Zaratustra Productions' Dammit Snake slipped past us when it was first released, but it's worth checking out, as it presents a unique and challenging take on the Snake gameplay formula.

As in the original Snake, you must guide a snake around a single-screen arena, eating as many dots as possible without touching the walls or your snake's own body. The twist? Every time you eat a dot, your snake splits in half, and you retain simultaneous control over both segments.

Gameplay continues as long as at least one snake remains alive, but segments remain on-screen even after death, making it a challenge to survive in an increasingly cluttered environment. It's pretty tough!
