Soccer Runner is an endless running game for football fans

Endless running games are starting to feel the same, but something hit the Windows Phone Store that feels a bit different. Soccer Runner introduces a football element to the usual gameplay found on Subway Surfers. Run, jump, slide, break, dodge, and score goals in this unique endless runner. Want to see some gameplay? Watch our hands-on video with the Lumia 930!

You start to play as Mark with his soccer ball. An angry man starts chasing Mark, so you've got no choice but to run as far as you can without crashing into boxes, trash bins, hurdles, trucks, and more. There are also other players on the street that want to tackle you.

Along the way, Mark faces goalkeepers. You need to swipe in the same directions as the arrows shown on the screen to score a goal. There are 20 goalkeepers to go through.

If you play Subway Surfers, a lot of things feel the same. There are power-ups and boosts like higher jumps, magnets, and flying in the air. One thing that's different is that you can kick the ball towards trash bins or boxes to clear the way.

While the main goal is to run as far as you can and collect coins, there are missions available as well to keep things challenging. Some examples include getting 200 coins in one run, sliding 20 times, or grabbing 2 super jumps. Completing these missions gives you rewards such as score multipliers.

Collecting coins is just as important as running as far as you can. These coins can be used to buy things from the shop. You can get new characters, boosts, upgrades, or skip missions. For example, a power drink that briefly makes you invincible costs 400 coins.

If you're a big fan of Subway Surfers, you can't go wrong with Soccer Runner. It's a free download, so give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments!
