Hi @choo-t.

Please make it so if you reverse your direction, that is if you are traveling down and press up, left and press right, right and press left, or up and press down, the player will not run into their own line.

Thanks !

But these checks were scarified on the altar of concision, as they cost some characters, the no-reverse version is 394 characters long.

Yes, the goal was to make the smallest snake, as far as I know, previous attempts in PICO-8 were 505, 485 and 416 characters long, with the same level of functionality (no anti-reverse).

Hmm ... A small snake ? That might be an interesting challenge to take.

hi!

many people have already made this game, but it's never too late to do it again.
Thanks :)
