SnakeByte is a pacman-art-game programmed with python and the pygame python module in which you incarnate a snake moving in a labyrinth where yellow apples are disposed. The aim is to eat all the apples in order to open the door to get out of the labyrinth – by avoiding the phantoms hunting the labyrinth and the walls the snake can hurt.

You can select the level you want to play from the 10 levels available at game start.

Every level is a bit more difficult than the precedent and the apples and phantoms are dispose and move differently in relationship to the level.

By game end you can register your score or not which appears with a percent number of eaten apples.

To finish a level you have 10 lifes, before getting game over.

If you hit a wall you will lose a life too, so be carefull by your turns and slides: the phantoms are not the only danger in SnakeByte.
