HMD Global, the new home of Nokia phones, have brought the iconic game of snakes back from the dead for Facebook Messenger. Snake for Messenger is built on Facebook’s instant games cross platform giving you a consistent experience across any device you use with Messenger. One big difference this time around is that you can play it with a group of friends.
This addictive game from the 90’s has retained most of the original gameplay. You maneuver the snake around the screen, devouring apples and bugs along the way. The more you eat, the longer and faster you get. Just be careful not to eat your own tail. Snake for Messenger has 6 levels with different layouts to beat. You can challenge your friends to a high score which is accessible either one-on-one or as a group.
‘The Snae game was the most popular game in the history of Nokia phones, in fact the true origin of mobile gaming can be traced back to a Nokia handset released in 1997. To this day it has remained hugely popular, not only because it carries a strong sense of nostalgia but because this was the first ever mobile gaming experience for many consumers. The opportunity to partner with Facebook, the social media platform that has single handedly defined the social media landscape, is an incredible opportunity. We were truly excited to work with them to bring back Snake in a modern format to a global audience. We hope in its new format it unites people across the world and brings as much joy to players as it did the first time around.’ – Pekka Rantala, Chief Marketing Officer of HMD Global.
