Editors' Review

Slither.io is one of the most popular arcade-style games. You start off as a small snake slithering around a vast space, along with other players. The main goal is to become the biggest snake.

Consume small light pellets to get bigger and avoid crashing into other snakes. If your head touches other players' creatures, you will explode; but the same goes for the other players. If you play it right and make them run into you, you can get the pellets they left behind after dying and become even bigger.


Two game modes: You can play either online against other players or local against the AI.

Wide variety of skins: Personalize your snake's looks by changing skins or building one from scratch via the "Build a Slither" option.

Different control modes: There are three control modes to choose from: Arrow mode, where you drag your finger along the screen to navigate, Classic mode, where you tap to change directions, and Joystick mode, where you use a small gray circle on the bottom-left corner like a traditional joystick.


Lag issues: While playing in multiplayer mode you can experience lags in response time and other general glitches.

Bottom Line

Slither.io is a fun and addictive game that you can play against other people online or versus AI. It features three different control modes, as well as a wide variety of skins to choose from. But lag issues can arise when playing against other players, even on a good Internet connection.
