Subway Surfers review

Published & copyrighted by SYBO Games

Subway Surfers is an endless runner mobile game developed and published by Kiloo and Sybo Games. The player takes on the role of a young graffiti artist who must outrun the police after being caught in the act of tagging a train station. The game is set in a variety of locations around the world, and the player must use their agility and quick thinking to avoid obstacles and reach the end of the level before time runs out.


In Subway Surfers, the player controls one of a group of teenage hooligans who, upon being caught in the act of applying graffiti to (tagging) a metro railway site, run down the tracks to escape the Inspector and his dog. As the hooligan runs, he or she grabs gold coins out of the air while simultaneously dodging collisions with railway cars and other objects, and can also jump on top of the trains to evade capture. Special events, such as the Weekly Hunt, can result in in-game rewards and characters. On rare occasions, non-special, board-specific obstacles can become "special" (for example, carpets can fly, and sumo wrestler cutouts can spring up from the ground). These events affect gameplay in that the character does not stop running, and therefore the player must quickly maneuver to avoid the new obstacles.

When the player collides with an obstacle, the hooligan has knocked off the surfboard. Colliding with certain obstacles, such as lamp posts, benches and signposts, may cause the character to flip over entirely, resulting in an in-game loss of coins. Additionally, if the character hits the ground, they will be "arrested" by the Inspector and his dog, resulting in a loss of coins. Some of the obstacles, specifically the roof access equipment, can be vaulted over by swiping upwards, and other obstacles, such as oncoming trains, can be avoided by swiping to the side.


The graphics and overall presentation of Subway Surfers is one of the best in the mobile game world and makes graphics and visual presentation better than most consoles and pc games.

The overall graphics of the game and the visual presentation is not just good but great and the game looks amazing on most of the platforms especially on PC.


The sound is decent for a mobile game. The soundtrack is upbeat and does not get too repetitive. There is also a voice that cheers you on from time to time.


Subway Surfers is a game that you can play over and over. The game is quite addicting. I can see myself playing this game while I am waiting in line or just need to kill a few minutes.


Subway Surfers is a fun and addictive game that is perfect for those looking for a quick fix. The simple controls and vibrant graphics make it easy to pick up and play, and the challenging gameplay will keep you coming back for more. However, the lack of depth and variety may cause some players to lose interest after a while.


  • Great graphics and animations
  • Addictive gameplay
  • Lots of Subway Surfers cheat codes are available online


  • Some users report that the game is too easy to beat
  • In-app purchases can be expensive
  • Some levels can be frustrating to complete
