Based on an arcade game from 1976 called ''VideoGame/{{Blockade}}''. First appeared in its present form in the late [[TheSeventies 1970s]] on the UsefulNotes/TRS80, UsefulNotes/CommodorePET, and UsefulNotes/AppleII. PortOverdosed in the extreme, because both the program and the graphics are so simple. In 1997, it became the first MobilePhoneGame when it appeared on Nokia phones most famously on the Nokia 3310 handset. Some versions, rather than being endless, reset the snake after eating enough food and advance to a new level, with each level after the first having pre-built walls.

Added DiffLines:

* VegetarianCarnivore: A lot of the variants of the game have the snake eat fruit, mushrooms etc. instead of other animals or standard baits (presumably to [[PredatorsAreMean keep the snake sympathetic]]). In reality, snakes are exclusively carnivores.
