Make sure they don’t bite you!
The History of Snake
Snake hails from the late 1970s and was an adaptation of the arcade maze game Blockade (1976). In that game, players trailed a line behind them and had to survive for as long as they could without hitting any obstacles. The game mechanics were simple and easy to copy, leading to a series of similar games appearing for PCs and arcade consoles in the late 70s and early 80s, such as Surround, Worm, Nibbler, and Tron. The game eventually faded into obscurity for a while, until it was released as preloaded entertainment on Nokia phones. This brought Snake to a much wider audience and caused a new boom in popularity.
Types of Snake games
There are lots of different version of the game, and you’ll find a range of them on our website. Not sure where to start? You can read a bit more about the various editions below.
Classic Snake games
The original games were monochrome editions and featured large pixels. Online versions of classic snake usually play on these features of the arcade original, featuring 2D graphics, large pixels, and simple color schemes. Some versions even reproduce the appearance of the old monochrome mobile phone screens.
Multiplayer Snake games
In these games, you can compete against other online players. Cut off their path and force them to bump into your snake’s body to reduce them to glowing pips. When you eat lots of nibbles, your snake will not only grow longer but bigger and fatter as well. Try to become the largest serpent in the arena and rise to the top of the leader board. We offer a number of popular .io editions such as Slither.io, Worms.io, and Santa Snakes. For more, check out our complete overview of .io games.
There are also games with Snake-like mechanics in which you trail a line behind you that can be used to cut away sections of the arena and add them to your own territory. You’re safe inside your color-coded zone, but become vulnerable whenever you exit this area to seize territory. Make sure you don’t get intercepted! This subgenre is sometimes referred to as Chomp games, and our popular game Paper.io 2 is a good example.
