App description: A puzzle game inspired by Snake and Sokoban.
Move the snake step by step in the grids and eat all the other animals. Like Snake, every time an animal is eaten, the snake will grow a grid longer. Eat all the animals and reach the exit to win.

* Rules from the classic games, easy to understand, 5 seconds to get started.
* Mouse, frog, mantis, elephant, turtle, five different animals.
* There is also a finale element, not an animal.
* 50 hand-crafted levels, each is unique, no similar experience.
* Free hints to ease the difficulty.
* Combined with Chinese Paper-cut and Chinese Shadow Play, the original fresh Chinese art.
* Minimalist style. The whole game has only 4 buttons.

I want to publicly thank metalcasket for agreeing to a petition submitted by Roger-NL and me to feature this game here as well as Roger-NL for making his initial petition.

For the record, I have no affiliation with the developer of this game. I discovered this game by chance while playing another logic puzzle game called R-Ray made by the same developer.

I was intrigued by SnakekanS because of its very clever take on the classic Snake game mechanics. Some of the features that made this game a standout compared to other Snake clones are:

- Tight space constraints. Many puzzles often require very clever and efficient negotiation of tight spaces to execute the solutions.
- Unique solutions. Most (but not all) levels have unique solutions. For the few levels with different solution paths, they are mere trivial variants (with very few exceptions). A difficult feat to accomplish for games of this type.
- Clever mechanic modifiers. The game continually introduces new mechanic modifiers to modify the snake's behavior each time it devours a prey. These modifiers make for some very clever solutions in the game's later puzzles.

Like Roger-NL, I am also stuck in one of the game's later puzzles. I am stuck on level 45. Sadly, I have not been successful in locating the game's developer to ask if this level is bugged (possible but unlikely). I can explicitly confirm that Level 1 to Level 44 are all solvable. Thus, if any TA forum member is willing to try out this game, please kindly post your progress here.

I've been taking the liberty of checking the puzzle game releases in the App Store daily for the past few months now, so I've had this downloaded for a while and I did very much enjoy the early levels, nice to see a thread get made for it! It's got some cool ideas.
I'm only at level 23 since the little spare time I've had has been split over playing several games, but I'll see if I can catch up to y2kmp3 to check out level 45.

Thanks, TheGreatEscaper, for coming to my rescue! Looking forward to your take on this particular level. Also, have you discovered any way on how to contact the developer? The developer has no website and has no email address anywhere for contact.

As you implicitly implied, the earlier levels are largely setups for the later levels in the game where the mechanics truly begin to shine when they all work together.

Update [5-Aug-2017]: Finished game! I can now confirm Level 45 is solvable. Arrgh... Can't believe I overlooked a path that turned out to be the solution. Very clever solution. I can also confirm Level 46 to Level 50 are all solvable as well so that there is no bugged level in the game. Solution for level 50 is absolutely brilliant.
