Welcome to gulper.io, a modern mix of the classic snake and Tron lightcycles games, but against real players this time. It runs directly in your browser, so you don’t need to download anything — just enter your nickname and play! In this game you control a slithering snake, or worm, or whatever you call it; your goal is to collect as much energy as possible and don’t let others stop you! Avoid collisions, be smart with your strategy, team with other players, and make your way to the top of the global leaderboard!
The controls are the following: to change the movement direction and hold the or key to gain a speed boost. While you are accelerated your length decreases gradually, and so does your score.The game is also adapted for playing on touch-screen devices: your finger to move around, and anywhere with another finger to accelerate.
You can join or create a particular room by entering its name in the Nickname input field after the nickname itself and the @ symbol (for example, ). If the specified room exists on the automatically chosen game server, and the room is not full yet, you’ll join it.There are two kinds of rooms: public and private. Public rooms are created automatically, and player join them when they enter nickname only.Players can create private rooms to play with their friends by entering the same room name after the @ symbol. If enough players attempt to join a private room during certain time interval, the private room will be created and the waiting players will join it; otherwise, they will automatically join one of the public rooms (the same one) on the game server.
There is a Settings menu, that can be opened by clicking the gearwheel button in the top right corner of the screen. The menu allows to tweak certain options, such as showing/hiding leaderboard, player nicknames and minimap. There are also Graphics and Framerate switches, that may help to achieve smoother gameplay on low-end devices. And finally, for mobile devices, you can choose between two control schemes, joystick and arrow.
