Agar.io is certainly not the most complex game around. The graphics are simplistic at best, and the gameplay couldn’t be more straightforward – you control a small, single cell organism that cruises around the map absorbing other, smaller cells while avoiding larger cells looking to absorb you. At its core, Agar.io is like a much uglier, less sophisticated version of Osmos HD. However, Agar.io offers a couple of tweaks to the gameplay that make it a bit more fun than its counterpart. One, you can split yourself into two cells, and you can also “shoot” bits of yourself to grab onto smaller cells, making gameplay a bit more dynamic. Two, and most important, the game is entirely online with a massive user base. There’s nothing more satisfying than absorbing other frustrated players around the globe. Agar.io is hectic, fast-paced, chaotic, and entirely addictive. This is one of the best time-wasters I’ve ever encountered.
Agar.io is available free at the iTunes Store and the Google Play Store
