Snipes is a game born in 1982 out of the good work of some Netscape engineers.  I liked it SO much back then, that I’ve brought it to Android.  It’s my pledge to make it just as much fun here as it used to be for me back then.  Leave comments on this website and I’ll make it better!  Then stick around; things will get fun fast

Nerd FAQ

  • Black and white is the name of the game.  It was originally played on my IBM XT with a text-only CRT.  My phone is 200x faster and 4000x smaller than that XT.
  • You’re a character on a globe populated with killer snipes and their nests.
