Angry mixed feelings on Temple Run for Android

The Temple Run for Android saga has gone on and on and yesterday we were pleased to be able to tell our readers that the game was finally available. However, although we expected that many people would be delighted at the news, the response was quite different as it seems that many of you are having difficulties or your devices are not compatible, leading to major disappointment and a fair amount of anger.

If you were waiting for Temple Run to make it to Android after the iOS app had previously been such a smash hit, you’ll know that the game was delayed several times. At the time this caused a lot of frustration from Android gamers desperate to get their hands on it and many were taken in by fake Temple Run Android apps. Imangi Studios, the developers of Temple Run asked for patience and warned against the bogus apps and finally gave a release date of March 27 (yesterday). They stressed that the delays in getting the game to the Android platform were because they wanted to get it exactly right.

At the time this seemed to be fair enough and we pointed out that maybe it was better to wait to get the game spot on for its release without any glitches or problems. When we reminded readers yesterday that the app had been released (Google Play link here), we said that hopefully Imangi Studios had got it 100% right and asked readers to let us know if the game was running smoothly for them and if they were pleased that the long wait was over. Unfortunately it seems that we opened a whole kettle of worms as we had many comments from people who sounded pretty angry.

The app is free and requires devices to be running Android 2.1 or later as we pointed out yesterday. However it seems that many people who’ve been waiting for so long are finding out their devices are not compatible. We’ve had comments from owners of the HTC Wildfire and Legend, Samsung Admire and Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Q, T-Mobile Mytouch, Motorola Droid Razr Maxx, Droid Razr and other handsets, all saying they are getting messages that their device is not compatible and some of those people have understandably become frustrated and annoyed.

We had a few comments from Galaxy S2 owners saying they’d managed to download it although it was described as ‘glitchy’ and a Droid 3 user said they managed to download it but got kicked out of the game after a few attempts. The sense that people feel let down is very tangible and one user pointed out that they’d been waiting for a long time and Temple Run for Android wasn’t compatible for either their own device, or any of their friend’s devices. We know that there are probably many of you who are quite happy with Temple Run for Android and playing the game quite happily as we speak. However there seem to be an awful lot of people who are dissatisfied and very unhappy about the app they’ve waited for so patiently for so long.

We’d like to get an idea of how widespread these problems are. If you are having trouble getting Temple Run for your Android device, or have managed to download it but are having further problems, then let us know by sending your comments below this story. Do you feel disillusioned and let down by the Android version of Temple Run?

UPDATE – Please check out our article at this link for news that the Temple Run for Android game has now received an update to fix some of these problems and make more devices compatible.

    I’ve managed to download temple run onto the HTC Sensation, although not through the Android version of the app store, “Google Play”, but rather through the internet which was annoying.
     Secondly, when playing the game it is very glitchy, instead of running smoothly it sort of staggers whilst running. Another problem is jumping over the fire or stone barrier. Having played on the iPhone, I know the timing you can use to get over these barriers by jumping. On the HTC, the jump has to be performed well in advance, sometimes missing out on coins, or just disrupting your flow, and if you don’t jump well in time, you die.For all of Imangi Studios talk of getting the app just right for android, in my opinion they’ve failed.

    1. Daniel says:

      I also noticed lag on my HTC Sensation. I also noticed that the buttons in the store were not working good either. Vwhen you lose a game and it shows you your score, the store button, and get more coins button are cut off. Sometimes when I fall off the stone walkway, it says I hit a tree. Although the game is still playable, it is nowhere near as smooth as my iPad.

      1. Mikelawrence30 says:

        yeh ive noticed both the things you said after a bit more playing. you have to continually try and press the store buttons before they actually work. i have been playing it ok, but when the character starts running faster, the glitchy lag is extremely annoying. definitely nowhere near as smooth as on any iOS device i’ve played it on

    2. GreyHoundBlack_007 says:

      hey man! you don’t jump over the fire and stone barrier. That can never be done. And that is not how you play it. WHat you should do is slide under the fire and stone barrier!

  2. Joey says:

    I have the droid razr maxx and am completely disappointed I cannot play. Ive been looking forward to playinh Temple Run on a screen bigger than the iphone, but apparently my device is not compatible. Extremely disappointed and frustrated, as is my daughter.

  3. guestwho says:

    I’ve waited for this for so long only to find out that it’s not compatible to my phone which is a Samsung Galaxy y. Hope this could get fixed soon or should we wait for another year for this? If that’s the case then never mind.

  4. Nospam says:

    I have Samsung Exhibit and it does download. However, after playing a couple of rounds, it kicks me out and closes the app when I try to play again. Annoying, but at least it only happens between rounds (at least so far) and not in the middle of running.

