Here it is. The moment you've all been waiting for! My newest level hot off the press! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you...
BattleSnake 3000 is an arcade game which is basically a hybrid of the classic arcade game, Snake, and Tron Lightcycle racing. It features:
- Single Player Classic Mode
Play a game of classic Snake. Collect berries to make your Snake grow, whilst being careful not to collide with yourself. You only have 1 life..... use it wisely!
- 2 Player Battle Mode
This is where the meat of the game lies. You have 3 lives. You have power-ups. You have berries...... what more could you possibly want in a game mode??? Full instructions are available in-game. Speaking of which......
- A Handy Tutorial
Feeling a little lost? Have no idea what to do? Don't fear, this handy tutorial will guide you, giving you details of each game mode, and detailing each of the 6 available power-ups.
- Track Selection
No LBP arcade game/remake/thingybob is complete without a track selection. Featuring some of your favourite LBP 2 artists, as well as a couple of tracks by myself (which are given as a prize). Track number 6 is a particular favourite of mine, and I hope it will be a particular favourite of yours for decades to come.
A good connection is recommended for 2P mode, though it's not essential.
Of course, given that this is F4F thread, feedback will be very much appreciated and will be given back in kind. My internet connection isn't fantastic, so it's much easier for me to give F4F on single player levels, though multiplayer level creators shouldn't be discouraged.

Thanks for a feedback of Cybernetic Adventures Sigma. This fun game reminds me of one of the games I played a long time ago.
The retro visuals looked good thanks to hologram effects.
I didn't get a chance to check out the music tracks of this level, but the first one has great retro interactive music of MGS1 Encounter (LBP Remix).
The gameplay of this level is definitely like the BattleSnake game. Although using D-pads is highly recommended instead of the left control stick.
A fun retro game. A yay.
I like everything I about the game. I enjoyed playing and seeing the content pretty good.
Sounded like it was a real game. Pretty good work, I havent even messed with the beat program. Probably not going to so great job.
It seem to be a little laggy when I would use the Joy stick. The better response time came with the D-pad i'm not saying it was perfect, but it allowed me to play with a more less lag turn.
I Enjoyed the game and all of its aspects. Pretty good work it shows it has a lot of time spent on it. GJ !!
I will probably get around to playing your level and giving you feedback this weekend. Which level would you like feedback on?
Thanks for your feedback to my Geometry Wars Beta.
They're very well done, good job with the "pixel-like" effect.
SOUND: Well chosen sounds. About music, the track 1 was awesome. I also like tracks 9, 10 and 12 and another one that I just don't remember the number.
GAMEPLAY: Wery well done simulation of Snake arcade game. You could improve the left joystick's response with "higher than zero" gates. Online was very laggy, but my connection sucks (2 MB download, 250 to 500 kB upload). Probably you can find a way to simplify logic functions if possible and increase thermo's free space and logic's performance, reducing LaG this way.
OVERALL: Wery good job, no doubt. This is the kind of level that really deserves Yays and Hearts.
The lag may be down to connection. I don't think it's a fault of the logic though. There isn't actually that much logic, compared to what you might think. I think the lag may be down to the way the snake moves - one large grid square every 0.1s. That might be a little too fast for the game to handle at times. Unfortunately, 0.2s is too slow. The actual game arena takes up only a small amount of thermo. The majority of the thermo comes from the menu and tutorial, which are destroyed as soon as you enter the game mode, so thermo isn't an issue.
I don't know what "higher than zero gates" are, but control of the snake is easier with the d-pad. I had to implement a little (only very tiny) delay between pressing the direction and the snake turning, to ensure that the snake only moves on-grid.

Retro style, can't complain. Menu is well-made.
Sound is really good. Track selection = good choice.
At first I didn't like lag, when you are changing direction, but then I get used to it and I must say, that controlls are pretty awsome! I didn't have problem making "fast 180 degree turns", so feeding snake was fun. Game is rather easy, I complete it at one go.
Old, good snake, without glitches

I wanted to make it longer, but you're only allowed a max of 100 emitters.
I shall give your level a go when I can, I'm busy on other games at the moment, plus it's difficult for me to find time to play multiplayer.
I'll try yours when I can.
This is a Greater Than Zero Gate:
Sequencer's Input Value is set to Positional. The Battery inside the Sequencer is set to +100% (default).
This Gate's output is on if the input signal's strenght is not zero. For example, if input = +0,01% (or -0,01%) then output is 100%. If snake's head uses a mover and you wire L joystick to Greater Than Zero Gates (I guess you'd need 4 of them), signals from joystick will become 100% even if original strenght is the lowest, making movers to react faster when a player is using the joystick.
Anyway I played it with the d-pad, but I'd bet players would like to have a well set joystick system.
First of all, let me say I love the retro Snake games, and this reinvention of such a classic piece of gaming genius is a must-play for the more nostalgic gamers among you, and just pure fun for anyone else. Although I did find the controls largely unresponsive at times, I feel this has more to do with the game itself and possibly my controller rather than your engineering of the level!
That said, it'll still hold the attention of those looking for a fun retro-gaming experience. Thank you for bringing it to us undeserving masses!
Oh and i've fixed the bug you mentioned in my Sewer-Cide level!
See some of the above responses for my suspected reasons for the unresponsiveness. I myself don't use the analog stick to control the snake, I only use the d-pad and it works fine for me.
Yeap D-pad works better.
Played this a while ago and I must say that it's quite an addictive classic game brought back to life in LBP2. Also the retro environment with the pixels goes back to the good old days of gaming. Nice track selection too. I don't actually have anything bad to say about it or anything that needs changing as you've done a good job at it.
Just played this level and here is my feedback...
+ Great retro visuals
+ Gameplay was excellent, simple to grasp and quite addictive.
+ Replayability is aloso very good, offering different options for 1 player and 2 player
- The snake tended to get stuck whenever it re-entered the frame. I am not a logic expert so unsure what to suggest.
An excellent retro gaming experience.
