Subway Surfers is a mobile game developed by Kiloo and SYBO games. With an endless running gameplay, this app entails escaping from a police officer and his loyal dog through the train tracks. However, this task is not easy: you have to avoid all kind of obstacles and barriers that appear in your way. You have to be very agile and jump, duck or dodge every obstacle so as not to slow down your speed, or simply stop and get caught.
You have to avoid all kinds of obstacles and barriers that appear in your way
At first, you control Jake, a young graffiti artist who crashes into the train station. A police guard sees him and Jake decides to run as fast as he can. In your way, you have to collect coins that will serve you to buy upgrades to your character. You can also buy power-ups (that can be found in the tracks) and new characters to play—for instance, Spike, Yutani, Lucy or Tricky.
The gameplay of Subway Surfers is pretty simple—you just have to avoid barriers by jumping, ducking and dodging. Performing all the movements is easy: to jump you have to slide your finger up on the screen, to duck just slide your finger down, and to move right and left, slide your finger in your desired direction. That's all! However, don't go thinking it is too easy, since your reflexes will be tested as endless obstacles appear without warning. The first stages of the race are easy— your character does not run too fast. However, if you are able to keep running, your character will increase its speed and you will have less time to react.
Even when the gameplay may seem a bit repetitive, the developers won't let you get bored. They offer upgrades often, so you can visit different places such as Sydney, Rio de Janeiro, Moscow, Tokyo, etc. In this way, Kiloo strives to keep its app fresh, and at least you won't see the same background again and again.
Regarding power-ups, there are different kinds. For example, the Coin Magnet and the Jetpack will help your get more coins, while the Multiplier and the Sneakers will increase your score or speed respectively. With the coins you collect, you can upgrade these power-ups, making them last longer or improving their performance.
