Simple console game. Written in C++ with ncurses.
It started as an exercise in the JUNIOR .NET programming learning group. I wrote my first Snake in C# and then even rewrote it to work on the WinRT platform.
I recommend compiling ncurses from source
curl -O ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/ncurses/ncurses-5.9.tar.gz tar -zxvf ncurses-5.9.tar.gz cd ncurses-5.9 ./configure make sudo make install
Or you can get them from your distribution
apt install libncurses5-dev
Then go into Snake folder and run
make sudo make install
You will then run it with
Use arrows to move the snake,
p to pause,
q to quit
