I would agree. Interesting variant on the traditional snake game.

Yeah picked this up a couple days back and having a good time with it. The type of characters you get to play makes for some interesting strategy while keeping the snake formula intact.

Only downside is that some characters are just easier to play with more than others.

Glad to see this got written up on the front page! I've been playing it for a couple of weeks now and love it. It's simple to play with solid controls but definitely gets more challenging as it progresses, the IAP is utterly unnecessary unless you have zero reflexes (and why are you playing a Snake-like game if you have no reflexes?), the character art/design is great, and even the music is fun. Great little time-waster.

EDIT: As Exact-Psience points out above, probably the only outstanding issue is that the characters could use just a little bit of balancing. Right now I do best with the "Balanced" guy, the "Melee" guy, and the "Heavy Armor" dude. The faster ones should be more fragile, of course, but they seem just a tad TOO fragile, since they're fast but not fast enough to outrun bullets.

Really love this game, The way that Magic Cube used the legendary classic 'snake' and added guns was a great idea. In the future I'd love to see new characters or possibly a feature where you can create your own character and upgrade them that would be amazing.

9/10 from me!!

I'm glad I noticed this topic, I missed seeing this when it was on the front page, this is great fun! I like how the guys you rescue have different attacks eg some are snipers, some close range, some wide range, some are healers. Also there are enemy 'snakes'! Great fun for 59p.

So this is a better version of nimble quest without crappy IAP? Why haven't more people played?

Weird. I was just thinking this last night when I finally decided to give up on the endless, pointless grind that is NQ.

And now today, here is a new post.

Oddly enough, if you take the comments in the NQ thread in aggregate, what you have is essentially complaints about the IAP and lack of a point to progressing.

Perhaps there just isn't anything to complain about with CoS?

I know I enjoy it, and went back to it last night...
