Temple Run landing on Windows Phone today


Temple Run
, the endless runner that got massively popular on iOS and Android, is finally arriving to Windows Phone. You might think “Ah, Microsoft is quickly catching up!,” but while it is true that Windows Phone is catching up with apps, this is not the latest Temple Run 2 - it is the 18-month old original. It also doesn’t use the Xbox Live platform.

And Temple Run is not the only high-profile game that arrives to the Windows Phone OS. Gravity Guy 2 is coming with Xbox Live support. 6th Planet, Propel Man, Orcs Must Survive, Ruzzle, Fling Theory, and Drift Mania are all among the newcomers.

What’s yet to come? We are still waiting for Jetpack Joyride for example. But good news is that Microsoft is slowly but surely filling in the gaps. Windows Phone 8 promised easy porting of games, but developers have been reluctant. Hopefully, not for long.

It may get TR 3, but if we go by this logic, TR4 will be avialable by then.

These games were long overdue in Windows Phone, but glad to see there arrival. Slow and steady wins the race. I can't wait to play Temple run and Ruzzle with my friends on different platforms!! Across the board Windows Phone has a progress a long way. Bring on WINDOWS BLUE for the full integration experience for Windows Phone , XboxNextGen,Windows 8!!

They should have just made Temple Run 2 for WP. Idk if they had enough time to get it out for WP8, but still.

Yeah, it's for sure a great addition to the store. I think WP8 now has much better apps than when I had a Windows Phone. I'll have to try the game out on my bfs Lumia 920

They are doing it... now that Unity3d has WP8 support a lot of games are being ported.

Nokia needs to start focusing on apps department.ios and android are successful due to their apps.Microsoft must launch a number of free apps and games if they want to make WP8 a successful platform.Even angry birds is a paid game in microsoft

Temple Run 1?! You kidding me?!!!! Temple Run 1 is very boring right now. Why not Temple Run 2?

Wp always make a obsolete apps

19. windroid unregistered

What a fantastic sentence, not only it's grammatically incorrect but also in terms of content. WP is an operating system, so it does not make applications. "a(singular) obsolete apps(plural)"

I could care a less about this game, but Microsoft should be exploiting it's xBox Live game base, and pulling in those entertainment titles. I suspect there will be a sharp increase in the number of games ported to WP8 during the next few months...

Temple Run Oz would be awesome for Windows Phone!!! Been playing the Android version and it's by far the best of the bunch yet :)

Once wp8 gets temple run 2, subway surfer, and instagram I'll consider switching to the platform

subway surfer LOL. That game blows compared to Temple Run, and its a bad example of a freemium game.

There isn't "one" big app coming to WP, there's a lot of big apps arriving.
