Pysnakes is a one or two player game of snake written in python using the pygame SDL bindings. It was originally written for a competition in the British made Linux Format magazine. It should work on any platform with a pygame release. It's been tested on Ubuntu and Windows. The design of the levels and the game in general are heavily inspired by the "nibbles.bas" demo program that used to ship with Microsoft Quick Basic.

As a python script the software is also the source code, you can download one of the two versions attached to this post, they're identical except for the compression method. There's some documentation in the archive, but it should be fairly intuitive.
