A light weight web game using HTML JQuery and CSS.

How to play: Snake starts automatically and can move pretty fast, change direction with the arrow keys. Simply avoid hitting yourself, there are no walls holding you back.

Further Description: The "board" is a simple unordered list with 256 line elements that are floated left with a 1px border.

Snake is written fully in JS on a single dimentional array. It is rendered on screen by adding and removing classes from select line elements. The snake's tongue and eyes are ':before' and ':after' pseudo elements that are rotated and moved with relative position. The tongue is a simple 'Y' and the eyes are a colon with a white text-shadow;

Snake moves forward ever 80ms.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
