ZX Snake is an experiment. It's the classic Snake/Niblles game, but with a retro style. It's inspired by L'Abbaye des Morts, a game by @locomalito. Also it's Newgrounds exclusive, with SCOREBOARD and MEDALS support!

- MOVE the Skeletal Snake with ARROWS or WASD!
- COLLECT CROSSES for points!
- DEVOUR SOULS for extra lives!
- AVOID the walls or get killed
- DONT EAT YOURSELF (brotip)

Have fun!

The points-based medals are all off. For example, the Silver Medal unlocks at 100 points, and not at 65 points as the medal description falsely says. I imagine Gold Medal probably unlocks at 150 points (rather than 100). As for Diamond Medal? 200 points maybe? (But definitely not 150)

Simple yet entertaining

Well, I always like to see interesting work and this one was no disappointment. You've presented a lovely piece, with well designed ideas and concept, So you know what you are doing and you know how to add the fun in all that you do, so that was good enough for me. Also this had a good and Professional feel about it and such, so i was pretty impressed. Fun yet simple game here it was amusing and entertaining it seems as if it slows down the more of a tail you gain but overall it was fun. I enjoy this submission for what it is, it has some good potential to be even better and even more, just have to take the effort and push the ideas fourth but anyways you have the concept down now you just have to capitlize on it. so the Highlights of tis entry is that you have done it Tastefully, and there are some areas you can still Rejuvinate.

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
Before i get into improvments and updating any lacking areas, I just want to say that you have a good game here it kept me interested and was not boring by any means, There is allways room for improvment and while your flas was pretty decent there were a few stuff and details that could have some slight more effort, but i must say there is always room for some kind of improvment. I think there could be a smoother frame rate as you get deeper into the game, other then that its not too bad.

Thank you very much for your review! This was the last game I've worked on, after a one year of testing my skills as a programmer to develop games. It makes me really happy to know, by reading your review and other ones I've received, that I'm improving. Thank you again and I promise that the next one will be better.

Where's the PAUSE BUTTON! Yeah you should've added a P button in the game in case someone wanted to call their gf.

I am sure most of us have played Snake before, so it was nothing I'd consider new. Nevertheless, I enjoyed playing it. I did encounter a problem wih unlocking the medals though e.g. the silver one didn't work for me, so you might want to take a look into that. :)

This game is alright. It is just another Snake game, and there is quite a few on Newgrounds already. A suggestion, maybe add a way to configure controls- I don't like the "X" key. Another thing is that you should add some things to give it replay value and make it stand out from the rest of the Snake games. I think this game has the potential to be great, it just isn't quite there yet.
