My first rea1 game in graphical mode I ever wrote: VIPERS! Just like the
classic "Nibbles" (or Ibit, Rattler Race, Snake, etc..) you will take
control over a 'worm' and make sure (s)he eats all "food" (while
growing longer) and doesn't run into any wall. But Vipers has all kinds of
special elements like one-way arrows, moving/crushing blocks/walls, bouncing
balls, traffic lights, telebricks, enemy vipers, shooting enemy vipers,
teleporters, and more exotic things.
Furthermore, you can play singleplayer levels alone or with a friend, or play multiplayer levels with upto four players (one keyboard) and upto 12 computer controlled vipers. You can play with or without weapons. A lot of options.
But, the game ain't quite finished yet... haven't improved it the last few months (first my computer broke, then I began working on "noname") so this very old version is all there is. There are just a few levels (once there were 32, but then I decided to change the file format and I never got time to rewrite them), so you won't encounter most objects (no moving stuff, no enemy vipers).
Still want to download? (at your own risk)

BTW: If you really like Vipers, write me, and I just might think about finishing it...
I made Vipers after Nibbles, a demo game
for Microsoft QBasic. You'll need this to run Nibbles. Years ago I rewrote
Nibbles in FirstBasic (=PowerBasic), named Mibbles. Mibbles is just like
Nibbles, the only difference is that the program is much smaller (easier to
understand I hope), and can be compiled to an executable.
(Mibbles can also be run under QBasic by replacing delay D by something
like for i=1 to D*50000 : next on a P133 (that's why I quit writing in
