Hey! Just sharing my first game in pico-8: a snake clone!
Snake is a game with a special place in my heart, so I wanted to try do a version of it. Loving pico-8!

Cool! It looks very authentic!

I was slightly surprised that the screen wraps, but with the fairly high speed it's still challenging. I dunno if it's my keyboard or if it's a btnp() artifact, but I cannot seem to press the arrows fast enough to turn 180 degrees and leave no space between my massive body. This kind of space management is what I remember most about snake games, so it feels inefficient not to do it :)

Thanks for the feedback! I totally understand what you mean, I do remember the space management being a big part of it! I think that feeling comes from the snake not sticking to a grid, and I don't know yet how to do it :)

I remember playing on an old nokia 3310, but I forgot if the snake wrapped or not. It felt better wrapping, so I left it like that.
