If you haven’t yet played the addicting Agar.io, then you must get on it. The game itself is straightforward, you begin as a small cell and your goal is to gain as much mass as possible without being absorbed by another cell. After you’ve gained a lot of mass, you can split and control more than one cell but, in the end, your most important mission is to survive. The game also includes features like custom skins; these will give you a standout look against other players and make the game just that more fun.

This game is one of the internet’s beloved games, Linerider, a game in which you draw lines so that the character of the game (Bosh) can slide. Boštjan Čadež, the author of the game, went on to describe Linerider as more of a toy, than a game as it does not include goals or any score. However, in my opinion, it is still highly fun and exciting to play around with different scenarios.
