Surprise surprise! There’s yet another new .IO game out in the wild. And it’s pretty darn good too. So good, in fact, that it has the potential to kick its competitors like Slither.io and Wormax.io right in the nuts. Ouch! The game’s called Limax.io and it is essentially just like any other snake type IO game. The only difference is that instead of snakes, you’re crawling around as a slug. LimaxIO has been around for about 4 months and has since then gained 600 Twitter followers, and around 7,000 likes on Facebook.
What is Limax.io?
Limax.io is a browser based multi-player game similar to Slither.io. Except instead of growing your snake, you get to crawl around the arena as a slug and destroy your enemies.
How to move in Limax.io?
In order to move around the area all you have to do is point your mouse cursor towards the direction you want to go. Your slug will then move towards that direction.
Because the slugs are moving around considerably faster than in other similar games, you have to be ready for everything at all times. It’s a fast-paced game in which you will need to have good reflexes.
Main difference between Slither.io
Another major difference between these two games has to do with the way you can kill your foes. In Slither.io you have to get the other snake to crash into you. However in Limax.io you can kill other players by having them crash into the leftover mass that gets released as you accelerate forward (left mouse button).
How to kill other players effectively?
To kill other slugs in the game, all you have to do is make them crash into your leftover mass. In other words you need to:
- Pick your unsuspecting target
- Wait for the right moment…
- Quickly dart in front of them, cutting off their path using the turbo boost
When you do this right you can kill pretty much anyone. And it doesn’t matter how much mass the other guy has either!
Eat food to accelerate
In order to actually perform the trick I just mentioned, you need to have some mass to begin with.
You can easily gain more mass when you eat bits of glowing food scattered around the world.
The biggest piece of food will add 7 points to your overall score.
Watch out for the little ones!
As you gain more mass and kills your slug will grow bigger. But like in many other .IO games, the bigger you are, the slower you become.
And this, of course, will make you vulnerable to an attack. Especially when the puniest of all the slugs comes near and turbo boosts all over you.
Be careful out there. It’s a cruel world.
