Subway Surfers - Coins

Coin Shop:

  • Pile of Coins - 7,500 Coins - $0.99 
  • A Bunch of Coins - 45,000 Coins - $4.99 (Best Deal?)
  • A Chest of Coins - 180,000 Coins - $19.99 (Actual more than the Bunch!)

Earn Coins:

  • Sponsored Video - 50 coins (by AdColony)

The game is fun as is… not sure how well they’ll do with Coin purchases. 
I rarely buy games - let alone purchase in game money.
I want play Yutani as much as the next person… but will whales pay for it?

To get all the characters you need - 3 Hats, 50 Stereos, 200 Guitars and 500 UFOs.  If you were incredible lucky and ALL your mystery box purchases were the tokens you need - it would cost you (773 tokens/boxes) x 500 Coins =  376,500 Coins.  Roughly $41.75 if ALL the boxes were tokens… the right tokens no less. 

I just unlocked Tricky.  I like it, but it’s not like game play has changed much.  Oh sure - I’ll play enough to unlock Fresh too no doubt… as I want to see him paint and run with the stereo on his shoulder (let’s hope). 


Anyway - would you buy… or have you ever bought coins for Subway Surfers?
For any other game?  Let me know…

Subway Surfers - Characters / Tokens

  • Jake
  • Tricky 
  • Fresh 
  • Spike
  • Yutani

  • Tricky’s hat - 3 tokens

Subway Surfers - Boosts - Single Use & Upgrades

Single Use:

  • Hoverboard - 300 Coins
  • Mystery Box - 500 Coins
  • HeadStart 250 - 400 Coins
  • HeadStart 1000 - 2000 Coins
  • Skip Mission - 1500 Coins

Upgrades: 5 Levels Each - 500/1500/3000/10000/30000 Coins

  • Jetpack 
  • Super Sneakers 
  • Coin Magnet 
  • 2x 

So 45,000 coins to max out each upgrade - 180,000 coins total.

Coincidentally - they sell a Chest of 180,000 Coins for $19.99.
Or $19.96 total to max all upgrades via 4 Bunches of Coins.
Tell me when they fix that… :)

Strategies:

  • Try to max out permanent upgrades before buying single use boosts
  • Max out coin gathering boosts first - Jetpack / Coin Magnet  
  • Max out Super Sneakers last - doesn’t get you extra coins or points  

Corrections?  Thoughts?  Other Strategies?
