If there's one thing that slither.io has proved, it's that the addictive gameplay of Agar.io can be transplanted onto basically anything and it will still be good fun.
It wouldn't be surprising if we saw other developers jumping on the bandwagon, and we've come up with five major games that we think could benefit from taking a leaf out of slither.io's book.
A fairly straightforward one to start off with. After all, what is Agar.io if not simply a Katamari game from a top-down perspective?
Replace the circles with Katamaris and the dots with household objects and the game has basically made itself.
All you need to do is put a tiny green Prince behind the Katamari and you've got the next big mobile hit.
Nintendo has already announced its next couple of mobile games, but there's still room for everyone's favourite little pink ball to make an appearance.
Instead of simply absorbing the dots, you'd need to tap Kirby to suck up any nearby, as well as eat up any other players in the vicinity. It's a troll's paradise!
You could even have the various Kirbies spitting their opponents out across the board, and sell a Meta Knight skin for those who want to look a little cooler.
OK, so this might be a bit of a stretch, but bear with me. After all, attaching the Mario name to a mobile game is guaranteed to draw people in.
It would essentially be the same as slither.io, except you replace the snakes with classic Mario monster Wiggler.
He moves about in a cumbersome fashion, like the snakes in slither.io, and you could even have him turn into his angry red state while dashing.
Remember those weird floating orbs in the award-winning Everybody's Gone to The Rapture? Well now you're one of them!
You float around the board, leaving a trail of holy spirit behind you, and occasionally absorbing souls that won't stop talking in dodgy rural British accents. Emotional? No. Fun? Definitely.
It's been a while since we've heard from the tiny purple dragon Spyro, and what better way to make his comeback than this?
The twist is that the dots are actually sheep from the original game, so you need to set fire to them before you can eat them up. And probably set your fellow players on fire while you're at it.
