My entry for this years GMTK game jam, The theme was "Out of Control"

In Snaaake, i tried to keep the scope narrow since i'm prone to feature creep so i decided to put a spin on an established theme. In Snaaake each pill (apple) you collect has a chance to mutate the game state, which can eventually lead to you losing control.

I would have added music but i'm not very music-savvy, enjoy! 


- Time warp: The speed of the game can get faster or slower.
- Double time: Every time you collect a pill, 2 more spawn.
- Break walls: Random sections of the map will break, allowing you to wrap around.
- Glitch: The screen becomes fuzzy and difficult to see
- Change places!: Swaps a single axis of controls, Left becomes Right and Right becomes Left! This is hard to balance and you very much lost control instantly, a bit unfair! Good luck!


Z: Start / Begin game
Arrow keys: Move

This is really neat!! The control swap is definitely the most devastating mutation hehe. Love that lil snake mlep. :p (one note, the high score gets set to whatever your current score is when you enter the menu screen, even if you had a higher score before)

Damn swamped controls! :)
