Cosmic Snake doesn’t have much to do with the classic game save for giving you a snake to control, although this one is more interested in digging holes and dropping ceilings on things than eating small bits and getting bigger.
In Cosmic Snake, you want to dig holes in all of that heavy, heavy dirt hanging over the heads of the creatures down below. Once you’ve dug enough to chop out a section of ceiling, it will come tumbling down, taking out as many creatures as the player can manage to catch in one go. The more the player gets, the better their score.
Folks, naturally, aren’t keen on being crushed, so they tend to move around. They’ll do this at varying speeds that can be chosen based on the player’s needs, from high-speed struggles to catch anyone to a pace that moves in turns, offering plenty of time to consider your next move. Either way, Cosmic Snake offers an ever-moving puzzle where the most talented hole-digger can rack up those high scores.
