A new game by Lexis Numerique, Surfacer is a wonderful version of a popular Fire Tail genre of games where the task is to take over a block of territory by avoiding enemies that may get in your way. The main difference is that in Surfacer you are creating circles instead of rectangles which gives the game a whole new feel. Whilst in Fire Tail you have to avoid enemies whilst you are drawing lines, here the circles you create must be complete before they are touched by the bouncing enemies. This is accompanied by wonderful backing music as well as resulting dynamics and collisions between the circles you draw. Each level gives circles random fills so with every level in the game you somewhat explore new graphical patterns and compositions. As with Fire Tail, the further you progress the more enemies levels include. Something that starts quite simple with only creating shapes to meet 66% requirement, soon becomes more about blocking enemies’ paths and separating areas where you can create circles. A play of patterns, dynamics, geometry, music and graphics makes Surfacer a must addition to your app collection. See movie demo below.
Considering this is also a free download, I can not recommend it more.
