After gaining popularity, it was made available globally in October 2023. The concept originates from a Chinese browser game titled “Merge Big Watermelon” (合成大西瓜 [zh]) that was released in January 2021.

GAMEPLAY

Suika Game is a puzzle game focusing on stacking objects in a confined space, reminiscent of Tetris. The player, represented as a cloud called Poppy, is tasked with dropping a wide range of fruits in a box, aiming for the highest score without having a single fruit cross the line at the top of the box and overflowing out, or else the game would end.

To keep the fruits from overflowing out of the box, the player must match two types of fruits for them to merge into the next biggest fruit in the cycle, increasing the player’s score. The bigger the fruits that merge the larger the point bonus is, with the largest merger the player can achieve resulting in the titular suika (watermelon).

If two watermelons merge, they poof from the box. Suika Game has no time limit to rush the player with; but unlike in games such as Tetris, the fruits are affected by physics causing them to hit each other and roll away from where they were initially dropped. Sometimes the pressure released by two fruits merging is enough to send a fruit out of the box and end the game.

There are 11 fruits in the game and they go in a cycle from smallest to largest: the cherry, the strawberry, the grapes, the dekopon, the persimmon, the apple, the pear, the peach, the pineapple, the cantaloupe, the titular watermelon. However, the fruits that the player can drop into the box are limited to the five smallest in the cycle.

The order the player can drop the fruit is completely random, but they can see the fruit that is coming up one turn ahead. For the Chinese “Synthetic Big Watermelon” browser game version, the order of the fruits is slightly different as the game features kiwis, lemons, and mandarin oranges in its cycle.

Suika Game also features an online leaderboard to compare other players’ ranks online, being split between scores from “daily”, “monthly” and “overall”. This leaderboard can keep track of the player’s score too. This ability to share and compare points led both players and live streamers to create an unofficial challenge that required the player to reach at least 3,000 points in-game.
