Wow Snake Pass is quite good. I’ve only just played it for the last 45 minutes though, and a good chunk of that was getting that last bonus coin under the bridge at the very start, but dang it’s good to have a 3D platformer-puzzle game that requires actual skill at the way the character controls to do well.
I now have a much greater appreciation for how snakes actually navigate their environment. They make climbing around stuff look easy but it’s actually kind of tough! Several times on my attempt at that bridge coin I’d get myself into a position wrapped around one of the bamboo stalks at the edge and just take a breather before attempting it again, imagining the little snake avatar doing the same thing. I never really considered before that climbing is probably just as tiring for snakes as it is for people.
Grow Home is a good game to compare it to! That’s another game that makes movement and locomotion into something that takes actual effort to do rather than something that just happens when you press a stick or a button.
Also you can change the snake’s expressions. That’s a lovely little touch.
