Snake Pass is a puzzle game where you move around objects and through the world like a snake. Rather than running around the levels like you do in games like Mario games, you have to slither along the ground and coil around poles to reach different areas. The game uses real physics that you have to work with to be able to leverage and coil your way forward.

To complete each level, you need to find three gems that allow you to progress, but there are also collectable bubbles that guide you in the right direction and five hidden coins for anyone who wants a tougher challenge. The controls are tricky to begin with, but once you get used to how the snake moves, you'll be uncovering every level's secrets in no time.
