Need more information.

What are your target platforms?

Would you use a game engine like Unity?

How many programmers will you have?

How experienced are your programmers?

Even after having this information, we can only give you wild guesses.

programmingwise it is an insanely simple game (Especially with an engine like unity), so a few weeks should be enough. it is the artwork that requires the real work for such a game.

as i said, its not that much, the running is a few hours work with Unity3D, a few weeks is more than enough to implement transactions(there are finished libraries for this), gui, special coins, etc.
Artwise you got several manmonths of work though. Edited by SimonForsman

If you're serious about this, you may be able to find art assets already for sale that could either complete your game or significantly reduce time spent. If you can't find the complete set, you may be able to pay the creator of the assets to create any additional ones you need using a similar style. Otherwise you'll have to mix and match, or find another good artist who can create art in a style similar to the other.

I had seen the video of the guy called david whatley . He did the porting work of the temple run to other platforms through unity3d . He took the obj -c codes and ported it into unity3d scripts it took months to finish it . So please don't through something . I want to know the approx budget and time frame but close to reality . Thanks

A good programmer might take < 1 month. A bad one will take many months / years. So, somewhere in that range. Every programmer is different. Good ones are hundreds of times better than others.
