  • Summary: Sssnakes is a new twist on the classic snake video game. It is an upgrade for modern times without giving up its essence. Go through the jungle to the inside of the temple, avoid the traps, move through intricate mazes and face other snakes.

    The best feature of Sssnakes however is the price: this game can be purchased for just a penny short of two quid!

    For the low price of entry it's worth having on your 3DS just to relive the nostalgia of the Nokia version, but we would not expect Sssnakes to be one you rave to your friends about. It does not have the originality of other classic action puzzle games, and unfortunately the graphics and music do little to reel you in.

    Sssnakes tries to bring back the experience of the game that was popularized sixteen years ago in Nokia mobile phones and while the intention is laudable, its execution and implementation end up falling very short of what's expected. Unresponsive controls and an exaggerated difficulty level, along with a sub-par presentation and a lack of content trump over a low price tag and the good ideas introduced in some of the levels.

    Adding fresh ideas to revitalize an old idea can yield some excellent results. However, it requires a certain degree of effort to be put in to nailing what made the original great. Only then can the solid foundation be built upon. Snake games as a concept have had decades to become extremely polished, yet Sssnakes seems to ignore the lessons of the past in favour of trying new things. The result is a game that feels completely half-baked, with new "features" that struggle to stand up while the ground crumbles beneath their feet.
