I’m sure pretty well just about everyone is familiar with the classic game of Snake. In my case, my earliest memories of a game in that vein was the Intellivision classic Snafu that I loved to play against my best friend but I digress. There have been variations on the theme over the years but the core play, with you simply growing longer as either time goes by or you eat and then trying to maneuver yourself in a way that you don’t end up being trapped by your own body. Though The Snake King does at least update the presentation a wee bit from the old school monochrome look you may have enjoyed on your early phone unfortunately it has done little else, so this will either be a throwback with new visuals you’ll enjoy for the nostalgia (or perhaps to suck in a younger gamer who appreciates the simplicity) or you’ll quickly be looking to move on to something more complex.
