(new in this version: selectable backgrounds!)

Each player drives a viper. Controlling a viper is very simple: you just turn left and right. This is why all the players can fit on a single keyboard. And when it gets started, it's tremendous fun – kids get excited and love the game! The rules are simple, but the game is involving.

The goal of each Vipers player is to score points by crossing gray gaps, avoiding dangerous objects, capturing food, and eliminating other players. Unlike most popular snake-style games, Vipers allows you to turn at any angle. The program maintains statistics for each player, and places the best on a high scores table.

A real situation is captured, where all three vipers
were going from bottom to top.

  • Blue was going first,
  • White a little bit later (crossing one Blue's gap),
  • and the master Green one just after White,
    crossing two gaps, and then another two!)
