Paul van Dijk of CirkelSoft wrote in to make us aware of a game he is developing that will soon make its debut in the iTunes App Store.  Python is a "snake game" that follows the typical formula: navigate a playfield, dodge obstacles, grow yoru snake by eating things along the way, don't run into your tail, etc.  While there is no shortage of these titles in the App Store presently (there are 10 or so), Python appears to bring a richer experience than most, featuring a variety of large scrolling playfields with animated obstacles and clean looking graphics.

Python is accelerometer / tilt controlled and features vibration feedback when played on an iPhone.

See the developer's gameplay demonstration video:

UPDATE: We have just received word that Python will retail for $2.99 in the App Store.

    There doesn't seem to be anything that makes me want to download this and delete my other snaky app. Unless it's free of course :)

    It seems unique due the larger play field and due the fact that the snake doens't die every time it touches an obstacle. I'll probably buy/try it.

    I'd love to see a "shootout" between the snakey games that are out there now as I really like these kinds of games and am a bit at a loss about how to choose one!

    Has anyone tried Snacky Snake -- released yesterday? From the AppStore screens Snacky Snake also appears to have a realistically modelled snake.

    I'm still partial to Anaconda, but thankfully I got it when it was still free. It's simple, but really, I want this type of game to be simple.

    What I like about Anaconda is that it plays pretty quick and keeps the gameplay fairly close to the original formula. About the only difference is that it has speed-up and 'reverse direction' pick-ups.

    I bought it and I like it. Nice simple game. The game play tilt remind me of spore. But, how come there's no scoreboard?
