Everyone has played Snake and Breakout, but what if you played a game that combined both genres? Aarjvark changed the formula and released SnOut, a game that combines bouncing balls and breaking bricks with the graceful movements of a snake. Does this unorthodox combination work, or is there a reason why it hasn’t been done after all these years?
Just like in the classic Nokia game, players control a snake that can move in four different dimensions. The world this tall character develops in is small, surrounded by many small blocks that mean certain death as soon as you touch them.
To make matters worse, SnOut introduces a ball that constantly bounces around and shatters the blocks in its world. Each time the ball bounces on the hose, it gets bigger. The aim of the game is to make the ball bounce against the hose as often as possible without it colliding with anything.
It’s a simple principle, and it works – at least in theory. The controls work as you remember: Players can rotate 90 degrees at the touch of a button. Plus, the ball bounces at a steady pace, just like in Breakout and Arkanoid, and works exactly as you expect.
However, SnOut’s world is too small to make a serious impact. It’s too easy to get in the way of the ball, leading to the end of what could have been a great run. Although the world gets bigger and bigger as you play, the long version of the snake makes it a bit difficult to move around. While players can quickly move on to another round after failing, it’s not always satisfying. The whole set looks awkward, and a bigger field would have helped a lot.
This can also be exacerbated by the coins that appear on the battlefield. Although they serve the same purpose as snake apples, they tend to appear in the most inappropriate places. More than once a room appeared in a dead-end street, surrounded by blocks, with no way out. When this happens, it creates a sense of injustice, as if the title was not developed properly.
Each race is scored based on the number of points scored, coins collected, blocks broken and time. Coins unlock additional palettes and block styles, and points collected can be added to a monthly and historical leaderboard. At the time of writing, a number of players are already ranked. So the replay value of the game is high for those who want to be the best.
The combination of the SnOut with the breakout and the hose is good in theory, but the execution leaves much to be desired. There’s just not enough room to move, and the awkward layout means the race will end sooner than expected.
This SnOut test was performed on the PC. The game was downloaded for free.
