Newsbrief: The Android version of Imangi Studios' popular free-to-play smartphone game Temple Run has been downloaded more than 10 million times since it launched just over three weeks ago.

The game launched as a paid download with in-app purchases for iOS devices last year -- however, it was when the studio removed the price tag and made it free-to-play that it really took off, with revenue from the game quadrupling and over 36 million downloads on iOS.

Imangi founder Keith Shepherd said today via Twitter than the Android version has also found success, with 10 million downloads already recorded.

This game is actually pretty sweet, so there is nothing to wonder about. Unlike some people who complain about low number of downloads, whose games are maybe just bad.

BTW. The only reason I have tried it, was because I read an article about it here.
