Maddening PC puzzler Snakebird is coming to mobile, one day
Is it a bird? Is it a snake?
The terrific PC puzzle game Snakebird will be getting a mobile version, says developer Noumenon Games. Just, don't expect it any time soon - "we need to learn the ropes," the studio says.
Over on PC, this is a cute and devilishly difficult puzzler about a bird-faced snake that slithers along a chunky grid, and gets bigger every time it chomps on a piece of fruit.
Things start getting clever when you use your loopy snake body as a platform to reach up to high areas. But then your stretchy body gets you stuck inside a tight spot and you realise that every wrong move can doom you.
The game's got 50 devious levels, and once you start toying with wormholes and spikes and - gasp! - multiple Snakebirds simultaneously, you realise that you'll be playing this game for months.
