The Surf game in Edge browser
The Surf game was officially released for insiders running the testing builds of Microsoft Edge back in February 2020, and later the same year, it made its way to the stable builds of the browser beginning with Microsoft Edge 83.
The Redmond-based software giant says the game is also a great way to kill some time off when an Internet connection is now available, explaining the game was inspired by another title previously available on Windows devices.
“Inspired by the classic Windows game SkiFree, the surf game challenges players to ride through the water while avoiding islands, fellow surfers, and other obstacles. Watch out for the kraken! Players can also collect hearts to extend their lives and boosts for a burst of speed. Surf as far as possible in an endless ocean, compete for the shortest time, or zig zag through as many gates as you can in a row. With three distinct game modes, players have a variety of ways to pass the time,” Microsoft said last May.
You can try out the Surf game today in the stable version of Edge or in the preview builds on Android.
