About Spinner IO
Spinning tops may look pretty simple and easy to understand, but there is a lot happening beneath the surface. This game has a distinctive surface and you can figure out what's underneath fairly quickly. It's just about spinning tops and finding ways to approach your opponents so that you can knock them out. You may spend time in the match chasing after other tops or being bounced around like a pinball, but that's just what you can expect. How you recover from the loss of control is the test of skill that will keep you in the game and make you want to keep spinning and fighting.
How to Play
Spinner IO is a 3D isometric battle game about spinning tops trying to knock each other by using only the mouse. To take control of your top, click and hold the Left Mouse Button anywhere on the screen. To move the top, just drag the cursor around and your top will follow its position. The goal is to be the last top standing by knocking out all the other tops out of the arena. If you're knocked out, you'll need to wait until the next match.
The spinners operate on bumper mechanics, meaning that you need to spin into other tops to bump them around. It's based on momentum so the tops that gain more ground are able to hit much harder. Small bumps can interrupt momentum by knocking you off your current path. The arenas can be in different shapes but don't have any borders meaning that tops will fall off if knocked out. The more matches you win, the higher your rank and the more skins you unlock.
Tips and Tricks
This is a battle where you want to stay out of the center as much as you can. The more tops you hit back to back, the harder it will be to gain control and build up momentum. Tops are less likely to stay near the edges, so you should take advantage of this space to build speed and then sweep back into the fray with a massive hit.
