  • If you’re going to want to make a splash in the eShop sometimes you just need to go for it with an off-center idea and maybe a catchy name. That’s what the people behind SnakeyBus have aimed for, and for the most part in terms of catching your attention initially it’s a success, playing out like a 3D version of Snake where your goal is to keep getting longer while managing to avoid getting stopped by falling into traps or stopping when you run into something (including yourself). There’s an element of amusement to things as in order to grow you’ll need to take on passengers and then deliver them to the next stop, to some degree borrowing a concept from the likes of Crazy Taxi. The issue is more than despite there being a variety of environments, some of them even being pretty creative, aside from just trying to have a better run and unlock new vehicles the experience doesn’t have a ton of staying power once the novelty wears off. It can be fun to pick up and goof off with for a while but unlike some gonzo titles in the same vein the experience just ends up being a bit disposable.
