A PET Snake

Recently, I have been programming some very old machines for a bit of fun, namely the Sinclair ZX80 and Commodore PET. And last evening I finished a game for Monument Microgames (MM) and it is available as a free download from the aforementioned website. It's a simple 'gobble and grow' affair, as MM point out, and requires 16K or more of RAM and a 40 columns display. I will get around to making the 80 columns version shortly.

If there is enough interest in this release, and in Commodore PET software in general, then MM will be publishing this with another game on real cassette and possibly floppy diskette. For more information, Twitter me @YearOfCodes. For now, here's a screen shot. Enjoy!
