ADDICTING AWESOME GAME!
Okay, so I this app is totally amazing! It is very addicting and I remember a few years ago when I would always play it online at school on the computer. It was very fun back then and then I discovered the app and downloaded it. The app is pretty much the same except a bit easier to control actually. Although I rated this four stars, because as many people have said, I think it may have a small bug issue with pausing in the middle of the game which is annoying. But I do like the small things such as you can choose the snakes skin, you can choose whether you wish to play offline or online with real ppl, and also that there aren't a HUGE amount of ads. I think I do have a suggestion though which I have seen other people say that, the game should have maybe something where you can get stamina or points when you grow your snake and use that to maybe buy like accessories for your snake like hats and stuff and also maybe not only choose your skin which is already an option but maybe costamize your own custom skin. So overall this app is great and in my opinion I think the bug problem should be fixed but I will be keeping the app and I recommend downloading it because it is a really awesome and addicting game and hopefully the creators/developers look at this and maybe consider some of mine and other suggestions for the game and also fix the bug issue. 😉😁👍🏼
An app in decline
This is a game that started out as innovative, fun, and family friendly. I truly enjoyed it and had a blast playing with my kids. For whatever reason, it appears that the author/company has stopped doing anything to maintain the playability of the game. I've noticed the performance of the app steadily decline over the last two months with no communication from the company indicating they are trying to fix the problem. The "live" mode where you play against other players has now reached the point where it simply doesn't work 95% of the time. If you're lucky enough to get through a short game without the app totally crashing, you're likely frustrated by the games inability to keep up with gameplay. The screen will frequently lock for seconds at a time... and then comes back to life and shows you that you died during the freeze. I'm actually very surprised that there aren't performance requirements for games in the App Store that remove unsupported or poorly performing apps. At this point, this game is entirely unplayable, and I would recommend removing it from the store until the company steps up and fixes the performance problems. Unfortunately, this is yet another review regarding the same issues, and it appears nobody will be fixing anything in the near future. Don't download this game and support a developer that doesn't live up to their responsibilities.
Fun but Creepy
This game was super fun at first, like really addicting. I'm not sure what everyone is talking about the glitching and lagging because that has never happened to me before while using the game, but perhaps it's just because these people are not connected to wifi and are using data. ANYWAYS, the real problem is the creepiness of the game. I thought it was all fine and games, and then i found a really good strategy of circling around tinier snakes and trapping them when i'm big enough. That was slightly creepy, but okay since i was in control of it. But i soon discovered that many others used this strategy as well, and would trap me when i was smaller. It was disgusting and creepy, especially cause you know there's no way out but they're just gonna keep entrapping you until your face finally hits their tail and you die. What's worse is that the game doesn't go back to the home screen for a few seconds after you die & turn into little bits so you can actually see the snake that trapped you eat up what used to be you. After that the snakes all just seemed super creepy and weird to me. I deleted the app like 5 months ago, and just re downloaded it today to try it out once more. Still superrrr creepy! Just deleted it again, can't get over it!
Addictive yet lacking
I have been playing this game since the beginning, on an iPad with high speed wifi. I refresh the app before playing to avoid any lagging issues.
Since the past update I've been experiencing the same issues as other reviewers. When I speed up to either avoid or cut someone off I will die but clearly I shouldn't have since there head touched me first. There is also the issue of dying before your head touches someone while a gap is present. And lastly my biggest pet peeve, when I am the biggest to third biggest in a room I have a 50% chance of loosing control of my snake. When I'm trying to turn or move, the app is unresponsive. It doesn't matter if I'm running or not.
Please do what you can to fix these problems. Myself and others would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time.
Update: I’m still having the issue of loosing control of direction. When I try and turn the app is clearly forcing me to go straight. My snakes head will have a slight vibration trying to break out of the forced straight. Sometimes I can regain control the first time but after that I can’t. I’m not sure what is causing this but it only happens when I am at the top of the leaderboard.
Awesome game lags sometimes thou and addictive
It really is an awesome game but it does lag a bit but you can get through the lag without dying. I do thinks it’s a little bit weird that you eat your own kind (which is cannabinol) but I can I can get past that. I’ve made it to number 1 on the leaderboard and that just tell you how addictive it is. I also really like that you can make your own kind of snakes but I have a suggestion. I think when you make your own snake you should have the choice to change the eyes, add those shield things, and/or change the mouth otherwise it is a great game and a fun way to spend time. I also love to listen to music while playing and that’s a reason why I like that there is no music coming from the game😃.I’m probably rambling on 😅 so I’m going to stop typing but this really is a great game and I encourage anyone looking for a fun way of spending to buy this game(I don’t know if this is a game or app so ya). I’m done typing know sorry for rambling on I just like typing and writing reviews to give feedback. Sorry I am going to stop typing know.
