All About the Snake Game

February 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 198

Snake Game is one of the most popular games in the history of gaming. This game is simple and can be understood easily by a person belonging to any age group. It provides hours of challenging fun to its players and does not involve any complex interfaces.

The player controls a small snake which grows as you feed it. Once you eat the food you encounter along your path, new food will appear. The player should guide the snake towards the food and protect the snake from hitting the walls or from hitting itself. The walls of the game are made by its boundary and the boundary may change in each level. As the player advances, the snake gets longer and in some games faster simultaneously. As the snake lengthens, chances of it hitting itself rise and the game becomes more challenging. Some levels do not have a boundary and this makes the game much easier to play.

Once the game starts, there is no way to stop the snake and it will stop only when it hits itself or the boundary.

As the snake game gained popularity many variations of this game emerged. A colored version of this game was introduced and this became a hit too. The classic version of this game is the most basic one in which the player simply eats food and grows longer. Bonus food items are given periodically and the user can take those for gaining extra points. The game ends once; the snake hits itself or the boundary.

Other versions of this game feature levels and fixed number of points are to be achieved in a level and then the user is promoted to the next level. The speed of the snake increases in the subsequent levels and it gets tougher to collect the food as well as protect itself from hitting the boundary or itself.

3-D versions of the game feature a snake in a colorful background. The graphics of the game are realistic and give the player a feel of the environment in which he is playing.

This game was originally launched in the 1970s by Gremlin but gained huge popularity after it was incorporated in Nokia handsets. The simple way of controlling the snake via the number keys on a Nokia handset have greatly helped in skyrocketing it to popularity and it is surely a game which can keep one busy for hours engaged in challenging fun.
