Slither Lets Play Thursday
Slither your way to being the biggest snake on the map! Today Kat and Curt played the game Slither, a very popular fun and free game for all to play. Watch as we try to grow into the biggest snake while not being eaten by the hundreds of them lurking on the map.
Slither.io is home to the game, Slither. A snake game with the aim to be the biggest snake on the map and to survive the longest. It is a really fun and simple game that has you hooked the moment you play it. Like the saying a small fish in a big pond, well you're a baby snake on a big map filled with small garden snakes reaching up to large anacondas!
How To Play
Make sure you are on the Slither.io site, without being on there you cannot play the game. You then need to enter in a nickname/username. Once you have done that you have the option to change your snakes skin. This is located at the bottom of the left-hand side of your screen. There are many different skins for you to chose from, there are the flags of countries, colorful ones, characters and many more. Curtis chose a plain red while I chose the British flag.
Once you have selected your skin, click on play. You will see at the bottom right-hand side of the screen is the map, the little arrow is where you are located on the map. The other little dots are all the other players/snakes on the make. The goal is to swallow up all the glowing orbs so that you grow bigger and bigger. If a snake gets destroyed their orbs will glow even more and if you swallow the whole length of that snake, you will grow just about double the size. All the orbs that you find in a long chain, those were snakes that got destroyed.
Another snake will try to destroy you to eat the orbs that you leave behind. The bigger you are, the more you are a target for other snakes. To destroy a snake, get them to go head first into the snake's body, they will the disintegrate and have to start again. Another way you can do that is if you are big enough, circle a smaller snake and close them in. On the top right-hand side of your screen is the leaderboard and all the players, that's where you can see everyone who is playing slither. To move your snake, move your mouse in the direction you want your snake to go. The snake will follow your mouse and the direction you drag it in. To speed up, click and hold on your mouse and drag it in the direction you want your mouse to go.
Overall it is a fun game that we have enjoyed playing, its s free multiplayer game that can be played by anyone. When there are a lot of people playing, the game can lag and sometimes be frustrating, for this reason, we are rating it a 7. Don't be a snake, go check out the game.
