A game of snake in one python file. A super tiny project that took me all of 2 hours, created as a speed programming challenge.

You control your snake with the arrow keys and eat the green dots. Every dot you eat makes your tail one dot longer. If you collide with yourself, a blue block, or the sides, you lose. Play until you get bored.



It's written in python, and it uses pygame (whose site has a much less aesthetically painful theme these days) to make the graphics and sound happen.

The game is rather old, so it will come as no surprise that I haven't updated it to modern versions of python. You'll need to install python 2 (last tested on python 2.5 and 2.6), and a very old version of pygame (last tested on version 1.7).
