Replicates the core gameplay of controlling a snake or worm that lengthens as it devours food and dies from crashing to walls or other snakes, possibly even itself.
Alternate names: Nibbler, Nibbles, Rattler, Tron-like
The first video game about Snake was released in 1976.
Nibbler, Nibbles and Rattler are widely known clones of Snake. Tron (or rather Tron's light cycles) uses the same gameplay mechanics as well.
Note that Snake is not the first game with the gameplay, neither is Tron which came after. Oldest supposedly is Blockade.
Difference between Tron and Snake is that the length of the trail behind can be lengthened in Snake but not in Tron. Snake is also usually singleplayer game while Tron and its ilk are commonly multiplayer PvP.