Not a way to calm
By mia henandez
I played this game to calm my score was 90,009 and a little tiny worm came and killed me I do not think this is a way to calm and it is a bad gam to the names have bad words so I think they need to make a change to this game I think it is just ugh so if your trying to calm down and what to play this game to calm I would say no to it and play a more calming game and just ignore every detail and do not down lode if you are a kid because the name tags have bad words so I think the author of this game needs to not let people have bad word names and I think kids what to play this game but there parents read this and then they say no because it has bad words in the names and some kids play this and they are the ones who have the bad word names in it and probably they change the name before their parents come and I think you should not be allowed to change the name so there parents can see the kids who have the bad word names and can get grounded this game is not made right And I suggest parent LISTEN CLOSELY I do not whatnot you to down lode this for your children because it has bad word names well I have to go thanks for reading remember DO NOT DOWNLOAD FOR THE KIDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This app is amazing. But the reason that I'm not rating five stars is because there is a bug in the app. Once, I was second place, and as soon as five minutes of being first, the bug kicked in. The bug is when you are in the middle of playing and,suddenly, the game will not let you control the snake and you will start going fast. Soon enough, you will either run into the barrier or crash into another snake. Also, I have a couple of suggestions.
- you should be able to costomize your own snake. You should be able to choose what pattern, color, and if your snake has a decoration.
- when snakes crash into the barriers, there should be food left behind for other snakes to eat as if the barrier were also a snake.
- there should be levels and xp. Every level you pass, you unlock more things to costomize your snake ( this is only if you do my first reccomendation )
I hope that you will read this, fix the bug, and listen to my recommendations. Thanks!!😜
too many ads!
to start off, this is a great game! besides the fact that there are so so so so many ads. i completely understand that being a free app, they need to make money, but 98% of the times you die, an ad comes up. they are not for inappropriate games or apps but they just come up way too often. sometimes for concert tickets but when you try to close out of the advertisement it takes you to a website, or would not register the fact that you want to close it. many times i have to restart my phone because of the annoying, laggy, monotonous ads. on a complete opposite note is when you do close the app and refresh your phone, your nickname disappears. this is annoying because with all of the ads i mentioned earlier, that means CONSTANTLY having to retype my nickname. which gets very annoying. one last thing i have to say is that when you play online it’s more laggy and s l o w then you can imagine. all in all this app is 2 stars because of the poor ad quality, nickname problem, and the problem with playing online.
I have complaints and suggestions.
By picky on apps 🤔
So, this app is very addicting, and I absolutely love it! But... I have some major complaints. First of all, every time I defeat a large snake, and I go to eat the remains, a lot of other people go and steal the remains, and I don’t get a lot of health because I don’t really get a lot of the remains. That has always annoyed me😒. My suggestion for you so you can maybe fix this is, when someone defeats a snake, only they can eat the remains. It’s crappy every time that happens.
Two. When I want to create a slither, I want to add all of the colors, but it doesn’t let me! I understand that your snake has to start out with a certain length, but this minor detail is really crappy. My suggestion for you so you can fix this is, if someone wants to add colors when they’ve already made it to the capacity, just make the color columns smaller. Please! It would really make me change my rating to a five star.
Thanks to designers, producers, and developers, for taking these complaints and suggestions into consideration. Bye!
Addicting but Irritating
I'm only giving this game 3 stars because of how fun it can be, sometimes. Otherwise those game would get 1 star and that would be generous. This game is completely addicting, but there are many flaws to this game. First, the same thing others have stated: when you are controlling your snake and a competing snake touches you first your snake will die instead. Second and the worst thing, y'all need to update your server or something. Almost every time I play on the wifi part of the game, no matter how fast the download and upload speeds are, the game gets to be so jumpy and it skips like crazy. This skipping makes it to where the game will freeze for a bit and then it will start again and you will be quit a ways from where you were. This freezing a lot of the time causes me me to die without having any control. Y'all seriously need to fix these flaws before know one plays this game any more.
Awesome game but I just need you to see this
By Bear 2.0🐻
This game is so fun. I started playing this game way more than my other favorite game. But there are a couple problems. First, when I’m play and I die and I have to restart, I wish that you could have two lives at least. Like you could make it so that when you run into someone for the first time you only lose half of yourself. Then no matter how long you are the second time you “die” you have to restart. Also I think that to restart you should have the option to pick the place you want to start at. And I wish there was a background music and sound effects. And last thing I wish you could pick out a face and some accessories for your worm or snake thingy. But those are just ideas for the game. I think this game is amazing either way!!🤩😁😉
Used to be good
This used to be one of my favorite games to play. There was just a small learning curve, and the object of the game is different from most other games in the App Store. But for the last few months performance has been terrible. The game frequently locks up and or you lose control of your snake and it crashes and dies. Pretty frustrating since the game is based on how long you can keep your snake alive. You can work hard for five or 10 or 15 minutes, and then lose control of your snake due to a game issue. Then all that time growing your snake is wasted.
