threadworms

A multithreaded programming demonstration in Python & Pygame using a "Nibbles" clone.

Demo is on the Invent with Python Blog

This Python & Pygame script shows a simple window where "worms" of various lengths and speed run around. The program demonstrates multithreaded programming and using locks to make the code threadsafe (worms will never go through each other.)

This code works with either Python 3 or Python 2. You need Pygame installed to run it.

Uncomment the setGridSquares() function call to draw static squares on the map, instead of having a completely open field. You can also try adjusting the constants at the top of the file.
