Customer Reviews

Classic Snake

When I mentioned to the Developer that I hoped this app could have a new type of controls, that being “steering”, he responded immediately and added that capability. WOW! This is really well-done. The motion is fluid and the steering is flawless. So, not only is the app terrific, but so is the Developer.

Pretty Good

This is a really good game. The only thing that would make it better would be if you could start a new game with a snake that’s already long because in the beginning it’s always really boring.

Love it

Love this game and the developer actually reads the reviews and fixes the problems. Just one suggestion, could you put a fullscreen mode please?
