App description: Play Snake like it is 1997. This is a remake of the original Snake, complete with dot-matrix display and monotone sounds.

It is as addictive (and frustrating) as the original, play Snake '97 and be prepared to lose some productive hours.

Featured in many other rankings in the rest of the world.

Simply launch the app, touch a button and start!

Snake '97 features:
- old school controls (or choose for big easy controls)
- original sounds
- 9 original and 3 extra difficulty levels
- 4 classic game modes (5110, 3210, 8210, 8850)
- 1 XL game mode (play snake full screen on your device)
- full support for iPad
- a high score that cannot be reset (just like the original)
- (optional)international leaderboard using Game Center

The story behind this game is that my iPhone got damaged, requiring me to revert back to an old phone. Suddenly I knew the iPhone was missing something and the idea for a accurate Snake remake was born.

Snake '97 is an homage to the classic mobile phone game programmed in 1997.

By carefully analyzing the classic gameplay, timing and controls, this Snake '97 remake is one of the most accurate available.

Have Snake fun!

The developer,

Wow, nice one! Like the idea especially because I had one of those Nokia phones that looked and played exactly like that. If there weren't so many snake games on the app store, I would think about buying this one, but for now I think I can make do.
