Instructor: Rebecca | Difficulty: Intermediate | Series: Snake Game

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 learn how to create the head of your snake and get it moving. By the end of the class, your snake will be able to turn realistically as well as move upwards, downwards, leftwards, and rightwards. Let’s get this snake slithering!
