Sumo Digital's charming 3D puzzle platformer Snake Pass was a surprise hit when it released last year, with its innovative control system earning it a lot of love from critics and fans alike. To celebrate the game's first anniversary, a free update has been made available today that, among other improvements, includes a new mode.

Arcade Mode tasks you with eating as much fruit as possible within a time limit, racking up as high a score as you can. There will be leaderboards for each level, giving Snake Pass a little extra longevity. Completing a regular level will unlock the Arcade Mode version.

It's nothing mind blowing, but it's a nice addition that gives players something more to do.

Will you be slithering back to Snake Pass to try out Arcade Mode? Coil up in the comments below.
