One Minute Gaming - Agar.io - Blaugust Day 16This week, I've been playing a fun little game called Agar.io. If you remember the old Snake game where you eat dots to grow longer and have to avoid your own tail, it's a little bit like that. You are a blob (for want of a better word!) and you have to move around eating dots that are all over the play area.
This game is available for ios, android and online so be careful - it's easy to get hooked and then get your fix on any device!
Unlike Snake though, you don't grow longer, you just become a bigger blob. You can split your blob to become multiple blobs which means it's easier to collect more dots. That's only a short time though and the other blobs are soon reabsorbed.
There are other blobs on the play area too - avoid the ones which are bigger than you or they will absorb you and it's game over. You can eject some mass to capture blobs smaller than you so if you are small, you need to stay well away from the big blobs or they might shoot and catch you.
It's a fun game to waste a few minutes on here and there but it's not so addicted that I can't put it down. I'd give agar.io a 7 out of 10 - very simple to play but hard to master.
If you have a game you'd like to suggest, you can contact me on Twitter @NevAHAddict or leave a comment below.
So until next time, have fun!
