Let us introduce to you the hottest game of the outgoing year, no matter what kind of mobile platform is in question - Subway Surfers. Finally the owners of smartphones based on Windows Phone will be able to enjoy this colorful and dynamic arcade game haunting many gamers from around the world. Events of the game unfold on one of the railway stations in London.
The main character is an ardent lover of graffiti and as a true follower of this kind of art he wanted to leave a reminder of himself on one of the carriages of a train. However, at the crucial moment the boy was seen by a local guard and in order not to fall into his hands and then the police's, the main character ran away directly by rail way.
The game has a Christmas decoration and one of its goals is to collect sparkling Christmas trees that can turn into a gift. Even the man chasing your mentee is dressed like Santa Claus. That's all that can be presented as the plot.
GameplayThe gameplay is an endless race between trains standing and rushing towards the main character, as well as on their roofs and even in the air over the railway. Virtually the entire road will be littered with gold coins by collecting which you can afford to buy different kinds of accelerators and other bonuses. In addition, by earning achievements and completing missions, you can buy new clothes for your mentee, change the reactive board or even the character himself.
In addition to the coins, on the way the main character will come across huge shoes helping break away from the pursuer at a significant distance, as well as a jetpack and a skipjack with which you can overcome a considerable distance hovering over the tracks and trains. Also in the game there are bonuses that can be activated at any time.
Activation of boostersFor example, by double-tapping on the screen you can get a jet snowboard that allows the main character to accelerate for 30 seconds and even gives immunity from collision with obstacles. That is, if you let the main character crash into a train or some fencing at the time when there is the reactive board under his feet, he will not fall and will continue to run, however, already on foot.
Super bonuses and resurrection after failAt the beginning of the game, there will be a few magic keys at your disposal with which you will be able to continue the race even after the guard catches the main character. However, there are not so much of such keys, and with each subsequent capture you will need twice as much of them (in a single attempt to set a new record) than in previous times. You can get new keys by collecting boxes with gifts that can be unwrapped after the loss, but honestly, such surprises are very rare (the keys precisely). It's easier to buy them through the system Donat.
ResumeControlling in the game is standard and carried out by means of taps and gestures on the screen. As it has already been mentioned, the graphics in the game are amazing. It is illustrated both by the design of the game world and the animation. We recommend the game to everyone without exception. Especially, given the fact that you can download it absolutely for free.
