Sipho io is a game where you'll be playing for a micro colony (base on the real underwater creatures – Siphonophorae), find food for nutrition, build functional blocks (Zooids) and fight enemies!
How to Play
Your actual goal in the Siphio is to survive. The colony uses individual creatures, called zooids. Each zooid specializes in some sort of basic behavior – some zooids eat food, others are responsible for movement, attacking other creatures or providing structural support. All of the zooids combine into a single colony to use each other for a common goal – survival!
Collect nutritious green food to use it for growing new zooids. Use weaponized zooids to kill enemies for even more food. Kill bosses in Sipho io to unlock new zooids.
4 basic types of zooids are:
STRUCTURE - structural blocks
MOVEMENT - movement blocks, note that they go only in one direction
COMBAT - attacking blocks (you can setup key binds for skill in Grow menu)
CONSUMPTION - food absorption blocks
