Worm. I've tried slug a few times, but the reason I mess up is loss of focus, so playing on slug just gives me more time to lose focus. Also with slug, I think you end up with a longer snake for the same score.

I've played Neave snake elsewhere, where it is not so tiny, and expands with the web browser window. And that one is only Worm speed. No choice. Haven't broken 3000 on that one, I'm not sure if it runs slightly faster or something.

My suspicion is that on some machines games like this run nice and slow, making it easier to get high scores. I'm sure your machine must run it slower than mine for instance..

I am on a AMD 2400+ with a ATI Raedon 9700 video card. My guess my machine is running it pretty fast. Worm I can handle but sometimes my key strokes don't register quick enough. Makes me insane.

Then again I am using a wireless keyboard which may cause me to have lag on occasion.

Yeah. Slug goes much slower and you get longer for the same score under worm, but I can last awhile on slug. So it gives me more chances down the road to stay alive..

Trebor: Looks like you are slacking. You only have one high score in the top 10 now. Hardly Snake champ like..... And that comes with me slowing down my snake playing time. I might crank it up and try to break 4000 so I can retire playing...

I've never played snake before coming here to TCarcade, but I always use the slug setting. But now I just tried worm, and I seem to do better with worm. I think I'll stay with worm now.

5,000+ and the wheels still don't move in chopper. I'm thinking it doesn't change.

Trebor: You went from 1st to .. 4th best. LOL!

I keep trying to pad my score but so far no luck. I seem to always get between 2200-2700 and always die on some stupid move.. Making me insane..

I am retiring my snake play. I will no longer play Snake. I put up a monster score today which should hold top spot for days and maybe months to come. If I lose it then I will consider coming out of retirement to regain my belt. But as of today I am DONE!

Good luck to everyone trying to beat my score. Your going to need it.

NatasNJ, you may need to consider coming out of retirement soon to defend your snake title. I have started upping my scores pretty good lately and am starting to creep up on you. Check the top 10.

mtm150: My goal by the end of the weekend is to have you out of the TOP 10 scores.

TreborPugly: You quit trying? Weak...

Looks like Ritzbitz is my only competitor. Sad... Since he has NO CHANCE!

Yes, I am weak. The game graphic is too tiny for me to try try again, sorry.

(I really wish they just had one high score per player too..)

Top 5 scores belong to me. Maybe I will play again once someone can even get into 4k.

I LAUGH AT YOU ALL!
