Review

Snake is a classic arcade game first developed in 1976. Using very basic dot matrix graphics, the aim is to direct a snake towards a piece of fruit. Each fruit it eats, the longer the snake gets, and the harder the game becomes. Why? Because the snake is not allowed to collide with itself or any of the walls on the screen.

The most well known version of the game came out on the Nokia phone in 1997, which is the version dsd 164 recreated here for both Android and iOS devices.

The developer worked very hard to make the game as authentic as possible, using all the original graphics, sounds, and levels. He also included Snake 2, and gives you the choice to play from a variety of Nokia mobile phone models.

It is a great game for anyone who wants to take a trip down memory lane, but I think anyone who was not part of the 90s Snake generation will bore easily.

Snake was my favourite arcade game as a child, but I did not play it on a Nokia phone, so my one gripe with this game is that it does not have instructions as to which buttons represent left, right, up, and down. I end up crashing several times because I can't remember which button I need to press. Apart from that it is good to go back to an old classic.
