Looks about the same, just different environments, not particularly great.

Never liked the tilting either.

It is. Well, freemium.

Also, the Android version uses Unity while the iOS version doesn't. Isn't a husband and wife team? Guess they can only work on one at a time.

If you care about mobile games, you buy an iPhone. This is hardly new information. Until developers can make as much money with Android as they can with ios, the Play Store will continue to play second fiddle to the App Store. Since that's not going to happen any time soon, you should probably take that into account when you purchase your next tablet/phone.

Anyway..

Looks fun. I'll grab it for my ipad tomorrow. I only played the original a few times but it was pretty decent.

See I don't really care that much about them but they are nice to have around when you are sitting on a bus or train but for me that's about it.

2010 called and want his comment back. Thinks been changing at a fast rate, many big releases are multiplattform and the Android versions follow soon after the iOS version.

ios is still tons better than the Play Store, though. It's getting better, but they're nowhere near equal yet. I knew that when I bought my Nexus 4. I have no problem with it. It's just annoying to read posts like 'Android or gtfo' when it's been known for a long time that Android is an inferior gaming platform than ios.

Back in 2010 when i got my iPhone 4 i would gladly agree - if you care about Gaming you had to get an iOS device. But now ? Not really Rayman Jungle Run, GTA. NFS Most Wanted, Modern Combat 4, Virtua Tennis, Final Fantasy III, Sword and Sorcery etc. there is more than enough on Android and it isnt stopping anytime soon.

So yes, iOS is better for gaming but times where you needed an iOS device to get great mobile game are long gone.

The fuck? Jailbreaking or rooting your phone is the same. Why did you have to bring up such a stupid argument?

Yes, I know.

But still - if you care about playing ios exclusives or playing mobile games as soon as they come out, you have to buy an ios device. If you buy an Android device, you know you won't be treated as well as an ios device owner. It's still one of the main downsides of the platform, even if the disparity isn't as huge as it once was.

Temple Run 2 will eventually hit Android. Everyone knows that. God knows when, though. It could be out next week or it could be out next year, for all we know.

If you care about playing mobile games as soon as they hit, you have to buy an ios device. It's that simple. The fact that Temple Run 2 is out for ios tomorrow but is 'TBA' for Android is proof of that.

You need to root your phone now to run unsigned apps? Did that change recently? Haven't really paid attention to android for a few years.

but if this isn't a valid argument, what is a valid argument for android over iOS in terms of games?

you don't need to root, plus on many devices, rooting is just a whole lot easier. especially the most popular Android devices, Samsung phones. bootloader isn't even protected, well, except Verizon versions, haha...
