This was one of the first projects I attempted well over a year ago, I tried to read up and find ways to make the snake function. I did not find much beyond Shadow clones talked about on the Gdevelop forum and ideas and loops in C and Java I tried but could not replicate here in my engine of choice.
Ultimately I pulled it off now all be it the basic nostalgia nokia throwback version. I did end up having to a very long winded coding of each segment (that is why I stopped at 100). I am sure a smarter person could take a look at my events and show me a better a way - if that is you I would love to have the pleasure of your review and advice.
Like i said I have tried probably over 10 times to make this kind of project and tried so many conditions and events (some I was convinced should have worked - still here we are).
Either way I love Gdevelop and am stoked I made a version of Snake and I can finally move onto other niggling homages I long to make.
Hope every one had a great New Years
