Perhaps you've never heard of Agar.io and have a long list of accomplishments to your credit. Season 4 of House of Cards features Agar.io as one of Frank Underwood's iconic video game stress relievers. In Turkey, it was also employed as a tool in a political movement during the 2015 election. I hesitate to call the game a time-waster because, despite how obsessed I am, it is actually rather fun, but it falls into that category. Check out our Agar.io review to see what we thought of the game.
Agar.io is one of the most famous early IO Games. The name tells the whole thing. Agar.io is named after agar, which is a jelly-like substance made from algae and used to culture bacteria. You're a single-celled microbe living in a petri dish full of other microorganisms. Other bacteria are powered by other players, while certain bacteria are automagically populated.
In April of 2015, a 19-year-old Brazilian developer named Matheus Valadares created Agar.io. He debuted the unidentified game on 4chan and subsequently adopted Agar.io when an anonymous user suggested it because all of the other apparent names were already used. Agar.io was greenlit on Steam a week after the announcement, and Miniclip eventually launched it as a free-to-play mobile game.
There you are, a solitary little microbe attempting to grow mass in order to escape becoming a meal for another bacteria. As you gain mass, you become larger, which causes you to travel slower and slower, and finally, you will begin to lose mass. You can split your bacteria into two cells if it reaches a mass of 35 and has up to 16 split cells. As the separated cells accumulate mass, they will recombine to form a single mass.
When larger bacterium masses flow through the petri dish (map), viruses positioned throughout the dish break them up. The virus can be used by smaller bacteria to conceal from the larger mass bacteria. Players can use the virus by feeding it some mass, which will cause the virus to reproduce and transmit a copy of itself in the opposite direction as the mass.
Players earn coins and experience as they spend more time and get better at eating without being eaten, which helps them progress to higher levels. Higher levels unlock new skins for the bacterium, which you can purchase with the coins you've earned.
In-app purchases for extra cash, skins, starting mass, and XP enhancements are available for those willing to spend money on winning. Coins can be purchased with real money and range at price from $1.99 for 1,200 coins to $99.99 for 125,000 coins. Skins are exclusively available for purchase with money and come in a range of faces, planets, animals, hot dogs, and other brightly colored images. For an hour, a double beginning mass will cost you 290 coins, and for 24 hours, it will cost you 790 coins. For one hour, the triple beginning mass is 490 pounds, and for 24 hours, it is 990 pounds. A double XP increase costs 290 coins per hour and 790 coins per day, while a triple XP boost costs 490 coins per hour and 990 coins per day. Coins can be gained for free by watching advertising and downloading other sponsored apps, as well as by collecting 20 per hour.
Nothing! In a petri dish, there is no sound as you consume and are inevitably consumed by bacteria. No one chews with their lips open in this establishment.
Agar.io is a massive multiplayer online game (MMOG) with four different game modes: Free For All, Teams, Experimental, and Party. Players are divided into regions and compete against (or alongside) tens of thousands of others.
It's a simple game, but the competitiveness is palpable, so keep an eye out for Agar.io if you're even somewhat sensitive to that kind of attraction in a game. When you've had enough of the monotony, you'll be able to exit the game and resume your daily routine. Until your desire to become the WORLD'S BIGGEST BACTERIA overcomes you and you have no choice but to complete the goal. While there is a mobile version, controlling your cells is significantly easier with the internet version. Agar.io is available on Google Play, iTunes, Facebook, and as a simple browser game.
