There is certainly no shortage of games in the App Store and finding one that scratches your gaming itch can be a real challenge.
With that in mind, if you’re looking for a fun game that can be played without a lot of prep, say while you’re waiting for the bus or your morning bagel, look no further than slither.io.
slither.io is a simple game that’s challenging, lots of fun, and you can play it anytime and anywhere.
It is a well-thought and perfectly executed action game that is inspired by snake and snake movements, which maybe reminds a little of the popular Nokia game that was a huge hit in the early 2000s.
However, slither.io, from Steve Howse, is a completely different gameplay and concept, let’s see what you can expect from it.
Gameplay and concept
The gameplay of slither.io is really interesting. That is basically it makes the game to standout. In order to be successful in the game you need to maintain your snake and avoid all other snakes.
You’ll try to avoid hitting other snakes and you will play against other players from around the globe.
The gameplay and concept are pretty cool and the fact that the game is multiplayer makes it even more interesting. The graphics and the sound are creative and smartly implemented, they are actually making the game quite entertaining.
As we said, this a multiplayer game. You play against other players from around the globe. Your snake size will change as you enjoy the game. However, the head is only important so you will have chance of beating other players even if you are small. When you destroy other snake/player, you can collect and eat their remains.
Another interesting feature of slither.io is the fact that each day a biggest snake in the world is achieved. This is an additional cool challenge that is displayed on each player as message. Try and create the biggest snake so the other players around the globe can see your achievement.
Graphics and Sound Effects
The graphics is well-executed. The snakes look cool and entertaining. They can change shape and the shapes change with great animations. The sound effects are in tone with the game and they are also smartly implemented. They are not too emphasized which creates great atmosphere for playing.
Overall the game performance can use improvement but as it is it’s satisfactory, although not perfect. The few glitches we experienced while playing this game in the last week are the only flaw of the game. However, the game is mostly really stable and smooth.
The interesting additional features like the fact that you can also destroy other players and the ‘biggest snake of the day’ feature are making slither.io stand out from the competition.
slither.io requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
