This is an adapted, improved version of the popular javacave game, written in QtRuby.


chmod +x snake(gl).rb
run it.

QtRuby bindings

Don't know which specific versions (I use the latest ones and those work); if someone has an older version it doesn't work with, notify me and I'll either fix it, or put a note here saying it won't work.

The only difference between the 'normal' and OpenGL version is the OpenGL version doesn't flicker (the code is 99% the same, it just uses a QGLWidget instead of a QWidget), and presumably requires you to have working OpenGL.

Later on I might try and replace some of the intermediate pixmaps I draw to with QGLWidgets as well to see if it improves performance much.
