The biggest of them all, Agar.io is an edible or edible cell survival game that promotes viral behavior beyond the agar medium of a petri meal, hence the name.
Players start small, drink a map and eat food to get the size. Eventually, you grow big enough to cover other player’s cells, leading to a deadly cat-and-mouse game as you try to attract other cells to hold your power while protecting large swarms of players that could cover you.
Slither.io finds inspiration in the old snake game, as players swing around the map eating food engines to grow in size and points. Going forward is the nature of the game here, as players are eliminated when their snake’s head collides with another snake’s body, resulting in players suddenly changing or folding to catch and eliminate the unsuspecting.
Diep.io is another classic game, this time with players controlling tanks, destroying obstacles and enemy tanks to collect points and upgrade their equipment. A well-integrated development program allows you to dress your tank the way you like, allowing you to build floods of hellfire, quick attackers, or powerful shooters.
Gats.io takes the military shooter to the surface, as players select weapons and armor and hunt each other carefully in a solid line of obstacles and roles. Each weapon brings its own pros and cons, and players will have to balance the movement and protect the arms trade or their shortcomings.
Brutal.io lives up to its name as players compete for the giant spinning ball of death. Starting with a small morningstar-like ball inserted into your player, you’ll throw a map to collect food, gradually increase the size of your death ball, which you can add to other players, using a combination of spin, editing, and more than a little dumb luck.
