Ah another io game. I'm certainly not complaining, despite how many of them we've seen in the past. This time, Party.io brings together disparate players and makes them play a modified version of King of the Hill. The modification being that it's a struggle to stay on top, even if you're all alone.
The deal is that you're on a floating platform with a bunch of other players, and you'll want to become to only one left by sheer domination. A big task, but one you can achieve with a bit of gusto.
You will be picking up opponents, and literally flinging them into the abyss. Which is not necessarily difficult, but certainly awkward at times.
What we have here are a bunch of tips to help you settle into Party.io, and how you can come out on top more often than not. Because who doesn't want to win, right?
This game might seem familiar to some others you've seen in the past, but rest assured it has its unique aspects. For one, it's that you will be constantly moving forward, so unless you're attentive, you will throw yourself into the abyss.
You essentially swipe to change your direction, and tap to grab at enemies and pick them up. Once picked up, drag them over to the edge and throw them into oblivion, while avoiding throwing yourself in there. Again, easier said than done, honestly.
There aren't any weapons to worry about, and the only environmental object you should concern yourself with are the barriers on the edge of the world. In some stages the barriers will protect you from death, while in others moving up against them will weaken them, and make you more likely to sacrifice yourself in your battle of attrition.
So the main advice is to watch for anyone coming right for you, and watch out for ledges with broken barriers.
