This is game is actually a very enjoyable puzzle game ! Do not let the simple looks and description deceive you. Starts of quite easy but by the time multiple snakes eg colors are involved it gets very challenging . At 0,99 cents an easy recommendation '

You control your snake by swiping (took a bit to figure that out, controls aren't clear at first). The goal is to collect all the pellets in each maze-like level. Like with the regular Snake game, you can't pass through your own body. Pellets of different colors change you to that color and let you pass through other colored blocks (so blue can pass through red and green, but not blue). This mechanic turns Sushi Snake from simple "Snake" game to a colorful and challenging puzzle game as one must figure out the correct path to succeed

I also like the minimalist menu design and gameplay presentation. There are four groups of levels and if each has 12 levels like the first one does, then the game has 68 levels. I think that's a nice amount of content and I'm already get stumped in the first section. The other sections up the complexity of the puzzles by adding multiple snakes; I've only played two of those levels, but it seems that the same colored snakes move simultaneously and you can eat other snakes to take their color. So yeah, that definitely makes the puzzles more intricate and challenging

I don't know if the dev plans to support the game with more levels or new features (I could see a level editor working well here) but from what I've played, Sushi Snake is a fun puzzle game with a good chunk of content and I'd recommend it
After playing some more:
This game continues to impress. Haven't made as much as progress as I did last night, mainly because the difficulty definitely ramps up. However I have seen some new mechanics. Once you start dealing with multiple snakes, not only can you devour one to gain its color, different colored snakes essentially act in the same way as blocks. So if your red snake is blocked by a red block, you can lead your blue snake through the block, allowing your red snake to eat through the blue snake's body and continue forward

And the game continues to get more complex from there
So yeah, worth the $1
