If you’re old enough to remember Snake , this game will come as a bit of a nostalgia trip. Instead of a snake, you have a party of heroes. You add to the snake by picking up new heroes along the way, and try your best to keep your party intact. Like the game that inspired it, you have to avoid obstacles, such as walls, or randomly placed objects. And then you have enemies to contend with, ranging from rats and spiders to archers and knights. Your heroes attack once they’re in range of the enemies, butgetting close enough to them to take a shot means you also come into their range, putting your party at risk. To minimise the risk, you can level up your leaders over time. And as you play, you earn tokens to exchange for boosted vitality, swiftness, or attack power. And then all you have to do it take down your enemies, collect the gems and try to avoid crashing unceremoniously into a wall. It’s as addictive as the game that inspired it.
