Subway Surfers, which is produced by the Danish game company Kiloo, was 2015’s most downloaded game.

According to App Annie, an analytics company that tracks the app market, downloads at Apple’s App Store and Google Play combined to make Kiloo’s hit game the number one.

Aarhus-based, family-owned company
Kiloo is based in Aarhus and operated by brothers Jacob and Simon Møller. The company has about 100 employees.

Subway Surfers is a ‘freemium game’, which means it is free to download and play while offering in-app purchases.

Even though Subway Surfers was the most downloaded game, it was not one of the top ten highest earners.
