The classic arcade game Snake, except the pallets are sorted in a specific colour order, and getting the pellets out of order results in your loss.

(Fullscreen recommended for better visibility)


  • Left, up, down, right arrow keys - move
  • Z - Change pellet palette on title screen
  • X - Reset game (does not reset your high scores.)


  • The snake
  • Pellets (the game now qualifies as a snake-like, my job is done here.)
  • ...
  • Invincibility pellets, which let you eat pellets in any order.
  • A high score system (but it's not connected to anything, so getting a high score is pretty much up to your own enjoyment...)
  • 12 super cool and totally gameplay-changing colour palettes

Last updated on April 23rd 2021:

  • Made the snake move on its own like in the real Snake
  • Tweaked the invincibility mode a little

This project was made over a single weekend as a Pico-8 test, so it's nothing grandiose.

Awesome work! Pico-8 stuff is super limiting, so this is pretty cool!

Takes a couple tries to figure out how it works but it's a fun game that's a good twist on the classic snake. Even with the audio warning for the invincibility it's very hard to tell when it's actually going to end, because if you lose track you instantly die. Wish there was a depleting bar or a visual countdown along with the audio que.

This is actually really fun and a cool concept. I love it visually, but I feel like it couldve been expanded a little more on that front. I also wish this was tile based as opposed to being completely free movement. Other than that, it's fun and enticing to make the funny snake get more colors.

the concept is great, my only problem is that you aren't moving continuously like in the original snake, and that makes the game too easy for my taste

Some of the colors are too difficult to discern (even with the blinking). The pixels should not appear right next to others. Have died several times when Invincible times out, making it so that I don't want to use it beyond the first 2 seconds.