  5. Joelowry3 says:

    My samsung galaxy mini has the 2.1 required for it but it says incompatible all the time.. so annoying waiting this long and this happens

  6. Joeycee says:

    I’ve got a Wildfire which is running version 2.2.1 and this is apparently not compatible. I’m quite dissapointed, and will have to continue stealing my husband’s iPhone to play. Umm, I wander if I can implicate Imangi Studios in a divorce case……. he’s getting really annoyed with me!

  7. Kayla says:

    I feel extremely let down. I played Temple Run for a while on my iPhone before it was stolen and when Igor my new phone and installed android, I waited anxiously for the Temple Run release which kept being moved back. When March 27th finally hit, I downloaded it with a smile on my face only to have that wiped away by the lagging and lack of responsive controls in the game. I would prefer to have a smile on my face from the company that helped me get through the past semester of college. I really hope they fix this soon for their true fans who have been waiting sooo long.

  9. Bevans says:

    stupid, waiting for ages for it to come out and then it isn’t compatible on my phone, htc wildfire s,which is running on android 2.3 

  10. Shan says:

    I am very dissapointed I have a lg optimus it says it wasnt compatible with my phone . I waited for so long for it to come out . I downloaded temple run from some website but idk if its the real one because it freezes and stuff . 🙁 :'( I wanted to play in school

  11. Cavkiduk says:

    Is the scoring system different to the iPhone? Because I have all the upgrades to the max and I am making 5k runs but still do not get a score even near the iPhone version the multipliers for the coins etc that come with the upgrades do not seem to take effect, other than that works fine on my desire HD

  12. Davidleahy22 says:

    I have a samsung galaxy ace and it wont download i was soo pissed off coz i waited soo long fo it to come out. My freind has a samsung galaxy y and it doesnt work on his phone either.

  13. Monacoevans says:

    hey i have the andriod ally version 2.2.2 and it want let me download please fix this problem i am very unhappy after waiting such a long time patiently please fix it

  14. Jess Wills33 says:

    I have the market version 2,2 but when I downloaded on my HTC Wildfire S I was told my device was not compatible with the game. I was very disappointed as I have been waiting for a ling time

  15. Maryluvsjohncena says:

    I honestly have to say, I almost cried when I saw that I couldn’t get temple run. I legit been counting down the days until it came out. And after all that, I end up with nothing. I can only play it on my sister’s phone since she has a samsung galaxy s. So, please please please imangi studios, can you make temple run available on the htc wildfire s, and of course all the other android devices that can’t get it, when they’ve been soooo patiently deserving of it.

  16. Nowaskimelanie says:

    My daughter plays all the time on her iphone and I couldn’t wait to get it on my Razr….then it tells me its not compatible!!! Why?????

  17. Danielpaulblain says:

    I have a galaxy ace and I have been waiting for the android release since the day it came out on ios. Now it seems it is incompatible with my phone even though I have 2.3.3 gingerbread. I hope that this problem is so widespread that Imangi Studios will fix it (and they better fix it soon).

    1. Yogesh says:

      have faith ..it is working on galaxy ace.. although a bit slow.. and not as smooth as on iphone… will do a bit of tweaking and try to perfect it

  18. Tamika says:

    I’d rather wait an additional amount of time just so my phone (lg optimus v which is android 2.2.2) along with other phones are compatible with this game. It is not fair to us android users that only a select few phones are able to have this game be downloaded.

  19. Dpdangelo says:

    There should be an update ASAP on the temple run app allowing it to be compatible with any Android phone because its not fair to those (Including myself) that waited so long to play it and are not able to…

  20. aiden says:

    i cant even FIND the app on the play store app never mind download it. (HTC Wildfire S) this is really annoying, iv been so excited about this game for so long. Imangi have been a massive let down!

  21. Benni_cordell says:

    I feel left out at lunch and during breakfast and also when our teachers let us have our phones out because the have iphones and i have a samsung gravity which is not “compatible” with my device and the are playing temple run and i can’t becuase i cant get the app 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 :(M :( 

  22. Tyler says:

    ive been waiting for a while for temple run and now its out and in running 2.3.3 and the minumum is 2.1 like what the hell the only person i know that can run it is my friend with the samsung galaxy nexus running on 4.0.1 so i dont know what the developpers did along with android but u messed it up and im very dissapointed with it and i have the lg optimus one and the only people i know that know no troubles with anything are apple users. so hurry the hell up and fix this BS

  23. Ecjollyrancher says:

    I have a samsung gravity smart and its not compatible which makes me really mad iv been looking forwed to the game forever I always feel left out when all my frineds come over nd start playing it

  24. alikla says:

    I have a samsung galaxy, I was able to download the app but it is very glitchy. Constantly jumping/skipping and making it harder to play/play accurately. Hopefully there are some update fixes soon!

