Snake  

"Snake is a game of tactical skill and strategic planning for the Sorcerer. Run the snake over one digit numbers without crashing the snake into the walls of into itself.

Your score is the sum of all the numbers it has "eaten". The higher the better. As the snake "digests" the numbers it grows longer and becomes harder to control.

If you take too much time to run over a number, it disappears and another one appears in a different place on the screen."

The Snake variety of games originated with the arcade game Blockade, released by Gremlin in 1976. Snake is like a one person version of Blockade but instead of having to block your opponent, you must eat food (here numbers) and avoid to block/eat yourself.

We have no release date for this Exidy Sorcerer version, but it might be one of the first implementation of the Snake game on a microcomputer.

    Snake was inspired by Hustle (Arcade)