Hopefully Apple will force the developer to fix the app. If not, this is a golden opportunity for a new developer to step in and make a better version of this game. I definitely would be willing to pay good money if this game would work properly. I’ve already paid once, but that’s OK, I got a lot of fun in return. But this game is no longer fun because of the performance issues. I would not recommend downloading this app in its current condition.
This game is really fun to play but it takes a really long time to get really big and maybe you should make it so you can pause the game and no one can attack you when the game is on pause if you can make it so you can pause it would be even better of a game but also please fix the lagging of this game but this game is fun to play also I would really like to have it not freezing when your playing the game to I would rate it higher if I could one more thing on some of the ads it will not let me puss the x and take the ad away so I have to exit the game and go back in the game please fix it so you can exit the ads it may because I'm playing this on a iPhone 7 but also can you please make it so you don't have to pay real money to remove the ads
Once Great, Now Virtually Unplayable ☹️
I used to enjoy this game very much, but I haven't been able to play multiplayer without crippling lag for at least a few weeks now. This is most definitely not an issue with my wifi, but with the game's servers. I guess the devs prefer to spend the money this game has made them on other things than actually supporting the game.
Edit: By my count, they've now cut the multiplayer servers available down to 3. I watch when my niece & nephew still occasionally try to play, hoping the devs may have stepped up and made improvements, but the lag seems worse each time. It's difficult watching the kids' frustration as they try to play what used to be their favorite game. The lack of support for the game also shows in the increasing number of ignorant, hateful, and inappropriate user names being allowed to slip past whatever filter or moderation system they have/had in place. I had to explain to my niece yesterday that "white power" wasn't superhero or magic related. 😣😑😔
By pastel pink dino
I love ❤️ this app but sometimes it is SOOOOO slow!!!!! It pauses in the middle of the game causing you to lose!!! And even if you don’t touch another player sometimes you die anyways!!!! But the most annoying thing is that there our adds in-between EVERY SINGLE ROUND. Most of the game is spent watching stupid adds or playing demo games you don’t even want to play!!!!!!!!!!!!! I understand that it helps you make money 💰 but it is SOOO annoying!! I want to play a game, not watch adds!!!!!😡😡😡😡 please at least try and fix the other things!!!!!!!!!!!!!!🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩AND sometimes it even crashes the whole game with a FULL. WIFI. CONNECTION. PLEASE try and fix these annoying bugs 🐜 and glitches📱😭😭😭 but other than that I think the main idea 💡 is a GREAT 👍🏻 game, it’s just the glitches kind of ruin the game!!!
Got some complaints
Hello. My name is Gemma. I have some complaints that need to be considered. My first complaint, there are two ways to play, online and against A.I. When you play A.I, it is way too easy to become the biggest snake on the board. But when you play online, everything is glitchy and slow. This makes it almost impossible to get big enough to survive. My second complaint, there is only a certain amount of space on the board. This means that if you go to far, you run into the red, so you die. It would be better if the board was ENDLESS. That way you don't have to worry about running of the edge. Another thing is that the red only looks like a glitch on the screen. It makes it look like more land is loading. So people tend to keep going, so then they die. I have one last complaint. Your name can only be so long. I have a very long last name, so I can’t type it.
Thank you for taking the time to read my review. I hope there will be some serious updates in the near future.
FIX THE D*** LAGGING!!!!!!! Makes game unplayable
By Flick n freckles
Awesome game when it works. Which hasn't been any time this past month. As soon as another player is around it starts to freeze,pause then u shoot forward. So if u r trying to dodge u r screwed!
I have a new iPhone with plenty of space, I use wifi and I have the highest level internet speed from comcast. My husband works on computers and checks all the speeds constantly. he is ocd and even has where we can check the speed by the min. So the lagging is not on my end.
!!!!!! DEVELOPERS, Fix your servers!!!!!
They r not upto par with the amount of traffic. If it doesn't get fixed I'm deleting both mine and my kids who wants the ads removed. I told her not unless they fix it. I'm not gonna pay $$ for a broken game and no one else should either. So as of February 2018 I would not get this game. Wait until u see the developers updates saying that they fixed it. It is so bad I almost threw my iphone more than once. Do not download!!!!!!!!!
