App Description

◆ PRESS QUOTES ◆
- "I recommend checking out Grub if you’ve been looking for a fun and contemporary take on the classic Snake game" -- AppAdvice

Building upon its lovable Doodle Grub predecessor, Grub is an arcade-style mobile game that delightfully combines classic snake gameplay with an endearing character, a series of levels to challenge skill and agility, and comic book art by Laurel, renowned French artist and Pixowl’s co-founder.

In Grub, players are challenged to save Grub’s best friend from the bird who captured him all while growing stronger and surviving the dangers and perils of life as a worm. Players squirm through 19 levels and interact and overcome multiple varied obstacles. Each level offers a different kind of challenge, such as eliminating a certain amount of enemies (Hedgehogs or Wolves) or collecting a given number of Apples. Power Ups such as Spikes or Magnet help Grub survive the winding trails of worm life. A survival mode is also available for players looking for just a few minutes of unwinding and relaxing gameplay.

Grub’s gameplay is modeled after the most famous mobile hit game Snake. Combining the memorable concept of addictive gameplay and modernizing it with challenging features and stimulating graphics, Grub is the next generation of the Snake game.
