Snakebird Primer is a follow-up to Snakebird, a super-tough puzzler from a couple of years ago. The Primer edition tweaks the difficulty down a bit to encourage new players in, but retains the gorgeous graphics of the original - a game former PG Editor Mark Brown absolutely bloody loves.

But what do we know? We're just some fools running a website about mobile games. So we decided to give our community of mobile gaming fanatics, the App Army, their hands on the game as well.

You can read their reviews below, but we know what you really want - your own chance of getting the best and latest games for absolutely naught beyond giving us a review.

Well you can! Just join our App Army over on Facebook (make sure to answer the short questions given to you!) and each week you'll have a shot at playing a big game of that week.

And better yet, you can chat about mobile games with other fans of the platform, make some friends, and get some wonderful, stimulating conversation in your life.

Sound good? Then go join the App Army! And come right back to read the reviews of Snakebird Primer!

Don’t be fooled by the colourful (VERY colourful) cartoon aesthetics of this tough little puzzler. Things start out easy enough but soon had me scratching my head for solutions. The open nature of the level select means you can always dip into another puzzle if you need a break from a particularly troublesome scenario, keeping any phones from getting launched across the room.

The controls took a few minutes to get used to and I did find I selected the wrong character more than once, but an easy undo feature meant I didn’t get punished for these mistakes. Easy to recommend for any puzzle fans out there.
