Subway Surfers is an endless action video game developed & published by Kiloo & SYBO Games. The player takes on the role of an average teen (or, on rare occasions, a young adult or an older kid) vandalizing a subway train, and is caught by The Inspector and his dog. The player must run away from the two, who are chasing him/her. In the Sydney Update, they added Keys, which revive the character if they should choose to use them. The game is available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone platforms.
Launched in 2012, "World Tour" is the theme of the game, where the settings are in cities like New York, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney, Rome, Tokyo and Miami, only a few of the many locations that have been featured up until this point. The game starts with a default character, Jake. However, as players collect more coins, they will eventually get the chance to unlock new characters. As well as coins, they can collect UFOs and Radios in order to unlock Yutani and Fresh, respectively.
The object of the game is to run as far as possible in a endless game world while avoiding randomly generated obstacles that require the player to either jump (slide finger forward), duck (slide finger backwards) and dodge the oncoming trains in a precise manner.

- Jetpack: Allows the player flight, temporary invincibility and collecting coins.
- 2X Multiplier: Doubles the player's multiplier. (x3 = x6)
