Agario: The Browser Game That Eats You Up And Your Time
In this simple browser game developed by Reddit user Zeach, and now bought by Miniclip to bring you the game on mobile, Agario sets out to teach you survival of the fittest in a world full of blobs desperate to make it to the leaderboard.
The objective of the game is simple. Eat the smaller blobs to grow in size! Avoid larger blobs is the first rule of thumb. This is easier to do when you are small since you’ll be faster but as you grow, you will not have speed on your size anymore. You should also avoid viruses (big green blobs with spikey edges) that will break down your blob into smaller cells that will get engulfed by larger blobs. Once you reach critical mass, it becomes more important to defend yourself against these bully viruses, but while you’re still small-intermediate in size, you can use them to your advantage to hide from other larger blobs that are out to get you.
You have the ability to split your blob up into smaller parts throughout the game. This is called split-killing and you should use this technique effectively when you are confident that your smaller counter parts are still large enough to engulf smaller opponents. Agario is a strategic game that has gone viral in recent months and it’s easy to see why. The game’s mechanics are easy enough that gameplay can get quite frustrating in the end. The more you play, the more you will master it and the closer you get to the leaderboard, the more tempted you’ll be to keep up with it!
