If you are a millennial, there is something that you will remember from your childhood. And that is none other than the Snake game.
As a child, I used to play this game on the mobile phones of my parents. These were the days when smartphones did not exist, and the images took longer to show on the desktop computers than you think.
Apart from the cartoons that I could watch on our analog television box and the songs that would play on the boombox on the streets, playing the snake game was like joy to my soul.
But as I grew bigger, the world started growing smaller. There was no time left for me to play my favorite snake game. Eventually, everybody shifted to smartphones and wireless networks that have much more interesting things to offer.
But the child in me craved to look at the digital snake maneuvering through the small screen on the phone. And I did not have to wait too long.
Why? I soon found the rendition of the snake game. This was the Google Snake.
