Game instructions:
First choose at which level (speed) you which to play, and then click the 'New Game' button to start the game. The object of the game is to simply move the snake around the playing field, while avoiding to move into any of the walls or any part of the snake itself. Points are scored by eating (moving into) the food that appear on the playing field. Each time a piece of food has been consumed, the length of the snake will increase. The snake is moved by using either the four buttons beneath the playing field, or by using the arrow keys on the keyboard. If the controls don't work, click the game screen with the mouse, to give keyboard focus to the game. You can change the language of the interface by clicking the flags.

Problems running the game:
First of all, to run the game you will need to have Java installed. If you don't have that already, then you can install it from here:

If you still cannot run the game and are getting a message about your security settings, then it's because the newest versions of Java are overdoing security to such an extent that Java applets now as default cannot run unless they are signed by an official certificate authority. That's a bit too much for a simple game like this, but at least there is a way to get it to run without being signed. Simply add my website to your list of trusted websites (if you do trust it). Then instead of the game being completely blocked from running, you will now get a security prompt where you can choose to run it or not. Here's a link to the official instructions on how to add a trusted website:
