About Slither.io

Slither.io is an awesome online game, that controls a snake, and feeds it glowing orbs to grow bigger. Your main goal is to grow to be the longest worm in the arena and eliminate every other participant. The game is over if your snake explodes if its head touches any portion of another snake.

When a worm passes away, its body transforms into the shiny pellets (orbs) it had before passing away. Pellets left behind by dead worms can be consumed by players to increase their growth. Compared to regular pellets, these pellets provide additional bulk.

Left-clicking or double-tapping the screen will accelerate it; releasing the button will turn off boost. However, your snake will lose some mass and some of its size when you utilize the boost. Where you employ the boost, a line of pellets will represent the mass lost from the boost. Additionally, by eating the pellets, players can recover any lost mass.

Be the last person to remain!
