Agar.io


Agar.io is a massively multiplayer action game developed by Matheus Valadares. Players control a cell in a map representing a petri dish; the goal is to gain as much mass as possible by swallowing smaller cells without being swallowed by bigger ones.The name Agar.io comes from the substance agar, used to culture bacteria.

Initially advertised on 28 April 2015 on 4chan as a browser game, Agar.io was a quick success; the Agar.io website (for the browser version) was ranked by Alexa as one of the 1,000 most visited websites, and the mobile versions were downloaded more than ten million times during its first week. Reception of the game was positive; it received particular praise for its simplicity, competition, and mechanics; while some disliked its repetitiveness. A downloadable Steam version was planned and announced on 3 May 2015, and the mobile version of Agar.io for iOS and Android was released on 8 July 2015 by Miniclip.
