If you're as old as me you'll remember when the game Snake was super popular the first time around. And that lasted for a good few years as the game came pre-loaded on all Nokia phones I think. Snake 3D runs along the same concept apart from things have developed in the graphics department a bit over the last 20 years or so.
Free to download from BlackBerry World and available for all BlackBerry 10 devices, Snake 3D is certainly a great way to not only kill some time, but also to do a bit of reminiscing if you used to play the game in the good old days.
Along the lines of the original game, but now in 3D, you control the snake who must move around the board and eat the frog (green cube). As you progress your snake becomes longer meaning that the game gets slowly harder and in addition to not being able to hit the edges of the board, you must also not hit the snakes own body or it's game over. The whole purpose here is to just get the highest score possible and you'll be pleased to know that with this one you can hit the ground running as it doesn't take much practice.
Controlling the snake is achieved with screen gesturers to the left or right, but as you'll see in our brief hands-on video all is explained before you start.
The only downside to the game is that it has no sound or music. Fingers crossed this will be added a future update as I can see this one sitting on a lot peoples BlackBerry's and getting used on the commute to work etc.
Give it a go and let us know what you think?
