version 2.1

hey you all,

version 2.1 of Snake Classic is now live on the App Store. this version brings:

  • improvements to controls. the arrows have been brought closer and we have tried to make them as responsive as possible. the feedback from our testers has been extremely positive, saying that they "never" miss a button now. 
  • push notifications. now you will be notified each time there is a new global high score, reminding you to open the app and try beating it. 
  • several other bug fixes, including one that caused the snake to lag on certain devices.
as always, please keep your reviews coming. that is the only way for us to identify issues and fix them so you can have a perfect snake experience.

happy holidays and have fun snaking!

long time no see

hi everyone,

hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. we all know Snake Classic did :)

we started going up in the overall US ranks the day before Thanksgiving and never looked back. the game was in the Top 10 for about 8 days peaking at number 3! and we have to thank you, the fans, the users for your tremendous support and good wishes!

being so visible in the App Store is great, aside from just the sheer volume downloads (will share with you at some point in the future). the game has received some great feedback from you all. we truly appreciate all the reviews, both positive and negative.

about those negative ones: while you were complaining about the controls and lagging, we were already working on a new version that will take care of these issues. and in fact, that version is almost done and we plan to submit it to the App Store today. yes, today!

more on this new version soon.. in the mean time, thank you all again and happy snaking!
