Snake Color Hunter iPhone Game Review.
Gather ‘round, gather ‘round all you Zuma fans! A new game wants to challenge your aim, dexterity and precision under stress. And that game is Snake Color Hunter. There are no promises that this game will blow your mind or that you’ll even keep it around for more than a day. Snake Color Hunter is the game that you’ll have to decide for yourself if you want it or not.
How to play
Just like any Zuma-type game, you need to shoot differently colored balls at similarly colored balls that form the snake. Aim to match three of the same colors to take them out of the snake before the row of balls reach the mouth of the snake.
To aim and shoot, you don’t need to drag the cannon around the board. Just tap anywhere on the screen in order to shoot a ball in that direction. The cannon will autorotate in that direction and release the ball. The catch is that your aim needs to be very precise. The ball needs to break through the other colored balls in the row and not simply attach to them, or no matter how many you get lined up of the same colored, they won’t explode and vanish from the snake.
The game doesn't integrate GameCenter, OpenFeint or any other social media. It's pure, straight-up, one-level, survival-mode game play.
Graphics and sound
The one thing I really liked about Snake Color Hunter is the sound. The background music really complements the jungle theme that’s running the show in the game. The graphics seem to be a bit retro for my liking, but if there’s one thing I cannot get over is the animations in the game.
The row of balls move rigidly, there’s no real flow to the snake. Everything seems to move in a coordinate-like system, jumping from point A to point B in a split second, rather than nicely flowing through the snake.
But what mostly disappoints in Snake Color Hunter is the lack of innovation. The gameplay is linear, there are no powerups, there are no twists, no turns, and no levels. I can’t seem to find something that will clearly differentiate Snake Color Hunter from any other Zuma-type game in the AppStore. Nevermind the rigid animations! Nevermind the sluggish shooting style! Give me some innovation! Show me that Snake Color Hunter can make a difference!
