Subway Surfers doesn't need any kind of introduction or Help file, as the controls will be already familiar from the well-known Temple Run. The free iOS game fails to innovate, yet its nice design and environment will keep most players entertained.
The app can't beat the Temple Run marks, but what we liked was that it places you into a situation. Although you don't know what you saw in the temple, you run to save your life. Subway Surfers is the story of a naughty boy, an endless runner, who paints graffiti on subways. The core of this game is to run as long as you can, collect coins and other power-ups while running, and try to avoid obstacles, which, in this scenario, are trains, lamp posts, barricades, tunnels, and much more. To put it in another way: it's Temple Run in a much nicer, more colorful setting, since the controls are the same and even the "collect coins" sound is similar. A powerful and funny tweak is the Hoverboard which will boost your speed, as well as increase the risk of failing the daily mission you're set. The list of power-ups is quite long, and what we liked beyond the colorful interface was that the developers don't push for in-app purchases, as you can use the collected coins to upgrade your Hoverboard.
Although Subway Surfers isn't an innovative game, the cute characters, environment full of bright colors, and fluid animations contribute to an enhanced user experience. There are lots of these types of games available for download, but this free game will certainly entertain you for a while.
