Competitive online munch-'em-up Slither.io may be flavour of the month on the App Store right now, but it's only the latest in a long history of snakes in mobile gaming.

The first, and still very much the best, is the monochrome beauty we all wrangled in a time before apps - the titular Snake, from Nokia's imaginatively-titled Snake.

Here's why we'd trade an iPhone running Slither.io for a Nokia 3310 with Snake any day of the week.

We all love slither.io, right? I mean, what's not to love about a game that involves scooting around the screen, eating as much as you can, and trying to get as big as possible?

It wouldn't be surprising if we saw other developers jumping on the bandwagon, and we've come up with five major games that we think could benefit from taking a leaf out of slither.io's book.

The 5 best updates in Apple's Apps for Earth campaign

Posted by Ric Cowley on April 21st, 2016

With its recent Apps for Earth campaign, Apple has partnered with the World Wildlife Fund and a handful of developers to help give something back to the Earth.

What this means in practice is that participating apps will donate all of the money made from certain in-app purchases to WWF, and there's a bunch of new content being added to games just for the event.

The new content is only available until the 24th of April, so with that deadline looming, we thought we'd pick out the best updates to focus your time on while you can.
