The Basics

For fun I made this to prove-out that my MS Paint plugin could be extended nicely.

Amusingly the demo below uses three plugins I've written to make a larger game from the pieces.

It won't support multiple instances being played simultaneously.


Snake color Food color Background color

your high score: (we use cookies for this purpose only)

0 points -

Demo setup:

var $p = $('#points');
$p.levelup({'start' : 0, showThousands: true});

$('#container').snakeGame({rows: 40,
                           cols: 40,
                           speed: 250,
                           onPoint: function(increase) {
                               $p.levelup('increment', increase);
                           onGameOver: function() {
                               $('#over').text('Game over!');
$('#start').on('click', function(event) {




Basically just include the file.

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="/libs/jquery-snake-game/jquery.snake-game.js"></script>

<div id='container'></span>

    $('#container').snakeGame({rows: 20, cols: 20});
