If you're into things that are fun and in your pocket (or the Republican primaries), then you already know all about Temple Run. However, only a select group of fun-lovers really know about Imangi Studios' acclaimed free-to-play game: iPhone and iPad fans. Luckily for Android advocates, that will change for the better come March 27, when Temple Run hits the Android Market for free.

Temple Run sees players fleeing frantically from a horde of irate monkeys across the most labyrinthine bridge ever built, turning, jumping and sliding in an endless escape attempt. Hot off the heels of topping the App Store's grossing and free app charts in January, we're willing to bet that Imangi Studios' flagship iOS game will see similar success on Android phones.

"We are excited to finally share the Android release date with our fans who have been so enthusiastic and supportive of Temple Run," Imangi Studios co-founder Keith Shepherd said in a release. "By expanding to more mobile devices, we hope to provide the same addictive and fast-paced gameplay to an entirely new group of players."

The iOS version of Temple Run boasts over 40 million downloads since it landed on the App Store in August 2011, despite some dastardly clones. With numbers like that, we predict that the endless runner on Android will sit right up there with Angry Birds for months to come.
