Outwit your opponent and conquer the largest territory
The name may lead you to believe that Paper.io bears some relation to the Agar.io and Slither.io, but it is actually by an entirely different developer. The only similarity that this one bears to the popular Agar.io and Slither.io is the quest to conquer space by cutting out your enemies.
You begin your journey as a little pixelated-speck which might be a bundle of cash, a tiny unicorn or a police car or any one of a number of characters. You are assigned a small area of the board in your colour and your quest is to expand it by going out into uncharted territory and marking your space. You must always return back and close the loop in order to grow your empire. Each board is occupied by random AIs who work in a similar fashion. If they intercept you before you return to your home base, the game is over. If you do the same to them, their territory disappears and you win a lot of coins. These coins can then be used to buy new playable characters which have interesting animations to go with them.
One fault with Paper.io is that often when you spawn in a new game, there is an AI right at your heels. This results in the game ending even before you start. There are two control options, you can either use buttons or swipe. There is also a paid upgrade which will remove all ads. Another shortcoming of the game is that there is no online multiplayer. It does not take long to figure out the tactics of the AI and you might find yourself hankering for some more complicated gameplay which could easily be provided by another human.
