Several months ago, my friends and I were highly addicted to Slither.io which was a multiplayer online version of snake game. According to me, it was the best .io game till then when I didn’t play the latest .io game Paper.io by the Developer Voodoo. Now I can say this is the best .io ever. Though it took place in the casual gaming industry on the November of last year, still now, it’s one of the most top ranking game. Developers also keep the game upgraded with new additions.
Paper.io is a multiplayer puzzle game with a simple concept of a crazy gameplay where your mission is to claim space on a rectangular white paper board. Here, you are controlling a small square shape character who always keeps moving. At the beginning, you will assign a colourful box with your character. When your character starts its journey, a thin trail will always attach to the box. You have to direct the character to return to the main box claiming some space on the board. When it successfully come back, your claiming space will be added to the box by covering the additional surface with the same colour. Thus you have to block as much as space you can by your own colour. You are always safe in your own box. But, you can move and claim space from others box. Another player can also steal your space. So, you have to be very careful because you have to claim new area and also save your collected space.
The game control is pretty smooth – just slide your finger up, down, left or right on the screen to direct your cute little character. The game rules are also fascinating. For claiming more area, you have to kill other players. You have to touch other player’s trail to destroy them as well as save your own tail. Don’t let touch them your trail and also never touch your own trail, otherwise, you will die. Don’t touch other’s head also; it may kill both of you!
In this game, there is no control on speed, no time constraints and no timing bonuses. You only need to make strong strategies to survive the longest time and to capture the largest area. A leaderboard on the top left of the screen always shows your position which will inspire you to keep playing. When you reached the top place on the leaderboard, you can see a Crown on your characters head! Isn’t it really cool?
This minimalist game looks so colourful because of the characters that every player is controlling from all over the world. There are many cute little characters like – Cakes, Donuts, Different Type Of Fruits, Mud-Smearing Pig, Rainbow-Trailing Unicorn, Sushi, Various Vehicles, A Bundle Of Money, Different Birds, Fishes or Other Creatures, etc. It also features seasonal characters during Christmas, Valentine’s Day, etc. You have to buy these characters by the game Coins. Rather than these, you can play the game with Solid Colours. Lots of eye-catchy solid colours are available which are randomly shuffles for every time you play the game.
To buy avatar characters, you need lots of coins. You will get coins by the overall score of the game. This score counts by the addition of the percentage of your occupying space x 8, the number of players you destroyed x 20, and the number of collected diamonds x 5. You can also purchase the coins by real money.
This soundless addictive game is satisfying the casual gamer’s minds by its simplicity. You can play Paper.io both online and offline. You can play it both on PC and smartphone.
