Surge Deluxe is a puzzle game where you must match up blocks of the same color before your run out of time. It’s a traditional concept that never really gets old. You swipe your finger around to link the blocks, then remove your finger to destroy the blocks. It is wrapped together with a vibrant neon theme with lots of color and effects that are attractive to look at. The game comes with two game modes, play and puzzle. Play is just a standard timed game where you will have to clear level after level of blocks until you eventually get caught out and loose. Puzzle provides you with a specific block layout that you must clear and achieve a target score. Both game modes are enjoyable and are great to play if you have a few minutes to kill.
Visually the game is nice to look at. The neon theme provides a lot of strong and vibrant colours. Coloured electricity bolts appear when you link blocks together and a nice explosive effect is triggered when you clear blocks. The developers did a great job bringing life to this game through the visuals. It makes the game a lot more enjoyable to play when it looks this nice.
The gameplay is simple. You use your finger to link as many blocks of the same color together and then release your finger to clear them from the screen. There are bonus blocks that will give you score multipliers, bombs, color changers etc. in addition to special blocks you also have vents at either side of the area. You must clear all blocks in the way before being able to use them. Using the vents releases pressure which gives you more time to clear the remaining blocks. The vents are coloured like the blocks are, when you open a vent the matching color block will get a score bonus if cleared while the vent is still open.
