Last week we reported that the original programmer of the Snake game on Nokia devices, Taneli Armando, would be releasing a more modern take on the game dubbed Snake Rewind. The good news is that if you were wondering how it would handle and how it lives up to its predecessor, you can stop wondering as the game has been officially released.

The app itself is a free download although there are in-app purchases in which users can pay to buy more “fruit”. These fruits are counted towards your high score and can be collected within the game, but they also act as a form of currency where extra perks, bonus items, and missions can be unlocked with.

For those who’d rather not spend all day collecting fruit, like we said, they are also an in-app purchase which you can buy using real money. The game will feature power-ups such as magnets, a nice little twist on the classic Snake game, and users can choose to move their snake either using swipes or tapping on the screen.

Having taken the game for a spin I have to admit that the controls are a tad over sensitive and don’t seem to respond too well, sometimes causing me to crash into myself. That being said it does look like it has promise to be a fun and addictive game, so if you’d like to check it out, head on over to the iTunes App Store, Google Play, or the Windows Phone Store for the download.
