It has been almost a couple of years since "Temple Run" was launched on Apple and Android platforms. Now, the popular endless-running game has finally made its way to the Windows Phone app store.

Microsoft on Thursday announced the availability of "Temple Run" on Windows Phone Store for free. However, the latest edition, "Temple Run 2", which was launched in January on Apple app store and Google Play store is still not available on the Windows phone platform.

Another drawback is that the game runs only on Windows Phone 8 smartphones and it requires 1GB RAM to be played.

This setback will dissapoint Nokia Lumia users as Lumia 820 and 920 are the only two smartphones in the Lumia series to meet the criteria. Other Lumia models like 510, 710 and the newly launched Lumia 520, Lumia 620 and Lumia 720 with Windows Phone 8 OS will not be able to support "Temple Run" as they have only 512MB RAM.   

Microsoft also announced the arrival of "Gravity Guy 2" on Windows Phone Store. The game will be exclusive for the Windows platform for at least a month before making its way to the Apple app store and Google Play store.

Other games expected to hit Windows Phone store are "Chaos Rings", "Fling Theory" (Exclusive Launch), "6th Planet", "Drift Mania Championship 2", "Propel Man" and "Orcs Must Survive".
