Review slither.io

Brandon Girod
7.4Good
It’s Agar.io with Snakes, cool gameplay mashup
Incredibly clunky controls, needs a tutorial
When I first discovered Agar.io, I was consumed by it. I spent the next week playing it and only it. Slither.io for Android is a giant nod to Agar.io, but it also takes a lot of cues, mechanically, from Snake. The biggest question to answer is whether or not this odd mashup actually work?
I’ve been juggling the idea in my mind over and over again, but I can’t really decide if this is more like Agar.io or more like Snake. Maybe it’s equal parts both. It’s a giant multiplayer game where you control a worm. Like Agar.io and Snake, there are pellets you can pick up so that you can grow in size. In order to take down other characters, you need to have your worm create a wall so they run into you.
I’m not a huge fan of this mechanic, though, because if you’re huge, you don’t really get any advantage. Sure, you get more opportunity for others to run into you, but the game doesn’t feel like it has more - or even equal - depth than Agar.io. Even worse, the controls in this game are horrible. Originally, I thought your worm had to follow the craters in the honeycomb background, but then I realized the controls are just horrible and clunky.
Slither.io just doesn’t hold a candle to either of the aforementioned games. Agar.io is addictive and has tons of depth, both psychologically and mechanically. And Snake is just one of the grandfathers of video games. It’ll be tough to match either and this just doesn’t do it.
