Snake is returning on smartphones and it sounds terrible

The Guardian reports that Snake, the game that spawned thousands of cases of repetitive strain injury when Nokia ruled the phone world, is making a comeback:

Snake Rewind will be released for iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices [on May 14], with new features including the ability – purists, look away now – to “rewind the Snake to continue the game even after crashing” as well as new power-ups and levels.

Rumilus Design has not announced details of how it will charge for Snake Rewind, but the mention of a fruit store on its website – “boosters and items can be upgraded and purchased, using fruit that you collect while playing” – hints that the game may be freemium, using in-app purchases too.
