AARHUS, September 24, 2015 - Kiloo and Sybo, leading developers and publishers of interactive games for mobile devices, announced today that the smash-hit Subway Surfers has been downloaded more than 1 billion times across platforms. After three years on the market, Subway Surfers is now the 4th most downloaded game of all time.

In Subway Surfers, players take the role of the graffiti-tagging main character Jake or one of his many friends. They run from the grumpy inspector and his dog through the Subway systems of famous cities around the world while collecting coins and dodging oncoming trains.

The Subway Surfers World Tour visits a new famous destination every month - the next update will see the Surfers in Kenya. Subway Surfers was co-created by the two Danish game developers Kiloo and Sybo Games in 2012, and has been updated with new content every month since.
