Can't believe it's by the same guy who coded Nokia's Snake. Worth a download for that alone.

Had a go, very nicely done, nice graphics and stuff. But its still 'Snake'. You know i love my retro games but I was never a huge fan of Snake, way too boring. Be good if this had extras the same way Pong was revitilized as Arkanoid.

Seems to be some sorts of power ups, i'll give it another go later

Awesome! Interested to see how this plays! So many snake clones... glad to see the original creator get his hands on making an app version of it!

Tried and my snake went random directions no matter the control setting. Glitch?

Same problem. Tried both tap and swipe control schemes, but the snake has a mind of it's own. Hopefully this is addressed, because I love the overall presentation.

This game is excellent! On the surface it is a standard old-school Snake game with a retro vibe but added to the basic gameplay is a layer of upgrades and power-ups to keep you playing longer in addition to a Prince of Persia-esque rewind mechanic that activates when you die. There are no-IAP's that I could find but there seems to be room for them in the store and I imagine that purchasing currency for upgrades may be made available as an option in the future. Overall, this is top-notch retro action.

Note: My controls were reversed at the startup. I changed to swipe in the control settings and they seem to be working fine now.

Controls aren't very responsive. Too bad
