Loving the updates. Can't wait for the full game.
I was going to make a daily update, slowly revealing elements of the game, as I actually thought the game design was more or less final.
One tester (Rasmus, my son, 8 years old) co-designed the pear, but disagreed with the direction of power-up. Soon thereafter he absolutely hated my addition of the lemon.
Another tester has me going back to allowing moving backwards into yourself. The problem is, if you try and make a tight turn, like already moving right, then down and left. If it's not timed to the movement of the snake (including speed increase and lagging), the key status (last key pressed), may go from right to left between moves (even though down may register for a few frames), and since you can't move back unto yourself, you'd end up just going right, right and right. I think it's better to crash into yourself, instead of being totally ignored and get frustrated by a joystick, keyboard or game that doesn't seem to work properly.
