The simple game of gathering pellets with an ever-moving, continually growing line that can’t back over itself is set to return next week as Snake Rewind. It’s a revamped version that marries the classic gameplay with a wide range of cutting edge trappings, similar to power-ups, an in-game store (obviously), social media integration and the titular “rewind” feature, which gives you a chance to rewind the snake after crashing.

While Snake has roots that extend back to gaming’s formative days in the late ’70s, most are familiar with it now thanks to the mobile port made by Taneli Armanto. It was an fixture on Nokia telephones after it was presented in 1998, and is at least partially responsible for kindling the present-day standard interest for mobile gaming.

Armanto designed Snake Rewind in a cooperation with the Finnish studio Rumilus Design. It’s coming to iOS, Android and Windows Phone gadgets on May 14. The game is allowed to download and contains in-application buys.
