I recently made Snake for the Astro Pi, just for fun really, but I am putting it online as I would like to see what others can do with it – it is literally screaming out to be hacked and improved.
I’ve given some ideas and tips but there is much more than could be done.
Anyone budding coders up for the challenge?
I started with the code I originally wrote for Minecraft – Snake and made the changes so that rather than creating blocks in Minecraft it turned on leds and used the joystick to control the motion. I was also surprised by how much I improved the overall structure of the code, it wasn’t poorly coded it was just a bit untidy.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
