I really want to like it, but...
I got this game a while ago, but then got rid of it because of the BS with spawns and the controls. I get it again, and it hasn't changed. At all. The bots spawn ridiculously close. Whenever I get a kill, two new bots take up its place. I don't mind fast-paced games, but this is beyond annoying. One time, I had over 50% and was about to make a gigantic gain when a bot literally spawned *inside*, before I could close it off, and killed me. Speaking of which, the bots are outrageously nimble and speedy, plus their control is significantly finer than the players'. They make maneuvers faster than the game lets us and the lag makes it worse. The controls are slow in comparison. At most, I can kill a bot by crossing its path in a simple, straight line—while the bots are allowed to do zig-zags without the game itself slowing them down. And, I get ads, even when I don't want an extra life. Why is there a "no" option, if I'm going to get ads anyway? This game would be so fun without all this. I like it more than any other .io game, for its simplicity and fast-paced action. But among the bots spawning in BS locations, slow controls, and the unnecessary 20-30 second ads, I'd prefer something else.
I'm giving this three stars instead of one because it truly is a fun game. It's addicting and—like I said—simple, plus fast-paced. Servers would be nice, but I don't mind as long as the bots perform better. Please fix this for the next update.
Fun, but eventually not hard enough
Can't express how quickly I became addicted to this game. However my initial love was built on my understanding that there were real players I was competing against, but after learning they were simply bots I was mildly disappointed. Still finding the game fun enough to play while I was bored, I eventually learned the bot habits of greed and gained an understanding how to exploit the bots with simple trickery which is why I'm giving it 3 stars.
Overall this is a VERY fun game and my review comes from months of playing it. The recent additions of challenges were refreshing, but overall simplistic if you already played the game enough. My biggest wish is that there are different playing modes in addition to challenges. Adding multiplayer would be HUGE and I would also love to see easy, medium, hard, and impossible levels of difficulty. This can include different speeds that are experienced in the challenges, OR bigger/smaller maps. Admittedly I've played this game so much I invented my own personal challenges like beating the game without killing a single bot, but wish I had visibility to see what challenges (if any) I had yet to accomplish.
Making this game harder would reinvigorate my interest in this game, but until then I'm getting kinda bored. If you hadn't played this game before and you like simple puzzles, I highly encourage you to try this game!
Great! But the adds are crazy!!
I love this game. I saw my friend playing it and I thought I would try it. I love it!! It is fun and getting new skins is always great. I wish they would have more variety in them. I also think that maybe hiding the ones you didn’t get would make it more fun when you actually get it. Another thing is the adds. I am fine with adds normally, but this game makes me not want it play it. I am fine with watching an add to live for more time but even when you don’t press it, it gives you an add. It is very annoying and I wish it would stop! Another thing I would enjoy is challenges and points. This would make the game have a reason to keep on playing. You could maybe use these points for an extra life or to get a skin. This would be a lot of fun but the points won’t stop you from playing or be the main thing in the game. Some games don’t do this correctly and the games become less fun as you need more points. If they do this in the way I described, people who don’t like points can not mess with them while people who do can use it. Those are a few of my thoughts on the game and I hope you use these to make your game better ( in my opinion ).
* you and they is talking about the app creationists *
I’m addicted to this game! But...
By Cute cone of ice cream
This game is honestly addictive. If you’re looking for a game to help you procrastinate, this is the one. It’s very competitive and simple. Although the game is so much fun, it has many flaws.
1) Although I don’t mind ads (even if they’re very continuous and annoying) I have gotten used to them. Even though I don’t like them, they have taken over the game (literally). During some of the games, I get a ad in the middle of my screen and die. It gets very agitating when that happens and PLEASE FIX THIS.
2. The game was by far better a while ago. They have added challenges and have made it harder to get different ‘characters’. The challenges are OK. But you used to be able to buy characters with “coins” but now you have to complete difficult challenges. I have played 500 games and after I finished 500 games I was supposed to receive a new character. But I didn’t. That has happened multiple times. PLEASE FIX THIS! Please bring back the “coins” so those who play a lot and are good can buy the characters without having to complete ridiculous challenges.
That’s all the complaints I have. There’s more pros then there is cons, but those cons are, in my opinion, major and ABSOLUTELY NEED to be fixed!!!
Fun and Addictive Game but Super Annoying
This game is very addictive but, there are a lot of things that I would like to be fixed to make this game even better. First off, the glitches. I get every game has glitches sometimes, this game has way to many for my liking. Here are four glitches I will talk about. When your game or server is just fine the game pauses while it paused your moving but you can't control your character but when it unpauses either something pops up or you just automatically die. Secondly, why is there ads popping up in the middle of a game causing you to die? 🤷♀️ I know I don't know. We need answers. Third, when you are on your surface, no one's supposed to be able to kill you right? Oh! But guess what's happening. Exactly. And finally about all of the glitches, why when I watch an add to keep going I either automatically die or still start over but in the same server. Done talking about glitches and lets have our last SHORT talk about the stupid amount of ads there are. Every time I die I get a thirty second ad that I always get on other games that I don't ever want to download have already downloaded. Anyway, I hope all of these things get fixed so that this game can as I said be even better.
