENJOYING THE GAME FOR THE PAST WEEKS/MONTH AND US ANDROID USERS HAVEN’T EVEN PLAYED IT YET. ITS SO ANNOYING THAT WE HAVE TO WAIT WHILE OTHERS GET TO PLAY IT JUST CAUSE THEY GOT THE IPHONE/POD TOUCH. NEXT TIME U GUYS MAKE A GAME, MAKE IT SO THERE ARE TWO VERSIONS FOR THE GAME. ONE FOR APPLE USERS AND ONE FOR ANDROID USERS. AND RELEASE BOTH OF THEM OUT NOT JUST APPLE VERSION OR ANDROID VERSION.

    With all the technology we have today you would think they would stop feeding thier fat faces and get on with it. They should have been in following apple from the start and released it at the same time.Smart cookies NOT.

      me to

  • Katherinmore

    Tired of waiting for this bullcrap what’s so special about iphones that you couldn’t make it for android the same time!!!!

    • Magicalplaydoh

      if you want to make an app for android you have to make the app compatible for all the phones (which there are a lot) and for apple there is only like 3 devices to think about so shut ur mouth if u dont know what ur talking about

      • Rmcghay

        It’s not that big of a deal… if you have something rude to say, there’s really no reason to say it. You’re never actually going to meet this person, so you just come across as a jerk. And, by the way, you should try being grammatically correct. “Ur” is not a word.

      • john smith

        Dude your a dumbass. I’ve developed for adroid before. All you have to do is specify a firmware (2.2,2.3 etc) requirement then any fone that had that firmware supports it. Dont talk if you dont know what your talking about.

  • Guest

    Please let me know as soon as you find out the release date!

  • Dmanstarr

    IM REALLY START TO HATE ANDROID AND I THINK I  MIGHT GO IPHONE INSTEAD! SICK OF THIS BULLCRAP AND DELAYS WHEN DO WE DO GET THE GAME

    • Dan571703

      so you would leave android because of a game??? #SOSAD

        game that lame android have gangstar miami vindiction,splinter cell hd,spider man hd,assassins creed,crazy snowboard,resident evil 4 ,gta 3 and more? this ppl flipping over 2d gameS? smh

    • Skabbo

       You’re missing a key point..  The Android OS has nothing to do with the game taking this long.  That responsibility lies with the app developers.  Your caps-shouting about spending hundreds of dollars to switch platforms over a free game really makes you sound spoiled and entitled, just in case you have any concern for how you come across.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001045389560 Adam Montas

        it not really expenses they use this technology call gamesalad.

    • Drifter

      As others said, it’s not android’s fault.It is because of developers.actually think why they dont want to release it?! They’re not releasing maybe there is.a big bug .Like they said it s UNDER testing! if you’re an impatirnt person,fuck off,your mistake was buying android.get an ios device.that hasn’t got customization!

  • Starsuzkahinamori

    They shouldn’t say that it’s going to be released February, which they did do, if it wasn’t coming out in February. It just makes us hopeful and drags it down, so many people who were anticipating the game just don’t care anymore.

  • Shaquita Baxter

    this is pissing me off !!! this needs too hurry up and come out on androis phones . 

  • Ineedmesometiff

    It’s not andriod. It’s the people making the game.

  • ponyo

    Its a free game, I want to play it too but the people here act so entitled. Its crazy, do you know how much work goes into creating an app? No, so just wait patiently

  • Ranger5389

    blah blah blah….You can say as much as you want that people are becoming disinterested, but when they game finally comes out they will without a doubt download it.

  • Jacobek95

    we are getting very annoyed and our patience is gone

  • phil98

    Search Running Fred its almost as good

  • Jessica411998

    I give up, id rather go buy an ipod touch, because once it ACTUALLY comes out( haha probably summer 2013) the whole temple run craze will be over, and this waiting and frustration will have been useless…

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001045389560 Adam Montas

      please be patient android will get it before march ends. for real get over it.

      • Mariam

        We canttt”!!!!!its temple run!!!!!

        • guy

          Adam: Another month for a game they said they’d release in January? Yeah, they’ve no grounds to talk.

  • Patrick Ding

    i feel like the developers owe android users some free coins…

    i’m a bit ticked. why is the standard for an app’s success defined by the iSheep?

    • Joe Schmoe

      i really want the game to come out too. but theres no need to insult ios users. if they’re isheep, then we’re nothing more than android sheep

  • drake

    When the game comes out the developers should at least give some free coins or give some of the equipment or cloths for free at least for a week or a month

    • Khyree47

      I like that thought, lol

  • Vanshp_1234

    Is the game really voice controlled as said above?

  • Huntkenzie 426

    they need to herry up and get that freaken thing out already come on

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001045389560 Adam Montas

    this game suck android have to many good games for idiots to get mad over

    • NONONONO

      it really wasn’t that addicting until i got competitive. 

  • Nonono

    About to switch from my android to an iphone just for this game. Look what u guys did, i have to betray android! 

  • Jackiewiggins13

    I was excited. For it to come out and now it’s not out. Like wtf. Should have Horton an iPhone

  • NateBoone

    You guys need to make a second temple run just for android due to all the delays!

  • Walesrulez

    Originally when I’d heard about mid-late January I was excited but disgusted with how people were saying that’s it dumb to still be testing it. Now I’m still eager but not nearly as much & I’m rather upset at how long its taking. However I still appreciate all the work they’re doing, and are making sure its 100% could u just hurry it up tad please & thank you

  • Khyree47

    Did it take this long to install it in the app store ?

  • katzoo<3 templerun6

    Yes, okay people, it’s taking a long time. I’m still getting quiet techy about how long its taking but let the people do their work – whether it gets released in 10 days-August it will still come eventully. I cant believe people are impatient enough to switch to a phone which costs much more just for this one game, and saying Andriod suck. Andriod don;t suck, they are trying hard. It’s not like Temple Run is the only game on Android? If your getting that angry to switch to an iPhone just for this, there is pletnly other addicting and fun games to be playing on Andriod while you wait. Appreciate the work they are doing – it is obviosly hard for them if it is talking a long time.
    They are testing it to make sure its 100%. Two options:
    1. To wait a bit longer and eventually get Temple Run which is just as good as by Apple and have the addicting game you have waitied for.
    2. To have the game next week but it to be glitchy and only ten tries out of it.
    Be patient. It is ridiculous how some people are acting – not all – some.
