Summary

Taking inspiration from the classic mobile game Snake, Temple Of Snek is a puzzle game whereby you play as Snek and must navigate obstacles, solve puzzles and eat enemies in order to grow longer which opens up more levels. The levels themselves are usually self-contained within a room but they do all join together. Temple Of Snek has a lot of promise already, you will have to tweak the speed settings and that is crucial because it’s not fun playing it slowly or too fast. You have a good handful of hours play already in this early access version and I implore you to try it if you are a fan of Snake, it plays and feels like Snake so it is Snake but Snek.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
