Subway Surfers has been one of the most hyped games in the history of mobile gaming. This game is an endless 3-D runner game after Temple Run. It starts with a boy drawing graffiti on the wall of a train coach parked in subway with the help of sprays. Noticing this, the guard whistles and the boy starts running. The guard starts following him. Now it is you who has to save him from all the obstacles which come in your way when you are running away. The controls are very basic in this- Swipe up to jump, Swipe down to duck, Swipe left to strafe left and Swipe right to strafe right. It becomes difficult when you play it for a little long time like more than 5 minutes. This happens because it becomes a fast-paced game, you have to do multiple swipes at once.
The basic features of Subway Surfers portrayed here are the power-ups along with their functions.
This power-up is a useful one when you have coins available to collect along all the three lanes at a single time. This magnet attracts each and every coin available.
Hover Board is one of the best features of Subway Surfers. It can be availed anytime within game when double-tapped on screen. It is a life-savior because whenever you are about to crash it gets used up and saves you. Some of them have their own special abilities.
A momentary relief for those who are having a long game of about 15 minutes. This offers a freestyle roaming for around a minute which helps a player to attain in-game rest.
Ever heard about an animal named ‘Kangaroo’? Well, this power-up in Subway Surfers makes you a one. It allows you to jump above the train coach or you can get on an overhead bridge if you jump from above of a train.
2x Score Multiplier
This is a live-run score booster. In Subway Surfers, the score-line is doubled for a short time if this power-up is enabled. For example- if you are having a score multiplier of 5 then after enabling this power-up it will increase to 10.
