Neat, looks very good. I like the 'tail' blocks fading to the back ground color. Perhaps the backgrounds can change when you hit some sort of score milestone.

Very good looking! Like SoggyWaffles said, it'd probably be neat if the background was changing at some kind of interval.

Love this. I'm a massive NIN geek though.... (obviously -- look at my avatar). But I agree, the screenshots kinda gave the impression that the backgrounds would gently sweep in colours or something. I imagine that would look fantastic.

My one criticism is that the snake moves a little to fast for me, but then, it's a part of the challenge. Nice work man! :)

Very nice! The music is nice, it fits well with the background I reckon. As Lafolie said, it's a bit fast for me, but ah well.

I'll see about making slow/medium/fast speeds. The problem with a slower speed though is that it looks pretty 'choppy', not sure how to fix that.

The next version will probably make the background change a bit every 100 score or so. A constantly changing background would be amazing, but I don't quite know how to go about doing that without murdering framerates yet. :P

You could make it so that the snake overlaps half or even a quarter of a square for a small period of time.

How is the background being rendered at current? I'm too lazy to look at the code right now, but I checked out the project folder, it seems that you are creating a composite imagedata object out of tiles or something?

It draws the tile grid to a framebuffer while setting the current colour using various functions that take the x/y positions of the tiles. When it transitions between different backgrounds it first draws the new background to a different framebuffer with 0 alpha and then slowly fades it in while fading the old one out.

I tried it without framebuffers yesterday and got about 11 fps. o.O

You could create small collection backgrounds and seamlessly scroll/fade them. Would that work?
