“Snake,” The O.G. Time-Waster of Yore, Is Coming Back to Your Phone
The game’s creator is launching a reboot for smartphones.
For those of us who had Nokia phones over a decade ago, we spent countless hours feeding the insatiable growing line block known as “Snake.” Now, in an era of “Candy Crush” and “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” creator Taneli Armanto is launching a new version of our beloved lo-fi cell phone game.
On May 14th, “Snake Rewind” will be available for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. It promises better graphics and features like levels, power-ups, and rewinds. Whether the nostalgia was better left untouched, to lay dormant with our Tamagotchis and Furby’s, has yet to be determined.
