License: MIT snekjs on NPM

A terminal-based Snake implementation written in JavaScript (Node.js).

Read the tutorial

Instructions

Use the arrow keys (↑, ↓, ←, β†’) or W A S D to navigate the snake up, down, left, or right. Eat the red dot to gain points. If the snake collides with the wall or its own tail, it's game over. Press ENTER to restart, and Q, ESCAPE or CTRL + C to quit the game.

Installation

Run without installing

The easiest way to play the game is to just run it in the terminal without installing anything!

npx taniarascia/snek

Clone from repository

git clone https://github.com/taniarascia/snek
cd snek

# install and run via npm or yarn
npm i && npm run play

npm module

Add the snekjs module.

npm i snekjs

Create the game.

// index.js
const { UserInterface, Game } = require('snekjs')
const game = new Game(new UserInterface())

// Begin game
game.start()

Run the game.

node index.js
