This month, Daisy is about to eat as much human flesh as she possibly can! What?! What has happened to dear grandma Daisy?! No, don’t worry, ladies and gentlemen, Daisy has not added cannibalism to her list of hobbies; she just found a new game: Piranh.io! It’s a free game, so why not give it a try, right?
I think it's about time you all got acquainted with this extremely funny game. Just believe me when I tell you that it’s a hoot! You are a piranha, but not just any piranha. No, no, you can set the shape and the color of your predator fish and even give it a name. I would really recommend doing this, mainly because, in this game, there are plenty of other fish in the sea. So, there you are; just a piranha minding its own business. Swimming in the ocean and passing a few islands as you go. You control your piranha by moving your mouse and clicking the mouse-button if you want to use the boost power. Lastly, you can use power-ups by pressing the space button on your keyboard. As you can see, Piranha is really easy to learn and play.
Let me set the scene for you: The weather is hot and the water is filled with people that are either peacefully floating around or swimming. Don’t worry, piranha does not discriminate; different races, different genders, people of all ages. It’s a veritable all you can eat buffet! The intention is to eat as much human flesh as possible in order to grow larger and larger. When you are big enough, you can even sink your teeth in other piranhas. But look out! When other piranha’s are bigger or have a higher level, they will eat you instead and you‘ll have to start all over again. In the right lower hand corner of the screen, you'll see a simple map with a number of dots on it. This map shows you where you are and where the other piranhas are. So you can try to avoid them or find them and eat them, ggrrr.
Basically, Piranh.io is a really simple game. It might not be the game you will play for hours and hours on end, but more a kind of game to play in-between more demanding games. Because what do you do, when you’ve finished a long game and are not up to the task of starting yet another “big” title. Yes, you’ve guessed it; you play an in-between games game. Are you still following me? Because I’m starting to feel a bit confused right now.
Nevertheless, if you have some time to spare, go to funny games and give Piranh.io a whirl. It’s got bright colors, doesn’t make your monitor ooze blood and gore, and I’m sure you’re going to play it with a smile on your face!
Have fun... and bon appétit!
