Getting Started

To run the game locally, follow these steps:

  1. Clone this repository:

    git clone [email protected]:<your-user-name>/snakes-game.git
  2. Navigate to the project directory:

    cd snake-game
  3. Install the required dependencies. Yarn is recommended:

  4. Run the build script:

    yarn build
  5. Start the game by serving the build output:

    yarn preview

NOTE: The development environment causes the components to re-render, causing the game logic for the canvas to be duplicated and appear buggy. That’s why it’s recommended to build the app and run the build output to avoid the re-renders.

  • ↑ (Up) or W – Move Up
  • ↓ (Down) or S – Move Down
  • ← (Left) or A – Move Left
  • → (Right) or D – Move Right
