A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

This is my entry to the ZX Spectrum BASIC Jam. It is a Snake/Nibbles-like game for the ZX Spectrum computer, written in 100% Sinclair BASIC.

Giude the snake through the garden, eating apples that fall from the tree, before they rot. Avoid the walls and the mongoose!

I enjoyed writing the game and hope you'll enjoy playing it!

Install instructions
