Snake '97

Snake '97


Play Snake like it is 1997. This is a remake of the original Snake, complete with dot-matrix display and monotone sounds.

It is as addictive (and frustrating) as the original, play Snake '97 and be prepared to lose some productive hours.

Simply launch the app, touch a button and start!

Snake '97 features:
- old school controls (or choose for big easy controls)
- original sounds
- 9 original and 2 extra difficulty levels
- a high score that cannot be reset (just like the original)

The story behind this game is that my phone got damaged, requiring me to revert back to an old phone. Suddenly I knew the phone was missing something and the idea for a accurate Snake remake was born.

Snake '97 is an homage to the classic mobile phone game programmed in 1997.

By carefully analyzing the classic gameplay, timing and controls, this Snake '97 remake is one of the most accurate available.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, feel free to contact me.
Have Snake fun!

Brill! You can have your large, high definition screens, your voice recognition and your fingerprint scanners, but it's a fact that if you can't play Snake on your phone, then it'll never be cool. This version remains faithful to the 5110's, and, sixteen years later, is just as fun and addictive.

Perfect rendition That old Nokia was my first-ever cell phone and I spent hours playing this game. Perfect job - the keys respond exactly as they did on the real phone. For anyone complaining about the half second "delay" when you are about to hit a wall or yourself, that is exactly what happened on the original! True to form.
