WHAT IS LAND-IO?
In Land-io, players claim territory by moving around, making trails, and enclosing plots of land to gain them as their own.
The goal is to have the most land claimed when game time runs out, but watch out for other players! If someone runs into your trail, you'll lose all the land you've collected."
The player with the most land at the end of the 5 minutes wins the game.
