Sneaky snakes sneak out on Android

I know that I said that Snake vs Snake wouldn’t come to mobile devices… Turns out they were sneakier than expected. I’m happy to announce that Snake vs Snake was released today on Android!
Get it here.

After doing some experiment I found that a swipe control method worked really really well for Snake vs Snake so I decided to port it over. All features except for multiplayer with other human players are included.

The game is free but contains ads that you can remove with an In app purchase. So now you can play Snake vs Snake 24 hours around the clock and even if you are on the buss or train.

Checkout the trailer below

Leveled up graphics

Although this game is a tribute to the old classical Nokia Snake that you played on your 3310, I couldn’t resist to implement a few awesome suggestions that I received from a fan. In this updated I’ve revamped most of the graphics in the game and the result was totally awesome. Now the snakes looks adorable and it’s easier to see who is doing damage on the battlefield as each snakes color is used when their bombs explode.

In the update more options are available under settings so you can set how much the screen should shake and if the controls should rumble or not.

Check out the difference in the new vs old graphics below.

New Pew Pew guns only multiplayer game mode

Everyone loves the “gun” power-up in Snake vs Snake. So in this updated there is a treat for you: a new mode called Pew Pew that comes in two flavors either with tail or without tail. The gif below says it all, it’s proper but fun chaos.

A new easier levels have been added and several levels have been made slightly easier as many of you have sent feedback that levels were a bit too hard.

Got no one to play PVP against? No worries, we’ve added AI bots in Snake vs Snake!

One of the first requests from a user was to add AI bots to Snake vs Snake. The idea was added to the backlog and has been there for too long. So on this release the bots was the first thing that was added and it turned out a lot better than expected. Playing against 3 bots is fun and sometimes kind of hard. The AI is pretty good but at times also pretty stupid so it feels like a fair challenge.

3 new levels were also added to single player mode and a few hearts were added on existing levels. One of the levels was designed by Haddicus at Haddicus Games and it’s the hardest levels so far in the game. Thanks Haddicus!

Enjoy the new AI bots!

Details of what’s new in v1.1.3

* Added 3 new levels making it a total of 16 levels.
* Improved: Tweaked controls just a tiny bit more.
* Improved: Added more hearts on certain levels.
* Improved: You can back out with the B button on each menu.
* Improved: Controllers only rumble from bombs and shots if your snake is alive.
* Fixed bug: You cannot back out of PVP mode if has been started a no players join.
* Fixed bug: You couldn’t pause or unpause if your snake was dead.

Screwing up a bit – making a quickfix

Sorry the last update contained a rather massive bug in Snake vs Snake. When you exited from a game the menu became all weird and you couldn’t use it.

To fix the issue I’ve issued a quickfix which fixes the problem but it was based on the release I was already working on so as a bonus you’ll get some extra stuff.

3 new levels have been added to the single player mode most of them are kind of hard. There is also a new feature where certain blocks can be opened if you have the correct key, see screenshot below.

Feedback from players has been that the shot powerup is confusing as a lot of people try to pickup the purple shot. This has been changed now so when a shot impacts it changes to a gray block instead.

I hope that you will enjoy this update.

Details of what’s new in v1.1.2

* Fixed major bug causing the main menu to become scrambled.
* Added 3 new levels making it a total of 13 levels.
* New Feature: Walls that unlocks with keys.
* Improved: The shoot power-up turns grey once it hits a target. That makes it easier for the player to understand that they should not pick it up.

Getting Snake vs Snake ready for Nintendo Switch

I’ve got some awesome news to share with you: Snake vs Snake is coming to Nintendo Switch.
I can’t believe it either but I’ve been working on the Switch version for about a week on the Dev Kit that I received.

Since the game is built with Unity the porting did go fairly smooth but at the same time I enhanced a bunch of things for the PC and Xbox release too.

In this release a leaderboard for the levels game mode has been added. You get to see fireworks if you manage to complete all levels 🙂 The controls have also been tweaked even more to provide the best possible response on all platforms. I’ve also added a few features to make the game slightly easier like not allowing the player to press backwards to run over it’s own tail.

I hope that you will enjoy this update.

Details of what’s new in v1.1.1

* New feature: You get scores in level mode too.
* New Feature: Added leaderboard support for Level mode.
* Improved: Even better responsive controls when using analog game pad.
* Improved: Added a safe guard system to avoid the player from going backwards into it’s own tail.
* Improved: You start without tail in level mode and PVP endless mode, this gives you more options how to solve each level.
* Improved: When the game is over in Endless or Level mode it won’t restart by itself. That way you can review the leaderboard and your score.
* Improved: When you die the score counts down in level mode.
* Improved: Added support for more gamepads and joytsticks on PC.
* Improved: When you quit a game, it now opens the select game mode screen instead of the main menu.
* Fixed bug: Game stats do not reset on PVP mode when you start a new game.

New and somewhat evil levels added to Snake vs Snake

Everytime I get into designing levels it doesn’t take very long until I start creating levels that are ridiculously hard to complete. I guess it’s a result of playing too much Dark Souls. Well so on this release I’ve tried really hard to create some easier levels but in the end most of them turned out harder than intended, sorry about that 🙂

To make it slightly easier I’ve given the player 3 lives and the ability collect more lives on certain levels.
Make sure you try to collect these Heartif you see them on the screen.

In total there are 10 levels that you can beat in the game.

v1.1.0 details:

* New feature: Added 3 lives in level mode, this makes the game more forgiving.
* New Feature: You can collect hearts on certain levels.
* Improved: Added Help button in main menu

New game modes appears in Snake vs Snake

WOOT! Another update for Snake vs Snake so soon? Yeah I know it’s a bit crazy but while working on the last update I had a lot of fun so I decided to put in some more work on this awesome game.

In v1.0.9 for Xbox One I’ve added a new PVP mode called Tail Runner. The idea sort of comes from good old Tron where they race with their motorcycles. In this version you can play between 2-4 players and your tail will just keep growing. This increases the tactical level of the game. For now I haven’t added any powerups in this mode and I think it works very good without them, let me know if you disagree (or agree for that matter).

There is also a new single player mode, levels. In this mode you need to collect all apples to clear each level. If you die you have to restart from the first level. This is probably that will be changed in the future so you at least get some chance to fail a level. Maybe you can collect hearts in the future or maybe you’ll get rewarded with a heart every 5 levels, we’ll see in the future.

In this update the controls have been tweaked a bit to be more responsive on gamepads. I Hope you’ll enjoy this update!

A new bomb appears in Snake vs Snake

It’s been a very long time since the last update was published for Snake vs Snake.

To remedy that I decided to put a bit more love into this game. A new powerup  has been added for PVP mode and it goes BOOOM! Yeah that’s right a small bomb is dropped onto the battlefield and it explodes a leaves permanent blocks. I will also try to experiment with a single player level mode and see how that works but that will come in a future update if it’s any fun.
