Subway Surfers bumped for New York City World Tour on Windows Phone

Another month and another update for the popular endless runner Subway Surfers. And no, this one too does not have 512 MB RAM support, so you can stop reading if that is what you want to know.

Instead, users today can head to the Store to update their Subway Surfers game to version 1.2, which includes the new New York City ‘World Tour’ theme. Previous world tour themes included Seoul, Miami and the Christmas theme (Mumbai was skipped due to timing with the other platforms).

Granted, this is just a re-skinning of the app, resulting in some Shamrocks appearing on walls in anticipation of St. Patrick’s day, more power lines, brick buildings and a cop wearing NYC blues. Likewise, you can now collect little Statue of Liberties for weekly contests, in addition to unlocking new boards or characters.

Subway Surfers ‘World Tour’ thing is a bit of a gimmick, but it’s one we like. It keeps the game fresh and even throws you off a bit, due to the altered backgrounds. Plus, the weekly challenges and contests give you something to work towards.

No word still on 512 MB RAM support, as that looks like something that might not be happening after all. Still, never say never. For now though, you’ll need 1 GB of RAM or more to play the free Subway Surfers.

Pick up 1.2 of Subway Surfers: New York City, World Tour, here in the Store.

Thanks, Sumit P., for the tip

Subway Surfers bumped for New York City World Tour on Windows Phone


Seriously? :O The only mobile games I like are gameloft ones, (which aren't really phone games honestly). No 512 RAM support is a little disappointing though.

Same like me, play it eveyday..
I like subway surfers more than the others because easy to control and I don't like tilt control. :p

WhatsApp beta updated to 2.11.390
it no longer crashes when loading old messages
Edit: app crashes after background change
no other problem
wont crash after sending multiple images

I love this game. Hopefully things will change with the achievement situation and they get added (and enhance the experience for me).

Look at it this way: Windows Phone gets updated the same day as iOS and Android for the same game. Parity, in that regard, is welcomed.

Daniel, why does this 30mb game not run on 512 Mb devices? If I remember correctly the limit is 80mb, right? There's nothing in the game that warrants more than 80mb!

Look at this halo spartan a high end game works on 512 mb ram so these games would definitely work... Its the developer and their engine

I get code optimization etc but why won't a game that's just 30mbs to download not run with 80 Mb ram space. Even if engines poor, code base is devoid of practices.. 30mb setup should logically run on 80mb free space. I know setup files are zip compressed but I still have my doubts is uncompressed pack is 80mb

That's the thing blame it to developers then they are not ready to port or lazy to port.... Ex : Halo Spartans... :)

They probably didn't try hard enough. Unity + MS and there's Space Heads, same genre that can run smoothly on 512MB devices.

I like Kiloo as they keep updating the game unlike Imangi Studios who is still struggling to solve the graphics issue Temple Run 2 has for L1320 and L525.

Once again we might hear a hue and cry for no 512 MB support. Guys I don't think its ever gonna come. I would suggest saving up some bucks and getting a 1GB RAM phone if possible.

As much as I hate to say it but i think alot of the Lumia 512 MB ram owners might switch to dare I say it ..... The x family.i wont want to....

Wouldn't it get more downloads with 512 ram support? I think there are more 512 models out there compared to 1gb.

Subway sufers is on my sister's android with 512 ram... Lags n crashes.. So on android its already looking worse.

Playing happily with no lag on my 720..the loading screen just take a bit long that's it..i don't wanna sideload but have no other choice

Stop breakin our hearts sayin that there's no support for 512 ram phones.. Please developer and ms do something.

I honestly don't get the appeal of this game. A friend showed it to me on his Android phone more than a year ago and I just thought it looked eh. Also, as a native of the NYC area, it kinda disturbs me that the premise of this game is to go surfing in the subway tracks. You do NOT want to attempt something like that anywhere, especially in NYC. Back when I was a kid, there was a boy in my class in junior high who crossed the tracks and actually lost his legs after getting hit by a train. :-O

I agree.  As somone who works with experimental jetpacks, it horrifies me to see a game where someone might pick up one of our machine gun jetpacks (which I really shouldn't talk about since it is still experimental) and glide through our office killing many of my scientist coworkers.  Thank god we have defense rockets and laser beams to stop anyone from doing it.

Oops I was trying to reply you asking to restart your phone to get the update but wpcentral crashed thrice, hope so you haven't lost much of coins and progress.

Daniel, are you still wearing your Fitbit Force in that photo? You're supposed to send that back in for the recall, haha!

still no suport for 512 mb ram... missing both ss and tr2... the people r laughing at us nw.... os without ss tr2 which r nearly 2 years old games.... #feelingverybad

Please give it a update for the 512 RAM plzzzz i beg you ........ It will boost up the game on windows phone too :)

London one was great, and I'd like to get that BACK.

Miami was ok-ish

Korea was dismal.

I know its supposed to be same game, but didn't feel that way.

I find this baffling. If the game doesn't support devices with 512 MB of RAM their target audience is ridiculously tiny! The developer possibly isn't making any money out of the Windows Phone platform.

What now Rubino? What about u saying that it was coming for 512mb devices in a few weeks when the game was launched... I don't want any answers from wpc or wp fan girls...

Ok im getting dissapointes in the launch of the game it said the in a couple of weeks subwayaurfers would be available in 512mb ram where is it waiting 520

Everytime 512mb devices don't get osum games. For Android games come on both 512mb devices and 1gb devices.

520,620,625,720. The Best selling. The Most forgotten. Oh.. 512mb RAM.... * Esspecially 620 which till today, no sign for black coming. * :'((

LOL!! L620 Still not get black update im L520 get black update in same time with L920...
I played subway surfers on my L520 by sideloading. Hahaha. LOL!!

funny how these low graphics game like subway surfer and temple run 2 doesn't work in 512 MB devices and temple run 1 keeps on crashing after running 4000m in 512 MB devices while better graphics games like Asphalt 8 has no issue in 512 MB devices

You fucking ass holes, i had not bought the fucking lumia 520 for this day,why aren't you giving the 512 mb support,those mother fucker android phones are able to play it on 512 mb ram , why don't you fucking idiots....

Really Frustrating, I ve got one of the Best WP ever made. LUMIA 520 - The Most Successful Variant till date yet Subway Surfers didnt set foot on my device. Man, why is that?? Even Low Memory Andro Phones have this game. Why not us??

I use 820 n not able to update since many days i get notification of update but when i click update it vanishes. Plz help . M still on Miami level . I even restarted n tried as someone said here in cmnts but of no help . Plz sme smart brain lt me hw hw cn i update.ashking2@hotmail.com
