Can you use Python (and Python turtles) to build a snake game? Why, yes, you can! This series teaches you how to your own “snake” that grows longer with each apple it eats! Our slithery green python will be able to snake its way around the screen, chomping down apples, until either the screen can’t hold it anymore or it makes a wrong turn.

In this episode, you’ll add score and high score variables to keep track of how good your snake is at eating all the apples. You'll even make sure your high score is saved and updated each time you get new all-time high score! It’s time to finish up our snake game.
