what i meant is... i thought ahead.. but by the time i got the 99th coin my snake grew long enough that you only have a few open spaces(assuming you went from the outside in, and stuck to the walls without leaving gaps) And assuming there are skulls in the way... you run out of room fast. Unless you got a really lucky skull placement.

yeah. i found the best way to get high scores if you get a good placement of skulls near the bottom... That seems to be the best for me atleast.

I think i found a glitch though. I just got about 80-90 points, and at about 30 there were only 3 coins on the board.. and when i started getting into higher numbers i had less and less coins. Finally i got to about 90 and i only had one coin... ?

Maybe the randomization code placed a coin on one of the skulls but just didn't show up because the skull was already there.

Happened again. Maybe the randomization is trying to place the coin where i already am? I assume you have a fallback protocol that if the snakes there it automatically adds it to the snake.

hmmm... never happened to me... The game makes sure that the tile is empty before placing a coin, or so it should at least, maybe something wrong with it. I'll check it tomorrow.

i got 153. Would have had much higher butwent one squar too far.. not bad considering i didnt have that good skull placement.

That glitch where coins keep disapearing happens a lot to me now and i think i know why. Sometimes i get the coins to line up. And i get 3-5 real fast in a row. It seems when i get the first coin, The coin tries to reapear in the empty space behind my snake. But my snake instantly grows.. with make that space not empty anymore and makes the coin part of my snake.. so i grow more. But you dont have a protocol to create 2 coins at once.. So it only creates the next coin in get. So technically i get 2 coins at once...

That was confusing soo ill try and explain with a pictureish thing.
1,2,3,4,5: Coins <ooo:snake

..............12345<ooooooooo5

So when i get coin 5 it reapears behind me. I grow and absorb it, but i also get coin number 4 at the same time. It only replaces one coin. This happends about once every 5 games.

man. i love your game and its very addicintg but i have a few comments/requests.

The mute sound option is cool. But mayeb have one that mutes the music. another mutes the coin catching noise. I like the coin nouse. Hate the music. Cant have one without the other.

Make the snake change color once in a while. like after 50 or so. Or every 20...

-Have the end bubble of the snake be a different color... this would help me out a little more...

Have difficulty levels. Easy = Snake, no skulls. Normal=As it is now Hard= Faster.
