Imagine that the Snake game used to be one of the most played computer games. Our fathers and grandfathers played very enthusiastically with it. It is a game that is assigned to the skill game genre. Such games require very good fine motor skills and pronounced reaction skills from players. For me personally, this is only half the truth. Pressing buttons quickly and at the right moment is certainly not so easy, but very easy to do when the hunted object is in close proximity. It looks a little different when it’s not. This calls for other skills such as spatial perception or the selection of the best possible target path. This also increases the demands a player has to make for this game. Snake is an excellent example of this, although it is such a spartanly designed game with equally simple rules, but the challenge can be very challenging and very attractive to the player. This is where the well-known saying comes into play: “Not all that glitters is gold”;. There are many examples of this. If you think of Tetris or Mahjong, they are classics whose presentation is limited to the bare essentials, the rules of the game are easy to understand, and probably that’s why they are still very popular today and are played with pleasure.
There you go:
The goal of the game is to guide the snake to catch as much food as possible without encountering obstacles. These include the boundary of the playing field, and own body parts of the snake.
At the beginning of the game, a small snake appears in the middle of the playing field, consisting only of one building block: the head. After that the morsels appear. The player leads the snake, or more precisely its head part, to the body part of the morsel. He uses the arrow keys on the keyboard to do this. If the morsel is touched it disappears, the snake becomes one body part longer and somewhere on the board a new morsel of food appears.
The morsel of food: At the beginning of the game always a bite appears.
End of game: The player may grow the snake and maneuver it as long as he does not touch any obstacles. These include the boundaries of the playing field and of course the snake’s own body parts.
