if you want to increase the speed of your game you could use
function _update60()

instead of

function _update()

which will double your FPS if possible.
This would make your snake move even faster though and in my opinion it is way to fast already. I d suggest changing this part :

line:

0047 if snake.d == "�" then
0048      y += 1
0049  elseif snake.d == "�" then
0050      y -= 1
0051  elseif snake.d == "�" then
0052      x -= 1
0053  elseif snake.d == "�" then
0054      x += 1
0055  end

to x += 0.3 or similar values, 1 is just to much, it 30 pixels in one second and your pico 8 screen only has 128x128 pixels.

I like the switching colors! :) :)

I didn't explained myself sorry, I want it to increase the speed more smoothly currently if you change the "s" variable to 4 it's the "normal" speed or the initial speed the game should have, but the steps between speed 4 -> 1 is the thing that is causing me trouble. I move the snake 1 unit in the grid so the position always matches the grid and it doesn't end up on half a cell of the grid, I tried moving it a fraction of the cell and it felt really frustrating to play, so I think the solution is to only move certain frames, and that's the part I'm having problems with

Sorry if it's confusing.

Attempt to do the speed progression better and now it has a high score :)
