SUPER COSMIC WORD SNAKE is a fun but difficult word-building game. The look is a very retro, arcade style that is reminiscent of days gone by. The game itself works much like the old Centipede arcade game. Unless someone is very unsuccessful while shooting at the snake, the snake will always get eliminated before it reaches the shooter. The challenge for the word crafter is to keep the game going for as long as possible. The strategy of entering longer words that take more hits to be eliminated may backfire in that it takes much longer to think up those words from the given letters. Short words often keep the game going longer.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
