    Snake '97: retro phone classic's review

    Published: 2012-01-26, by .

    Snake '97 is an emulation of the classic Nokia 5110 snake game.

    • Pure nostalgia
    • Good screentouch response
    • Better with online leaderboards

    "Nostalgics, let's get united!"

    Is there anyone on the Earth surface that haven't ever played or heard about this? We're pretty sure not. This is the genesis of phone games, the first, the special one. Fifteen years later it's already a classic, specially since we got powerful mobile devices in our pockets.

    After playing even full HD 3D games in our smartphones, we cannot conceal our thrill when we discovered Snake '97. Playing it as we used to do with Nokia 5110's dial is just wonderful. Although at first sight it looks weird: a partial photo of a Nokia 5110 focusing on the black & white screen; you end realizing how much funnier is displaying it like this. Much better than a full-screen snake game.

    You already know the gameplay: feed the snake as much as you can avoiding it touching walls and itself. Challenge yourself trying to beat your marks.

    Although we love its simplicity, it could have been enhanced with current resources like the online leaderboards. We just say. The rest is lovely. 100% for nostalgics. Great job by dsd_164, its developer. Recommendable.
