Nice twist on multiplayer Snake. I like being able to bite the guy's worm in twain! And huge props for making the game playable single-player.

That was really fun actually! The biggest issue was there was blurry text in the HTML5 version, not sure about the windows version.

this was quite fun and would be great if the screen was larger and I had more people to play with - great job

I really liked the concept! Like a deathmatch game of Snake. The game itself is really fun, and I was really impressed with the AI given the short timeframe.

The updated version is actually pretty funny, upgrades give the old old old snake game nice new twist.

But that's the update made post compo. The originally submitted file doesn't deserve any stars. BTW posting screenshots from the updated version is a bit misleading.

Really enjoyed it! Think you're on to something here!

Thank you for all the comments we are very excited to read them all!

@Shigor, we submited the old version in that state because we started it in the last 2 hours. we actualy worked on the final game 72 hours.

New updated :: you can now select the screen size (game width) and select which power ups you want in the game!

We might work on a multiplayer(online) version in the next days!

Thank you again!

Really cool game. The snake is no longer alone.

Nice game! At first it seemed too difficult and random, specially when the powerup to bite appeared in front of the red worm. But eventually I got used to the game and how to use available powerups

Good work!

little bugs but fun.

May 9, 2014 @ 8:32pm

Very fun to play! I included it in part 17 of my Ludum Dare compilation video series, if you want to check it out :) http://youtu.be/wBne0r55jPY

This is a really creative idea! I was getting super frustrated because I lost the first 4 times, but it it was fun when I destroyed those bots the 5th try. Great work!

May 11, 2014 @ 2:19am

Really cool take on a classic game. This would be really fun as an online game.

lightsoda says ...
May 13, 2014 @ 5:10am

Simple but pretty fun, especially when maxing out the number of bots :)

This game doesn't look like much but it's a suprising amount of fun, really you just need some art/sound person to polish the look, but the game is very well coded and innovative. Great job!

I'm not going to rate this if I can't play the version you submitted for the jam instead of these "updated" versions.

Thank you all for your comments :)

@Moosefly, We made the version submitted here in 3 days.

Online MultiPlayer version is here! :D
Check it out!

I absolutely love this game and the fact that you can change world settings, it creates a few distinct modes which are very, very different from each other and some of them are fun in their own right (few examples: longest starting length with no powerups, lots of powerups and food aka super-speed train of destruction, etc).

Will try multiplayer version as soon as I find someone to play with, it should be great.

You should have noted somewhere that this version was made post compo though, even if it was made during 72 hours entirely, rules demand that it should be made during a definite timeframe, so it's formally not eligible for voting.

But don't let it stop you from expanding this great game, it's too much fun and I would love to see it expanded and polished more!

You must sign in to comment.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
