Free Subway Surfers Vs Minion Rush: Which is More Fun to Download?


If you’re looking for an exciting game, but one that’s not too frustrating enough that if you don’t make it to the next level, you won’t have the urge to curse at the top of your lungs out of frustration.

What you need is a different kind of game genre. A game that’s fun to play without letting your emotion gets in the way. Endless running games might just be what the doctor orders. These games are casual and yet captivating.

They’re perfect games to play if you have some time to kill before an appointment, or when you’re at the bus stop or in the train. Or you know, pretty much when you have nothing to do, and instead of trying to burn a hole on the wall with your stares, you’d rather make the most out of your iOS or Android device. The good news is there are a lot of options to choose from. Ever since Temple Run introduced the endless running category, several others were launched. The two of the most popular free apps are Minion Rush and Subway Surfers. Here’s a guide that will help you decide which of the two you should download.

Subway Surfers

The game has the character running along subway tracks and is being chased down by a police officer. The obstacles along his way include oncoming and idle trains, light posts, and roadblocks. You can control the character with a swipe of your finger; swipe up to jump over the obstacles, slide down to glide under them, and swipe to the left or right to switch directions. Just like Temple Run, Subway Surfers has a collection of missions to keep the game more engaging. Power-ups can be collected as well and since coins are easily collected, in-app purchases are not really necessary. The most engaging thing about this game is its bold and colorful design.

Minion Rush

A takeaway from the hit movie, Despicable Me, Minion Rush features the cute, little minions of the movie’s main character. This time, the yellow sidekicks are the main characters as they race down the lab and even through the residential suburban streets. They even bought their high-pitched giggles and funny antics. Instead of coins, your minion character collects bananas but they have the same purpose as coins on Subway Surfers; to upgrade power-ups. The obstacles include glass panels, school buses, fire hydrants, and road signs. Like other infinite running games, Minion Rush also comes with missions and goals so that the game is not solely about how far you can run without crashing on to obstacles. It’s a free game that’s perfect for anyone who enjoyed the movie, especially the children.

The Verdict

In all honesty, choosing which to download between these two free apps is hard. Both have features that are hard to turn away from. Subway Surfers and Minion Rush both have astounding graphics, sound design, and even animation. You can’t really win by choosing one, so might as well download the two apps. After all, two is better than one, right?
