Snake by Marco Cavanna (Italy)
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! Using .NET, Marco created a WPF application combined with an open source graphics library to produce 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!
