We've seen more and more endless runner-style games show up in the Play Store, and, up to this point, they have all seemed basically the same. Enter Subway Surfers, a fun and whimsical take on the runner genre that just made its way to Android from iOS.

In Subway Surfers, you play the part of a delinquent kid named Jake who's running from an overly-grumpy inspector and his dog. You have to jump, flip, and grind from track to track on your hoverboard, picking up coins and avoiding trains as they pass by. For certain levels, you'll ditch the hoverboard and take to the skies with your paint-powered jetpack.

If you're not sold after hearing about hoverboards and paint-powered jetpacks, I have no idea what will actually impress you. Seriously.

    I hoped it wouldn't be a free game, i'd be willing to pay for it, and giving it a price tag makes it look better.

    Love the music and I also love the fact that unlike other running games its forgiving as you can take a hit and still keep going. An although it is using IAP, in this format it works as this is a pick and play game you would play to waste some time.