Thank you for your time
Too many ads
By Review Maker 101
I really like this game. It is very addicting and fun to play. However, when you’re in the middle of a challenge, an add pops up on the side of the screen. It messes with my game because whenever I try to make a move, it clicks in the ad and it messes me up. Every few seconds there is also a random pop up of the ad. I understand that in order to make this app free, there must be ads, but I think they should be very much controlled and better organized. I recommend to add more challenges for there is only 25 and you get done with them quickly. There should be a daily challenge where you win something special that allows you to unlock a new little character. I also recommend there to be a personalized character where you can change the color of one or create one yourself. If these changes are made, this game will definitely be 5 stars. I very much enjoy the different maps and modes to the game and i think that turning that into the actual game with different calm varieties of choices are made to play the game just how you like it. Again, the biggest change that should be made are the uncontrollable ads.
Don’t bother downloading this until they fix these problems.
When I first downloaded it I thought it was going to be the same version as the computer. I was wrong. When I first loaded up the game I enjoyed it. Once I upgraded to my iPhone X it started annoying me with the Poot attempt to try to make it compatible. When you start it up the notch blocks part of the screen which shouldn’t happen. The bar that tells you your best score is blocked. Another complaint is that you always spawn too close to the bots or the bots spawn too close to you. It already happened to me that when I spawned in the bot just so happened to enclose me and made his territory surrounding me which ended killing me since I just spawned in. Another time I spawned in and when I did I killed another bot Instantly. Sometimes when I try to respawn the game freezes and i have to boot it up again. My last complaint is that when I die, I get a option saying if I want to get a second life but if I do I have to watch an ad. Which I don’t mind. But what I do mind is if when I click the button to not get a second life I get an ad immediately after that. This has happened to me four or five times already and is getting annoying. I recommend playing the website version and not this.
Fun game. TOO MANY ADS!!
I’ve had this game for quite some time now and it’s so addictive! Here’s my two complaints: TOO MANY ADS! And I think everyone agrees with me! Second, running into ur own tail! When ever it says free life for watching an ad, I almost always click no, because the ad is always a mini game on final fantasy!!!!! But MOST of the time, i click no, AND AN AD SHOW UP!!!!😡😡🤬🤬😡😡🤬 This makes me very upset! If ads were not as frequent or no ads at all, I would have put five ⭐️. Three stars because the ads are a tremendous problem! And please fix the final fantasy thing always coming up when I want an extra life! Also, I know u guys need money, but PUH LEEZE! Three dollars for all the ads!?!? I mean, it’s kinda understandable for all the ads in the game, but there should be NO ADS at ALL! And when someone covers ur area completely u die. I want an extra life, ad, try to make area from scratch, hit own tail, die!?!?😾 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻 this is also upsetting! Sorry for the long review, but it’s ALL true. Other than the ads and hitting ur own tail, the game is really fun and addicting! I would love it if you took the ads out! Thx bye!
Need to make changes
By Matt Pavliscsak
Let me start by saying I love this game. I usually hate games on iPhone simply because they are too hard to control, but this is super simple and easy to play. There are however, many flaws to this game. First of all, they need to add live action multiplayer, instead of just bots. It would be much more fun playing against real people in real-time. Secondly, the controls need to be improved. The swipe method to turn is great, but incredibly slow. I like to use the directional pad when I play, but they are even slower and less responsive than the swipe. Thirdly, the wall kills you no matter when you turn. The wall should not kill you, it should automatically make you turn. Fourth, we should have different map choices. I like how in the challenges there are some maps with obstacles, or some very small maps, those would be massively entertaining to play multiplayer on. Lastly, there are simply too many bots playing on the map at one time. It is nearly impossible to gain more than 40-50% because your avatar can’t move fast enough to protect your space, and if you go out and get more you’re losing just as much just as fast.

Okay, so, this game is super great. I loved the idea. But, there are a few problems. Here is a list:
1. The game has glitches. Sometimes in the middle of the game I am unable to control my avatar and it just keeps on going in the same direction or the game just “pauses” or stops functioning.
2. I recently learned that the “players” aren’t real people, and that is a bit upsetting. It’s would be a lot more fun if there are real people who have their own strategy and are playing in their own smart way. There is this different feeling you get when you beat a real person rather than when you beat a bot. Please let us all know if it is true that the “players” are bots or not in your next update’s notes.
So, of course, it would be great if you made fixing the glitches a priority, even though they probably already are, and if you could please have us play against real people, that would be awesome! Otherwise, this is a pretty good game. Also, I would like to thank you guys for fixing some major glitching and for removing the box ads.
