Opening[edit]

The opening of this article should be rephrased. It makes it sound like the game came into existance around the 90's. It's been longer than that

Ok, I rephrased it to be less misleading, but do you know when it was originally made? - Ultravisitor 02:26, 2 November 2005 (UTC)

Category?[edit]

Since there are several snake games (I think the ZX Spectrum alone had over two dozen), I hereby propose [[Category:Snake_games]]. Anyone?

Fair use rationale for Image:Snake8210.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Snake8210.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 05:23, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Anyways, the first 'worm' game for a microcomputer was 'Worm' (TRS-80 version), written by Peter Trefonas and published by CLOAD magazine in 1978. Trefonas also wrote similar versions of this program for a PET and an APPLE2 shortly afterwards. Here is a site with the code of Trefonas' program: http://brainless.hkc.free.fr/missing/Tandy%20Radio%20Shack%20TRS-80%20-%20Model%20Ihave.txt

In conclusion, the SNAKE8210 jpg should be removed as it signifies nothing of importance. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Silylene (talkcontribs) 20:27, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

I added a rationale. However, this rationale is conditioned on whether depiction of the TRS-80 is required. I'm not so sure about that. --Damian Yerrick (talk | stalk) 19:50, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Boabite 3d[edit]

There is a PC game called boabite 3d, which is a 3d snake game; not just graphics but gameplay. The snake floats in midair inside a cube, you can turn it to move in any direction and collect fruit as usual. I don't know if that's particularly notable 86.21.227.237 (talk) 22:02, 21 July 2008 (UTC)


Graphics sophistication[edit]

What exactly does SNES level quality and "Basic Playstation quality" mean? Are there any official graphic quality categories based on consoles that I haven't heard of? Southsailor (talk) 10:57, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

SNES quality is 2D graphics with about 60,000 pixels per scene and multiple sets of 16 colors per object. PS1 quality has polygon graphics roughly comparable to the original Quake. --Damian Yerrick (talk | stalk) 23:00, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

RM Nimbus[edit]

There was a version of this produced for the RM Nimbus in the 1980s. I have the executable but it doesn't work under DOS/Windows. 2fort5r (talk) 15:02, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

It was called "Worm" and doesn't run under DosBox, probably due to nonstandard hardware of the Nimbus PC. 2fort5r (talk) 10:20, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

That's the same name as the original TRS-80 game programmed by P. Trefonas and published by CLOAD, and the subsequent Apple II and PET games . Most likely, the PC game is a copy of one of these, since it was released at least 3.5 years afterwards. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Silylene (talkcontribs) 20:50, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

part about youtube deleted?[edit]

I added to the article explaining that snake could be played on youtube.

Why was this removed? Seems fairly 'important' (relatively) information since youtube is used by millions of people on a daily basis. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.163.30.97 (talk) 21:00, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Snake Variant Removed[edit]

I added a variant of Snake called Batch Snake, which is new to the variant list. It contributed to the variant list, and was relevant. It's just like all of the other external links, so why was it removed? Kolto101 (talk) 05:41, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Snake clones[edit]

Use of the word "Current"[edit]

Under the heading "Nokia Phones", and at the bullet point "Snake Xenzia", the article says that this game appears on "current" phones.

This would probably be better written with a specific year, but since I don't know when this was written, nor do I know how to find out, I'm hoping that someone else can fill in this information... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.8.232.153 (talk) 21:10, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Good point. I've changed it to "later-model monochrome phones" for now. Grayfell (talk) 09:05, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Programming Snake[edit]

Shouldn't be explained how the program works? I mean is there an array of all body parts or are just the last one deleted and a new head added? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.91.26.166 (talk) 08:57, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

That would be a great thing to add, if there's a reliable source explaining it. I'm not a great programmer, but I imagine that it depends on which version of Snake you're talking about. Since it's been written many, many times in a large number of languages and settings, just about any approach you can think of has probably been attempted at one point or another.

Screenshot[edit]

Can we scale it up by at least 400%? I think it's too small. Cganuelas (talk) 07:15, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
