PC Gamer has declared Snakes of Avalon to be one of the highlights of September - one of the 6 best freeware games of September to be exact. Editor Lewis Denby described the game with the following words:
"It’s an odd one. It’s completely, unreservedly bonkers. A lot of the time I didn’t have the faintest clue what was going on. Some of the puzzles are ridiculous. But the art style is intriguing, and its bizarre sense of humour strangely arresting. I like it a lot, even though I’m not quite sure why."
