The Nokia 3310 (2017) has finally arrived in Malaysia and it will go on sale on the first week of June. For those who prefer to get it online with free delivery, you can place a pre-order today through 11street.
Everyone’s favourite feature phone, the Nokia 3310 is back and it’s now available in Malaysia. The throwback device was announced a few months ago at MWC 2017 and you can have it as early as next week.
Last week we announced that Snake Rewind, the game of classic Snake reborn for touchscreen devices, was on the way and now it’s finally available for download.
From the creators of the original Snake, Rumilus has made the game available as a freemium title with the game free to download and you can either collect or purchase Fruits to spend in the in game “Fruit Store” for power ups. The best part is, if you happen to crash you can just rewind and get back on the ball. Graphics are quite minimalist but up to date with a snazzy soundtrack to boot.
It also looks like there will be a healthy mix of old and new features, with missions you can complete in the game as well as visual modes that imitate Snake from past and present, so if you fancy playing Snake on a Cathode Tube screen or exactly the way it was on the Nokia 6110 you can do just that.
We’re sure most people still remember the old glory days of playing Snake on their Nokia phones, in all it’s monochrome glory. Those days are long behind us, the times when you were stuck with whatever software was on your feature phone, and almost always there would be Snake.
Now the game is making a comeback for touchscreen phones thanks to Nokia engineer Taneli Armanto who was originally responsible for putting the game on the Nokia 6110 and developer Rumilus Design for a fresh take on good ol’ Snake.
If you say you’ve never been addicted to Snake then you’re lying. Back in the day when everyone had a Nokia phone, Snake was the game to play. Actually, it was the only game to play on your Nokia phone.
Now you can waste time like its 1997 again with these remake versions of the ridiculously simple yet addictive Snake game first seen on Nokia phones complete with dot-matrix display, monotone sound effects and original old school controls.
The Snake game is available on Android, iOS and Windows Phone albeit from different developers. It’s free on Android (ad supported) and US$0.99 on iOS and Windows Phone. There’s a free trial version on Windows Phone app which is almost like the full paid version so it’s virtually free. It’s not like Malaysian can purchase any apps from the Windows Phone Marketplace at the moment anyway.
