Circular Snake

Author Comments

HOW TO PLAY: Use arrow keys to move, or swipe on mobile.

You cannot change direction when in the very centre of the circle.

The snake will always turn in the direction of the arrow key - e.g. pressing the up key when at the top of the circle will move the snake away from the centre of the circle, whereas pressing the up key when at the bottom of the circle will move the snake towards the centre.

This was a tricky one the circular version is hard and not easy on the eyes Well it's snake and you really can't go wrong with a snake game this particular version of snake has gave us some entertaining fun a nice style some small detail but for the most part I found it to be pretty fun even as the classic snake that it is I like it


i like how the game is challenging!

OMG!!!! This game is so intelligent!!!!
thats a great idea!!!!
wow! this game is amazing!!!1

Interesting concept, but the arrows don't always work the first time you press them

Nice! At first it seemed really hard to master this control scheme, where up quickly becomes down and sideways, but once you realize the arrow keys do still work in the direction they point regardless of the direction of the snake it's not so hard after all... what would be really cool here is a highscore table via the API! If possible. Nice work.
