This venerable console game throws you into a pit with a hungry snake, baits you with dollar signs, and offers you an escape at any time. Rather like a game show.
Collect money until the snake corners you and eats you (and your prize), or your nerves finally crumble and you slip out the exit.
Take a look at the man page before you play; there are some tips and special commands there that will help. Most notable? The w key pitches you through a space warp, a la robots, and gives you a new lease on life.

snake might give you a challenge.
Pinball players will appreciate one final touch: Match the last digit of your score to a random number, and win a bonus!
