A downloadable game for Windows

Featuring procedurally generated maps, destructive powerups, fully customizable four-button and two-button control styles, and unlockables including a two-player versus mode, Orbital Snake is a challenging arcade game in the tradition of classics such as Snake and Nibbles, and also features a chaotic unlockable head-to-head two-player mode.

As an intelligent robotic snakeship, pick your way through abandoned space stations, feasting on scraps of debris, and keep growing to reach the top place in the online high-score charts!

The original version of Orbital Snake was written and released towards the end of 2002. Although initially planned to be a simple update to enable the game to run on modern hardware, the version now available was in fact completely redesigned and recoded from the ground up in the summer of 2009.

For those curious, a full detailed changelog of the game's updates is available here, and forums can be found here to discuss the game or seek help, hints and tips.

I Love this Game

I played it more than 2 hours and I think, it is very good.
but ... I'm not on the best list :(

greeting X20000 :)

Thanks! And yep, there are some pretty competetive scores at the top of the leaderboard - but it looks like you've already managed to get into the top 20, so well done! Best of luck making it into the top 10. ;)


Well, you are welcome. Oh really? thank you :)
