For those of you complaining that the game is slow and buggy: let me remind you that this is the first release by its developers, who have been releasing games exclusively for iOS for several months. Give them a few weeks, and I am sure they will iron out all the bugs in the Android version.
About Temple Run game
Temple Run is a running game, originally exclusive to Apple iOS devices. It was released as a 99c game, and later made free (supported by in-game purchases). It became hugely popular and topped the iOS App Store free apps list. It is developed by a tiny studio, consisting of husband-wife team Keith Shepherd and Natalia Luckyanova (programmers) and game designer Kiril Tchangov.
The game sees you play explorers who steal a precious idol from an ancient temple. The game revolves around escaping the troubles that befall the explorers when they try to steal the temple treasures. Various obstacles are encountered, and some demonic monkeys chase the player. Game play involves avoiding obstacles by jumping, ducking or turning. While running, players can get various powerups, coins, bonuses and unlocks to enhance their gameplay. Players can also buy these powerups and bonuses in the game store, which is how the game developers make money.
Scoring is based on distance survived and coins collected.
Temple Run was originally announced for a February 2012 release, but got pushed to a March 27 date.
