    If you're a fan of games that mix a simplistic formula with deep mechanics, Snakeball is the title for you. With impressive gameplay modes, leaderboards and an ultra slick presentation, this one seems worth the mere ten dollar price tag.
  2. There are loads of gameplay modes for your money - including online multiplayer for up to eight players, specific puzzle-style challenges, and a classic survival mode where you have to nosh as many balls (wahey etc) as you can before you gobble your own tail (wahey etc).

    Controlling the snake is just awkward with the stick, and the design style is a bit meek. [Issue#159, p.97]

    Time has moved on and, even with a few new twists, "Snake" hasn't aged well. [Jan 2008, p.79]

    Note to Sony: next time, just make us a game where we can chuckle at our distended faces. It's funnier. [Dec 2007, p.113]

    Great graphics, silky smooth visuals and addictive gameplay that is never the same game twice. And the best part - the funky music that is Great graphics, silky smooth visuals and addictive gameplay that is never the same game twice. And the best part - the funky music that is the perfect blend of funk and downtempto electronica. Better than most other games that cost 5x as much!! Collapse

    ever wondered what your favorite nokia game snake would be like with more than one player?
    This is snakeball...
    except sadly youll be playing either coach co op or with ai as the online is dead even with playstation giving this game away for free with playstation plus...
    Here you start with choosing 1 of 16 characters and a color.. Then you choose one of 10 different game modes…
    But actually they’re all basically the same...
    There are colorful balls all around the map for you to collect and score into the middle of the arena before time runs out...
    All while doing this against 3 other players trying to do the same thing…
    in most of the game modes taking out a player will net you 500 points…
    You can take out a player by grabbing as much balls as possible to become longer making it easier for them to run into you... but of course this makes it easier for you to run into the mines that will randomly pop up in game...
    But there are also weapons around that you can grab to blast players…
    Snakeball is complete chaos but not in a good way...
    Its chaos without direction…
    it feels like you’re a chicken running around with its head cut off...
    Other than weapons youre able to boost for a short period of time to stop this game fom feeling like slugball..
    But unfortunately for the most part it does thanks to this boost running out way too quickly...
    I feel like the boost should be infinite and up to the player to choose to be reckless or not..
    Or you move way too slow on your own…
    |Snakeball is just not fun...
    I was hoping this would be a neat hidden gem in the psn graveyard
    but it’s not...
    It’s bad, and even for free not worth the download
    I give Snakeball
    a 4/10
