About this game

Play Snake like it is 1997. This is a remake of the original Snake, complete with dot-matrix display and monotone sounds. Rewind time and get a dosis of nostalgia that is as addictive (and frustrating) as the original.

Play Snake '97 and be prepared to lose some productive hours.

Simply launch the app, touch a button and start!

Snake '97 features:
- old school controls
- dot-matrix display
- original monotone sounds (bleep bleep)
- 9 original and 3 extra difficulty levels
- Snake 1 and classic Snake 2
- 7 classic game modes (5110, 3210, 8210, 8850 and 3310, 3410 and 7110 with Snake 2)
- bonus creatures (Snake 2)
- go through the walls! (Snake 2)
- 5 original and 2 extra labyrinths (Snake 2)
- a high score that cannot be reset (just like the original)

The story behind this game is that my smartphone got damaged, requiring me to revert back to an old phone. Suddenly I knew the smartphone was missing something and the idea for a accurate Snake remake was born.

Snake '97 is an homage to the classic mobile phone game programmed in 1997.

By carefully analyzing the classic gameplay, timing and controls, this Snake '97 remake is one of the most accurate available.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, feel free to contact me.
Have Snake fun!

Best regards from Amsterdam,
The developer,
Willem.

good idea but execution is difficult to achieve. On old phones, we can at least feel the button tactilely, manning to them with both hands without looking. On the smartphones, this advantage is taken away -- we have to constantly monitor the bottom part of the screen to ensure that we are pushing the correct buttons. That is very straining and distracting when we already have to watch where the snake is going. Great for the dev to bring back these simple games without all the extreme graphics.

Exactly what it says on the box, so to speak. I've looked for this game for eons and I was very happy to have it, it has the original Snake I remember and it also includes the option to change the skin of the phone to newer Nokia models, which also changes the version of Snake you play. That's a really nice touch. Another nice touch is the light tactile feedback. When you press a key on the screen, the phone will vibrate slightly, which adds to the authenticity of the experience. Light ads.

Exactly how these games are meant to be played. Most other ports either mess up controls or they forget to add the delay that's supposed to be there on snake ii before registering a hit. This has been the only one to get it completely right and also bundle multiple versions.
