Slither.io is a lot like Snake but with new twists


works… Slither.io is loosely based on the classic
arcade game Snake. You are a cute, doe-eyed Slither.io is loosely based on the classic
arcade game Snake. You are a cute, doe-eyed Slither.io is loosely based on the classic
arcade game Snake. You are a cute, doe-eyed worm looking for snacks. Maneuver through
the void avoiding crashing into other worms who may cross your path. Gorge yourself with
glowy light to grow and gain points. When you first start, you are small, skinny
little thing which makes you nimble and easy to maneuver. But as you get bigger you grow
in both length and width. The bigger you get, the harder it is to make quick turn or get
out of the way. IF another worm crashed into you, you can
gobble up their life force and saving yourself a ton of work. There are two ways to play: Online against
other players or local against the game’s AI. For both, the gameplay is basically the
same. However, if you are on spotty wifi playing AI is the way to go. Few things I noticed
is that you bump into many more bigger worms when you play online. Also, since you are
against actual human, in the online mode you often find yourself up against smart, strategic
players who will trap you to eat you up. The AI seems to be slightly less aggressive. Now let’s talk controls. There are three
modes. Arrow mode for me was the easiest. You just drag your finger along the screen
to guide your worm. Then there is classic where you tap to change directions. Classic,
definitely requires more patience and skill. It is harder to make quick dodges when other
worms are headed your way. You’re third option is Joystick, which skillwise is somewhere
in between. There is a small grey circle in the bottom right corner that you use as a
touch control in a similar way to a traditional joystick. It’s not as intuitive as arrow
mode, but easier to to get out of a sticky situation. On the customization side of thing, you can
personalize your worm by changing skins. I was pleasantly surprised by all the free character
options. Many other free games make you pay or earn a cooler look, but Slither.io lets
you mix it up with a ton of fun designs from the start. And that’s about it. I personally am not
super into the game, but tons of folks are. So it’s me not you. When I play I think,
this is what being a fish in a fish tank feels like. I am going to stick to traditional Snake,
I am old school like that. Slither.io is a free download on the app store
and Google Play. You can also play online on your desktop at Slither.io.
