Slither is a rather impressive snake game from Erik Johnson. As with most snake games, the object of the game is to eat all the food whilst avoiding obstacles such as walls and poison.
The game uses the canvas element to draw the main game area – including the snake player and walls as well as the food, poison and upgrade items. Everything else uses standard CSS2 techniques and jQuery animations.
Comments from the Author:
An innovative approach to the classic Snake/Nibbles genre using Canvas. It employs a unique combination of components to drive the game, with very good performance on a number of systems. There are several challenges, including walls, poison items, and upgrades, for a total of 7 levels.
