Paper.io is the latest of the .io games where something super simple is transformed into an extremely addictive MMO. Your goal is to make squares and rectangles in your color, while mixing it up against other players and taking over the board. Snip their lines, don’t get snipped, and you can earn a ton of coins and unlock new avatars. Read on for some tips and tricks for Paper.io!
The way to take over space on the board is to move in a rectangle and then move back into your color. Once you close off the shape, then that space will be added to your territory. That space is yours until you die or until another player takes over your space.
To stop another player from taking over your space, crash through their transparent line if they are outside of their own territory. You’ll snip the line and knock them completely off the board. If someone does this to you, likewise, your run is over, unless you have watched the advertisement video to get an extra life. If you’ve done this, then you’ll come back with the territory that you had before you died, and get another shot at it.
If you crash headfirst into another player in white (neutral) territory, then both of you will be dead unless you get back into your territory within one square of the hit. If you crash headfirst into another player inside of your own territory, their run will be over and your run will continue. Many players don’t realize this, so lure players into your own territory by pretending that you aren’t paying attention to them if you want to earn some easy kills.
Your coin earnings at the end of the round are dependent on how much space you took over as well as how many kills you had. For each kill, you earn 30 base coins. Your base coins for the percentage of territory that you take over are 8 for each one percent if you have over 5 percent of territory, which means that ending a run at 25 or more percent can earn you a huge amount of coins.
