What I was looking for!


Recently I’ve been on a vintage game boy kick and ordered a bunch of Japanese game boy games.
One of them was called Kakomunja which was released over here under the title Serpent.
It’s a fascinating game that I heard was based off a classic game called Snake.

I wanted something similar and this Classic Snake app totally satisfies!
Thank you!!!

Glad you liked it :). BTW I also have an iPhone version called ‘Wow Snake’. Also free :)

great but could get some tweaks


im pretty disappointed because when i was having a good time and playing my game i finally got a new high score/i tripled it and right after it tripled it something happend and it quit on me but over all its great



This game is a perfect time killer. It's the only simple version of the game I could find, even online. Works flawlessly on my basic retina pro. Has all the "classic" features that are really hard to find in one version of the game. Some versions kill you if you touch the borders but this one transports you to the other side, as it should. Pretty fast paced, would be nice if there was a feature that let you set the speed, but otherwise the lack of options is good because it keeps it simple. Pause, change skin, (change background is "b" but I don't think it says it anywhere), that's all you really need. All the bugs were fixed, this game is like a dream to me. Thanks!
