Snake2 plugin

Yet another snake game. The basic rules are the same as always. You move the snake around, and eat the apples that pop up on the screen. Each time you eat an apple, the snake gets longer. The game ends when you hit a wall, or run into yourself.

Menu

Here you select the speed, the maze and the game type (A or B).

Action Recorder Ondio iRiver MR-100
Quit Off OnOff Stop Power
Select maze F1 Left Rec Left/Right
Select game type (A or B) F3 Right Mode Menu
Increase speed Up/Right Up Up/Right Up
Decrease speed Down/Left Down Down/Left Down
Start the game Play Mode Play Select

Game types

Game A

Here you play in the maze selected with F1, eating as many apples as you can.

Game B

Here you will start in maze 1, and after eating the required amount of apples, you will advance to the next maze. After completing all the mazes, it gets harder, as you have to eat even more apples to advance to the next maze.

In-game keys

Action Recorder Ondio iRiver MR-100
Quit Off OnOff Stop Power
Move the snake Direction keys
Pause/Resume Play Mode Play Select

Creating your own mazes

The mazes are stores in a text file, .rockbox/snake2.levels, and you can edit it to add your own mazes.

Each maze consists of 16 lines of 28 characters, with an empty line separating each maze. Each character can be one of three types:

  • + - Corner
  • | - Vertical line
  • - - Horizontal line
  • . - Empty
Here is the maze in screen shot 2 below:
+---------+......+---------+
|.........|......|.........|
|.........|......|.........|
|.........|......|.........|
|.........+------+.........|
|..........................|
+----..................----+
............................
............................
............................
+----..................----+
|..........................|
|.........|......|.........|
|.........|......|.........|
|.........|......|.........|
+---------+......+---------+

Just add an empty line and your new maze to the end of the file, and snake2 will add it to the game.
