This is a reskinned colored version of the classic snake video game for kids and adults. Players must control the pixelated snake in order to collect food that spawns all over the map. Collecting food will make the snake longer. It also comes in three difficulty modes: Simple, Normal, and Hard. Simple is when the snake moves slow while Hard is where it moves very fast. Just like the original snake game, this is an infinite game where you only lose when you bump into your snake’s body or a wall around the snake.
Control the snake’s direction by turning it either up, down, left, or right.
Collect as much food as you can to score points and set the best score.
Your snake grows longer the more food it consumes.
The game ends once you hit a corner of the screen or bump into your snake’s body.

This is a colored version of the classic pixelated food eating snake game. Like the old game, consuming food will gain you points and make the snake longer.
Collecting smaller food in the screen will earn you 10 points. Smaller food does not disappear on the screen until you get it. Once you consumer small food, a new one appears randomly on the screen.
Collecting larger food will earn you 25 points. Larger food appears randomly after you collect a few small foods. Larger food also disappear after a few seconds. So prioritize getting it before it’s gone.
The snake can be navigated to turn up, down, left or right. Controls are pretty much a clone of the classic snake game. Just select the direction and your snake will automatically follow.
Avoid colliding with any part of your snake and bumping to any wall on the screen. When food directly beside a wall time your turn accordingly so you won’t hit the wall.
The game gets harder as you earn more points and the snake grows longer.
A longer snake means it’s more prone to collision because it’s harder to maneuver.
A longer snake covers a larger portion of the screen. This will eventually force you to assume an outward coiling form so your snake has more surface area to pass through.
Practice making turns on your keyboard controls to help you maneuver with ease. It takes a while getting used to it. So the more you play, the better feel you have for the controls.
The points only add up in the Score counter. After you die and play again, you’ll notice the score does not go back to zero. To reset it, you can erase browser history so the counter goes back to zero per game.
Have fun playing this colored version of the classic snake game. Stay alive as long as possible to collect more points.

One comment on "Canvas Snake: Colored Classic Snake Game for Desktop PC"
This is a colorful version of classic Snake with more pixels. Like with the oldest versions of the game, you can’t hit the wall. Keep playing until your snake hits itself or the wall. Like in later games, power ups add bonus points to your score. The colorful pixel-art style graphics adds that extra aesthetic charm.
Besides its appearance, this game also has a unique difference to other snake games. You can use the game’s interface to pause the game and change the settings. This gives you time to adjust your strategy or attend to other things. In doing so, you can lengthen your gaming sessions by picking up where you left off.
