A modernized Visual COBOL version of Snake, by Marco Cavanna (Italy)
This modernized Visual COBOL version of Snake, by Marco Cavanna, took the contest by storm and by unanimous decision is our runaway competition winner. Marco was able to take a classic gaming experience to the next level by going 3 dimensional! Marco created what is probably the world’s first 3-d graphics gaming engine in COBOL.
Staying true to the original game, Marco even incorporated effects in this modern revival. Just as addictive now as it was then, a fantastic twist on a retro gaming classic – we loved it!
