This is something I made this morning. I wanted to see if I could make a simple game in a couple of hours and I use to love playing snake on my old Nokia back when I was at school (yep mobile phones where invented before I left school – I’m not that old!!). Originally I was going to make it in Flash but a simple game like this is perfect for canvas and it’s an example of using the right technology for the job, rather than just sticking to something you know well.

Click here to play and see if you can beat my high score of 44. I’ll probably update it with a scoreboard soon. Oh and don’t try and run it in IE as it won’t work (no canvas support).

PS. It probably won’t work on your Nokia either but a mobile version could be an option in the future.
