Subway Surfers is an endless runner mobile game co-developed by Kiloo and SYBO Games, private companies based in Denmark and India. It is available on Android, iOS, Kindle, and Windows Phone platforms. The objective of the game is to run as far as possible from the police, who are chasing the player, while avoiding obstacles, such as oncoming trains.


Subway Surfers is an "endless runner" mobile game. The game's protagonist is Jake, a graffiti artist who is caught by the police while applying graffiti to a metro railway site. The player controls Jake by swiping up, down, left, or right on the touch screen, in order to make him jump, duck, or dodge obstacles. Swiping up on the touch screen causes Jake to jump, while swiping down makes him duck. Swiping left or right changes his direction. The game also incorporates hoverboards into the game, which the player can use by double tapping on the screen. These hoverboards have different abilities, such as increased speed, invincibility, and double coins.

While Jake is running, the player must avoid colliding with obstacles, such as oncoming trains, and can also collect coins and power-ups. Coins can be used to purchase in-game items, such as hoverboards and character outfits. Power-ups provide the player with temporary invincibility, increased speed, and double coins. If the player collides with an obstacle, the game ends and the player must start from the beginning of the game. The game also ends if the player is caught by the police.


The graphics in Subway Surfers are colorful and vivid, and the game is set in a 3D environment. The player characters and obstacles are all rendered in 3D, and the game's environments are based on real-world locations. The game's environments are also interactive, and the player can collide with objects in the environment, such as benches and trash cans.

Information about replayability

Subway Surfers is an endless runner game, which means that the game does not have a specific ending. The player can continue to play the game for as long as they want, and the game's difficulty will increase the longer the player runs. The game also contains in-app purchases, which allow the player to buy coins, power-ups, and other items.


Subway Surfers was released on 24 May 2012 with updates based on seasonal holidays. Since January 2013, updates have been based on a "World Tour" theme, which has taken the characters to various cities around the world. The game is free to download and play, but contains in-app purchases for additional in-game items.
