Best Game. Never get bored!!!

Been playing this game for literally years now and still not bored of it. While other "top" games you can play for a week or so and have fun you will soon get bored and delete them. This game is a classic and always a good time waster. At first the controls seem weird because there is not d-pad but once you get used to the controls you wot want them any other way and you will be just as efficient. Play this game in fast invincible mode. I found that mode the most fun and the other mods don't even compare. 2 minutes of high speed fun. Just get used to the controls and you won't regret this download and it will never be deleted. The bad reviews are just from people who don't learn the control system. Again, once you get used to it, which doesn't take long, you will not want it any other way and will love it. Thanks developers for such a basic fun game! I really enjoy it.


This app is so addicting! I play it every single day. People complain about the controls but once you get used to it, it is fine! The only problem with it is that I can not update it because "it is not available any longer" which I don't really like at all. But I still have version 2.0 so it's okay. I would definetly recomend this app to anyone!! now i can update it and yyyyyeeeeesssss this app is sooo worth getting! i can try and beat my high score and i get to choose a bunch of settings!! i love this app!!!!!

A little confusing

It's fun like the classic game but the controls are a little confusing. It would make more sense to be able to use a four direction way to control the snake as opposed to only 2 directions - left and right. Maybe I'll get the hang of it.

Second review after update:
Much better now that it's been updated. My first review was 3 stars. Now I give it 5 stars. I enjoy the game and it's a lot easier but you have the option of making it harder. Definitely a good game now!
