Well it's the 25th, and the Snakes Outbreak (http://www.snakesoutbreak.com/) is here... and everyone at All About N-Gage is watching the Snakes site go up and down like a yo-yo. We can't help feel the design of a TV station, and navigating through a Teletext/Ceefax system is a bit too ambitious, but there you go. We'll try to get a direct link to the Snakes download for you as soon as possible. In the meantime, why not refresh your memory about Snakes with our Interview with the Producer (http://www.allaboutngage.com/features/viewarticle.php?id=112). Me, I'm just getting some screenshots to finish the review.
Viral outbreak sends Snakes slithering onto N-Gage game decks worldwide
3D revamp of world’s most famous mobile game for free download
January 25, 2005 – From the dark winter depths of the Finnish wilderness, a viral outbreak has begun, with a new generation of Snakes coming to the N-Gage platform. Available for free download from http://www.snakesoutbreak.com starting today, this latest incarnation of the world’s most famous mobile game will infect N-Gage game deck users with that familiar Snakes desire to see how long you can go. Multiplayer games will quickly turn into a slippery session with support for up to 4 players via Bluetooth wireless technology. Players can start their own viral outbreak by sharing their “infection” with other N-Gage owners; a full copy of Snakes can easily be transmitted by Bluetooth connection.
“Snakes is the most famous mobile game ever, so we thought it was entirely appropriate to bring a new generation to the N-Gage platform,” said Pasi Pölönen, Director, Game Publishing, Nokia. “The unique method of viral distribution via Bluetooth, plus the free download, means that practically every N-Gage owner can enjoy the addictive gameplay and upload their high scores to the N-Gage Arena.”
Snakes takes players deep into the interstitial space that exists in between the atoms, electrons and quarks that form matter. This constant struggle between the elements provides the perfect backdrop for 42 levels of intense and sometimes mind-boggling action. Players must navigate each level, searching for power boosts, travel along power paths and stay alert to avoid obstacles. Some levels are double-sided, forcing players to play both sides.
