19# Agar.io - 2015

Review82Score

The objective of Agar.io is to grow a cell by swallowing both randomly generated pellets, which slightly increase a cell's mass, and smaller cells without being swallowed by larger cells. The goal of the game is to obtain the largest cell; players restart when all of their cells are swallowed by another player. Viruses split cells larger than them into many pieces (16 or less, depending on the mass) and smaller cells can hide underneath a virus for protection against larger cells. Players can split their cell into two, and one of the two evenly divided cells will be flung in the direction of the cursor (a maximum of 16 split cells).
