Play as a colored cell and strive to dominate the arena in this extremely popular and competitive casual game, Agar.io! Pick a game mode to play and start growing your cell by gulping down as many food pellets or smaller cells as you can. Survive by ejecting mass to move faster or use the mass as a projectile to swallow a fleeing cell whole. If you’re looking for a game that will render any productive time you may have into an unproductive one, Agar.io is definitely the game to play.
To start playing, all you need to do is to input your nickname, choose a server closest to you (to minimize latency issues) and decide whether you want to play as a guest or you would like to log in and save your progress. If you simply want to try the game out, playing as a guest is a great option since it’s convenient and you can quickly get into the action.
However, if you could see yourself playing this for some time and that you want to get some custom skins for your cell, it may be best to just sign up and log in. This is because you’ll be able to earn experience points to level up and accumulate coins to buy any custom skins you want. After all, it’ll just take a few extra minutes of your time.
There are also several game modes that you can choose from prior to entering a game. They include Free-for-all (FFA), Teams, Experimental and Party. Since FFA and Experimental are very similar and so is Teams and Party, basically, the game only has 2 main game modes – solo or team. For team-based modes, each game will contain 3 teams – red, blue, and green.
Naturally, team mode is a lot easier to play because you’ll be able to stick around stronger players of your team. Having other team members around to help you out when you needed them the most isn’t such a bad thing to have either. Though, if you want to challenge yourself, you can dive into the cell-eat-cell world that is the solo modes, FFA and Experimental, instead.
Your main objective in Agar.io is to grow your cell and to survive as long as you can. There are many color food pellets scattered around the arena that your cell can gobble up by simply passing through them. Of course, the larger your cell become, the slower it will move. It can be quite competitive when it comes to grabbing foodstuff for your cells, but the actual challenge of the game is to avoid being eaten yourself... and that is one of the main reasons Agar.io has become “viralized” and so astonishingly popular.
Aside from its fun yet competitive gameplay, the game is also really easy to pick up and the controls are very easy to learn. For example, to move your cell, all you need to do is to move your mouse cursor. However, this merely scratches the surface of this game. You’ll definitely need to know more in order to survive the mayhem in the playing area.
Being a cell, you can also undergo division in this game by pressing the spacebar key. This is a great way for you to lighten the load, so to speak, and to allow your cell – now “cells” – to move a bit faster. You can also use the split cell mass as a projectile of sorts to rapidly move towards a fleeing cell and to gobble it up... much like a frog snagging a fly with the rapid lash of its tongue.
Split cells can be recombined under certain circumstances, but honestly, it can be pretty difficult to do so. Due to this, if you simply need to reduce your cell mass and still keep your cell in its singular form, you can press W to eject some mass. Sometimes, these unowned masses will take a life of its own and start moving around the game. If you’re familiar with the NPCs in MMORPGs, well, these unowned cells are good representations of them. Although rarely found roaming around the playing area, they are usually the easier targets for other players to gobble down.
It can be quite difficult to grow when you’re merely a small blob on the map, thus, the game scattered a bunch of spikes-lined circles around the place for you to hide under. Smaller cells that can fit within the mass of these hiding places will virtually become invisible to other players. Not to mention, larger blobs will not be able to enter the space underneath these hiding circles and so will not be able to eat you up. However, there’s a catch – other cells that are larger than you but are still able to fit within the confines of these circles will be able to literally flush you out of your hiding place. So, you’ll still need to be vigilant of any potential dangers coming your way while you’re hiding underneath an obstacle.
By playing Agar.io, you’ll earn some coins. These coins can then be spent at the shop for various amazing-looking skins. There are 3 types of skins at the moment – premium, veteran or the Care Bears-themed, with skins ranging from showcasing different planets in the solar system to animals, flags and even popular meme faces. If you want to get a slight upper hand in this game, you can buy either a double XP boost or a double starting mass boost too.
Similar to Slither.io, the gaming community in this game is surprisingly robust despite being a much older game. There will always be more than enough players to play the game with, and from what can be seen from the game’s fan sites, forums or even official Facebook page, most players in the community are very generous in sharing strategies, tips and tricks to the newer players.
The graphics in Agar.io are minimalistic, which admittedly are much of an eye-candy. However, some of the cell skins that you can buy are very nicely designed and drawn. There is no sound in this game.
All in all, Agar.io is a very addictive and competitive casual game where players get to duke it out in a minimalistic-looking arena. Use your cell’s ability to eject mass and to divide, and also the elements in the game’s environment to ensure your cell’s survival. It’s a cell-eat-cell world in Agar.io – do you think you have what it takes to dominate the battlefield?
