Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Snake: The Gathering

by Jimsen - Compo Entry


Winter has come, it is time for snakes to gather and hibernate. But, according to old Nokia, if snake touches its body, it is game over. So, it is up to you manage all 5 gathered snakes to collect their foods while not touching themselves.

Made for Ludum Dare 37. This is a very little teeny tiny game. I was inexperienced and couldn't manage my time. I had so much great ideas in my mind. But, oh well. Even so I learnt a lot by participating in Ludum Dare. See you in the LD38.

I got it to work pretty easily -- thank you for making it a simple .JAR file!

I had trouble playing it, though. The controls were very unresponsive and the window was too big to fit on the screen, so when food appeared along the bottom I had to try to get it blindly. I never got to the point with "all 5 gathered snakes", but if I understand you correctly, that sounds like a cool idea.

I look forward to your entry in LD38!

It worked for me on Linux, but it was very slow. That could just be my computer though. I liked the idea, it took some getting used to figuring out which snake I controlled, but the AI implementation was a nice touch. Good job from a fellow Java developer!
