What is Slytherio?

Slytherio is a game that can be played through a web browser or through an Android or iOS app. You don't even need to register to start playing, making it one of the better no-signup websites for daily use. Enter your nickname and you are ready to begin.

The objective is to play as a snake in the game and grow as long as possible. To grow, you need to eat the orbs that are scattered around you.

The orbs range in size from small dots to large glowing orbs. The larger the orb, the more important it is in growing taller.

How is a Slither different from a Snake?

The biggest difference between Slither and Snake is the map. It is a large (almost infinite) map, so you will never crash into walls.

Also, you can loop back and hit your head anywhere on your body and not die. That was one of the dangers of snakes after they grew up enough .

In Slytherio, the only way to die is if you collide with another player's snake body .

Another major difference is that Slytherio has no power-ups that affect speed or size or give temporary invincibility. The game is simplified, and that is half the charm.

How to play Slytherio

Gameplay in Slytherio is simple. Start with where you want to play.

If you play on a computer, you will need to use a mouse or trackpad. The snake will keep the cursor in place. Click and hold the left mouse button to activate the booster. This will allow you to move faster for a while.

The phone or tablet has three control options

  • Arrow mode: The arrow acts like a cursor and you must point your finger where you want the snake to move.
  • Classic mode: Tap anywhere on the screen and the snake will move in that direction.
  • Joystick Mode: This is the mode that most closely resembles mouse-like movement, where you control the joypad in the corner with your thumb.

In all three modes of the phone or tablet, you can switch between left- or right-handed mode of control. There is also a second button to activate the booster.

Note: Boosters consume orbs from the body, so snakes are shorter than before. It must be used strategically. When the booster is activated, the snake will show it with a storybook glow/glow.

Map or radar

In one corner you will see a radar or map of the entire field you are in. The big dot is you and the small dots are other players. Based on that and your current size, you must determine which areas to go to and which areas to avoid.

Length, Rank and Leaderboard

In another corner you will see the leaderboard of the biggest player currently on the map. in the third corner you will see your current length and rank in the map. At a glance, you can see which area you should go to. Generally speaking, the biggest players go to the center of the map, so plan your moves accordingly.

Custom Skins

The mobile app allows you to change the appearance of your snake for free. There are many cool skins to choose from.

In the browser, you'll need to share the Slytherin link on your social network to unlock the different custom skins.

The skins do not give you any special powers, just a different look. It's just a matter of looks, so think twice before logging in with your social accounts.

Best Slytherin Tips, Tricks, and Hacks

Now that you know the objective and how to control the snakes, let's move on to the fun part: playing and dominating in Slytherin. These are some tricks and strategies that other players use, but knowing them in advance will help you do well.

Beginner level: stay close to the big snake.

When you are small, try to find a snake much larger than you. Then move near the center or tail of that snake. Each time that snake dies, it will swoop down and devour all the tasty orbs it leaves behind.

Be careful with this strategy, as many others have done the same thing. You may find yourself in a fight with another snake or facing an enemy that wants to kill you.

Beginners: Dash and Dine

If you and another snake are moving in the same direction, use their boosters to dash in. As soon as you have enough of a lead, turn sharply toward them and let them crash into you.

This is a little hard to figure out at first, but use the hexagonal background map to estimate space. Once you dash, the number of hexagons between you and your opponent is how far ahead you need to go before making a turn.

Intermediate: Wrap Around the Orb and Eat

The coil is the most effective maneuver you need to master in Slytherin. Practice how to "capture" an area surrounded by your body by coiling it around yourself or your tail so you don't die from hitting it.

If you find a bunch of orbs, especially those left by larger snakes, do not eat them unnecessarily. Try wrapping it around them first. This way you can "capture" this many orbs and slowly devour them .

Advanced: Wrapping Around a Small Snake

The most popular strategy in Slytherin is to wrap yourself around a small snake and surround it completely. This way, at some point they will have no choice but to bump into you!

If the first coil is much larger than the snake inside, your opponent will have enough space to move around . You must carefully draw a small circle around your body and restrain your opponent until they collide with you.

The hard part: getting out of the coil.

This is the most difficult of the various tricks you need to master in Slytherin. But you must master it. So what do you do when the enemy coils around you?

The first hack is to create your own coil within the coil and follow that path over and over. You are basically running circles around yourself and it is a game of which one runs out of patience first.

The second hack requires pinpoint accuracy, lots of practice, and perhaps a little luck. You need to time your dashes accurately, as shown in the Reddit thread above.
