Gameplay

Similar to Snake.io, the aim of the game is to grow!

Fans of Snake.io, I have a game you’re not going to want to miss! Snake Rivals is a PvP game that is extremely similar to Snake.io but with power-ups and way better graphics! Interested? You should be!

Snake Rivals begins with you, an egg, that has just hatched into a field. The field is full of apples and you need to eat them in order to grow – the more apples you eat, the bigger you’re going to get. But be careful, there are other snakes around trying to do the same thing… Make sure you don’t get killed by avoiding crashing into other snakes. Snakes will cut in front of you in order to make you crash into them, so keep an eye out!

Before the gameplay, you will get 4 power-ups to choose from. They are:

  • Fireball – this shoots fire at other snakes to make them smaller
  • Ghost – this makes you small and barely visible to other snakes
  • Magnet – this picks up apples around you as you move
  • Magnet Blast – this picks up a whole bunch of apples from one place

My personal favorite was the magnet as I was able to grow a lot faster.

Graphics

The graphics are brilliant!

As I said, the graphics for Snake Rivals are a huge upgrade from Snake.io. Not only can you customize your snakes, but you have emotes that other players can see when you win and the power-up buttons are very in your face so you don’t forget.

Customizing your snake is super fun, and I liked making mine colorful to stand out from the others!

Music & Sounds

The music is very upbeat and loud during the gameplay, this keeps the casual feel to it. As you collect the apples, there are clicking noises that get fairly annoying. Or you find them satisfying. There’s no in-between.

Controls

Control by dragging your finger!

To move your snake, swipe in any direction. I automatically did this on the right-hand side of the screen, but I felt like using the left-hand side allowed me more control of my snake. Which was a good thing, because the power-ups and speed boosts sit perfectly on the right. The power-up controls last for about 15 seconds before they run out, but there is always more to collect that are hovering around!
