Snakes On a Motherf**kin' iPad!
Either these press releases are released late or they get lost in the mail or something, but Bulkypix announced a few days ago that Snake Galaxy is launched onto the App Store tomorrow, Wednesday, August 4th.
“The Guinness World Records 2010 Gamer’s Edition has just declared that the mobile version of Snake is the most played game on the planet,”
said Vincent Dondaine, COO of Bulkypix.
“Snake Galaxy for the iPad is beautiful. The design of the 3D worlds is stunning. Different planets all have different types of fun obstacles to pass by, keeping you wondering what’s next. You’ll enjoy yourself for hours.”
Snake Galaxy is a three dimensional version of the classic Snake game, that has players slithering around beautifully rendered 3D planets. Your goal is simple—consume as many jewels as possible before you crash and burn. You direct the snake with your finger, guiding it toward the goodies while avoiding obstacles like giant letters, like on the gorgeous newspaper planet. With each jewel you consume, your “snake” grows a little longer, making it harder for you to avoid obstacles—and your tail.
There are point thresholds you must reach to unlock the next planet. In order to reach those point thresholds, you must eat the goodies in your path as fast as you can. There is a multiplier bar at the bottom of the screen that refills every time you feed your snake. But you must be careful not to let the bar zeroes out. If it does, you will have to start the multiplier chain all over from scratch. There are large diamonds that appear from time to time that are worth big points. Grabbing these before they vanish is critical for making it to the next stage.
You’ll have to cough up $4.99 or €3.99 if you wish to purchase Snake Galaxy for the iPad.
