The last ball is just too hard to hit; definitely would like to see at least two bounces to let me get a better chance to get in front of the ball; interesting concept, would be interesting to see more fleshed out.

It took me a few tries to get the hang of what was going on... but once I did it was very interesting! I have to say, I've never seen a game about running in circles trying to shoot yourself work so well. 

One critique: it's a bit weird that the bullet moves smoothly but the snake moves in grid time... this often makes the ricochet a bit unpredictable, especially if your snake is already pretty short.

I like it, interesting idea turning the classic snake into a shooter.

Nice idea! It takes a very familiar concept and modifies it enough that it feels quite different. Well done!

Nice design! Replacing eating with shooting makes for an interesting mechanic. I like that you clearly distinguish between the just fired (blue) bullets and ricocheting (red) bullets.

Thanks for the review.

 Yea the blue/ red bullets feature came from a debugging session to see what was happening. I liked it so I kept it in.

well done, dude, well done. it's snake but different! snake without eating. i got through the first round and then immediately died. definitely gonna keep playing after the jam is done. nice work.

Really enjoyed this game, will you keep improving it after the jam? I would love to it look nicer and have controller support.

I plan to, I had listed some nice to have features that I did not get around to in the Jam.
