We announced a few days back the impending arrival of the game Snake Rewind. For those of you who may have missed the post, here's a little recap. The new game, Snake Rewind, is based on the old classic Snake, and was developed by Rumilus Design with the help of Taneli Armanto, the man responsible for putting snake on Nokia handsets. The game features similar mechanics as the original title which was the first smash hit mobile game.
Snake Rewind was originally set for release on May 14th, but to our surprise, the app is already live on the Play Store a few hours early!
I downloaded it and tried a couple of rounds. The pixelated graphics and retro video game music made for a nostalgic rabbit hole where I could easily see myself passing a few happy hours. I did miss the physical buttons to control the snake's path as I found the tap and swipe controls were a bit overly sensitive in my brief experience. Alas, I didn't get to play long since I had to pull myself away to write this post.
If you want to relive the glory days of 1997 when you rocked a bowl cut, turtle neck, and overalls with a Nokia 6110 nestled in the front pocket, then I suggest you download Snake Rewind and give it a try. It is free to play with IAPs. Also, keep an eye out for our in depth review coming shortly.
