iDef is a modern version of the original game of snake. There are three game modes built in but the game is not the conventional eat-to-expand game that first appeared in the eighties. This time you’re chewing up chargers on a power network in outer-space to prevent the shut down of the planets entire electrical network which will put the Earth back into the stone-age.

It’s a tricky game to master but extremely easy to pick up and play a casual game to unwind - especially with the three different game modes that extend the play. Normal, Zen and Nasty play out pretty much how they sound.

Normal: Consume the dischargers to stay alive. Your power is constantly being drained by the grid and this is the only way to keep it up. Every movement will drop a deflector, which is your means to change direction, so you need to be quick with your fingers to preserve movement options.

Zen: Play is similar to "Normal" mode but deflectors that are destroyed around the explosion will get you your points.

Nasty: Iis exactly that. Consuming dischargers won’t clear the deflectors on the grid around you so it’s a foregone conclusion that you’re on borrowed time. Here’s where you have the real challenge of trying to get a decent score.

iDef will store all your gameplay records in a handy statistics screen so you can have bragging rights over your mates.

What a great retro game

Couldn’t believe it when I saw this little gem on the appstore by pure chance. I used to play Snake on my old Nokia 3310 mobile phone almost 20 years ago so I thought I’d have a look and see if I could still play it now. This is basically Snake but it’s done with such style and pretty graphics, animations and music, that it feels like a whole new experience. It also has three game modes so you can try another one if you get bored of playing on plain snake mode.

Why is this free? Maybe the coder thought people wouldn’t buy it. I think I would if I’d seen a video of it running and how much the game’s evolved. Even the music is great. Someone pick this up who’s a You-Tuber and give the game creator the credit he deserves by doing some play-through’s.

Love this game, man.
