    Hi,I like the way you did with the game and am impressed.But that's not a real .io game :) i mean it follows a pattern.I have long way to go to understand bb3 and make a game similar to this so i am not criticizing .See if you could make a game like bumper.io , paper.io etc i.e AI Character defeats and follows the Actor/Hero :) .
    Anyhow all the best.And thanks for sharing.Btw Downloaded and played your game.

    .io is just a domain extension. What's the big deal?

    I think we know .io is a domain and that is why the first game used .io but it is becoming more of a category/ style of game

    Well .io is ofcourse a domain extension but the fact is only we the developer and few players could really understand what it means.But for a majority users .io is a game type.Many have send me feedback when i used io tag for my game.They believe .io is a multiplayer format.Hence its a big deal ;)

    Its a domain name extension that BECAME a game type because of popular games like Slither .io and Agar .io.
    So because they used .io for this multiplayer/fake multiplayer game style, it generated a NEW category in game design as well.

    Ok so .io is basically a fake multiplayer game style. Why not use an fm extension?

    .io is the domain extension of Indian Ocean territory, but since IO also means In/Out, the extension was used by some Nodejs networking libraries like socket.io, engine.io and eureca.io (the last one is mine ;) ) ....
    Later, the game Agar.io started a new trend of simple multiplayer games, which was then followed by many other multiplayer games that used the same domaine extenstion ".io".

    so .io took a special meaning in gaming and JS libraries, it's about networking an multiplayer, not about playing agains AI !

    That being said, you can't make .io games using BB3, at least with the current scope, because you simply can't access the networking layer throught BB3 API.
