    Talking Snake Attack ***Updated with computer A.I!***

    By popular demand (I think three people asked for it =P) I decided to take some time and put in a computer player. The only weird thing is that it sticks to walls, but I think that has advantages and disadvantages, and the advatages outweigh the disadvantages. Still, it's essentially a multiplayer game, as the singleplayer gets kind of boring. (I have gotten beaten by it a few times, by the way.)

    I made it in Borland and included the dll this time. =D The course code is there too.

    So what do you suggest I work on next? I fully fledged nibbles type game with a tail that follows? Or a deep text-based rpg. Or should I just skip those and start on graphical IDE's (I've been looking at Allegro.)

    Thanks. =)

    text based RPG's take ages to make and get boring to play quite fast, i recommend you start on graphics, Allegro is cool, but i use OpenGL (osme nice tutorials on the net). you could expand on ur game, but its good enought as it is.
    No I DIDN'T steal my name from Misro$ofts OS, it's pure coincidence.

    The lines around my name (-) are only there because i needed a name over the 3 character minimum letter limit
