If you have missed out on running away from shady demons on your Windows Phone 8 devices, then you have a reason to smile on now. Temple Run is official now for devices running Windows Phone 8 OS. Temple Run has been one of the most popular game across Android and iOS in the last couple of years. The game has been so popular that the developers decided to launch a follow up sequel game called Temple Run 2.
However, for Windows Phone 8 enthusiasts, only the original Temple Run has been made available so far. other popular games such as Gravity Guy, Ruzzle and Drift Mania. However, the current build of Temple Run does not use the Xbox integration built in the device and also you will have to wait a little longer before Temple Run 2 is available as Windows Phone 8 plays catch up yet again.
The game works well on the Lumia 920 we tested it on with no jumping of frames, we are not entirely sure how good the performance would be on some of the lower end devices as Temple Run can be pretty intense on the CPU and GPU of your device. The sad news is that though, that the game is not available for those who are running Windows Phone 7/7.5 or 7.8.
This may not be all, as Microsoft has promised some of the other big named games such as Jetpack Joyride on Windows Phone 8 too. So watch out this space as and when more news develops. We do hope that some of these games would also have new challenges for it’s users on Windows Phone 8.
