The Snake
The classic snake game revisited


The Snake is a free video game where the player controls a snake whose the only goal is to eat food that appears at random places on the map. The snake gets longer as it eats food. It dies if it runs into the walls, obstacles or itself.

Two game modes are available:
  • Classic Hunting: 10 maps with obstacles and 10 food per map.
  • Marathon Hunting: a single map and a lot of food (more than 100).

The Snake is the perfect game to test your reflexes.

The Snake is a game made with GeeXLab and coded in Lua.
