After countless fakes, the real Temple Run is finally here. That's right - it is legit and available right on schedule, March 27th (looks like it happened Eastern time).


Even better news - it's free. Presumably, there are in-app purchases or ads, but we'll figure that out once we give it a go.

Update: No ads so far, but you can purchase coins for $0.99 or more (see the last screenshot below).

In the meantime, why don't you do that as well? I'll see you back here in a few hours. Or days. I won't judge.

Just remember to register for Google I/O in the morning, if you're thinking of going - don't forget, registration starts 7 a.m. Pacific time sharp.

    Ug barely works on my Inspire 4g on ICS
    All the buttons and gestures aren't where they should be.
    Like to hit the play button I have to touch to very top of my screen....

    So, was it worth the wait, guys?

    • jonathan

      I say it's worth the wait. I'm enjoying it right now without any of the bugs I've seen complained about so far.

        Lol, I was about to say that too. Just think, in 2 years every Windows Phone site is going to be going through this all over again.

      EDIT: it frequently crashes on pressing Run Again - I didn't ancounter random crashes, but they may occur.
      It's a very clean, quick crash, though, just pops me out to homescreen, no FC popup.

  • NCX

  • Tom

    Won't download on my ZTE Score smartphone. :( I've been waiting for this for months.

  • Darkseider

    Meh. Not bad but they definitely need to do something about the delay between swipe and action on screen. Happens on my G2X, Transformer and Transformer Prime so I know its' not just one device. Hopefully an update to address that.
