The creators have put up a YouTube video giving a sneak peak into the upcoming Snake Rewind game. Best part, each level has multiple fruits for Snake to collect.

The original game allowed only one fruit to be collected at a time represented by dots on the screen and the game got over if the snake touched its own tail or the surrounding wall.
