Enjoy the classic Snake experience on your phone with a touchscreen.
Overall Score: 3/5
As long as Snake 8 stays free of an advertisement while playing the game, it is the best Snake game you can get on WP7 right now.
The gameplay has 5 different speed settings so you can find what you like, and even has a mode where you can pass through the edges of the screen. It functions as your classic snake game and playsÂ pretty well. The controls don’t always work well though and definitely need an option for static (vs the current dynamic) controls. I died multiple times specificallyÂ because ofÂ the controls. We need more options. Also, if the advertisement at the bottom of the screen starts displaying (it isn’t now), I will not at all recommend this game since you will accidentally be tapping the advertisement all the time (note that this did not impact the current review score).
Snake 8 isn’t beautiful by any means. The snake’s head is badly drawn and looks like it was made in Paint. It could definitely use a professional touch. However, Snake 8 looks better than most others on the Marketplace and is currentlyÂ the best choice for a Snake game on WP.
Lasting Value: 3/5
If the leaderboards loaded as fast as any other game, I’d give the lasting value a 4/5. However, leaderboards take a solid 10 seconds to load, and that’s over WiFi… not acceptable. Nevertheless you can kill plenty of time playing Snake. It’s a classic game and very addicting.
