Subway Surfers is a third-person 3D arcade-style game with platforming elements, similar to Temple Run. The player controls a character (initially only a boy named Jake is available) who runs away from an inspector and his dog on railway tracks and through trains. The protagonist runs automatically; player-controlled actions involve jumping, sliding under obstacles, and moving left or right (the hero always faces the same direction). The run ends if the protagonist crashes against an obstacle.

Coins are scattered through the randomly generated environments and can be spend on power-ups. Those include single-use items such as a headstart for a portion of the run, as well as permanent upgrades with several levels of effectiveness. Among the latter is double-value coin power-up, a coin magnet, and a jetpack that allows the player character to fly above the trains for a short while.
