The old favourite of the caterpillars eating the apples has been done many times but there is always room for new versions if they are done well. This one has great graphics, super fast play and options for one or two players over about 20 levels. You will need to be an expert player to reach the top. Your serpent needs to eat a number of items on each screen to progress. What look like carrots, or maybe chilli peppers, make your serpent grow and make the play more difficult but on later levels cups of tea(?) appear which can be eaten without effect. One player action is challenging but the game really comes into its own in two player mode where great fun can be had trying to outrun and outscore your opponent. A familiar theme but some quality programming makes this one worth adding to your collection.
