Gameplay of Hole io Unblocked
Typically, grow games are endless and focus more on eating other players for big rewards. Then, when you get eaten, you start all over again.
Hole io Unblocked is different. Although you can absorb other players, the main goal is eating up as many objects as you can. This allows you to grow rapidly within the two-minute time limit. If you are consumed, you only have to wait a few seconds before respawning.
Hole io Unblocked has several game mechanics, including having to eat objects smaller than the hole, meaning if an object is bigger than or the same size as the hole, then the hole cannot suck the object and the latter will stay in place. Holes can also eat other holes by colliding with them, if they are also enough bigger than them.
There are three available game modes as of today:
- Classic: The first and default mode, available at the game’s launch. The goal is to get the best score possible in an arena in 2 minutes (technically, becoming the biggest hole)
- Battle Royale: This mode pits the player against multiple opponents with the goal of being the last hole standing. While players can still consume the environment, the goal is to eliminate all other holes.
- Teams: Basically the same as the classic mode, but 2 teams of holes battle against each other to gather the largest total score possible. The score of a team is calculated by adding all of its members’ scores
Soon after its release, Hole io Unblocked made it to the top of the free games section on the Apps Store and Google Play, receiving over 10 million downloads on Google Play alone.
While some reviewers criticized it for copying core mechanics of Donut County, others characterized the game as being “oddly satisfying and addictive”.
