3D revamp of world's most famous mobile game for free download.
From the dark winter depths of the Finnish wilderness, a viral outbreak has begun, with a new generation of Snakes coming to the N-Gage platform. Available for free download from http://www.snakesoutbreak.com starting today, this latest incarnation of the world's most famous mobile game will infect N-Gage game deck users with that familiar Snakes desire to see how long you can go. Multiplayer games will quickly turn into a slippery session with support for up to 4 players via Bluetooth wireless technology. Players can start their own viral outbreak by sharing their "infection" with other N-Gage owners; a full copy of Snakes can easily be transmitted by Bluetooth connection.
"Snakes is the most famous mobile game ever, so we though it was entirely appropriate to bring a new generation to the N-Gage platform," said Pasi Pölönen, Director, Game Publishing, Nokia. "The unique method of viral distribution via Bluetooth, plus the free download, means that practically every N-Gage owner can enjoy the addictive gameplay and upload their high scores to the N-Gage Arena."
Snakes takes players deep into the interstitial space that exists in between the atoms, electrons and quarks that form matter. This constant struggle between the elements provides the perfect backdrop for 42 levels of intense and sometimes mind-boggling action. Players must navigate each level, searching for power boosts, travel along power paths and stay alert to avoid obstacles. Some levels are double-sided, forcing players to play both sides.
