This one seems to have come out of nowhere, and is not as big as some of the other games on this list. But it’s definitely climbing in popularity, and there’s good reason for that. bonkio is a physics-based .io game pitting you and up to eight other players against one another in the struggle to stay on the map. You start off bouncing, and if you’re not lucky you’re going to bounce right off.
Bouncing, balancing, and controlling your weight is fun enough, but a huge part of the draw of Bonk.io is its map editor. The community has come up with a nearly endless array of maps to play on, and it’s easy to make your own. Part of the fun really lies in the map editor.
The game itself is as simple as it gets, but it does take practice to learn to control yourself — and with so many maps on rotation there’s rarely a dull moment. Matches are fast and you find yourself going from one to the next without even thinking about it.
Bonk.io is one of the more original Little Big Snake to get popular over the past few months, and it’s easy to see why.
