For System 7.0 - 7.6 - Mac OS 9
This game works with: Basilisk II,

In Snavely, your job is to control two snakes. The object of the game is two-fold: keep your snakes from escaping off the edge of the board, and to maneuver them so they cross paths. When the snakes cross each other's path, an 'egg' is created. Each occurrence of this also nets you some points. After a certain number of eggs have come into existence, a 'snakehole' will appear at the top of the screen, which both snakes must pass through in order to progress to the next level.

This game can be played alone but is best experienced with a friend, as controlling two snakes at once can get very tricky. Add in some unfriendly 'thingies' that crush eggs and a few odds and sods that effect snake and egg moment, and the result is a fun and unique arcade experience that challenges and rewards.

No luck in SheepShaver running 8.6 on iMac /c ROM: just the ol' beachball.

If you've never played one of the hundreds of similar 'snake games,' this might not be the place to start...since this time, you're controlling two snakes at once. And rather than simply eating apples and avoiding walls, you have to maneuver them in concert to form 'eggs' that will open the door off the level. The co-operative theme is best appreciated in two-player mode.
