First released in the late 1990s, plenty of us remember playing or at least seeing the innovative Snake game. The black and white screen, four-directional movement, and goal of not crashing the snake while trying to eat fruit remains timeless.
Now the game’s original creator Taneli Armanto, in conjunction with Rumilus Design, is releasing a modern take on the classic game. Snake Rewind will be released for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone on May 14, 2015.
The most notable new feature exists right within the name. Players will have the ability to rewind the snake after a crash in order to continue the game. Other expected features of Snake Rewind include:
- New fruit types like Fruit Magnet, Trailblazer, and Score Multiplier
- A fruit store for boosters and upgrades
- Unlockable levels by completing challenging missions
- Competitions against friends for the highest scores
