For me, my first cellular phone ever, was in fact a Nokia. If the same happened to you at some point, you defintiely remember playing the famous snake game on your phone. It was simple, you used your directional pad, or number keys, to move the snake around on the screen where it was contained by death walls along the edge of the screen. The goal was to get a high score, eat as many black dots (isolated pixels) as you could without running into yourself, or a wall.
Nokia kickstarted the whole mobile-gaming scene back in 1997 with this simple, yet addicting game. Now you too can have it on your Windows Phone!
