Snake Rattle 'n' Roll is a classic two-dimensional platformer game released in 1990 by Rare Ltd. for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive. The game follows two snake siblings, Rattle and Roll, on their quest to eat enough snacks to reach the top of a Rainbow Arch at the end of each level. The player takes control of both snakes but can switch between them at any time.

In order to progress through the levels, players must make their way around platforms and obstacles while avoiding enemies such as Crabs and Gorillas along the way. Snakes have four movement options - crawling forward; sidecrawls (left or right); jumping; and rolling - with each movement having its own advantages and disadvantages. By eating certain items like rulers or boomerangs, players can gain extra points and power ups. Eating a certain type of snack will transform Rattle or Roll into an Anaconda which has the ability to climb walls and ceilings although these abilities come with a loss in speed making it more difficult to catch snacks before they disappear.

The game features four distinct worlds: Lugersbad, Moki World, Wastelands, and Geezer's Castle each with its own unique visuals, enemy types, traps and puzzles for players to solve in order to reach the goal at the end of each level. The levels can range from easy to challenging depending on difficulty settings chosen by the player making it ideal for gamers of all ages. There are also different endings depending on how many snacks have been collected throughout the various levels before reaching the Rainbow Arch making it ideal for replayability even after completing all levels once.

Snake Rattle 'n' Roll is still noticed today as one of most memorable games for that era with its cartoonish graphics and humorous storyline capturing hearts among gamers over three decades later – earning it placement on multiple lists across publications such as IGN's top 25 SEGA Genesis Games of All Time Additionally, character models from Snake Rattle 'n' Roll were used in other games developed by Rare Ltd., including Banjo-Kazooie proving that this gem still holds a special place within popular gaming world...and hearts!
