How To Make A Snake Game In JavaScript : A Beginners Guide

How To Make A Snake Game In JavaScript

Basic Snake HTML and JavaScript Game

Snake is a fun game to make as it doesn't require a lot of code (less than 100 lines with all comments removed). This is a basic implementation of the snake game, but it's missing a few things intentionally and they're left as further exploration for the reader.

Create a fun Snake game with <100 lines of code using HTML and JavaScript. Basic version with room for exploration.

Further Exploration

  • Score
    • When the snake eats an apple, the score should increase by one. Use context.fillText() to display the score on the screen
  • Mobile and touchscreen support
  • Better apple spawning
    • Currently, the apple spawns in any random grid in the game, even if the snake is already on that spot. Improve it so it only spawns in empty grid locations

Important note: I will answer questions about the code but will not add more features or answer questions about adding more features.
