Despite having a middling 3.5 star rating on the App Store, Slither.io has routinely unseated Snapchat as the No. 1 free app in the App Store since launching earlier this month.
Curious to see what all the buzz was about, I decided to give the game a try, and after only a couple of days I completely understand why everyone is hooked.
There’s a lot going on in this simple-looking package, and despite running into some technical hiccups — the game can lag heavily at times — I doubt Slither.io will be leaving my home screen anytime soon.
In addition to explaining why the game is so entertaining, I’ve also laid out my favourite technique for taking down opponents so you can hit the ground running.
