Subway Surfers is an endless runner game. In this game, players have to run away from authorities on a busy train route. Gross speed and rapid reaction time abilities are required to play. However, this game is just like the Temple Run, with several major twists that really make this game a much more enjoyable experience in many ways.
All the right elements like; a pleasant universe, lively graphics, and fast-paced are combined in this game. Along with that Mild violence, criminal themes, advertising, and Facebook connectivity is also reviewed in this game which makes it PG (parental guidance) for children under 15. This game is running one of the few games that manage to stand out.
Some parents observe this game as an attraction towards breaking the law because the title of this game shows the character clearly knowing that he should not be vandalizing the train with graffiti, as he cautiously looks around between sprays.
Additionally, the collectibles come dangerously close to speeding on-coming trains along the train lines. Since this game is pretty bright and colorful, with attractive-looking animated characters, this could trivialize illegal activity for some.
Subway Surfers starts with the main character illegally spray painting the part of a train. After tapping the screen, a guard or police officer comes into view and the main character starts running away from that guard.
Players have to run beside the train line, dodging fast-moving on-coming trains and running along the tops of them, at the same time gathering the collectibles such as coins and particular items. Coins can be used to purchase hoverboards and new characters. Keys can also be collected which lets the player carry on the current run if they get caught.
The main aim of this game is to run as far as possible (the level is infinite) without hitting a train or any other objects and getting caught by the guard or police officer.
All actions are made by swiping the screen (move left and right, up (jump), and down (roll under), and to fire up a hoverboard, you can use the spacebar button. Just gross speed and fast response time skills are obligatory to play.
ACCM (Australian Council on Children and the Media) does not recommend it to children under 13 due to the criminal nature of this game (and saturated advertising and Facebook features) also parental guidance is advised for children aged 13 to 15.
Subway Surfers is one of the best time killers and one can play it in the breaks at work odd, and even at home.
