Snake80 by Martin Fitzpatrick
A downloadable game
Snake game in 10 lines, PUR-80 (80 chars per line) in SAM Coupe BASIC.
You control the Snake with the keys Q, A, O & P for up, down, left, right.
Eating food gains you a point and extends your Snake length by 1. If you
chomp your own tail you die. You start as a snake of 1 and can freely move
in any direction until you eat something.
Included is a SAM Coupe DSK image (EDSK format). To play, you can use SimCoupe
available from here: http://www.simcoupe.org/download/
From the boot screen: File -> Open -> Select disk image
You will see the message "no AUTO* file" (if you don't type BOOT and hit Enter)
LOAD "snake80" # to load the game
RUN # to start the game
Hit ESC at any time to exit out and to the source listing.
If the palette effects are making things unreadable, enter:
PALETTE # To reset the palette
PEN 15 # To use white pen for listing text
PAPER 0 # To set the background to black
