Mr. Snips[1] are enemies in the games Dangle and Nitrome Must Die.


Mr. Snips has a round, pink body with four small feet. They have two small eyes, a mouth with sharp teeth, and two pink claws on either side of their body. Mr. Snips bears a slight resemblance to winghead doodles.

Game information


In Dangle, Mr. Snips walks horizontally on a platform, always turning at ledges or walls. If the spider is close to Mr. Snips when descending, Mr. Snips will extend one of their claws out towards the spider by a certain length.

If their claw manages to touch the spider's webbing, it will be cut and cause a game over as the spider will be dropped out of the screen. Touching Mr. Snips will cost the spider one heart.
