Play a Game of Snake on Your Keyboard
Gareth Andrews / 3 years ago
I still remember the old Nokia 3310, the indestructible brick. I would steal it off my family and load up the only game worth playing. Snake, the classic tale of food and growth, was all the hit back in the day and even with its evolutions, from being able to travel from one side of the map to the other to including powerups, the classics are sometimes the best. So why not play it on your keyboard?
Created by the Youtuber Mythic Maniac, the colourful version of snake, played using only a Corsair K70 keyboard was created using C# and is publicly available. Available to download from the code repository site Github, it is noted that while it was only tested and used on a Corsair K70 “there’s a high possibility of it working with others as well”.
With everything you need to download, install and play the game I can see many hours fading away as we get used to the new and colourful version of Snake. Be warned, if you are after “good code” you may want to be wary of the warning posted on the GitHub page,
“I never intended to release this at all, so the source might have some silly things lying all over the place.
If you choose to clone this and use for your own purposes, you might want to clean this up a bit.”
So will you be downloading and playing Snake on your keyboard? Who can get the highest score? Tell us yours in the comments below
