2016 video game
Slither.io[a] is a multiplayer online video game available for iOS, Android, and web browsers, developed by Steve Howse. Players control an avatar resembling a worm, which consumes multicolored pellets, both from other players and ones that naturally spawn on the map in the game, to grow in size. The objective of the game is to grow the longest worm in the server. Slither.io is similar in concept to the popular 2015 web game Agar.io and is reminiscent of the classic arcade game Snake.
The game grew in popularity following its promotion among several prominent YouTube users such as PewDiePie, and topped the App Store shortly after its release. Slither.io's browser version was ranked by Alexa as one of the 1,000 most visited sites by July 2016, while the iOS version ranked first in the most downloaded apps on the App Store. A mobile version of the game for Android was released on March 27, 2016. The reception of the game was positive, with reviewers praising its appearance and customization but criticizing it for its low replay value and the high price users must pay to remove advertisements.
The objective of the game is to control a worm around a wide area and eat pellets, defeating and consuming other players to gain mass to grow the largest and longest in the game. Once players are spawned into the virtual world, their avatar remains in constant motion. If the player's worm's head collides into a part of another worm, the player will die. The defeated avatar's body turns into bright, shining pellets for other players to consume., equivalent to the amount of mass it took for the defeated avatar to get that long. These pellets that remain from "death" of an avatar will correspond to the color of the avatar itself, and are both brighter and bigger than "normal" pellets, which spawn naturally throughout the world. Normal pellets do not give as much mass as pellets dropped from other worms. "Chase" pellets will appear individually in various places of the world, and when eaten, give a greater amount of mass than pellets dropped by other worms. Chase pellets avoid worms and flee when they draw near. Chase pellets can be obtained by boosting.
By pressing and holding the space bar or left/right mouse button (on mobile, double-tapping the touchscreen), the player can use their boost, which causes the avatar to speed up. When the button (or, on mobile, the finger on the touchscreen) is released, the worm will stop using its boost. When a player uses their boost, the worm loses some mass, causing the worm's size to shrink slightly, with the mass that is lost from the boost appearing as a line of small pellets where the boost was used. The mass lost can be regained by consuming the pellets. Similar to pellets dropped from defeated avatars, the boost pellets correspond to the color of the avatar. The boost feature is useful to outmaneuver and defeat opponents. A common strategy that is used by players to defeat opponents is of the player's avatar coiling around the opponent's in a loop, until the opponent, trapped in the loop, crashes into the player.
There is a border that confines avatars within the circular game board. If a worm hits the border, the player automatically dies without turning into pellets. On each server, leaderboards are displayed at the top right, showing the top ten players with worms that have the most mass out of all the other worms in the entire server.
There are 16 default skins, each one a different solid color along with multiple repeating patterns.[b] The colors are randomly chosen when the player joins the server. Players can choose to customize their worm's appearances using custom skins with unique designs including different countries' flags, as well as skins with motifs and colors representing well-known YouTubers, such as Jacksepticeye, Jelly and PewDiePie. Or, the player may choose to create their own skin, with a tool known as "Build a Slither", which shows the different colors that an avatar can be made of, that can be placed on the worm upon clicking. Previously, in order to unlock custom skins in browser mode, players were forced to share the game on Twitter or Facebook using the external links found on the website. By June 2016, the ability to add skins was also added to the iOS and Android versions.
According to game creator Steven Howse, he was inspired to create the game while he was experiencing financial problems. As a result of these financial issues, he had to move from Minneapolis to Michigan, where he realized the popularity of Agar.io. He had long wanted to create an online multiplayer game, but the only option for the development at the time was in Adobe Flash, and not wanting to use this method, he gave up the idea for a while. Howse finally created the game when he realized that WebSocket, a low-latency protocol supported by most major browsers, was sufficient and stable enough to run an HTML game similar to other games such as Agar.io. The most difficult part of the development was in making each server stable enough to handle 600 players at a time. Howse struggled to find space on servers with enough space in regions where there was more demand and tried to avoid cloud services like Amazon Web Services, owing to the high cost that these services would incur based on the amount of bandwidth used.
After six months of development, Slither.io was released for browsers and iOS on March 25, 2016, with servers supporting up to 500 players. Two days after the iOS/browser versions' release, an Android version was made available by Lowtech Studios. The only way Howse could make revenue was to display advertising in the app after the player's worm died; this option could be removed for US$3.99. He chose not to sell virtual currency or power-ups so that those who paid would not have an advantage over players who did not. As there was no money to advertise for the game, the only way to promote the game was the various let's plays by players on YouTube, including PewDiePie, who had more than 47 million subscribers at the time. The success of the game would cause Raw Thrills to develop an arcade version a few years later.
In the weeks following the release, Howse worked on updates to stabilize the game and provide a better experience for players. In addition, he plans to add new features, such as a "friendly mode" that allows people to set up teams, and a way for the player to choose a server to play on. Howse said that two major gaming companies had approached him to buy Slither.io. He had considered the idea, since he felt that it was stressful to maintain the game.
