12 Games Like Snake Pass

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.
 

These games offer a similar experience or are about a theme that Snake Pass addresses. Also, if you want to play a game like Snake Pass but don’t have PC, PS4, Switch or Xbox One, these are a good alternative.

Snake Pass is in These Lists

In addition to the similar games listed above, which have been linked to this game specifically in the database, you may find games with a similar theme to Snake Pass in the following lists:

Unusual Locomotion

These games offer worlds you explore in unusual ways. Maybe it’s hard to put one foot in front of the other, or maybe you get a chance to climb and jump athletically. These games put you in touch what it’s like to move more easily or more difficulty than real life.
 

Commit No Violence

While a significant portion of video games focus on combat and competition, these titles offer a less aggressive way to progress and win. None of these games enable or require the player to cause harm to another living thing -- even Mario's merciless campaign to stomp on every Goomba he meets bars him from this list. Or then there's catching and selling fish in Animal Crossing that rule that one out.

Many of them are aimed at children and families, but you'll be surprised how many explore deeper, more mature themes in their narratives, or require just as much skill as a fast-paced first-person shooter. This means there's plenty of offer for parents who might lack the reflexes (or interest) to survive a round of Fortnite.

We've focused on the games you might not expect to be played non-violently here, but you can find the full list at Non-Violent Games Of the Day curated by James Batchelor.
