SSSnaker: The Snake Gets Stronger Too!
The first mobile game I ever played, and taught my younger brother to play, was the iconic Snake II game. It was easy enough to play. You guide the snake towards a blinking dot and then worry about how to maneuver the snake within the box as it keeps getting bigger. My brother soon moved on to a more advanced game. I, however, took my sweet time with it.
SSSnaker, seemingly inspired by the simple gameplay of Snake II, added one more characteristic. What if the snake gets bigger and also stronger? What if the snake had bullets and added weapons, with a set of aliens and monsters to defend against in order to clear levels? This is, in essence, SSSnaker. Taking cues from the old-school snake game, Habby added their own bullethead-like feature to it.
It’s easy, it’s fun
The plot is simple. The single-player game evolves through the point of view of a snake. There are levels to clear with a virtual gamepad that lets you control the movement of the snake. Monsters show up and as you advance through the levels, bigger bosses pop up, ready to deplete you of your energy.
However, there are weapons too. The player can select weapons after each level from an option of three. The combination and selection of the right weapon will often determine whether you will be able to beat the aliens. The only thing to keep in mind is to never take a hit on your snake’s head.
It gets better
The gameplay is crisp and engaging. The levels are easy to play even if you are not a serious mobile game player. The rules are simple enough for you to begin, yet the game engages you appropriately through the graphics and music. Also, the onslaught of aliens grows bigger and harder to kill as the levels progress. Each level upgrades the bosses by just a little and, of course, there are tricks to get ahead with specific maneuvers.
Currently offering up a whopping one hundred and fifteen levels, the overall difficulty for each level naturally advances as you ascend. Also, as you start to progress through these levels, you realize there are certain tricks and combos of weapons that will be useful.; this lends the game a hint of the strategy. The different attack modes required to beat different monsters keep gameplay fresh and fun. This also entails RPG elements as well as attack and defense attributes.
Keeping it simple
SSSnaker has sharp, interesting, and brief levels that are not stretched more than necessary. They are not really difficult to navigate once you get the hang of it. This might be the reason it had nearly three hundred thousand downloads in a day, since its release in March. The secret seems to be simple: the use of remnants of a much-loved classic game, with an added flair of roguelike elements.
Something old, something new
If the old Snake II game was a souvenir of your childhood (as it was mine), SSSnaker will likely be your jam in adulthood. Even if you have given up playing ‘that old snake game’ a long time ago, nostalgia is powerful. Get ready to get hit by it as you explore SSSnaker. It has the old classic feel to it but with a modern flair.
Is it Hardcore: Sure, it’s hardcore by being simple enough to play and enjoy. However, that does not make it boring.
