In 1983, Tim McVey claimed the highest score ever achieved on a classic video game. The game in question was Nibbler, an obscure title that allows for marathon sessions of 40+ hours. Now in his forties, and with his title bested by another player, Tim undertakes the challenge of reconquering the mountain that is Nibbler. “While Man vs. Snake owes a certain thematic debt to The King of Kong, it is its own film, one whose universal appeal should go beyond the ranks of video-game lovers to anyone who understands that primal need for greatness.” – Matt Singer, Screen Crush.
