Co-developed by Steve Howse and Thorntree Studios, an arcade game resembling the popular mobile and browser hit Agar.io. During the game you are in control of a small snake which grows by eating bright points. Apart from yours, there are other snakes on the map and in order to win, you have to eat what remains of the bigger ones. The only problem is that they die only if they touch other creatures with their heads, so your objective is to maneuver your snake in a way that will make others run into you. This can be achieved with a number of techniques. There is no final purpose to the game, so you can play till the Earth stops turning. Similarly to the aforementioned production by M28 studio, Slither.io features minimalistic visuals. Even though they are simple, they still can give an ample scope for showing your brains and skill.

Another free-to-play game developed by the creator of Agar.io – a minimalistic action game developed for mobile devices and Internet browsers. In contrast to its predecessor, in Diep.io the player doesn’t control a ball, but a small tank in which he fights other players over points. The vehicle can move in all directions and the cannon is controlled independently from the rest of the machine. The gameplay focuses on sending missiles at colorful figures appearing on the map. Destroying them is awarded with experience points used for upgrading the tank with health regeneration, increased projectile speed and greater power. It all becomes especially useful when fighting other players that are present on the same map. Except for obtaining the highest possible score and staying alive for as long as possible, the game doesn’t have any additional objectives. The visuals of Diep.io are minimalistic – the tanks are simply colorful balls with rectangle cannons and the map looks like a piece of paper from a notebook.
Hockey Stars (WWW)
Arcade 19 May 2016
A web-based hockey arcade game, focusing on pvp gameplay. Hockey stars utilizes the free-to-play model with optional microtransactons. Like the previous Miniclip's production, Soccer Stars, Hockey Stars is a simple game inspired by coin football. Two five-person teams are pitted against each other and their task is to put the puck in the opponent's goal. The puck bounces of the edges of the pitch, but can also be controlled by the player, which allows for more precise strikes. The games take place on several pitches located in various parts of the world, and every pitch features different conditions of victory. Each won game earns you new fans, level-ups, and virtual money, which you can use to buy better team members or formations. You can not only play single games, but also participate in tournaments, which can yield you attractive prizes. Hockey Stars features simple but nice 2D graphics, which fit the casual style of the game.
