Snake Game v 1.0

This is a remake of the Snake video game which was first released during the mid 1970s in arcades.

Game Play

You (the player) control a virtual "snake" which roams around its little world eating food pellets and trying to avoid its demise by running into itself or the edges of the world. With each food pellet you (the "snake") eat, you grow stronger and larger; in turn making it increasingly difficult for you (the "snake") to continue your existance. When you manage to consume 10 food pellets, you will be promoted to the next level.


Simple! You control the direction of the snake's head with the arrow keys (up, down, left, or right) and the snake's body follows. The "snake" can move any direction except, it cannot turn backwards into itself.

If you need a break, you can press "p" to pause the game, just note that pausing the game will decuct 10 points from your score.


Please select a name for your snake!

Please select the level of difficulty for your game. The harder the difficult the more points you earn per food pellet.

Simple Easy Medium Hard Insane
