Boa Constrictor Editor's Review

Boa constrictor is a freeware classic arcade game with the general gameplay mechanics taking their routes from the very classic mobile game, snake. The game, however does not attempt to fit into the “snake clone” market, and does actually add a fair amount to snake, in the form of the level structure, changing from a scoring system to a structured level system. In conjunction with this, they also add something unique to each level, in the form of a maze like structure which you must navigate with the snake (a boa constrictor) and collect the food.

The gameplay of boa constrictor is also fairly similar to snake, just with the massive game additions to the game that it adds. You control your boa constrictor (which for simplicity purposes we'll refer to as the snake) in the game, and must direct yourself through  a maze like level structure, collecting all the food along the way, which varies from level to level. The challenge from the games come from the fact that you can not hit yourself, as in regular snake, and the maze structure of the levels will make it hard for you to get all of the food without hitting yourself, due to the number of tight turns, and the fact that you get longer and longer as you eat more food.

The controls of the game also take after snake, being controlled entirely with the arrow keys, with the command for “go in a direction” being tied to its respective arrow key. There are a few key differences between the way boa constructor controls, and the way snake controls. Mainly, in boa constrictor, you are not always moving, and when you hit a wall (of which there are many, rather than just a box) you will stop, and be able to change your direction from that wall, to move further and further into the maze.

Despite all of these extra additions to the game, the game is nowhere near as difficult as snake is (possibly because of a level system rather than a “play forever” system), especially in the early levels of the game, where it is nearly impossible to lose. Although the difficulty picks up as your progress, the game never really gets particularly difficult, as a stark comparison to the original snake. The art style of the game is better than the original, being fairly interesting to look at, but definitely a large step below anything else of its genre.

Overall boa constrictor is actually a pretty interesting game, bringing a really nice amount of innovation to the classic snake formula, in the form of a level system, and really unique and gripping levels within that which make the game a truly interesting and fun experience while playing through if. If you are a fan of the classic snake games, and would like to see the concept with a little more added to it, this game is certainly a great play, if you are just looking for a good all round game, the game is fairly average, but still enjoyable.
3/5
