Snake '97: retro phone classic

By dsd 164

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Play Snake like it is 1997. This is a remake of the original Snake, complete with dot-matrix display and monotone sounds.
Rewind time and get a dosis of nostalgia that is as addictive (and frustrating) as the original.

Play Snake '97 and be prepared to lose some productive hours.

Simply launch the app, touch a button and start!

Snake '97 features:
- old school controls
- dot-matrix display
- original monotone sounds (bleep bleep)
- 9 original and 3 extra difficulty levels
- Snake 1 and classic Snake 2
- 5 classic game modes (5110, 3210, 8210, 8850 and 3310 with Snake 2)
- bonus creatures (Snake 2)
- go through the walls! (Snake 2)
- 5 original and 2 extra labyrinths (Snake 2)
- a high score that cannot be reset (just like the original)

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 '97 is an homage to the classic mobile phone game programmed in 1997.

By carefully analyzing the classic gameplay, timing and controls, this Snake '97 remake is one of the most accurate available.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, feel free to contact me.
Have Snake fun!

Best regards from Amsterdam,
The developer,

Nostalgia Bomb!

I work for Verizon Wireless, and have been selling phones since 1998. I've witnessed the birth of the smartphone, text messaging, mobile internet, color screens, etc. I was always a massive fan of Nokia, and their products. I miss the days when T9 input was considered cutting edge tech. This app brings back good memories. Works great, and the option to use different phone models is a huge bonus! Sure, you get a fairly simple advertisement after each game, but the app costs nothing, and app development isn't free, so there's really nothing to complain about. Whoever had the idea to bring this game back, I tip my hat to you. Thank you!

Best retro app for the iPhone

If you want the feeling of playing the mainstream games of the 90's cell phones, this game gives you the experience right down to the number pad! This game's nod to the Nokia 3310, from the simulated lcd pixels to the "frog" ring tone played when losing, to the inclusion of snake 2 in this awesome throw back package. If I wasn't mistaken, I'd almost think this was the original thing from a screenshot. The only thing missing is an actual Nokia interface, which would be an awesome Easter egg if implemented. My only complaint is the annoying adds, but hey, what app doesn't have those am I right?

Fond Memories of Nokia and Snake

I had several Nokia phones through my early cell phone years. I loved them. One of my fondest memories was playing snake on everyone of my Nokia phones. This app works great. It is from a time of more simple, early technology. But then I am
still a fan of the original Atari type games, also, rather than the more sophisticated action games. Thanks for the fun memories and bringing back a fun game. It helps pass the time when waiting around in a waiting room or in a line somewhere.
