Snake made in 3 hours

I always wanted to create my very own version of the famous snake game, as I’ve really enjoyed playing it in the past.

It’s another minigame I’ve created with the Love2D game engine and Zerobrane Studio. I really enjoy creating these mini games, and Love2D is perfect for quick prototyping.

It took me a little bit longer than I’ve expected, but the game now features:

  • 3 different playable levels
  • Score and player live counter
  • Collision detection and response
  • Victory and game over screen
  • Only 340 lines of code
  • Use arrow keys to move
