    A blast of nostalgia from days gone by, Hard Lines improves upon the winning formula by offering multiple game modes, multiple input methods, and a rocking soundtrack to boot.

    You will believe...that lines have feelings, too.

    Hard Lines doesn't require fancy 3D graphics or a huge gimmick to make Snake fun again; amusing writing, multiple modes and competitive AI go a long way to revive this classic game.

    Like most things in life, personality goes a long way, and Hard Lines has it in spades. And probably buckets as well.

    Hard Lines is an amazing attempt to revive an old gameplay with a formula that mixes two different gameplay mechanics. That's not just a Snake clone: it's a game about surviving that charms the player with chiptune music and neon graphics.

    It gets far more laughs than it should, and special mention to its credits song: perhaps the finest ending on the App Store. Original, funny, and intense: for a game based on Snake, not bad at all.

    It's not the most amazing thing ever by any stretch of the imagination but if you like the idea of a suped-up Snake, with a bunch of modes, and don't want to lower yourself to lugging a dated mobile phone around with you, it's hard to beat.
