The Snap Games platform debuted on Snapchat in April, allowing users to play a variety of mobile games with their friends within the social networking application. Now, a spinoff of one of the biggest mobile games in the world, Subway Surfers, debuted on Snap Games.
Subway Surfers Airtime from SYBO Games is now rolling out to Snapchat users worldwide. It can be accessed by opening a chat or group chat on Snapchat and tapping the rocket icon to view all of the available games.
Subway Surfers Airtime is a side-scrolling multiplayer racing game that supports up to 10 players per race. As players compete, they can collect 14 different Subway Surfers characters.
In a press release, Will Wu, head of Snap Games, said, “Snap Games is mobile games made for friends, so it’s exciting that SYBO has developed its first franchise extension of Subway Surfers for our platform. We can’t wait to see how our community embraces this new way to connect and play with their friends through the familiar world of Subway Surfers.”
