Shadow Snake 3

TrickyEver since he placed 6th in the Jade Emperor's Great Race, the Snake gets to Zodiac-party the heck out of every twelfth year. And if 2013 is the Year of the Snake, well, then there's absolutely no reason why it can't be the year of the Shadow Snake 3, the new browser arcade game from PlayPanic, also as a free download for iOS and Android. Click and hold the mouse to direct your snake around the play area. Collecting all the sun pieces will open the portal to the next level. Avoid the dark matter critters that will chomp away at your health. Collect green nature energy and auras to recharge your health and protect you from hits, and collect fire orbs and bombs to send waves of flame at the baddies. Completing each level will give you points to use on upgrades. Once a level is completed you can replay it on "hard" and "insane" modes for more spendable points. There are four temples of seven levels to complete.

The basic gameplay of Snake is as familiar as it is hard to mess up, but Shadow Snake 3 does a great job in its interpretation. The visuals and music do a great job of evoking the naturalistic feel the developers intended, even if they do seem a little incongruous once the difficulty kicks up in later levels. The Confucian quotes at the start of each level are a little much, but hey, we could all use a little more ren in our lives. In short, Shadow Snake 3 servers up a little mystery, a little mysticism, and soothingingly satisfying snake gameplay.

Bummer that it's in Unity. Considering that even a large company like Adobe has trouble keeping Flash secure, I'm very reluctant to install a similar platform by a much smaller group on my computer. Pass.

The reason Adobe has so much trouble keeping Flash secure is that Flash is nearly ubiquitous, and malware hackers like to target systems with maximum potential payoff. Therefore Unity is not likely to be targeted anytime soon. That said, there's a lot of people using Unity as a development engine to build games due to its cross-platform capabilities, and therefore it's very likely we'll see more and more browser games coming out for Unity.

tl;dr: I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.

Agree, unity has been issue free for me. I just wish I had a mouse instead of a trackpad to play this with.

Whatever you do, DO NOT click leave unless you are REALLY done. Not sure if its a bug or save issue, but even though it will save progress... you lose ALL upgrades you've earned.

The Android version is made really really well on the technical and design level.
The design is great and the game is really responsive. (A side note: Unlike most games, the unity engine allows landscape mode in both directions! This is especially great if you have your A/C plugged.)

But there is one big bummer:
Your finger!
You only see your finger when navigating. So it is sometimes impossible to see enemies early enough or to navigate precisely. This is something you won't have with the mouse.
