Erm . . . . .

Nice title screen.

Will need to add a bit more to this to make it interesting enough to play. Snake is a very basic game indeed.

I've made a couple of suggestions to him about the game.

Here is an update:

Hello!
a new release of Ms Snake! and few questions.
 
In this release:
1. High scores
2. Animated title screen
3. Support for NTSC and PAL (use BW/Col switch)
 
Then two questions for forum gurus:
1. Using the 96x2 minikernel, I'm getting flickering and wavy lines. Am I doing something wrong?
2. Is there some dirty hack that made possible to draw the first and the last columns of the play fields with different colors?
    It will be very cute if border and snake may have a different color (but, of course, they are both rendered using playfield pixels)
 
Thanks to all for compliments and suggestions.
 
Daniele

I like the label, it has an old school look. Very Nice!

Was there a game called Snake for VCS BITD? I remember Sssnake by Data Age being a real stinker though. Maybe this game will be promising?

It's the same basic concept but it is still being worked on.  Even though it is a simple game, it can be addicting.
