    I know that maybe the "slither.io" game is not the major target of your rMB but my macbook become incredibly hot when i play it even for 5 minutes!
    I also note that the rMB become really hot when i'm on Facebook for 5-10 minutes (so when the home become rich of posts, photos etc).

    Is the same for you? Or is just my rMB?

    Mine becomes warm if I'm listening to iTunes and have multiple tabs open but its never been that hot. The hottest mine has been is when running N64 games, but even then it's not as hot as you're describing. Does it get warm even when idle?

    I just tried that game out (which turned out to be pretty fun!) and mine heated up within a few minutes, so I'd say it's normal. It's more than likely from the processor having to speed up. I have the m3 model if that makes a difference.

    M3 too here, so must be normal.
    But if with a simple web game like this the rmb become hot, how can work with complex game like Minecraft etc?
    On youtube i can find tons of videos of gameplays with this macbook and i can't even play a web game without cook my hands on it lol

    I'd get a laptop cooler or whatever those things are called. I probably won't game on this computer, that's what I've got my consoles for, but it'll be a different story on my future iMac.

    This is the price one pays for thinness and passive cooling.