  25. Toe says:

    Motorola Atrix 2 – Had to go to internet to get it, cannot find it in Google Play. While playing, works fine, but app completely closes after 2 or 3 “run again” presses. But, starts right back up and plays fine for 2 or 3 runs, then closes again. It does remember my power ups from each time it closes. Kinda sucky, but from the sound of it better than a lot of others. Will continue to play it as is and wait on upgrades.

  26. ben reece says:

    I Have A Galaxy Ace And I Feel Very Let Down By This App As It I s Not Compatible With My phone, I have Been Waiting A Few Months For This And Hope They Sort It Out Soon.

  27. TheOne says:

    Not compatible with the Droid Bionic, been waiting for so long and downloaded so many fake versions that I am passed angry to a point where I really don’t care for the game anymore.

  28. Lindyhyland97 says:

    i cant download it because Google play says it is not compatible but my entire SD card is cleared and im running. Android Version 2.2.1. on my LG Optimus V(5)

  29. Daneitraloveless says:

  32. Angelannihilate says:

    I have the Samsung Galaxy Precedent from straight talk, and my phone isn’t compatible. Been waiting a long time for nothing really. :/

  33. Bamxcore says:

    Game runs fine on my SGS2, although twice now it has frozen resulting in me having to reset the phone (pull battery out or turn it off and on) and when i have powered it back on all my progress was reset back to 0! they need to fix that, the game is pointless with that going on.

  34. Jeffeboy23 says:

    I have the samsung galaxy prevail and its saying its not compatible! I’m very upset! I’ve been waiting for so long and I was so excided for the game to come to droids market anndd now I can’t even download the game and its not even in the app store! Please fix this problem fast!

  37. Jessica says:


    Very dissapointed that temple run seems to be ‘uncompatible’ with my Samsung Galaxy Mini, I would love for this to be fixed as I do have Android on my phone.

    Kind regards, Jessica.

  38. Faith says:


    i am very angry for i have been waiting for the TEMPLE RUN app on my HTC wildfire s  2 days after the ” realising ” of temple run

  39. Carys says:

    I have a HTC wildfire s and its not compatible. I think its stupid that we weren’t told beforehand that it wouldn’t be compatible with certain devices. Also considering they spent so long “perfecting” the app, they didn’t do a very good job. They should have ensured that it would work on ALL devices and that it wasn’t glitchy. I would rather have waited another month to get it if it meant that :- a) I actually GOT the app and b) it was faultless!

  40. Mbarrelle says:

    On the DROIDX it works ok but you get kicked out after ever 2day runs and its just a really glitchy game y’all should really fix this or ill delete it and just play on my ipad!!

  41. Giovannigarzon1 says:

    It isnt compatible for my android lg optimas, I’ve been waiting for months for temple run to come out just to find out my phone isnt compatible. And I have the right version too… RAGE!

  42. Raeannetan18 says:

    I can’t download it on my HTC ChaCha!! Btw, my phone is using Android Market, not the Google Play..but it should STILL be able to download!! 😮 >:( 🙁 :'(

  43. Vicmic1011 says:

    I have a samsung admire, its a droid, I have 2.3 and im not compatible. I am so frustrated thzt I cant get it. I have been waiting months and now I cant get it

  44. britnee williams says:

    i am VERY upset that my phone isnt capatible. i have a samsung galaxy prevail and it will not let me download the app and alot of my friends arent able to get it either. i thought this game would be compatible for all android phones. i have been waiting for this game for so long only to find out i am not compatible and i am very upset about this

  45. Jasperbrucewright says:

    I had been waiting for months for Temple Run Android to come out, and when it did, my HTC Wildfire S wasn’t compatible with “this version” of the app, which gives me the impression that it might be made compatible, ( in a couple of years?!) but until that happens, I will continue to be extremely irritated!

  46. Shayhay29 says:

    IU have wait for so long for temple run to come to android and i cant downloadit it says its not compatible with my at&t vimicro tablet. this pisses me off.

  47. Siobhanhardt says:

    Really pissed that it wasn’t compatible on my Samsung Galaxy Ace, especially since I have been waiting since January, very disappointed.


    I have been waiting for soooo long and then when it comes out it is not compatible with my Samsung Galaxy Ace!!! I am very disappointed. I have been waiting for a long time! Please fix this and come out with an update or something to fix this problem. 🙁 PLEASE  

  49. Triple Entente says:

    I was able to download it on my nexus s but it kicks me out and the game lags. Also when I jump to collect the powerups, sometimes I go through them without getting them.

  51. Daghiaevans says:

    i am highly upset and sad :/ i have been checking in my market everyday since the first time I heard about temple run … && all that time I wasted and battery I wasted I find out it doesn’t work on my phone :/ please somebody fix that

  52. Disappointed:/ says:

    I’ve been waiting to get temple run on my htc chacha for ages and when I finally heard that it was coming out on android phones I was looking forward to finally get it on my phone. I tried to download the app on my phone with google play but to my disappointment it said my phone was not compatible. It would be really great if the app could be introduced to all android phones because I agree with the many people that are disappointed with this and the glitches the app has. Could you please fix these problems.

