Mobile and browser title Slither.io was the most searched game on Google in 2016.

Google has revealed the top ten games searched for in its search engine for the year, and only two mobile games made the list, both of which are also browser games.

Slither.io topped the list, owing to its popularity at the start of the year. The game it is largely based on, Agar.io, came second.
