Skins are a change in appearance that can be applied to a player cell. They are purely cosmetic and do not have any effect on game play. Skins are available on all platforms and modes except Teams Mode. Although many skins are free, most have to be earned, unlocked or purchased. Currently, there are over 700 total skins available in the game.
The earliest skins could be applied by typing a certain name into the nickname box. Each of these skins require a unique name to be applied to your cell. These names are not case sensitive. There are over 120 of these "keyword" skins in the game.