  53. rachel cochrane says:

    I’ve been able to.download temple run on my galaxy fit from another website as google play daid my device.wasn’t compatible with the game :/ its very very glitchy and kicks me out of the game randomly :/

  54. Ciarabowden11 says:

    I dont uderstand why google play is telling me my device is not compatible with the temple run app yet i have a 2.2.1 android version?o.O

  55. Tkway says:

    I am a user of the LG Optimus V, and I am very disappointed. My reason being is because at one point I was able to download temple run and it was at the time when I kept get the countdown screen. And now that its finally here I am unable to download it…….Wwhhhhyyyyy!!!!! I scream. I played this game for the first time on a friend’s Iphone and it was so I addictive that she had to practically pry her phone from my hands…..I hope to one day, hopefully. soon get to download this game on my LG, or must I go out and spend hundreds of dollars on the Iphone just to get Temple Run……..I beg of u please come up with a solutions for the numerous of Temple Run fans whom weren’t able to download this app. I’m in tears, so sad. 🙁

  56. N Mccrea123 says:

    complete and utter let down!!! been waiting for ages on this app to go and try to download it and find that its not compatible with my samsung galxay ace!!!! disgrace!!! :/ im very dissappointed in imangi studios! they should have catered for all the devices they offer…or at least not got the hopes up of the people who haves devices that arent compatible!!! :/

  57. Prettysmartgirl says:

    I Have A Gravity Smart And EVERY Time I Try To Download It It Says The Game Is Not Compatible With My Phone….And I Was Witing For Weeks For Temple Run To Come Out On Android.UGH !!

  58. Pishmans says:

    I have Virgin moble and it doesn’t show up I tried on my friends android and it was right there so Temple run now also has to be compatibly with Virgin Mobile and all other androids  

  59. Ucnedi says:

    I have the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S and it is so laggy. Sometimes the game moves slow, which makes me fall.The loading screen is too slow, when I fall and lose, when I click new game or play again “I forget what it really says” I go back to my home screen and I have to open Temple Run again. THEY NEED TO FIX THIS MESS ASAP. On the good part, I am patient with it so I still play it since the game is so awesome.

  60. Tippymitchell says:

    Temple run doesn’t work for my Samsung galaxy prevail and I’ve been waiting just as long or even longer than those who’s devices are compatible. I hope this problem gets cleared up soon.

  61. sammi says:

    Thank you so much for giving me a place to tell you what my platform is. I’m on an LG Optimus V Android and I was quite put off by not being able to install the game. Please bring to Optimus V! Thank you:)

  62. Shannon says:

    I am very disappointed. I have been waiting for this for months. All of my friends have it for their iPhones and I just wanted it for my LG Thrive. It meets the requirement of the 2.1 or later operating system.  I hope that they in the near future fix the game so I can download it.

  63. Ducktopia301 says:

    I was able to download and use this game without problems with my HTC Sensation. The only weird thing is the video resolution and graphic quality but the rest seems ok.

  64. Catsbaseball7 says:

    Trust me its better that you can’t download temple run from Android! It is a complete disappointment! The resolution is awful, its extremely laggy, and th one reaction time is horribly slow.. I have played temple run on my ipod and my friends iphones and there is no comparison in the two… I am very disappointed that it took them so long to release the game and its complete crap..

  65. Pokechapineram says:

    I have an Avail phone and it says that my phone is not compatible, even though it operates with the android version 2.3 i believe  

  66. I have a rooted htc droid incredible running aokp build 28 rom, the game’s compatible, so I downloaded. However, every time i swipe right or left, the guy jumps and to slide I have to pinch towards the middle of the screen. Let’s not forget that to select new game or some other button I literally have to start tapping with two fingers on the screen. This is messed up. 

  67. Abhishek71297 says:

    Ive got an HTC desire running honeyomb and
    Let me tell you it is extremely laggy and insensitive – slow reaction time compared
    To an iPhone..very dissapointed

  68. oscarlj21 says:

    I have the droid x I was successful to download temple run but having a lot of trouble with glitches not good.does anybody know if they’re trying to fix this problem..:(

  70. ???????????/ says:

    i know it sounds sad but i got a new phone with my bday money mainly because temple run would be better on it ,and now its not working 🙁

  71. Cheetospuff97 says:

    I have the lg optimus v and it says its not compatible… Im PISSED ive been waitin for temple run on android for soo long… please please fix that problem

  72. Elishiaroccks says:

    I have Samsung Galaxy mini and have waited what seems like a life time for it to come out only to look on google and find the horrible words “Your device is incompatible” …. My face dropped -_-

  73. Nad says:

    It is very choppy on the Samsung Charge. It will run for awhile but once it starts glitching it will always crash. Usually the crash happens right an obstacle and no matter what you do you hit the obstacle. Then it will take you to the play again screen, once there if you hit play again it will force close. Once it was so bad my phone was non-responsive for about 20 – 30 seconds. So in conclusion it is fun to play for second or two, but I could not see myself being entertained for very long. This is due to the fact that it will crash when you are trying for a high score. The game just moves too fast at that point and you will hit a game ending obstacle that you have no control over. I would be happy if the graphics were not as good but I could actually play the game.

