This week’s App of the Week brings us all back to the simple days of mobile phones. Back when feature phones were the latest and greatest, and when there was that one game on your phone you played way too much, mostly because it was the only game on your phone.
That one legendary game, for many people out there, was Snake. Shipped on the old school Nokia 6610 and 3310 brick phones, it was an addictive time waster in which the more you played, the more beating your high score became a matter of life or death.
The creator of the original mobile Snake is back to feed your nostalgia with Snake Rewind: A new and improved version that, fortunately, doesn’t stray too far from its dated predecessor.
Eat fruit, get longer, and avoid running into the wall or yourself – just like back in the day. While there’s new stages, effects and features (like the ability to rewind time if you hit an obstacle), it’s still the same old Snake you know and love.
Snake Rewind is available on Android, iOS and Windows Phone devices and is free to play (outside of some unnecessary in-app purchases). The game is a lot of fun with tons of replay value, so if you find yourself with a few minutes of free time during the day and enjoy simple arcade games, Snake Rewind is worth checking out.
