Get Ready To Be Surprised By Subway Surfers
Today's number 1 free iPhone app is Subway Surfers, so naturally, seeing that it only had 5 star ratings, I decided to check it out for myself. And I was glad I did.
First of all, Subway Surfers is the type of game that hooks you from the first tap on the screen. It's engaging, it's challenging and it's got real nice graphics. But what will probably catch most of you by surprise is the game play.
For those of you who have played Temple Run, Subway Surfers will look like a well done sequel. The controls are the same, some of the boosts and power-ups are pretty much the same and the goal is, as you probably know by now, the same.
The characters and background are, however, different. Because this time, instead of a bunch of weird devil monkeys chasing you, there's a train conductor. You're a kid who obviously has done something wrong and now is trying to escape the conductor, running from track to track, trying to avoid trains, barriers and other similar obstacles. The more coins you collect before you get hurt and the conductor catches you, the more achievements you unlock. Plus, just like in Temple Run, you can use the coins to buy all sorts of cool power-ups and upgrades.
Looks like the creators of Temple Run have done it again, right? Well, wrong. Because if you take a closer look at the app page, you'll soon realize that, in fact, Temple Run and Subway Surfers don't have the same creators. Now, I don't know if the company changed its name in the meantime or, indeed, the two games are made by different people. But one thing's for sure: Subway Surfers is as captivating as Temple Run, and you'll probably spend just as much time playing it.
