Play retro styled Snake on Lumia phones

The application not just replicates the game but also a retro Nokia phone of 1997. It even has monotone sound and monochrome colour.

If you are very fond of the old Snake game, then do not worry. A new game, named Play Snake, is now available in Windows Phone app store.

This is a remake of the original Snake game that we used to play in 1997. It comes with dot-matrix display and monotone sounds. The app features an old Nokia phone (Nokia 5110) design which displays on the screen leaving just the screen of the old phone (1.8 inch) to play the game.

The recreation is very realistic. The developers have kept all the original controls of the game. Even sound and graphics have been recreated. The game has nine original levels plus two extra difficulty levels. Just like in the original Snake game, a high score in this too cannot be reset.

“The story behind this game is that my modern smartphone got damaged in an Amsterdam bar…, requiring me to revert back to an old phone. Suddenly I knew the modern smartphone was missing something and the idea for an accurate Snake remake was born,” the developer of the game said.

The game, which is the best recreation of any classic game that we have seen, is available for Rs 55. Its free version is also available but you can only score till 250 points; to play further you need to pay. The game can be downloaded on both Nokia Lumia 710 and Lumia 800, and even on other Windows Phone 7.5 based devices.
