Snake is, of course, 'Snake', where you guide your pet reptile round the screen eating the files and avoiding the walls, poisonous mushrooms and his own tail. Every time he eats a fly his tail grows longer. The graphics are very lightweight with all the drawbakcs of BASIC. The sound is continuous although unimaginative, but the game does have a nice attract mode. The control keys are another drawback - 6/7/8/9. Awkward to use. They seem as though intended for use with Sinclair Interface 2, but if so, it doesn't say so. May please younger kids but there are much better versions available. Overall CRASH rating 45%.
