Top 5 Cool & Interesting io Games

Have you ever played (or heard about) Agar.io or Slither.io? If you did, you know these are fun, easy-to-play games that can be extremely useful if you’re trapped in a bus/plane/train for a few hours with nothing better to do.

The games known under the general moniker io games are nothing else but online games registered to the .io domain. These are free to play and quite interesting, which is why the extension (which was first registered in 1997) is so popular nowadays. In reality, most people see this domain as being reserved for gamers.

So, if you’ve never ventured to play or even browse through an io game, I recommend catching up as soon as possible – you won’t be sorry! Also, to get you started, here are five of the most enticing online games registered to the io domain.

Agar.io                                                                                    


The game is extremely simple and highly addictive, which is why since it was launched in 2015, it became more and more popular among gamers everywhere.  The game only has one main rule: eat or be eaten.

The gameplay is as basic as it goes as you have to guide a blob through a series of colored cells, which your blob will eat. However, you can’t eat blobs that are bigger than you and you have to consume a certain number of cells in order to grow. Furthermore, there are other players that can eat you and viruses that can split your blob into smaller pieces.

While the description of Agar.io may not be that interesting, the action is addictive to say the least, so you should try it!

Slither.io


Did you ever play Snake when you were a child? Or maybe as an adult on an early model Nokia phone? Well, Slither.io is a modern version of the old Snake game, with a better interface, some new rules, and an interesting gameplay that once it gets you hooked, it will keep you going for hours.

The idea is the same: navigate the surroundings and eat as many tiny dots as possible in order to get big. However, in Slither.io, you also have to face other players and dodge their attacks.

Overall, the game is simple and fun which is what makes it a fantastic way to kill some time.


Slope


The Slope game first impresses with the Tron-like graphics and music, but it keeps you hooked with the adventure of driving a ball on all sorts of slippery slopes. The game tests your reflexes and keeps users on their toes at all times, with all sorts of obstacles that make moving forward more challenging.

While it may be a bit frustrating at first, in time you’ll learn to think ahead and assess the situation before anything could damage your ball.


Flaap.io


I’m sure you’re already thinking about the notorious Flappy Bird game, and this one is just like that, but with some improvements. For instance, you’re not alone in the game – you get to see others fail miserably at guiding the disobedient bird through pipes (the game is online and allows multiplayer mode). 

Another cool thing is that you can challenge some friends to a round of flying badly, and finally, the bird changes through levels, becoming more erratic towards the end. Overall, the experience is fun, but it can also be frustrating.


Mope.io


The last game on our list (but not the least interesting), is a depiction of the food chain evolution. Each player has to start small (a mouse for instance) and learn how to grow by searching for food and staying away from predators. If you’re clever and cunning enough, you might just end up as a huge, fire-breathing dragon!

Editor's note - I don't think my kids would forgive me for not posting about this particular game, so...


20th June 2018, London, England – Independent game developer No Yetis Allowed today announced that its new mobile game Peter Rabbit: Let’s Go! is now available for download on The App Store and Google Play.

The app has been developed in association with Penguin Ventures (part of Penguin Random House), brand owners for Peter Rabbit and brokered by Silvergate Media, licensing agent for Peter Rabbit animation on behalf of Penguin Ventures.

In the game, children join Peter and his friends Benjamin and Lily in their search for the pages of Peter’s dad’s lost journal. Along the way, children can explore a multitude of iconic landmarks and locations including Mr McGregor’s Garden, Mr Tod’s house, and Peter Rabbit’s home. Interactive activities include fun spelling games, music tasks, number challenges and creative picture colouring for hours of endless entertainment. Games include:
  • Vegetable raids in Mr McGregor’s garden

  • Ladybird hunting (watch out for the bees!)

Peter Rabbit: Let’s Go! aims to give fans of the Peter Rabbit TV series the most authentic experience possible. This includes the use of lifelike animations and stunning high-quality 3D graphics that mirror the art style of the hit TV show, as well as the use of the original voice talent, bringing the personality of each character to life. Players can also tap and swipe characters to trigger dialogue options and animations – or tickle them just for fun!

Peter Rabbit: Let’s Go! features no in-app purchases or adverts, meaning parents can let their child play without the fear of additional payments. Plenty of additional content is planned post-launch, including mini-games such as Mr Bouncer’s target practice and more.
