Kenta Cho has turned Snake into a top-down shooter of sorts, requiring laser accuracy. Super Speed Snake Chases Cursor makes Snake either incredibly difficult or easy, then, depending on your mouse skills. The snake certainly chases and obeys the direction of the cursor, but it moves so fast that only the most skilled mouse movers can win.
This seems to be an attempt to solve problems with spatial/time judgment in traditional Snake games. I know I find it painful when the snake is just one row or column off from eating the snack, and the half-reticle really helps to line up the snake's next turn.
That is, if I can move the mouse fast enough! I don't have a respectable score to submit on this leader board, but feel free to brag in the comments below how you managed.
