The description of Paper.io

Paper.io is a game packed full of color. It has a modern-yet-retro feel that has fast become the hallmark of .io games, and the fast-paced action is something worth bragging about. Yet, in this game of conquering your opponent’s territory, there are serious gaffes that could pale your experience.

Paper.io sees you thrown into a non-expanding space with other competitors as you battle to increase the size of your color domain while avoiding being cut off from your own path. As a square moving in any 2D direction, you are to cover as much area of the board as possible while ceding as little space as possible to your opponents. As you move your square around, you leave a trail which connects you to the rest of your color mash. If you do get cut off from this path, you die. If you cut off an opponent’s way, you gain kill points and expand your territory. If you bump into a wall, you die. Your opponents are bots which to some degree kills the possibility of multiplayer game rooms, but also makes it easier to play without the pressure of bandwidth.

While there is some pattern to the way the AI rivals move, it isn’t a fairly predictable feature. Most of it appears random, although with some strategy and a fair amount of good luck, you can make it. Staying safe is a vital game strategy, and you should never stray too far away from your color mash.

The controls are simple and intuitive. Tap the spot on-screen where you want your square to go next. There are no mashups and button combos that you’ll have to make mental notes of.

The visuals on this game are delightful and charming, packing the pure simplicity that players look for in .io games. The game suffers a bug which at times makes the graphics dip, and occasionally you might run into a wall or get your route cut off by an opponent. For the most part, the game looks good and plays really well.

The game is an obvious hit when it comes to replay value, not only because of the number of levels it offers but also because of how simple yet unpredictable it is. Occasional glitches do take away some of the fun, and there’s plenty of ads to make blowing a gasket a possibility. Having an ad appear right before you spawn can cost you precious life and territory. It is one of the most fun games you’ll ever play, though.

Pros

  • Simple graphics;
  • Intuitive controls yet quite unpredictable outcomes;
  • Fun mechanics to watch.

Cons  

  • The game has intrusive ads which often affect gameplay.

Great

Paper.io is one of the best games that you’ll ever play on a mobile device. The biggest issue with this game is the ads, which kill spawns and make you lose valuable points and lives. Without the ads, the game plays pretty nicely. The game is vibrant with color and movement, keeping you potentially engaged for hours, while the mechanics are quite simple that you won’t need a learning curve. Ultimately, there are a lot of gold coins which you can use for customization, but the bragging rights fall on the one who steals the most territory.  ​​​
