Snake
Version: 1.0
by: Motig [More]
The classic Snake game made as an addon. I doubt this needs a lot of explanation!

Simply type /snake to show the game. Move the snake with your arrow keys. While a game is running you can't use your keyboard to move in the game world but your mouse will still work.

If you have suggestions, comments, please let me know!


Note
Game performance may vary, I have only tested it on my own computer so if you're running into problems give me a shout.

Just a suggestion

First of let me just say that my role of Guardian of Dalaran has never been so enjoyable. Love this add-on.

That being said i was just suggesting that you add w-a-s-d controls. it feels awkward in wow using arrow keys.

You're welcome! Upon re-reading my post I wasn't, precisely speaking, speaking precisely. I don't want to be pedantic; but, just in case, I'll rephrase the last sentence in my third bullet:

"For any given direction, the choices should be a ninety-degree turn to the right or the left."

Phrasing difference doesn't imply association with specific arrow keys. How annoying/confusing would snake be if the Left and Right arrows changed behavior based on the direction the worm was traveling? While traveling down, the left arrow would turn you to the right! Yikes.

Anyway. Thumbs up again!

Nice.

Suggestions!
  • High Score (obviously )
  • 3, 2, 1 countdown after pressing start
  • Hitting the arrow opposite the direction of your travel shouldn't be possible (IMO). What does that actually even mean in 2 dimensions? For any given direction, the choices should be left or right.

I'm surprised nobody thought to make this for this long. Favorited!

The code is not very organized at the moment, sorry for that

Actually, if food has been placed on a position where the snake's body currently resides it executes placeFood() again on the next movement of the snake until it's not on the body. But yeah it doesn't actually check where the body of the snake currently is for the placement.

Hey guys, glad you like it!

I'm still looking into features to add, I got a few that may work. I haven't looked into multiplayer yet, I'll see if I can think of a few ways it can be implemented in a fun way. I'm going on vacation this week but I'll probably add a few more things later on
