Taming.io is a multiplayer, crafting-based, battle-arena, survival game that features a stickman avatar and its faithful pet. The player directs the avatar to harvest resources to help it and its pet become old enough to fight other players' avatars and pets, create new items and build a base. They can also build a windmill that produces gold.
Of course, taming wild animals is critical in this game. The player can tame up to three at any time. Although they start with a wolf, they can immediately swap out the wolf in the arena with a rabbit or bear.
Once the player is in a battle landscape, they collect food, stone and wood. Food helps the player heal their avatar during and after a fight. Stone and wood resources help them build structures. As the player ages their avatar, they receive rewards, including useful foods, tools and weapons. They also receive bonus rewards at the beginning of each new game.
Taming.io changes the landscapes automatically now and then, which forces the player to learn about an entirely new environment. Additionally, it allows the player to perform cosmetic updates to their avatar over time.
