How to Play
Snake vs Bomb 2 is for 1 player only and requires a Joystick plugged into port 2 (or emulated keys if playing on an emulator). The game can be paused with control (tab in VICE) and aborted by pressing the back arrow key (or the ` key in emulators). 
Your task is to guide your snake safely along a road across a Canyon. You can only move the snake up or down. While travelling along the long straight road, admiring the scenery. During your very long journey, you will encounter scrumptious fruit that has been dropped on the road. However, there is also bad news. Bombs are also dropped on the road

At the top of the screen, you will see a green snake. Each part of the snake in the status panel will turn from green to gold. This
indicates how far you have travelled. After the tongue of the snake is yellow and you travel a little further distance. You will move onto the next level, where more fruit and bombs will appear on the road, giving your snake less space to dodge those deadly bombs.

Can your snake reach safely to the other side of the canyon, or there be an explosive end for your snake? There's only one way to find out ... Play the game!

Install instructions

Place onto your USB, SD-Card or PC device and load into VICE, CCS64 or on the Ultimate 64, or theC64 full size. 
The D64 version features a hi score saver, which requires the D64 image to be mounted/attached if playing on the Ultimate 64 or  a stock C64 with a 1541Ultimate 2. TAP version has no hi-score saver, since there is no need for one.


Update: 10th April 2023: Fixed hi score saver on D64 version. Also added .zip version if you wish to download everything together.
