"Subway Surfers" is a game where players take the role of youthful hooligans. When caught when spraying graffiti over the metro station, try to run down the railway tracks to escape the angry inspector and his dog.
As the players (hooligans) run, they are supposed to grab gold coins and avoiding collision with railway cars and other obstacles along the way. This game is available in Android, iOS and Windows Phone platforms.
Here are some tips and tricks that can help players score high:
How to Jump High
This trick uses a glitch allowing a player to jump high using a jetpack. Jumping at the right moment is key to attain the boost. Players need a jetpack for this trick to work. After collecting the last coin, players need to swipe as quickly as possible as the jetpack is running out of fuel. This will make the character jump in mid air. If done right, this will allow the character to land right on top of the train.
How to Run Backwards
According to Subway Surfers' wikia, this is one of the funny glitches that allow the character to run backward. As a first step, players need to get a Mega Headstart from the Mystery Box. This item can also be purchased. When players have the Mega Headstart, they can start playing. But they have to ensure they die within a few seconds of play. Right in the very moment before death, click on the headstart to activate it. The character should fly backward if the trick is done right. This is one of the hardest tricks so players might need practice to perfect this.
How to Avoid Death
To use this trick, the player should standstill without moving even when bumping into an obstacle. Until the character moves to another lane, you have to stand still. To activate, the player should swipe in any direction to keep moving when there is an obstacle in front of the character and a train in the other side. Before death, the player should veer toward the side of the train all of a sudden. This is the hardest trick to activate which does not always work. The perfect timing matters.
How to Get Free Board
This trick helps the player to get the Miami Special Board for free. To get the board free of cost, the player should navigate to the device settings and change the date to May 30, 2013. Once the change is set, open the Boards Section to see the new Miami Special Board. Since this is a glitch, there is a chance that you might not get it right in the first attempt, so try one more time.
How to Double the Collected Coins
This trick doubles the collected coin of the player. But the player needs a jetpack and a super sneakers power-up for this trick to work. Upon getting the items, the player should swipe across the screen to collect as many coins as needed. With this trick, all the collected coins will be doubled immediately.
How to Get Limited Edition Items From the Past
This trick allows the player to buy limited edition characters and special missions from the shop, which have been removed from sale. But the background scenes will not change. To activate the trick, the player should navigate to the device's date and time settings and set the date to the limited edition character's availability date in the past.
Here are some examples to the limited edition characters from the past:
- Set the date/time to "April 5, 2013" to get Kim and Outback.
- Set the date/time to "May 4, 2013" to get Harumi and Fortune.
