Why This is Wirefly BUZZworthy

Thanks to the creation of the first smartphone, people can now play games, search the web, and talk with friends and family while on the go. If you are passing time or just one of those people who cannot detach yourself from your smartphone, you already know that it is very easy to stay occupied for hours. Well, there is a game worth mentioning that is really starting to take off and cause a lot of people to start noticing it.

Subway Surfers is a new game that was released within the last year but just now has really started to get a lot of attention. This could be due to the fact that this game is ever changing and ever updating. Every month the setting of the game changes. You could be subway surfing in New York City one month and Paris the next. In November 2013, Subway Surfers changed its city to London and gave it a Christmas theme. The month before that it had a special Halloween theme set in New Orleans.

This game is fun because it is similar to the already very popular Temple Run game in that the object of the game is to collect as many coins as possible, all the while avoiding randomly placed obstacles. The main character, Jake, surfs through the designated city of that month and as the game progresses you have the option to unlock other avatars or players for a one-time fee. You can buy additional coins if you like or just collect coins for free as the game progresses as well. This game is available on all Android and iOS devices now!

Pros

  • Free
  • Monthly setting updates (new cities to explore)
  • Fun and easy game
  • Fast paced and colorful design

Cons

  • None

Final Verdict

This app is great for anyone who loves games like Temple Run or Crash Bandicoot where the object is to collect as many coins as possible and avoid obstacles. With monthly updates the game stays fresh and exciting.
