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
