JS Post 2 – Retro Snake Game ⊙_ʘ

I have always had a liking to the snake game maybe it is cause it is pretty easy to program? I know programming the game is pretty simple and here is something that I did on a whim. not much but it was satisfactory?

It uses arrow keys to control the snake movement, as far as I have managed to play the snake movement and growth is logical. And when the snake dies the scores are displayed along with an option to play again which I felt was good enough.Maybe I’ll add another script here that makes use of a mouse click?

But that was not all that I wanted. Cause when I went around searching for retro snake game, this gif popped up and wow I never knew that one can possibly win a Snake game. (I am not sure if I have added code for the boss level player in my snake game…)

This gif had me thinking and no matter what angle I look at it I don’t think it was a human that played and even if it wasn’t a human the way that the snake moved about in about 3 places during the game made me realize that it would be easier to presume that a human played than the alternative that it was coded.

According to a number of comments the final screen reads:

“And now we’ll show you a cartoon. Connecting to server … No connection. Thanks. Everybody’s free to go.”

I hope my thoughts are clearly conveyed. I want to code an algorithm to crack a snake game (at the moment language dependent until I get a grip on the flow of things.). And I say I want to cause I haven’t done one… yet. I know I have been mentioning about my exams too frequently (that are still going on ,unfortunately..*sigh)  , But it was because of that ,that I willed myself to stop thinking about a way to solve a snake game using AI like the one in this site.

Okay so that being provided, here’s something similar to last time that I made for the blog:

(almost anywhere I think?It works on touch screen devices also!!!)
