Online Snake Game

This is a simple Snake video game I wrote over the past few days. For the graphics, I used my Firetools.js library, which I also mentioned in my Pong post.

To play the game, use the arrow keys on the keyboard (you might need to click on the game to give it focus). The world loops, so you can go out one side of the screen and come in the other. Eat 50 green pellets to win the game. Each time you eat a pellet, you will get longer and your score will go up; the longer you are, the more points you get for each pellet. If you don't eat enough pellets, you'll begin to starve, and get shorter. Cherries make you longer, but do not prevent starvation.

I did not add the ability to track high scores, but I might add that feature later on. Meanwhile, you can post your scores in the comments. Have fun!
