Abandonware – Nibbles.bas (PC)

Though very old, most people knows Nibbles.bas

Only with other names… like snakes or Tron? XD
Ancient stuff here people. Nibbles.bas came together with Dos 5.0 along with a programming language called QBasic.
QBasic is among the first programming languages I tried to play with when I was a kid, together with DBase 3 Plus, Clipper and LOGO graphics.
It is “.bas” because it’s actually a code file. You had to compile it first before playing.
And as you can see on the video, some versions of it came with a little bug as gift. 😛