  74. Laxgirl1515 says:

    I have been waiting for this game so le (ong, and I was really disappointed when it said my device (lg optimus slider) wasn’t compatible!!!!! What ever than means…..I just want it on my phone!!! >:l

  75. Laurenhotto says:

    Oh my god this is messed up. They said its be out for android on march 27 and they never said anything about some devices being compatible and others not being compatible. Please just hurry up and get it on ALL android phones!!! And stop letting ppl down!!!!! Including me. O___0

  76. Lovecolleenpeace says:

    I have an LG Enlighten phone and have patiently been waiting for this app on android. When I go to Google Play it says my phone is not compatible with this app. All the other apps are compatible and my device is recognized by Google Play. Any ideas? Anxious to run to the temple. My mom got the app on her Nook Tablet, rooted with CM7.

  77. Ginahaydenbest says:

    Yeh. im let down. i have the galaxy s2 and cant tilt to get the coins. its frustrating as i had made a note in my diary for the release date and now i have got it i cant enjoy it as much. will these problems be fixed? I flippin hope so. im so dissappointed.


  78. Pstey says:

    I have an HTC EVO and I find the game to be pretty unresponsive. When I try to switch direction it seems to react noticeably slower to the point where the game is too hard to play. If I play on an IPOD. the reaction time is extremely fast. 

  79. Tiana says:

    Yall should seriously make Temple Run compatible with all Android phones…. I can’t get it on my LG Enlighten for Verizon and it really upset me when it said that my device wasn’t compatible with this version. You all have made alot of people disappointed because of this and you should fix it as soon as possible! 🙂 it would be GREATLY appreciated.

  80. UNKNOWN says:

    the app doesnt work on my HTC Wildfire S >:( i waited SO long for it and now i cant get it it :”( please fix and make it compatible for my device

  81. Taylorgang3lol says:

    Temple run doesn’t appear in my Samsung galaxy prevail’s Google play store i don’t understand why it wouldn’t be capable on my device if my device has full touch screen and rotation

  82. Reecesproulelive says:

    Fix this please i waited so long for it and it does not work on my SAMSUNG GALAXY ACE no reason for it not to work now fix it and when will it be fixed?

  83. Armoza says:

    I’m using Galaxy S2 and it works greate. the problem is that it seems much harder than in iphone. I typically score 1.5-2M points in my iphone, and I cannot score more than 0.8M  in my galaxy. It seems a bit faster in  my GS2.

  84. Joanneemason says:

    Ive got a HTC wildfire s and have recently updated to version 2.3.5 and its still not working its not even on Google play when I search

  85. Vikjain says:

    Ive got a HTC wildfire s and have recently updated to version 2.3.5 and its still not working its not even on Google play when I searched it… When searched through other websites, it says not compatible… Pls make a version compatible with htc wildfire s……

  86. DAN201 says:

    Why cant u just make it compatible with galaxy ace! Galaxy ace has the same size of screen as the iphone 4s (3.5 inches) and I have gingerbread 2.3.4 so I dont see why it isnt compatible! Please make it compatible with all android phones that arent currently compatible! We are all still waiting you could have made them all compatible at the same time as the motorola phones! We’re still waiting!

  87. Rated_rko786 says:

  90. Lewis says:

    Works fine on my Sony Experia Arc S. Having no problems whilst playing such as bugs and glitches. However, my girlfriends phone (Samsung Galaxy Ace) seems to not even find it on the market/google play, which is frustrating. There must be a way to download it of the net onto the handset?

  91. nando says:

    it doesnt work fine for my mytouch 3G slide and i have been waiting for it so i can play it on my android but it says that this device isnt  compatible can u do something about it?

  92. Jay says:

    My lg optimus c doesn’t even have temple run in its market. and when I try to download it one the internet off my phones it isn’t compatible

  93. happy droid 1 user says:

    It’s so funny really, I installed this game first time ever on my OG Droid without any problems what so ever! And that’s old school tech man!

  94. Ponymadcaz says:

    I have a HTC Wildfire S and it says it is not compatible. I am very annoyed and disappointed because I have been looking forward to its release for a while. I can’t access it on the android market and it isnt compatible on the internet. Please sort it out!

