Serpentine - My Snake Clone

14th December 2015

I created my first ever snake clone! It was a quick entry for Ludum Dare #34, just because I wanted to enter something, and it’s something I’ve never done before.

So I went with a basic 4 colour palette, in the style of old GameBoy games. And also super simple graphics, so everything is square blocks.

It’s my first SpriteKit game as well which is nice, because I’ve been meaning to actually use it for a while. So hopefully I use it again soon!

Here is what the game looks like:

You can view the Ludum Dare entry page for the competition version, or if you want the more updated version then check out Serpentine on itch.io. I’ll probably add a bit more to Serpentine in the future, so if you want any updates it’s probably best to follow me on twitter @chrishannah.
