Snake II includes:

  • Game Center including support for leaderboards.
  • 5 original mazes.
  • 9 levels.
  • Original artwork and animations.

You also get the same retro-style widgets that made the first release so compelling, including a clock, signal strength, battery level, and your carrier name even if you're using two SIMs. It's all wrapped up in a nice bundle with exclusive artwork to make it look pretty. How cool is that?

If you fancy yourself a bit of a Snake II whizz or just want some of that year 2000 nostalgia, this is the app – and widgets – for you. You can download Retro Widgets 2 from the App Store for $1.99 now (opens in new tab).
