well,
it's better to make in tgf2 because it allows more objects.

make a square, make it move automatically, and make it create other squares that get deleted after a certain amount of time using an alterable value.

then for each thing the head collects make the snake longer by making the time to delete parts of it's body higher.

and im sure you can figure out the rest.

Basically just a clearer version of what AndyUK said:

Make one object as your snake's head, make a movement for it so that it keeps moving in the same direction until you change the direction by pressing a key. Then always created a 'body piece' at the position of the head. And always add 1 to the alt val A of the body pieces. When the body piece's alt A > 20, destroy them. Every time you eat a piece of fruit, change that 20 to a higher number, thus increasing the time to destroy each body part. It would be best if you stored the number 20 as a variable such as Global Value A or something. That makes it easier to change and compare.

but I don;t think the movement is 'time' based, just 'tick' based. Every 'tick' you move 1 grid-space in x direction. The game starts ticking away slowly, and you are a certain length. As the game progresses, it ticks away faster and adds to your length.

right i've made a bouce, used the arrow keys to change directions on request (easy)

AWAYS CREATE BLOCK 2 RELATED TO BLOCK 1 (x1 y0) (right that works cool thanx for that)

the snake works

but how do i do the next bit i'm confused how do i make it so it doesn't create more Block 2's and how do i control the amount of block 2's being made?

Didn't Assault Andy answer that question in a previous thread? I'm sure there are snake game demos on the site somewhere.

Hey, Va1entine your posts are hard to understand.


As for your question on how to not make more block 2s look at mine and Assault Andy's posts again, we have already told you.
Er this bit

"And always add 1 to the alt val A of the body pieces. When the body piece's alt A > 20, destroy them."

that will work ^
