A cross-platform action puzzle game inspired by the classic arcade title Snake. Take control of a snake-like creature in an abstract world to consume food while avoiding obstacles in over 100 levels. In order to challenge both your mental prowess and physical reflexes, Snayke's levels utilize unique mechanics such as teleporters, exploding blocks, obstacles, 'links' between food blocks, and more. In addition to level-based gameplay, Snayke includes "Classic" mode, a game type more reminiscent of the original Snake - the only goal is to beat previous high scores by consuming as much food as possible without dying. Classic mode supports optional 2-4 player competitive local multiplayer with either AI bots or real people.

Nice game, I like it. Sadly the game doesn't always react on my keystrokes, which results in me losing (it reacts delayed, all grapic options already turned to off, was impossible to play with them on here; AMD Athlon 64 3000, w/ 1.8 GHz, Debian sid 32bit).

I always get an error when trying to update this game through my Desura games list -

"There was an error during the gathering information process and it has been stopped.

There is no update available for this item. [52.0]"

Hi, I just bought this game and the graphics look jagged. The background is black and the snake is made of intermittent jellow strings. This is so frustating. How can I fix it?
I don't know if the following infos are relevant...anyway I play on:
Win7 Laptop.
ATI Radeon HD5470
4Gb Ram
Intel i3

Hi. Do you have the latest graphics drivers for your video card? If you turn shaders off in options->graphics, does it look normal? If so, does it look normal if you turn shaders on and bloom off?

Yeah I got the latest drivers. Anyway it looks normal only if I turn both shaders and bloom off.
I can really enjoy it now, does shaders and bloom make a significative difference?

@badlogicgames Actually there are only 2 Intel Macs w/ GL2 that can't do 64 bit (early '06 iMac&MBP), and they were quickly replaced

Apr 7 2014, 5:25pm

@badlogicgames And those that do likely won't be installing new software. Programs like VLC dropped 32 bit builds a long time ago.

Apr 7 2014, 5:19pm

@badlogicgames So there's only a 6 month gap between first Intel Macs and first 64 bit Intel Macs. Almost no one has 32bit Intel Mac

Apr 7 2014, 5:18pm

@badlogicgames There are only ~5 Intel Mac models with no 64 bit support, all were released in early 2006 (Core Duo/Solo CPUs)

Apr 7 2014, 5:18pm

@Nie_Math @StephanieRct I think it's added by RES. Normally it adds a button to open the link+comments, but it says that if it's a selfpost

@insweater @josefnpat All the LÖVE developers use IRC

RT @___discovery: What are shaders? How do they work? What does it all mean? Here, I wrote a primer for you! T.co

@LunarPeter @StephanieRct @ToastieRepublic Gotta watch the movie to find out, probably!
