Microsoft has finally rolled out the little surfing game for all the users. The Microsoft Edge Surf game was available for the testers since February 2020, and it can be played with a mouse, gamepad, keyboard, and even touchscreen.
The Microsoft Edge Surf game is similar to the classic game SkiFree that was released for Windows back in 1991. In the game, the player had to control the skier and move forward, dodging obstacles and a snow monster too.
Also, this no internet game is Microsoft’s answer to Chrome’s dinosaur game that kicks in when the internet goes off. But you can still play it while you’re online.
Edge Surf Game Modes
In the game, you are allowed to choose a character from the given options and pick a game mode. The surfing game comprises three different game modes, including the classic Let’s Surf, Time Trial, and Zig Zag.
Let’s Surf Mode: It is the classic surf mode of the Microsoft Edge game in which you play in an endless surfer mode, and you have to save your self from any restrictions in the path. You have to also save yourself from the Kraken chasing you in the game.
Time trial mode: As the name suggests, you have to collect coins in the game and shorten the time by finding short routes.
Slalom mode: The slalom mode or the Zig Zag mode of the surfing game is one of the most difficult ones. In this mode, you have to hit every gate, or your streaks will reset.
How To Play The Microsoft Edge Surf Game?
You have to keep in mind that you need the latest version of the Microsoft Edge web browser (build 83.0.478.37) to play this free no internet game.

The Surf game can emerge as the best no internet game due to its interactive interface, choice of character, and game modes. As compared to the Chrome dinosaur game, Microsoft Edge Surf game has more attractive gameplay.
However, it can be said that the Chrome Dinosaur game and the Microsoft Edge game have very similar gameplay, as in both the games, the player is required to move forward (or downward) and dodge obstacles.
