Snake is a video game concept which originated during the late 1970s in arcades. The name applies to the general game design; the original was not named Snake, and there is no definitive version of the game. This is a snake game developed in C/C++. A snake is moving you have to use it to eat some food . As you eat food your tail becomes longer and point counts.