  95. Cbaby1997 Cj says:

  100. @kevdelmindo says:

    i waited forever to play this game and i just fount out that it’s not compatible to my samsung galaxy y? HOW COME!?!? Please make it WORK in ALL ANDROID phone since it is ‘temple run for android’.

  101. Lbvaldez22 says:

    i already have temple run on my samsung galaxy y. there are 2 bugs, one for the tilt coins and the other is, if you reach 250m the character is automatically dead.. please fix this bugs.

  102. Janet O' Carroll says:

    Its not even in my google play market for SAMSUNG GALAXY MINI. I have to log onto my google play account on my laptop to send it to my phone and when it click download , then it says its not compatible! I’m really annoyed! 

  103. Mark Richardson says:

    you do all realise that the developer probably does see any of your comments so putting ‘u better fix this’ is just silly.  Do apple users project a childlike immaturity to there users i wonder.

  104. DKG says:

    Disappointed…. I am using Galaxy SL. I waited for the game counting every single day as it passed by. The day it released I tried to download and got the message that your device is not comptible.  Really did not expect this from Imangi.

  105. Marieperry44 says:

    This app is incompatible with your Samsung SCH-I100. I have the Samsung Gem Android version 2.2.2 when will it be compatible for this phone?!?

  106. guest says:

    why is it not compatible with my sony ericsson W8?? i’ve waited for 
    this app on android but i’m disappointed 
    that  i can’t download it!

  107. Nikki_knip says:

    It sucks how so many people have already bought Samsung Galaxy Y for it’s the new “in”. I have it as well but I’m fcking pissed that all the good games I want isn’t compatible!! PLEASE FIND A WAY ASAP. I actually even cried about this situation lolol. I just want it really bad :((

  108. Fraser Cunningham says:

    my phone says this app is not compatible with this device? i think that they should have made this compatible with all android devices

    1. Ryoma says:

      Maybe there is all these incompatibleness because android users were’nt patient enough for Imangi Studios to make it correctly and then put it on android.
      Well anyways, mine does’nt work either!!

  109. Akl 14 says:

    I have the samsung replenish and I have been looking for temple run for android since christmas and then I am sooooo EXCITED to get it and it says my device isntcapible of this product or something I am BEGGING you to please get it for my type of phone

  110. Vivian says:

    I have an LG Enlighten with Android version 2.3.4 and it’s “incompatible with my phone’s country” …which is the US.
    so irritated. i’ve waited so long to play this stupid game on my phone, and now that it’s available for Androids, it’s incompatible with my damn phone.

  111. Katrinalising05 says:

    i have samsung galaxy ace and i had the chance yo download it from my comp. and transfer it to my cellphone. But it really sucks! i cant play with it smoothly.

  112. Joeglauser5 says:

    I have the Droid incredible and temple run sucks on it! Whenever you start to fun fast it lags and when you get the speed boost it won’t then for you..also it will close when you get near your highscore

  113. JustinAllen says:

    Must Update for Samsung Exhibit 2 ! I managed to download it but the thing is it isnt running smoothly as i thought. its very glitchy. and I can barely make it to one million or more points like i do on the iphone or ipod. Someone fix it for my phone.

  114. Rizwana Jalil says:

    I think this is typical & should make sure it comes out on ALL Android phones at once including my HTC Wildfire S, I am very disappointed about this & do something quick about it.!:@

  115. Corrinehankin says:

    I have the LG PHEONIX and i have been waiting for Temple Run fkr months to come out for Andriod. BUT know i tried to download it and it said tbat is wasent compatible with ny device…..i am really ma
    D. Does anybody know when Andriod is gpibg to make Temple Run conpatuble with all Andriod Devices!?!?!!?!?!?

  116. Aidan says:

    Have got Samsung Galaxy Ace and have been waiting for Temple Run to come out on Android for ages. I am really not happy with the fact that my device is not compatible. A phone very similar to mine is compatible, even though my phone has higher specs. Please do something quick!

  117. Anonymous says:

    To all of these people who are angry about it, that’s what you normally get when you buy a budget phone. The specs aren’t up to par. The company also has to iron out bugs about screen size and resolution. I just saw someone complaining about it not being available on their HTC Cha Cha. HTC Cha Cha!?! That thing has the oddest screen orientation and size! 

  118. Juan_86312 says:

    Itz Not Compatibale With My Samung Galaxy Prevail . Please Help Me . Everyday I Try To Download It And It Keeps Sayinq Itz Not Compatibale . Help Pleasee !

  119. Dani says:

    It is compatible with my HTD Desire, but it doesn’t make it any less playable… it’s nearly impossible to run past 1500m, there is a very noticeable delay in the response time, and it’s even randomly unresponsive. I don’t see the purpose of porting such a great game if it’s not going to offer a smooth game experience… the way it currently is, I can’t make it past 80k-ish points, while in an iphone it starts getting hard after 500k. Android may offer good features, but it’s not game or interface performance at all, in my own experience.

