    [Preview] IK Snake

    A variation of the classic snake game, though this time done using IK physics
    http://www.markfennell.com/flash/snake/index.php

    Still need to add a title, and the game over / scoring stuff, but I think is pretty cute and fun to play!

    If you eat your tail the game stops, it's not a crash, no gameover screen

    The game is nice, the only thing I'd love to see, is if you used BitmapData for the background, and then every time you killed a mouse, you drew the blood/corpse onto it.
    By the end of the game it would be the most gruesome looking background ever!

    lol, yeah I havent added end game stuff yet. I did have corpses everywhere before, but it ends up too hard to see the mice after a while

    still, I might be able to work out something there!

    Drop the opacity, or darken them with a ColorTransform. I desire a mouse graveyard!

    Sweet, sweet, sweet. I don't think anything can top your F18 one though.

    You used that gore particle system again eh? Hate to say it, but it doesn't quite work for the mice. You should have a nice chomp sound effect, maybe a screen shudder, and then have a mouse body bulge effect going down to the tail. Now that would be cool.

    Loving your work, as always.

    Nice game.
    Just like the original, this version of snakes is very addicive. The presentation is the best that of ever seen for a snake game (lovin that blood effect).
    Everythings fine except I disliked the following:
    -Energy Bar seemed to drain too quickly (Every time I play this game I die from energy loss, which is fine, but it seems like the mouses appear too late for you to get more energy)..Hope that makes sence
    -Better death animation.Right now the blood looks great and the skeleton that eventually appears is also a lovely touch, but with everything looking so realistic, the mouses reaction when getting bitten doesn't look too great (if a real mouse was bitten, it would move or something)...Iopred's 'mouse graveyard' idea would also pretty sweet
    IDEA:
    -In some snake versions, there are bonus animals (EG. If a bonus animal is eaten, you would be rewarded 70 points rather than the normal 7) that you can eat. I think having bonus animals that run away from the snake as it approaches would be a great addition to this game. You could also use strategie to trap it (use your body as wall that blocks all of its exits).
    Great game whether you use my suggestions or not. Keep up the good work,
    Viza.

    That's fun! although the blood is the wrong colour and shouldn't spurt quite so far.

    Mice also tend to twitch a bit after you've crunched them up.

    Nice looking game, very fun. I found too that the blood was a bit off. It felt like i was eating really fat mice.

    wow, you'r quite productive atm, aren't you.

    I really like the snake's movement, but found the blood a bit off, too (it looks more like a grown up version of "wack-a-rat")...

    though, while using mice, wouldn't it be nice if the would run away from the snake?

    what if once you eat the mouse it travels down the snakes body like was said here before, and when it reaches the tail it increases it. i think that's a much smoother way of making the tail larger than the way it is right now

    in any case, it's a great game, but I can't play it for too long cause I really don't like snakes and it looks too real

    Love the way the snake moves, it's excellent.

    A brief explanation would be nice

    Sweet game. I love the way the snake moves. And the mouse death animation plus the blood gives it a cool bit of realism.

    Looks really nice!!
    Fun variation on the classic game.
    Slows down after a while though and runs better with Quality=low
    How about if the mouse scampers just a little bit, randomly?
