What is Snake Defender?

Snake Defender is a spin off of the classic Snake game that we all used to play on the old Nokia phones. It features improved graphics along with some other extra features. It’s currenly free in the Google Play Store with in app purchases.

Pretty much everyone knows how Snake works but in case you don’t, Snake is a game where you must avoid walls, eat things, grow larger, and eventually the challenge is avoiding your longer body. Snake Defender takes this concept and turns it into an action game. You still “eat” things and grow larger, but now you’re firing various weapons at things while avoiding them. There is a campaign mode with ten missions, a classic mode, and an endless mode.

Along with the basic mechanics, you can also upgrade your snake to give it more powerful weapons and other special abilities. It comes complete with leaderboards and achievements which, while not essential, are nice to have. There are also three sets of controls so you can find the method that works best for you.

Snake Defender review
Snake Defender does have some bugs but most manage to push passed them. The upgrades, a campaign, achievements and leaderboards give the player plenty to do. However, at the end of the day, this is a time waster much like the game it is based on so make sure to curb your expectations accordingly.
