Play OverviewPlay Overview

Sniks (2020) is a puzzle game about guiding colourful worms to matching coloured fruit and food. Each level is a self-contained arena with a number of snakes. Each snake can only consume fruit of a matching colour and they can't pass each other. It poses some head-scratching conundrums that are both appealing to look at and satisfying to solve.

Each snake has two heads so can move in both directions. This means you can iterate your solutions as you edge closer to solving a level. You can also overlap a head with another snake’s body to mix their colours and gain fruits that would otherwise remain unconsumed.

It's a simple challenge and one that doesn't ramp up the pressure. There's no timer or scores. Things get more complex as you progress but that's part of the fun. It can be hard to search for because of its name, so here it is on iOS and Android.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Sniks 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 5 weeks ago.