I love this game and how you can now go offline and customize you’re snake, but recently it’s gotten so glitchy that I can’t even play, I get killed by snakes no where near me, the game play doesn’t last long because of the glitches making me watch 5 second ads after every game that are genuinely longer than the actual game play. It’s getting on my nerves. I download this app for game play not a constant repeat of the same ads
UPDATE: I honestly have no words for this game anymore. I used to love it back in the day but I can clearly tell that times are changing. The amount of glitch deaths I have is more than the actual game play deaths. I see snakes I’m trying to kill go through my body then some how kill me. It’s awful. I’m a dedicated fan of this game and I’m tired of watching the effort and actual game play go to crap. I just don’t understand why the game makers would rather they’re game fade out of fame instead of working on how to make it better and more popular.
Interesting social insight
So, Somehow I ended up with this game on my iPad. So obviously, I played it. Easy enough: You start a small snake and eat the food to become larger. The more you eat, the larger you become. There is enough space for everyone to move around. Theres enough "food" for everyone to grow. All CAN be well enough. But... once you add that by getting another snake to hit you so they die and their remaining dots allow you to grow quicker... fabulous! Predatory behavior sets in. Scavenging sets in. It is how humans behave. Even when there's enough for all... some will become greedy and want what you have. Very interesting.
As a game, it’s frustrating as hell bc of lag. My snake is suffering from erratic, spontaneous spasms that force me to run into other snakes. I will be deleting soon if its not fixed
Addictive, lag prone, buggy
This game is fun to the point of being addictive. Kudos to the creators! The concept is spot on!
However, the lag becomes frustrating, and there appears to be no rhyme or reason... no matter your size, location on the board, etc. The lag will result in your death, repeatedly. I am running a broadband, high-speed connection with 60MPS, so it's not my data speed. I see the problems at all times of the day/night, so it's not a peak period. I've deleted and reloaded the app as well, with no correction.
As for bugs, you can begin to see the trouble when the snakes no longer move in flowing lines and instead begin to erratically move. Snakes and dots will also suddenly appear well within the margins of the screen, sometimes right in front of you. If you receive a call while playing on your phone, or jump out of the app mid-play, the app will lock up and display an empty hexagon playing background for a period of minutes to hours. Sometimes, it will suddenly stop, boot you out of the game, and you start over again regardless of what size you were when it stopped.
Parents, beware the ads. A few of them were not kid safe. Saw ads while playing this game I've not seen on other games. There is an option to pay for ad free. It would be worth it.
....it's plagued with errors. The biggest issue is that the game screen routinely - 7 out of 10 times - locks up and you lose control of the character. The touch screen controls are also quite buggy. The frustrating thing is that it happens just as your character gets large enough to start taking control of the competition, then BAM; your character starts slithering straight into his fate. Now, I can't restore my purchases or change the joystick; when I do, the entire game locks up. Fix this or many your customers are rallying to send emails to each of your advertisers - Mobile Strike, CSN, and the others - to warn of the pending exodus. The 10/06 update didn't do anything to fix it.
Fun, but A LOT of flaws
By #Gabytaless wag
The game is super fun but its really frustrating when you play online. If your internet is really good it will still lag. I have died soooooooo many times because of the lag, and its soooo frustrating. And you sometimes die for no reason whatsoever, I mean for a second your all calm and then BAM!! some guy come and you try to kill him and he makes some weird move and you die, but you weren't close to him you were like 5 meters away and you still die for nothing. Now Im gonna talk to the creators, FIX THE STUPED LAG, MINECRAFT HAS A BILLION PEOPLE IN SERVERS AND IT STILL DOESNT LAG. Is it that you dont care about the people or are you just LAZY please FIX it.
If your one of those people that like to be mad that it makes you wanna throw away your phone or your tablet then this is the games for you.
Really FUN but some little problems
I think this game is really fun and challenging especially when you want to get on the leaderboard but there is still a few things you could fix. 1. I think that you should only be able to go fast for about ten seconds because when you just go fast you kill others right away even if they don’t want to get the remaining. 2. I don’t think we should be able to see the people eating up our remaining just because I think it is awkward watching that. 3. When I was trying to have the adds removed... well I got them to remove but in the middle of the next game I was playing it kept say remove adds and stopping my game. I wanted to let you know so the game could get better and I can rate it 5 stars😀.
BEST GAME EVER
By It needs stuff😐
I have actually made it to first place three times but I'm usually in third but there's like 3000 million players playing at the same time. I think so there I am is again anyone complete and it's easy once you get the hang of it it's something that you can challenge yourself with. Slitherio will is the best game ever I deleted it for a little while and I stopped playing on my phone but now I just got it again and it's like all day phone. There's only two things, are they worms or snakes? And how do I not been to other words if their surrounding me they're I need to make something for that ? Any other way so that I have is my favorite game and you should go download it right now in the App Store!