  120. Tas says:

    why isn’t it compatible with my galaxy mini 2.2.1? The game requires 2.1 and up and mine us more than 2.1 but still i can’t download 🙁

  121. Patrick Glover says:

    i got a HTC Wildfire S and all of my other family members (older sister mum dad and step mom) so they either have it or have the opportunity to download it. When i tried to download it on to my phone it’s been saying that my phone is not compatible. I’m very upset as I was going to get an I Pod touch but got a phone instead i wait ages then heard of the release date and got very excited but sadly have been let down i hope  Imangi Studios rectify there mistake and re-release it later with everything fix.

  122. Parsmilky says:

    I have Droid 3 and I am able to download it and play kind off! It a sticky and feezes up and and cannot coutinuously play the game. I am disappointed in the game turn out! 

  123. Guest says:

    It’s impossible for a game manufacturer to make anything but the most basic game function on all phones, especially across such a broad platform as Android. The HTC Wildfire S is a relatively low-spec phone and would never be able to run Temple Run without some serious compromises on video – I had an HTC Wildfire (not S) and it hardly ran Angry Birds! There are a lot of people waiting for the supported phone list to be expanded, but if you’ve got an old or budget handset then sadly it’s likely not to happen; and it’s not really fair to blame the developers; having to support every handset would stop them from making fast, advanced games like Temple Run.

  124. Monopoliser says:

    Works awesome on my Samsung Galaxy S2 (ICS MIUI – Cutom Rom) and with only minor glitches on my Samsung Galaxy S (ICS MIUI – Cutom Rom). Both phones have custom kernels and overclocking enabled.

  125. Emperor_moh says:

    Please make compatible for Galaxy ace somehow as i am gutted.
    Was waiting for it to come out on android and is not compatible on My Galaxy Ace so please sort this problem out

  126. Wilson118 says:

    The Temple Run app works for my Droid X2 but yet this game seems harder than the Temple Run for my iPod. I hope this problem can be fixed or is it just a harder “supposed to be better” game?

  127. Infernowacker says:

    I’m waiting for the game to be compatible for HTC Wildfire S ,the reason why the game doesnt show in the market is cuz its not compatible :/

  128. Steve says:

    @ dynadom

    Same here. I have Desire (Bravo) and the best of my 300+ attempts amounted to about 300k with 850 coins, so i grab a coworkers iphone with Temple Run and Bam! 1.4mil with 1.9k coins  and it wasn’t even a great run

  129. Mrmctrollin says:

    With Us-Cellular’s 4g LTE smart phone, the Galaxy S Aviator, there are countless glitches among which, and by far the most annoying are lag spikes. Also I had the same multiplier coins and distance (give or take 50) as my friend, who got 2.5 million points, compared to my 1.8 million. They definitely need to improve Temple Run for Androids, overall not impressed. 

  130. Greeneyesmaria81 says:

    It seriously is frustrating having it available on Android phones but not compatible with my HTC Wildfire. What’s the use of having it on Android phones if plenty of people cant use this app? Please fix!

  131. Jake118972012 says:

    Well, isn’t there a patch for your ‘Non Compatible’ phones? Check the patch on the market “Temple Run Patch”. Also try downloading adobe shock player on your mobile.

  132. Big Tex says:

    Temple run will not run on Samsung Galaxy Ace even though it’s software ia Android 2.3.3
    Some forums state you need a larger processor, Galaxy Ace has 800mhz, supposedly it needs at least 1 Ghz processor power????
    There seem to be more and more Samsung Galaxy owners complaining.

    1. Ian Troy Alvaran says:

      It’s not because of the larger screen. I’ve sent an unmodified apk to a small Sony Xperia (forgot the specific model but it’s the one with the sliding keyboard) and it runs the game without problems. The reason why Temple run can’t run on our Galaxy Ace is because our processor’s instruction set is inferior to most current devices. The Galaxy Ace’s instruction set is ARMv6 while Temple run will only work on devices that have ARMv7 and up. The most reliable way of determining your phone’s capability to run Temple run or any other advanced games is to check if it is Adobe Flash Player capable since it cannot be installed on devices that are on ARMv6 or lower.

      From what I know, I see that this isn’t fair since Temple Run for iOS is compatible with the first iPhone and its processor is based on the ARM11 architecture with ARMv6 instruction set, which is pretty much similar to our Galaxy Ace. Maybe Imangi Studios hates budget smartphones so we’re pretty much screwed.

  133. Thaar1 says:

    I downloaded it on other site than google play and than it doesnt work good you go from 31000 to 256000 and than your dead and in the google play store i even cant download it

  134. junaid says:

    i cant fakkin search it on my phone but wen i go on the computer it cums up but is says the same fukkin thing its not compatibale for your device

  135. Danny says:

    I had temple run for the HTC Desire S and everything worked fine, but after upgrading to the HTC Sensation XE, I can no longer buy upgrades.

