A Virtual Boy version of the classic action puzzle game “Snake”. In it the player maneuvers a snake consisting of a line of squares through a rectangular playfield, trying to eat randomly popping up dots, which lengthen the snake by an additional square each, while avoiding collisions with the playfield’s outer border and the snake itself, which gets harder as the snake lengthens. The longer the player’s snake when a collision occurs, the longer the resulting score.
“VUE Snake” offers four modes of play:
- Normal Mode: Try to eat as many dots as you can before the inevitable collision happens.
- Marathon Mode: Like Normal Mode, but you play three consecutive rounds.
- Double Mode: Like Normal Mode, but you play two snakes, each controlled with one of the two D-Pads.
Each game mode can be played in three different variants, “Slow”, “Medium” and “Fast”. Depending on the variant, the speed of the snake, as well as the points each eaten dot awards the player, change. The game supports SRAM to save highscores for each combination of mode and speed. Saving, however, works only on emulators.
