You Can Now Play The Legendary Game That Is 'Snake' Without A Nokia

No, it's not an April Fools joke, it's '90s nostalgia at its peak.

For at least the next week or so, Google Maps has rolled out Snake -- the stuff of legend -- to iOS and Android users around the world.

It's had a bit of a facelift since the old Nokia 3310 days. Firstly it's in colour, and secondly, you're a train -- and sometimes a bus -- not a snake.

WARNING: It is super, super, super addictive. Think Candy Crush but 50,000x worse.

To play, you need to make sure that you have the updated version of the Google Maps app, then, simply head to the menu and select "Play Snake".

Choose your city -- Cairo, São Paulo, London, Sydney, San Francisco, Tokyo or the entire world, and away you go.

The aim is to pick up all of your passengers. (Image: Google Maps)

The goal -- for those of you who fell off the face of the earth in the late '90s or early noughties, or who didn't exist yet -- is to pick up the passengers without ramming the edge of your screen.

Each passenger you pick up, the longer the train gets and the harder it is to move around the screen.

If you don't have the app don's stress, you'll find the very same game at the bottom of the standard Google homepage.

Or, if you're like our 10 Daily news reporter Viki, just pull your old-school Nokia out of hiding and play the original because let's be real, it's probably still got battery.
