Snake Rattle 'n' Roll
Released in 1990 by Rare, ltd. Snake Rattle 'n' Roll is a game with moments that make Battletoads look easy. The game starts off innocently enough as an isometric platformer with an interesting take on platforming, even if the controls are awkward. As the game progresses, the traps become more devious, and the game makes you wonder whether this is a cynical exercise on the part of Rare. It's as if the programmers thought they were clever for inserting as many traps and steep hills as possible in the later stages. The pinnacle of these traps culminates in the last area of the tenth stage, which has been affectionately nicknamed the "Stairway to Hell".