    I have tried reinstalling etc. but no luck so far, weird huh?

  136. Danshadows4 says:

    Why is it not available on galaxy ace? All my mates can play it so i’m fuming that i cant. Is it going to be available on all android phones anytime soon?

  137. Adam C. says:

    Not Compatible with the LG Enlighten, It gets extremely agitating when I’m on the bus and all of my friends are playing it and I can easily beat their scores.

  138. lily says:

    Got a Galaxy Tab 8.9. Says its installed, starts on the front screen but within seconds it stops and says it needs to be forced closed, not working at all. Having uninstalled and tried several times, no hope!

  139. Casey says:

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Prevail and I was so excited to hear about it being available for Android.  My friend had it on his Android and told me to look in the Play Store for it.  But when I looked, I couldn’t find it.  I got online and tried to download it that way, and it said it was incompatible. D:

    Please hurry with the update!

  140. Taevier says:

    I have a android enlighten and it says that its not compatible with my phone I’ve been waiting so patiently please fix this problem

  141. Dayeli0611 says:

    I feel really angry cause my friend got temple run on her phone and sent me the link but it said its not compatable and we have the same droid so I reseted my phone and everything deleted and now I still cant see it and all my contact with all my information so please let me install that game thanks

  142. Ihpojgujvfivf 67 says:

    Absolutely furious. I have waited months for thiss app and now my friends refuse to let me go on theirs. Plz put it available for Samsung Galaxy Ace. Ta

  143. Kiki says:

    Like many others, I’ve been waiting a long time for this app to come out, just to find that it isn’t compatible with my phone 🙁 . Now I am forced to wait until I see my friends to play on their iPods.

  144. Pookiebear111797 says:

    I have waited a very long time to find out my samsung gracity smart is not compatible with temple un! Please fix this emediatly…thank you

  145. Monika Koprivc says:

    I have Samsung Galaxy Ace and I think it’s unfair that some of the Android devices enjoy playing Temple Run, and others don’t. Mine device is saying that isn’t compatible. I’m really angry because I was waiting for that game for months and I would really like to have Temple Run. Please fix this or send me a comment to monika.koprivc@gmail.com when you will fix that. Please hurry. Thanks.

    1. Matt_111 says:

      I downloaded the apk file but it was extremely glitchy, and after rooting and overclocking it is possible to play smoothly but still a lot of latency and lots of gliches

  146. Oreo_023 says:

    I have been waiting for so long to get this great game when I was stopped by being told that my phone wasn’t compatible, I have a htc Wildfire S and I was very disappointed to find out that my recently new phone couldn’t have my favourite game. 🙁

  152. Asadahashleey12 says:

    I seem to be experiencing many glitches on temple run as things happen even when i am not touching the screen during play or it will lag or not perform any actions

    1. Zsaszob says:

      You get what you pay for on Boost. The Prevail is a mid-range Android device at best. You’re out of your mind thinking it should run apps flawlessly. There’s a reason you only paid $200 for it with no contract with a shitty service provider.

  162. Sweeteypie70 says:

    I have HTC Wildfire S with an android 2.1 when i try to install it.. it say not compatible with this device.. i really want temple run game on my phone ..please do something 🙁

  165. guest says:

    Samsung Epic 4G

    Downloaded successfully, but game is glitchy. After I reach about 3000 metres, game begins to lag causing me to die. Phone then freezes before the life summary and the screen turns off and I can’t turn it back on. The only way I could get my phone to respond was by plugging in the charger.

  166. TheOneTheyFake says:

    Sprint Motorola MB612 (XPRT)

    Tried downloading Temple Run multiple times plus i have deleted all of my other apps but it is still lagging and slow

  167. Zsaszo says:

    To most everyone bitching about it not working:

    You bought a cheap prepaid Android phone. This isn’t going to work on a Wildfire S or the Prevail (Boost or Straight Talk). What are you guys thinking – you pay under $200 for your no contract phone and expect it to do everything that a Galaxy S II or iPhone 4S does? Seriously people; you get what you pay for.

    1. alvino says:

      well excuse everyone else for not being able to afford your “ultra spectacular iPhone.”  Not everyone can afford that so I don’t see why you have to single them out because they wont pay as much.

    lg optimus slider… i get it to run (technically) but it wont actually let me take any turns though i can jump.  im pretty sure its due to extreme lag as even jumping is weird.  idk.  pretty dissapointed.  i saw this on my cousins ipad and downloaded it but its a fail… hopefully they fix it.

    We can not download temple run to our emerson (poaroid) tablet since apparently we can not get goodgle play on the tablet and it is the only was to download the game. Get jar and the rest just give errors with the downloads.
