How to play

You are a tiny mamba spider playing against a claustrophobic snake.

Use the arrow keys to walk the spider.

You complete a level by covering enough free space with your spider web. The snake can break your string by slithering through it.

You have to complete a new web at least every thirty seconds to keep the game interesting.

☮ Don't let the snake eat you.


I loved playing Mamba as a kid, but I couldn't find a version for the Mac and was kinda bored.

You can see what the original looked like in this video.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