Soon after release, Slither.io reached the top of the App Store sales charts in the free software category in several regions, including the United States and the United Kingdom. By the end of 2016, Slither.io had become Google's most searched video game of the year in the United States.
Patricia Hernandez of Kotaku said that the game's low barriers to entry and similarity to Agar.io explained Slither.io's popularity. She noted the game's fast pace.Boing Boing compared the game's core mechanic to that of the 2009 game Osmos. Brandt Ran, writing for Business Insider, said that "despite running into some technical hiccups—the game can lag heavily at times—I doubt Slither.io will be leaving my home screen anytime soon." Harry Slater, writing for Pocket Gamer, defined the game as "interesting"; the gameplay as a "compulsive experience"; and the structure as simple and similar to Agar.io, although it did not have a large replay value.TechCrunch's Felicia Williams praised the designs, getting "pleasantly surprised" with the variety of skins for customization. Lian Amaris of Gamezebo found the game to be "far more interesting than Agar.io" because it involved "an ever-growing languid body rather than just a flat circle," and praised "the dark environment with neon worms," which gave the game a "retro arcade feel." Amaris also compared the concept of Slither.io to that of Agar.io and stated that Slither.io was reminiscent of the classic arcade game Snake.
Shortly after the release of the mobile versions, the game was in first place in the ranking of games of the App Store. Despite Slither.io's popularity, it received mixed reviews. Scottie Rowland of Android Guys praised the gameplay and graphics, however criticized the ads that pop up on the screen after the end of the game, calling them "extremely annoying" and finding the payment to remove them "a bit pricey."
By July 2016, the browser version's website was ranked by Alexa as the 250th most visited site worldwide, but then experienced a decline in popularity, dropping below 1,000 by October 2016 before remaining mostly constant at approximately 1,700 by January 2017. In April 2017, Slither.io's global rank then started declining further, reaching 2,800 by September 2017. By that same period, the game had already been downloaded more than 68 million times in mobile applications and played more than 67 million times in browsers, generating a daily income of US$100,000 for Howse.

Slither.io is a fun arcade game for Android mobile devices where you aim to outsmart other players and create the longest snake that no one can beat. Download Slither.io from Google Play and become a true snake champion!
Slither.io game graphics quality in the game is colorful and generally pleasing to the eye; however, it tends to get blurry on less powerful or older devices, so you might want to set it at a lower level to reduce lags. Higher resolution graphics are usually preferable for speed plays where the gameplay is fast and intense.
Slither.io gameplay will feel familiar to those who have played the classic Snake hit: you start by being put somewhere in the middle of the map, and you move around the area trying to be the first to reach energy orbs, which are the remains of the less successful rivals. The game is not just about collecting prizes to grow in size; you need Slither.io download and be careful and smart to avoid running into other snakes, for that will mean game over for you. The game will challenge you to use your strategic planning skills: find a way to get rid of your competitors by entrapping and cutting them off, making them run into you or other snakes. Use boosts to make your snake slither around the screen faster, but remember that everything comes with a price – boosting your speed will cost you a portion of your snake’s length. Various neat power-ups like the temporary invisibility or limited-time shield will make the game even more fun.
The game runs smoothly on mobile devices, and its control scheme is very straightforward. To play Slither.io just place your finger anywhere on the screen to make your snake move there, swipe lightly, and the snake will eat orbs that come its way, double-tap and hold the snake to increase its speed temporarily. Occasional lags can negatively affect the accuracy of your controls, but they are rare and normally do not bother players much.
Replay Value 4/5
The competitive nature of Slither.io free play is what makes it so successful and replayable. The game will hook you up in no time and keep you addicted to it forever. Multiple online Slither.io reviews show that it is equally popular among kids and adult players who spend long hours trying to build the longest snake and take down as many rivals as possible. The only aspect of this game that can alienate players is the insane amount of ads, some of which are suggestive.
The Bottom Line
Slither.io unblocked has been improved greatly and now features bigger maps, new and more exciting power-ups. Another distinct and cool advantage of the game is that you can compete against other online players who are just as ambitious as you and are determined not to let you win that easily.

Jul 8th, 2019Older versions
The gameplay and concept for slither.io are very similar to Agar.io and other titles from the same genre, but there is one fundamental difference. In slither.io you'll always get the chance to defeat any of your enemies, regardless of their size or yours. All you have to do is get the other worm to butt heads with your worm's body.
When a worm is defeated, the rest of the worms get to eat it to become bigger. That's why a good strategy is to follow other bigger worms while waiting for someone else to defeat them. That way you can eat them and size up. Yup, just like a vulture!
slither.io is a game that's got a very fun concept and some technical issues. The game is basically silent, as it doesn't have a soundtrack. Plus, the controls aren't nearly as good as they could be.
Android 2.3 or higher required.
