A reboot of the classic retro game snake introduced in 1997. Remade with gorgeous hand-drawn 2d art and a 3d snake. The snake’s mechanics are completely new. This 3d snake can bend, and change size and speed during game-play, something you won’t see in any other snake games. A state of the art game with the retro beloved gameplay of snake 97.
Nibble your way through 100 amazing rounds in 5 worlds with 20 different bosses! The quest is easy: avoid all obstacles and eat the remaining fruit. The reptile will increase in size and speed after eating, especially if you eat the meat. Soda can make you smaller again. If you touch a turbo booster, your speed will increase rapidly for a few seconds, so try not to crash!
Bonus letters appear during your nimble quest. You better get them because if you complete the word ‘bonus,’ then you will get your hearts refilled and fat bonus points.

* 3d snake that bends and grows.
* Map with 5 beautiful worlds
* Lots of gameplay, 100 rounds, 20 bosses.
