Play A Rihanna-Themed Version Of Snake, For Some Reason

Rihanna Working With Timbaland?
How do you solve a problem like R8? Bin it and start again from scratch is one option.

The outrageous “Bitch Better Have My Money” video has inspired some strange spinoffs. There’s the cartoon parody, the Korn nu-metal remix and now a retro video game version.

For that dwindling segment of the population that remembers life before the digital age, Snake was an ultimate time-waster. Long before Twitter, Tinder, Snapchat and Candy Crush came around to stave off boredom forever, you would play basic-ass video games like Snake, whether it was saved as an app on your trusty TI-83 calculator or pre-installed on your giant, non-internet-connected desktop computer. And now, for some reason, someone has taken Snake and updated it from a prehistoric pile of pixels and blips into a “BBHMM”-themed emoji-blast.

The titular snake is no longer a boring line collecting indistinguishable objects; now it’s a cartoon Rih head dragging along a trail of blood, collecting cash and sacks of money as the “Bitch Better Have My Money” beat loops in the background. The more items you collect, the longer the trail of blood gets.

It is so stupid. But don’t pretend you’re not gonna go give it a test run.
