Gameplay of this Windows 8 snake game app:
Just like the original, this Windows 8 also stands up to the good gameplay mark. It has got a really good gameplay. There’s nothing too complicated and no sudden twists in the game. All you have to do is control the snake movements and eat the apples (which are dots) on the playing board, while avoiding hitting any border around the board or hitting itself.
