You Can Play Snake on King's Cross Granary Square Fountains

By Leon Hurley on at

The fountains have not only been made into a playable game as a fancy art thing, but something that anyone who turns up can have a go on using their phone as a controller.

To do so you'll need to download the Granary Squirt app and visit the fountains between 5-8pm when the game is playable. Using the app you can then log into one of the sets of water jets and use your phone's tilt sensor to steer a 'snake' around, dodging obstacle and other players.

It currently supports up to eight players and this is apparently only the first game developed for the fountain, although there's no word what might be next.
