*** Reviews for Snaked ***

"If youre looking for a great traditional game made fresh by new modes of play and awesome graphics, you wont want to miss having Snaked on your iPhone." -AppGirlReviews.com (9/10 stars)

"...a modern iPhone/iPod Touch app that is just as addictive as the original." -TheiPhoneAppReview.com (9/10 stars)

Snaked is a takeoff of the classic Snake game but with a new, enticing and challenging twist. In Snaked, instead of only 1 type of object there are three - for example, a green rat adds 1 length to your snake, a red rat adds 1 length plus puts your snake into reverse, and a gold rat adds 1 length but is worth double the points of a green rat. The quicker you eat the rats the more points you gain but be careful if you run into a wall or yourself -- its game over! In the end when you buy Snaked you are getting two games for the price of one.

Snaked gives you a lot of features for under a buck.

Includes:

* Two Games (Snaked and Classic)
* Local and Global Scores
* Three Speeds (slow, medium, fast)
* Three Choices of Controls (swipe, plus, tilt)
* Three Environments (Desert, Forest, Swamp)
* Two Objects (Rat and Apple)

Snaked is the first game from Broken Thumbs Apps - more on the way!

Hi everyone, this is Scott from Broken Thumbs Apps, the developer.

Just wanted to say I hope you have a chance to check out Snaked, which we think brings many refinements and improvements to the classic game Snake. For more information, please also check out our YouTube video: http://bit.ly/Vb3Y9

Our second app - an original, reaction-based game - is in the app store review process, so we hope to have an update on that soon. As always, your constructive feedback and comments are appreciated, so we can improve with each release. Thanks!

Thanks for the welcome, Devilishly Good and Wegmans! As I said, we are a new developer, so all the support/constructive feedback we get is helpful.

Although it's just our first week in the app store, we're finding that if you are not one of the big names or lucky ones, independent developers like Broken Thumbs Apps might develop solid apps but can't reach its audience easily. That's why the TA forums are a great resource and are really appreciated. Thanks!

Review of Snaked by The iPhone App Review - 9/10

Hi everyone,

Broken Thumbs Apps is happy to announce that Snaked just received its first review from an independent third-party iPhone app review website. The iPhone App Review gave Snaked a 9 out of 10, and their detailed review, "Snaked Hatches New Fun with Old Game," can be found here: http://bit.ly/KOmn2.

We hope that as Snaked gets more and more exposure like that, iPhone users will find out for themselves that Snaked is a solid casual game for the iPhone, as well as one of the best updates of a classic game for the iPhone. If you haven't already, click here: http://bit.ly/6nrme to try Snaked today!

And, don't forget about the contest for October!
