Snake Rewind hits the Play Store
If you’re in the mood for some retro gaming, you may be pleased to hear that Snake Rewind is now available from the Play Store. The game was only announced last week and is being developed by Taneli Armanto, the creator behind the original, and game studio Rumilus Design.
Graphically, the game is clearly a step up from the 1991 classic and features a particularly nice light and shadow effect. Despite the revamped look, the game still retains much of its original charm and feel. Although the touch screen controls can be a bit hit and miss.
As for the dreaded in-app purchases, the currency in the game is fruit, which can either be collected by your snake eating it or purchased for real cash. This can be used to open up new levels and there’s also the option to “rewind” if your snake tries to eat itself, which will cost you some of your fruit stockpile. If you run out, there is the option to purchase extra fruit along with additional power ups, a familiar app monetizing strategy these days.
If you’re keen to see if Snake Rewind can live up to the beloved original, you can grab the download for free from this Play Store link.
