Project:- 10/500 Snake Game project.


The Snake Game is a classic arcade game where the player maneuvers a snake to collect food items. Each time the snake eats a piece of food, it grows longer, making the game progressively more challenging. The game ends when the snake runs into itself or the walls.


  • Simple Controls: Navigate the snake using arrow keys.

  • Score Tracking: Keep track of the player's score as the snake consumes food.

  • Increasing Difficulty: The snake grows longer and moves faster with each food item consumed.

Technologies Used

  • JavaScript: For game logic and interactivity.

  • HTML: To structure the game's layout.

  • CSS: For styling the game interface.
