Simply launch the app, select difficulty and start!
Snake '97 features:

- dot-matrix display
- original monotone sounds (bleep bleep)
- 9 original and 3 extra difficulty levels
- Snake 1 and classic Snake 2
- 3 classic game modes (Easy, Medium, Hard)
- bonus creatures (Snake 2)
- a high score that cannot be reset (just like the original)
How to Play:
- Right Swipe to make the snake turn right. In the same way, you can turn left, move up or down.
The story behind this game is that my smartphone got damaged, requiring me to revert back to an old phone. Suddenly I knew the smartphone was missing something and the idea for a accurate Snake remake was born.
Snake is an homage to the classic mobile phone game being programmed in 1997.
By carefully analyzing the classic gameplay, timing and controls, this Snake Retro remake is one of the most accurate available.
Total waste of programming skills Rating: -1*
This program is a waste of time. Could have been better made. Would have been nice to see maybe some barricades were you have to move around them. The snake just randomly dies when you are about to pick up one of the pieces. Also swiping is not retro as mentioned by some other people. Also, no technical support to find out why things are so buggy. I am actually going to delete this game. Not worth the iPad memory space.
Buggy. Positioning between the snake and the dots is off, which makes gameplay confusing. Meanwhile the thing that makes the game impossible to enjoy is the random dying? i never had the opportunity to eat more than 4 dots because the game would randomly kill me.
Buggy, random death, and not good. Played for a few mins and deleted. I'm sure there is better games out there that accomplish the same thing without the bugs and without being forced to watch ads. Would rate higher if game worked as intended but it did not.
