The Rio edition
of subway surfers
, the second in the World Tour theme, was released in February 2013. Rio was one of the most popular editions
in the series, featuring varied environments, a new
character and board, as well as several gameplay tweaks.
You were able to purchase Carmen, a limited edition
character, for 95,000 coins
, as well as the Toucan Board, for 50,000 Coins.
Finally, this edition
also stopped frequent use of headstarts at the beginning of levels, and introduced the Score Booster power-up. The Score Booster costs 3,000 coins
and can be attained through the Mystery Box. The purpose of it is to add 5 to your multiplier for the duration of the level. It effectively replaced the Headstart.
