One of the most popular game in the history of mobile phones is the classic Snake game that ruled the world of Nokia feature phones and later came to smartphones in various versions. And now Nokia is officially bringing the fun of this classic Snake game on your smartphone and social media.

Nokia collaborated with Facebook to bring the Snake game in the form of AR (Augmented Reality) on Facebook smartphone app with the help of Snake Mask and Snake Real World filters.

You can play it anywhere and with the help of Facebook Live integration, you can also broadcast your gameplay live to the Facebook news feed, allowing your friends to join you in the game.

Nokia Snake Game on Facebook Camera

The brand new Snake Mask on the Facebook Camera uses the front-facing camera of Nokia smartphones running on Android™ OS or any Android smartphones of other brands along with the iOS running devices to allow users to turn themselves into the iconic Snake character and reacts to the motion of the player’s face. While the Snake Real World uses the rear camera of the smartphone for the fun.

To celebrate the release of the updated Nokia classic, comedian and YouTuber Matt Keck, the man behind the accidentally hilarious viral sensation “I’m a Snake” which received 23 million hits on YouTube, tested out Snake on Facebook camera. Matt has recreated his own viral hit, this time using the Snake Mask filter to show off the brilliant new features.

Pekka Rantala, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President of HMD Global said:
The world famous game snaked its way back into people’s hearts at MWC in 2017, when we announced Snake for Facebook Messenger. It was designed for a new social generation; fans could invite friends to play and share scores making it even more playable than first time round. This was the first time in Snake’s history that it went onto a universal channel, rather than a device preload, and it gained 121 million players around the world.

Now we launch an even more immersive experience to fans by allowing them to be the snake itself and eat the apples with filters available on Facebook camera – here at HMD Global we are bringing the much-loved gaming icon to a new AR era.
As mentioned above, the Snake Mask and Snake Real World effects are available universally on the Facebook camera on all Android and iOS devices, not just Nokia Android smartphones.
