Snakes are fascinating, terrifying, and adorable creatures that come in all colours and sizes, making them the perfect protagonists for a game.

Let’s take a look at the best snake games and games like Snake on Switch and mobile.
Snake Pass – Switch
Snake Pass is an adorable 3D physics puzzle platformer starring Noodle the snake and Doodle the hummingbird. Their mystical home Haven Tor has been disrupted and they must return it to its former tranquillity. Use Noodle’s slithery body to navigate levels in a way that only a snake can!
Snake Game – Switch
Sometimes, you just wanna relive the simple joy of playing Snake on your Switch, and Snake Game provides you with just that. Enjoy the timeless mobile game in four different modes – classic, retro, snake on steroids, and snake master, and try your best to beat the high score.
Snake It ‘Til You Make It – Switch
It’s time to unleash the snakes! Take on solo obstacle courses or fight against other raging reptiles in a snake battle royale. Customise your snake, snack on as many apples as you can, and become the ultimate snake champion!
Slither.io – mobile
Agar.io kicked off the massive boom in .io games, where you compete against players across the world to become the biggest cell, or in the case of Slither.io, the biggest snake. Circle around smaller snakes to destroy them, absorb their remains, and become the longest snake in the arena. It’s way less gross than it sounds, we promise.
If you want some free cosmetics to use in-game, check out our Slither.io codes guide.
Snake ‘97 – mobile
Another pick for fans of classic Snake is Snake ‘97, a mobile game that doesn’t just emulate the game, but also emulates the brick phones we used to play on as well. The developer came up with this idea when they had to switch back to an old phone of theirs while waiting on smartphone repairs, and realised that Snake was missing from our new devices. Experience the first two Snake games with their classic dot matrix displays and monotone sounds.
Gravity Noodle – mobile
Control your snake as it completes obstacle courses in the sky! As the name suggests, this noodle is fighting against gravity to stay firmly wrapped around the bridges and ladders in the clouds to avoid falling to its doom. Physics-based hilarity will ensue.
