IO games are on the rise and in this article we will review a few of them. Flaap.io Remember Flappy Bird? That was a gaming app released in May 2013, and which was removed from the App Store and Google Play on February 10, 2014. If you loved that game, you’ll love this – it’s essentially the same, except here you get to laugh at others for failing to flap very far too.
Matheus Valadares’ game is simple. You are a cell. Your mission is to eat smaller cells and food, with the goal of growing bigger and avoiding larger cells that might eat you. Sounds like a simple game, right? It is. And the graphics are equally as simple. So if the game is so simple why did it become so popular?
Spinz.io : Kind of like Agar.io with a fidget spinner. Collecting dots increases your fidget spinner’s speed, allowing you to ram into and eliminate other players. Whirlpools can help launch you at another player or help you get away when someone else is spinning so fast you that you can’t see the fidget spinner shape anymore. It’s definitely fun and addictive but does pander to the now somewhat dead fidget spinner hype. No judgment, feel free to enjoy fidget spinners! And it runs pretty well on iffy internet service. But why play this over Agar.io? See more games at IO Games.
Wilds.io : We can play in different modes such as fort and browars, and we can even train with our friends if we want to. Our avatars are spawned in the wild where we have to defend ourselves against wild creatures. In fort mode, we have to kill the players of the opposite teams. In another mode, you and another player have to fight till one of the players is killed.
Easily one of the most stylish looking games I played through was that of Vanar.io, a cartoonish imagining of what the arcade classic ‘Asteroids’ might have been like if as well as being pelted by asteroids, your spacecraft was also being endlessly being attacked by progressively bigger spaceships, just in case you weren’t finding the former challenging enough. With only the capability to turn and boost in one direction to control your ship and a combination of both shields and missiles required to survive, Vanar.io makes for some fantastically frantic multiplayer space combat.
