    It’s slightly off-putting that it definitely takes too long to get to the higher levels, and consequently that it strays close to undermining that desire to instantly have “just one more go.” The overall quality of the matching experience was ultimately strong enough to pull me back, largely helped by the smart secondary Puzzle Mode.

    Objectively speaking, it’s a game with visuals that functions, and that’s how it shall be scored.

    Surge Deluxe is perfect for a handheld system, allowing the player to dip in and out as they please.

    If you're after value, Surge Deluxe delivers: it's pretty, it's cheap and it's a good quick game to play. Just don't expect anything game-changing. [Issue#145, p.115]

    A great alternative to Candy Crush and its clones, that’s just a few tweaks – and a visual makeover – away from being a classic puzzler.

However, true longevity of this game would be just a few hours I would say, because it gts repetitive quite quickly. To be honest, these kind of games should be free, I got it from PS Plus free, so it's all good, but I can't imagine paying for this kind of stuff. 5/10 Full Review »

The constant threat of the time limit and pressure build up will keep you on your toes, and it's addictive enough to become yet another game that will have you saying "just one more go." The main mode of the game will keep you coming back in order to beat your best score or unlock more trophies, but I found the game's puzzle mode to be a bit lackluster. I just didn't feel the same addictive quality in it, which disappointed me a bit. Still, the overall package can be an absolute blast. So if you're looking for a fast-paced and addictive puzzler to take with you on the go, then this is worth your time. Full Review »
