If you have used Nokia’s older phones, i.e. the 3310, 3330, etc, then the game of Snake II might be one familiar to you. Granted the original Snake found on phones like the 3210 were quite popular, but we guess with the new gameplay mechanics introduced in Snake II, it proved to be more popular. With that being said, we’re sure that some of you guys can agree that the game is missed and it would be awesome if you could play it on your smartphones these days. While there are alternatives out there, for those hankering for the classics, the good news is that Nokia has announced that the original developer of Snake ’97 has created a smartphone version of the game and will be available for Lumia devices.
As you can see in the screenshot above, the interface of the game mimics the 3310’s handset layout including its buttons and what not. Players will maneuver their snakes using the 2, 4, 6, and 8 keys to move their snake up, left, right, and down respectively. If you’re interested in picking up the game, head on over to the Windows Phone Marketplace where it will set you back $0.99. Alternatively Nokia has also uploaded a browser version of the game for whoever’s interested.
