In Beads.io you take control of a giant magnet that is suspended in the air above a hexagonal arena. Six players compete in every round, each of them is assigned a color at the beginning of the match. At first you can only collect the beads of your own color, but if you manage to overpower an enemy, you take all of their possessions and from that point on you get to gather their color too. It is important to occasionally return to your starting position to unload the beads and get points for them – that’s how you grow bigger and more powerful. Be careful around larger opponents – they can destroy you in a blink of an eye undoing all of your progress.
The graphics are simple but appealing and colorful, the controls are intuitive and easy to remember, there is nothing standing between you and the first place except for your own experience and skill. A convenient arrow is always pointing at your home base so that you don’t get lost in the heat of the fight. The difficult part is navigating the arena (that is only barely large enough to have six players at the same time) without getting killed, so be aware of your surroundings.
Beads.io is definitely one of those games that don’t have a steep learning curve – as a matter of fact, it is very easy to understand and start playing, but it will take some time to get accustomed to the mechanics of the game. If you think you have what it takes, it is time to become the most powerful magnet in the world and prove yourself in the arena!
