In recent years we are seeing how the mythical game of The Serpent is back in fashion, and is that the classic games they resist dying. Bets such as Slither.io or HMD Global’s movement to resurrect La Sepiente for the new Nokia 3310 confirm that users continue to appreciate – and a certain melancholy – for them. retro games.
Google has just given great joy to all lovers of lifelong games with the inclusion of The Serpent as integrated game in version 5.8.48 of Google Play Games, the latest update of its hub games from the Google Play store.
Snake is back, pre-installed for all Android
The Serpent has been included as default game, silently, in the last hours to all users from Android. To be able to see it, it is only necessary to update the application pre-installed on Android, Google Play Games, to the latest version available.
Snake It is not an exact clone of the Nokia game, obviously. This time we have a colorful surface, a funny snake with eyes chasing apples – a vegetarian snake, friendlier- and sound effects consisting of tones that are played by every apple eaten.
The movements are recreated sliding fingers on the screen and it goes without saying what to do sharp turns 180 degree is all a challenge. At the end of a game, that is, when the snake gives a head butt with a wall or his own body and he stays half lela, you will see your score accompanied by your personal record.
The changes in Google Play Games add to the great renovation of the games center that we already reviewed six months ago, when the first integrated games were included (Cricket, Pac-MAN and Solitaire) that, in addition, allow you to play games without the need for an internet connection.
Google Play Games joins the new Material Design
The news that we have seen in the update of Google Play Games are not limited to the sum of a new game: we also have a renovation, this time a lot more cosmetic, from its interface.
The Google game center thus joins the long list of applications that are making the transition to Material Design, with more surface dominated by white, shorter buttons and no fill color, squares with more rounded corners and a new typography that doesn’t quite convince everyone.
