All right. Confession time: I may have done some gleeful and energetic arm-waving when I found Snake '97. It's not even that Snake is that good of a game. (I am telling you a lie;, it's a superb game.) It's that nostalgia factor. Just look at the interface — look at it.! Those Nokia buttons! That radioactive yellow-green interface! The wonderfully clunky movements of the line we call a "snake"! It's just like the olden times! This is where mobile gaming started, kids. You should grab this app with both hands and marvel at the humble roots of Angry Birds. And, you know what? It's STILL fun.
