Play Snake like it is 1997. This is a remake of the original Snake, complete with dot-matrix display and monotone sounds.
Rewind time and get a dosis of nostalgia that is as addictive (and frustrating) as the original.

Play Snake '97 and be prepared to lose some productive hours.

Simply launch the app, touch a button and start!

Snake '97 features:
- old school controls
- dot-matrix display
- original monotone sounds (bleep bleep)
- 9 original and 3 extra difficulty levels
- Snake 1 and classic Snake 2
- 7 classic game modes (5110, 3210, 8210, 8850 and 3310, 3410, 7110 with Snake 2)
- bonus creatures (Snake 2)
- go through the walls! (Snake 2)
- 5 original and 2 extra labyrinths (Snake 2)
- a high score that cannot be reset (just like the original)

The story behind this game is that my smartphone got damaged, requiring me to revert back to an old phone. Suddenly I knew the smartphone was missing something and the idea for a accurate Snake remake was born.

Snake '97 is an homage to the classic mobile phone game programmed in 1997.

By carefully analyzing the classic gameplay, timing and controls, this Snake '97 remake is one of the most accurate available.

Awesome and classic

Such a good game I love the graphics as it's as if you are playing on a real 90's phone with also optional harder games with walls in the way, I also love the feature that you can choose the phone you are playing on so you can choose a phone like one you used to have. Also my favourite part no annoying ads!! Definitely worth downloading.

The abolishment of the snake game fakes this is a fake bring back the original

This is not the original snake game they make near impossible to collect the coin things because it’s so close to the edge whenever I try to get it I just die it makes no sense at all I don’t recommend this game to anyone it’s terrible unless u get proper arrows or controls so I actually know what keys are up and down so it’s easier to play then I will mark it a 5 star but for now it’s a one star I cry myself to sleep at night because of this game it’s so upsetting that U would take a Mickey out of the snake game this game is a classic from back in the day u have ruined it I can’t believe u done this I’m getting angry real angry you want it u got it right here right now I can’t believe u done this i encourage anyone reading this to start a war to abolish the fake snake game and bring back the real game

Amazing game!

This game is absolutely amazing! I love how the buttons are placed to suit your split second reactions and also how you can switch between being able to go through walls and whether you have mazes or not. I also love the fact that you can change the speed of the snake!

I have given this game a four star as there is one small problem: there is no pause button! I've lost count of the number of times I have had to start again because I've had to answer a message. If the makers of this amazing game added a pause button then it would be absolutely top notch.
