The classic game of Snake - eat the targets & grow, but don’t run into anything !

A great way to relax and tune-out from your day for a quick break.

Classic snake is the most customisable snake game you will ever find. Look at all the options !

Boards - Several challenging boards to master. From simple open board where snake wraps-around, to walls, to maze-like boards and more !

Speeds - From very slow to nearly impossibly fast

Time Bonus - Eat faster to earn more

Themes - Multiple snake skins and backgrounds to choose from

Controls - Directional or “Steering” controls (in settings)

Control Keys - Cursor keys or WASD keys - both sets are always available

Grow-rate - Choose how fast the snake grows on eating each target (in settings). Choose a high value to make the snake grow quickly for a very tough game ! Or choose 1 for a more relaxing gameplay

Number of targets: Control how many targets the snake has at any time. Set this to 1, few, or many ( in settings)

Snake Size: Choose from fat or thin to change the grid-size to your liking (in settings)

Music - 8-Bit retro soundtrack

Handy keyboard shortcuts:
P: Play
B: Change background
K: Change sKin (how the snake looks)
M: Menu
X: Toggle Sound
Spacebar : Pause

High scores are saved for each speed and board

I made Classic Snake because I loved playing it on my Commodore 64 back in the 80s. There were many versions of the game over the year and I wanted to keep the core of the game while giving options to fine tune according to a player's liking.

Snake is a game concept from a simpler time. Easy to pick up, easy to get into, and easy to get lost in. I've tried to retain that core flavour, while also letting you customise the game as you like.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it :)

What’s New

Version 7.1

Could Use More Features

Great but it would be cool if the game could save your high scores. Also sometimes my snake will disappear offscreen and never come back…

Best Snake Game on the Mac Store

This game has a ton of customizibility and functionality, it also runs rly smoothly and barely eats up any power. I really like all the different options and looks this game has. I only wish it gave the user a bit more options like how much longer the snake gets per pellet eaten! Love the game!

What I was looking for!

Recently I’ve been on a vintage game boy kick and ordered a bunch of Japanese game boy games.
One of them was called Kakomunja which was released over here under the title Serpent.
It’s a fascinating game that I heard was based off a classic game called Snake.

I wanted something similar and this Classic Snake app totally satisfies!
Thank you!!!

Developer Response ,

Glad you liked it :). BTW I also have an iPhone version called ‘Snake Nibbler’. Also free :)
