nsnake
a snake game for your terminal

nsnake [
-cnsw
] [
-C color
]

You are controlling a snake where the goal is eating food spawning randomly on the screen.
There are two types of food, normal and free, respectively +, *.
The head of the snake is symbolized with an @.
Each time you eat a piece of food, the snake will be shrunk by two. If you eat a free piece of food the score will be increased but not the snake's length.
The following options are available:
Disable colors, by default if the terminal is capable colors are enabled.
color
Specify an alternate color between 0 and 8. (default 2)
Do not try to update score file.
Only display high score sorting by descending and exit.
Disable wall crossing. Can be used together with -s to show score with wall crossing disabled.

To move the snake the following keys may be used:

Move to up

Move to down

Move to left

Move to right

Suspend the game until p is pressed again.

Change the color.

Quit the game and save the score.

The snake seems to be faster when moving vertically, this is due to terminal character dimensions.
