Apparently Snake was first programmed as an arcade game called Blockade in 1976!! It first appeared on mobiles in the Nokia 6610 in 1997. I built my first website using the HTML editor in Netscape in 1994!! Microsoft did not even have a browser back then. Bill Gates didn’t think the Internet would go anywhere. Ha!
I am not quite sure in what year I coded my Snake page. Some time between 1997 and 2004 I had a serious crash on my machines. If I remember correctly it was the Melissa virus - anyone remember that? Also known as Chernobyl. (It was a long time ago - it could have been something else! But I did get attacked by Melissa.) I had to build a fresh clean machine, immunise it against infection and then try to recover the files off of the old HDD using pretty involved data recovery tools which read block by block and tried to reconstruct the files. I lost huge amounts of stuff but somehow Snake was one of the projects that was mostly saved uncorrupted.
So my files are dated 2004 as per when they were rebuilt.
I never posted my code anywhere. But there were lots of versions of Snake done over the years for many platforms. It was real fun to get it working. Maybe if I find an old copy of Netscape and run it in a virtual win95 machine the game might run. If I get some time…
