Agar.io being the first IO game and the most popular of all is now also well known for having private servers.
But what exactly differentiates them from the original? Are they worth trying?
However, if you take a closer look and compare them you'll see they're actually different. They have a chat, a map at the bottom right and generally feel different when playing.
So what's going on?
After a little bit of research, we came to the conclusion that they're based on a clone of Agar.io.
At some point, someone made a clone of Agar.io and posted it online for anyone to download.
They claim that the original Agar.io sometimes suffers from lag and is also closed-source, so game developers can't access and change the code. They wanted to make an open source version for educational purposes and of course, so anyone can add mods with new features.
And it does sound like a great idea!
Not only can you play on any private server but you can also make your own custom servers.
With a little bit of knowledge about coding, just download it from the link below and read the instructions. It works both private and public, so it's also great if you just want to play with your friends.
You can even mod it, simply adjust the values to your liking and write your own mod when you're more experienced, or look out for mods and put them in your game.
Are you eager to make your own? Just click here: github.com/huytd/agar.io-clone
You can also try all kinds of versions of that clone on their wiki page here:
Our favorite is agarca.com because it has all you need for modded Agar.io. There are no lags, it has a chat, a map, and you can even level up.
The only thing that's missing are custom skins, so if you want that too you should visit c0nsume.me. It requires you to make an account but it features 30 skins and you can upload your own. You also have a feature to find your friends.
And last but not least here is the biggest modded Agar.io private server with all kinds of different game modes: agariohub.net
Have fun playing and modding! If you find any more great mods or custom servers make sure to post them in the comments.
