    I have been playing this game everyday now since about a month after it was released and have always been suspicious of the resources it requires as I can hear my CPU fan getting louder every time I play it.

    This doesn't make much sense to me as the game is so basic. I remember playing similar games in the 1980's on computers with about 1% of the computing power of a modern PC and they didn't have as many problems as slither.io.

    I was wondering if the developers of the game could be using 'cloud computing' software to generate Bitcoins or maybe processing voice recognition for the CIA or something similar as this would explain the seemingly unnecessary extra CPU load.

    Any takers?

    I love hearing about conspiracy theories. Don't believe in any of them.

    I haven't played it on the PC before, just on iOS. After about 20 minutes, my phone does get significantly hot and starts dragging. I more often than not have to restart the phone after playing to return it to its regular speed. So, while I don't play it on the PC, I'm seeing something similar on mobile.
