How many twisted versions of snake have we already seen? Countless, but we never have enough, last year for example we were amazed by the visual approach of Spilt Milk’s Hard Lines, and this week we’re getting this new refresh update by Canadian game creator Alexander Szpakowski.

His uptake on the 70s classic was released yesterday on Desura for $4.99 although right now it’s on sale for less than 3$. Basically Snayke much like the original Snake proposes a puzzly game where you’ll have to guide your own snake in a pixelated world to consume every food block you see while avoiding the usual obstacles… and yourself. The fun comes when you advance in the game as you encounter bizarre blocks like teleporters, bombs, sequentials, reversals… etc.

On top of adding the multiplayer option and over 100 levels the game comes in 3 flavors (Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux) and maybe also worth mentioning the soundtrack by veteranĀ game composer Anton Riehl. More info on the game website.
