Snake Classic

snakeclassic.jpgSnake Classic is a great new rendition of the "classic" game of Snake, created by Arseniy Shklyaev of GameBalance.

In case you've been too busy playing Halo and are not quite familiar with the "snake" genre, you start life as a tiny single dot of a snake who's goal is to move across the screen and consume other dots. The side effect of this is your body increases in size every time you grab a dot. As you grow larger and larger you will inevitably crash into yourself - which ends your game. Snake Classic takes this simple game mechanic and gives it new life with catchy music, tons of gameplay options (how many dots to grab, sound effects, etc.) In addition you get to choose what colors your snakey protagonist will have using a grid of dots that looks like something out of a kid's dream box of marbles.

You might be saying to yourself "ho hum, another snake game". However, the combination of catchy music, whimiscal graphics, and smooth motion of the snake gives this game an edge over others. The snake follows your mouse smoothly and faithfully, allowing you to do some daring corner turns and quick changes of direction. Watch out, however, if your snake friend catches up to your mouse he'll immediate whip around and bite himself. As you play Snake Classic, the levels grow in complexity as you are forced to navigate around progressively smaller and smaller doorways and obstacles, giving this game a bit of a strategic edge. You need to think a bit carefully while whipping around the screen.

All in all, a faithful rendition of the snake genre with enough variety to give you a short bit of distraction.

Definitely a worthy snake clone. The movement is very fluid, and controlling it with the mouse is great. Some of the obstacles in later levels are very tricky and once you have a long snake they can be tough to get out of if you didn't think about that when going in and manoeuvring around in them. Being able to choose from 90 different skins is cool, even though I just put it on random. The mouse control rather than arrow keys is the main thing that makes this game very nice, I think.

i think this is a beautiful snake game too... i found the mouse quite a challenge to work with. (note i didn't say "too difficult" or "too hard", it was just "challenging") one thing i found out rather quickly with the mouse was that you HAVE to keep the mouse moving at all times. if the snake catches up to the mouse (it'll eat it! ba-dum-ching!), then the snake will loop back on itself (still going in the direction of the mouse) and eat itself. so i must give props to anyone who can play this game with the mouse... i just can't keep my concentration levels up to be constantly moving my hand and watching the screen at the same time.

i liked the fact that you can choose your speed and duration for each level. i found myself playing strategy, trying to decide what i thought i could do to try to beat the level on the first go and get the bonus points. it'd be interesting to have two people playing this game right next to each other, taking turns, and trying to outscore the other guy over a series of rounds. ("i can name that tune in 50 tails at speed 3!")

another day, another brilliant find... props to you, andreww!

I couldn't help but notice (and, of course, comment) that this game runs fluently on the Wii and feels natural.

Tried to load this game today, and my browser can't find the website. This may be temporary, but you might want to look into it.

Thanks, chibidani. I know Arseniy, and I'm sure it's only a temporary condition. Try it again later, or tomorrow and I'm sure the server will be back online.
