Original “Snake” developer Taneli Armando has collaborated with mobile game publisher Rumilus Design to bring “Snake Rewind” to iOS and Android devices. The game is an enhanced remake of the original cell phone game “Snake” that came with most cell phone games in the 90’s and early 2000’s, but with updated graphics, sound effects and power-ups that were unavailable in the previous “Snake” cell phone game.

Fans will be happy to know that familiar gameplay has returned in the form of “Snake Rewind” and is mostly unchanged from the original Nokia game, along with the aforementioned new features, as reported by Droid Life. Another new addition to the game is that there is now 10 mouse eating levels, whereas there was only ever one level in the original Nokia “Snake” game.

Nostalgic gamers will be happy to know that of the 10 levels in the game, the final one is the original level in the original “Snake” game. According to Pocket Gamer, players are going to have to work for that level, by completing the other nine levels.

Of course, being a free-to-play mobile game, “Snake Rewind” gives players the option of unlocking the original “Snake” level by purchasing it as in-app purchases. Additionally, players can also get power-ups and boosters as IAP if they want to go that route and have an easier time beating the game.

For those unfamiliar with the classic cell phone game, back in the 1990s when cell phones couldn’t take selfies or download apps, there was a Nokia cellphone game called “Snake,” which managed to be the perfect time killer despite its simple graphics. Gameplay for the game wasn’t too complicated; as players would control a snake that would get bigger for each mouse it ate.

As the game goes on and the snake gets bigger, it has a more likely chance to hit its own body and result in a “game over,” which was part of the game’s challenge. This resulted in numerous cell phone users attempting to beat their own scores, along with the scores of their friends who also had the game.

“Snake Rewind” is available now for both iOS and Android devices. The game is a free-to-play download and should entice fans of the classic Nokia title, while also giving new gamers a proper challenge and an addictive experience.
