The old favourite of the caterpillars eating the
apples has been done many times but there is always room for new
versions if they are done well. This one has great graphics, super fast
play and options for one or two players over about 20 levels. You will
need to be an expert player to reach the top. Your serpent needs to eat
a number of items on each screen to progress. What look like carrots, or
maybe chilli peppers, make your serpent grow and make the play more
difficult but on later levels cups of tea(?) appear which can be eaten
without effect. One player action is challenging but the game really
comes into its own in two player mode where great fun can be had trying
to outrun and outscore your opponent. A familiar theme but some quality
programming makes this one worth adding to your collection.
Boot with Basic.
