Video Game: Snake
Snake is a Top-Down View Maze Game, with a twist; you not only navigate the maze, you are the maze. You play a snake, slithering around in a pit eating food. Every time you eat, you score some points, and you get longer. Eventually, you get so long that you have to navigate around yourself. The game ends when you crash into yourself or a wall.

Based on an arcade game from 1976 called Blockade. First appeared in its present form in the late 1970s on the TRS-80, Commodore PET, and Apple ][. Port Overdosed in the extreme, because both the program and the graphics are so simple. In 1997 it became the first Mobile Phone Game when it appeared on Nokia phones.
