‘Snake Rewind’ modernizes the Nokia recreation for touchscreen units
Snake — that addictive, reflex-testing cellular recreation on previous Nokia brick telephones — is trying a comeback. A model for contemporary smartphones and tablets referred to as Snake Rewind might be launched on Might 14th by recreation developer Rumilus Design and Taneli Armanto. The latter’s the Nokia engineer who preloaded it on the 6110 again in 1997 and the one you possibly can blame for all these wasted hours and bouts of Snake-induced rage. For the younger’uns who do not know what it is about: the sport provides you management of a slithering serpent throughout feeding time. You’d need to get its mouth in the identical line as its pixel meals, typically by twisting and contorting its constantly elongating physique utilizing the keyboard. It’d sound lame described like that, however over a decade in the past, it occupied the throne Sweet Crush is sitting on.
We do not assume it is potential to duplicate the texture of the unique Snake and not using a bodily keyboard; it positive was unusual making an attempt to play the bootleg apps (there are numerous for numerous platforms) on a touchscreen gadget. Nevertheless, we might say the builders have been gunning for an entire reboot anyway, one which’s extra colourful with a bunch of energy ups to have the ability to entice a brand new era of gamers.
The most important change is probably the facility to “rewind” the sport (therefore, the identify) after getting a Recreation Over. Its builders are additionally promising totally different themes and numerous particular results. In the intervening time, it is unclear if Snake Rewind might be a paid or a freemium app, however it is going to be obtainable for iOS, Android and Home windows units when it comes out. As as to if it could possibly reclaim its throne, your guess is nearly as good as ours — we’re simply hoping no one injures themselves making an attempt to feed a hungry a digital serpent.
