Snaked - New and Improved Classic Game in the App Store for only 99 cents!
Hi, this is Scott from Broken Thumbs Apps, a new iPhone app developer. We just released our first game into the iTunes app store, with more on the way soon. Details for our new game follow:
Do you remember the classic game Snake that you'd often play on your cell phone or calculator? "Snaked" is a takeoff of that classic game but with many improvements and refinements. In Snaked, instead of only 1 type of object there are three - for example, a green rat adds 1 length to your snake, a red rat adds 1 length plus puts your snake into reverse, and a gold rat adds 1 length but is worth double the points of a green rat. The quicker you eat the rats the more points you gain but be careful if you run into a wall or yourself -- its game over! In the end when you buy Snaked you are getting two games for the price of one. There are other Snake-like games out there, but ours features more customizable options and clean/stable gameplay.
Snaked gives you a lot of features for under a buck.
* Two Games (Snaked and Classic)
* Local and Global Scores
* Three Speeds (slow, medium, fast)
* Three Choices of Controls (swipe, plus, tilt)
* Three Environments (Desert, Forest, Swamp)
* Two Objects (Rat and Apple)
While there are other Snake-like games out there, given the clean/stable gameplay, two game modes (Snaked and Classic mode) and number of customizable options available, we think it provides high re-play value for 99 cents, and we hope you agree.
Broken Thumbs Apps is committed to our fans. We want to know what we can do to make our games better.
