Update as of March 7, 2012:

Great news! Imangi Studios - via its PR agency Triplepoint - has just released an official statement that Temple Run will be released for Android devices on March 27th as a FREE Application! Let your friends know!

Quoting Washington D.C. based Imangi Studios, LLC - maker of Temple Run,

Quick update on Temple Run for Android, because we are getting lots of questions. We are working as hard as we can, but we still don't have an exact release date yet. It's our first release on Android and we want to make sure we get everything right. [source]

For the rather uncool ones who aren't even familiar with the game, Temple Run centers around Guy Dangerous and other explorers who entered an ancient temple to steal an idol not knowing that the place is filled with man-eating demonic monkeys that will pursue them, thus starting the "run."

There is no finish line; the object of the game is to run as far as possible by avoiding obstacles that require the player to either jump (slide finger forward), duck (slide finger backwards), or turn (slide finger to the right or left) in a precise manner. While all of this is happening, the player will be pursued by the "demonic monkeys". While playing, the player is required to tilt their device either to the left or the right to collect coins. These coins are primarily in the shape of a yellow diamond but according to their point value, they can also be a red diamond or a blue diamond, which is interpreted as a 2-point coin or a 3-point coin, respectively.

Aside from disclosing their plan to release an Android version of Temple Run soon, Imangi also warned Android users of "scam apps" in Android Market using the name of their famous game,

[...] [A]nything on Android claiming to be Temple Run is a SCAM. When the real Temple Run is out, you guys will be the first to know!

Do you also play Temple Run, TP Friends? What's the highest score you got?
