If you're part of Generation X or a Millennial, there's a good chance that the first mobile game you played was Snake on an old Nokia phone. Now you can relive the nostalgia of monochrome and push buttons in augmented reality with the Facebook camera.
HMD Global, the company behind the current iteration of Nokia phones, has developed two augmented reality experiences for Facebook's platform. There is, on the one hand, the snake mask that adorns the faces of the users with a huge pixelated snake mask.
The other AR experience is called Snake Real World, which introduces the classic game in its user physical environment.
"Now we start an even more thrilling experience for fans by allowing them to be the snake themselves and to eat The apples with filters on Facebook camera – here at HMD Global we bring the popular gaming icon to a new one AR era, "said Pekka Rantala, chief marketing officer and executive vice president of HMD Global, in a statement.  The first reboot of the Facebook Messenger game took place at the annual Mobile World Congress in 2017. It was the first time that the game was available on a channel other than a device preload to millions of players worldwide.
Given this success, it only makes sense to test the AR waters with the popular game to see if its stamina can be used in the fast-growing mobile virtual world.
