Hey folks, welcome to the feature series we call “EXPlay.” A series of feature articles where we share our experience on games we’ve recently played in the form of written views and captured gameplay footage. In this installment, we’re all about The Snake King by YeTa Games.

The Snake King

EXPlay The Snake King: (Nintendo Switch)

The Snake King is a modern iteration of the classic mobile game Snake. You play as the Snake King and must gobble up all the apples in each stage. As each apple is eaten, the body of the snake grows larger and larger. You will constantly move forward and can turn left or right but be careful of trapping yourself in a dead end otherwise you will have to restart the level.

Saying that, there is some leniency in The Snake King. You will at times, find yourself in a position where you accidentally bounce into an obstacle like a pot or a pool of water, a wall, or even into yourself. You have a brief second to alter course before you “die” and need to restart. You can do this as many times as you like so don’t worry about crashing into things too much.

There are 150 levels in The Snake King to indulge yourself in. Each level is made up of multiple rooms that contains a number of apples. You have to collect the apples in each room in order to open the door into the next room. In the last room you will find a teleporter that will be activated once the last apple has been eaten. The level will finish upon touching the activated teleporter. You will then go back to the level select stage and be able to progress onto the next level.

The Snake King is a rather simplistic game but its choice of level design and keeping the levels relatively short means you can enjoy the game in quick sessions. It is a game that you can come back to again and again over time, much like the mobile original.
