With the Chromium-based Edge Browser, Microsoft tries to copy Google wherever possible. In the latest move, the Software giant has finally added a mini-game in Edge which can be played when offline, just like Google Chrome.
This mini-game was in preview from the last few months. And now, after testing it on its benchmarks, Microsoft has updated Edge with a new Surf game that takes you back to the old SkiFree game from Windows’ past.
Well, Microsoft’s new mini-game is quite more sophisticated than jumping a dinosaur over cactus plants in Chrome. It is really very interesting to play this game while you wait for the internet connection to back online.
At its heart, it’s an endless runner where you surf around obstacles and stay one step ahead of a Kraken. There are also objective-based time trial and zig-zag (really, slalom) modes, though. You can also use a variety of input that includes your mouse, keyboard, touch, or even a gamepad with haptic feedback.
You can even set high visibility and low-speed modes to adjust the difficulty of the game according to your need. Well, you can access this game anytime by plugging edge://surf into the address bar, or it will automatically be triggered once you lost your Internet connectivity.
