The Snake is the unit that you control and gains Mass by eating pellets and other Snakes that bump into it, when a Snake hits another Snakes body, it looses all of its Mass and many Pellets spew out of the Snake.
To move a Snake, you may:
- Control the snake with your cursor (the Snake will follow the cursor)
- Use the arrow keys.
The speed of the snake is unaffected towards its mass.
To speed as a Snake, you may either press any mouse button (left click, right click, etc.) or press space and hold. It will cause your Snake to move faster, but it will also drain your mass by 15 units a second, leaving a trail of pellets behind you. When dashing, your Snake will start to shine.
The current default way to grow in length is to eat Pellets and gain more mass and kill other snakes
There are two ways to die as a snake.
- Hit another snake's body (this is the most common cause of death in-game)
- Hit the red out-of-bounds barrier, which is at the edge of the map.
When you die by hitting into snakes, you will turn into many larger pellets, which other snakes may consume.
When hitting the border, you will only disappear and you will not spew out any Pellets when you die.
