Game Information

This is a clone of the ever-popular, super duper famous game in which you are a snake that likes to eat things. However, you like to eat things so much that you end up eating whatever is right in front of you. As such, you’ll be in trouble if you’ve got a wall in front of you, or worse, your own snakey body. Since you’re so poisonous, you’ll die instantly if you bite yourself.
However, if you manage to position yourself in front of something that is edible, you will eat it. And you will get points for it. And everything will be right in the world. In this game, everyone wins. Until you lose.

Controls are fairly straightforward. Use your arrow keys to direct your snake, and the Escape key to exit.
