Snake Pass

An action platform game with logical puzzles. It was developed by British studio Sumo Digital. The title is based on a prototype created by Seba Liese during a Game Jam. Snake pass tells a story about the adventures of a snake and his friend, a hummingbird. Together they must find keys to the magical gates that provide magical power to the Harmony Foothills. They are doing it in order to defeat a mysterious intruder who threatens the lives of the inhabitants of the realm. The game takes place in a three-dimensional environment and the player takes control of the aforementioned snake. The protagonist’s movement was recreated in a pretty realistic way. It means that, for example, he cannot jump, but instead he crawls along the ground, wraps around objects and swims. All of these actions must be used in order to defeat various obstacles and to find well hidden collectibles. In some situations the friendly hummingbird helps the snake by catching him by his tail and transporting to seemingly unavailable places.

Snake Pass for Xbox One is an action puzzle platform game developed by British studio Sumo Digital, the creators of LittleBigPlanet 3, Forza Horizon 2 (Xbox 360 version) and many other games.

Plot

The title tells a story about the adventures of a snake named Noodle. Together with his friend, a hummingbird named Doodle, he must find the keys to the magical gates that provide magical power to Harmony Foothills, because the lives o the inhabitants of the realm became threatened by a mysterious intruder.

Mechanics

Snake Pass is a three-dimensional game in which the player controls a snake. The movement of the creature was recreated quite realistically and because of that he, for example, cannot jump. Instead of that, he slowly crawls along the ground, wraps himself around various obstacles and he swims. During the game the player must think like a snake. For example, he cannot simply pass through a narrow bridge over a cliff, but he can wrap himself around it in order to get to the other side. The same goes for many other situations where, for example, one must wrap himself around a bamboo pole or around various constructions. In addition to that, the friendly hummingbird is sometimes helpful – he can catch the protagonist’s tail and move him to inaccessible places. In addition to getting through various obstacles, Doodle must also find many well hidden collectibles. There are fifteen levels to complete in the game.

Technical aspects

The graphics, similarly to other platform games, is vibrant and colorful. The soundtrack of Snake Pass for Xbox One was composed by David Wise – the creator of music for many games, including older titles like Wizards & Warriors for NES and new games like Yooka-Laylee.

Misc.

The first version of the title was created during a Game Jam event organized by Sumo Digital. The prototype was created by Seba Liese, who later became invited to the studio. There, together with the rest of the crew, he created the final version of Snake Pass.
