Super finally the desktop version thank you very much,
Is it possible to launch it in full screen and in a window in the future?
And as supersmo suggerer, 8 controllers are compatible?
Thank you for your excellent work with all these new modes, this game is very complete, it's the best snake like.

Thanks! I think the full screen windowed option should be doable, we'll look at that for a future update. So far we haven't been able to get 8 simultaneous controllers working. If you have software (xpadder or something) that can map gamepads to keyboard inputs, that might work as a substitute.

Thank you for answering so quickly, great for the window / full screen option,

To map my controllers I use Joytokey, but I already had some problem with some games, but for now everything works for Viper League,
I hope you find the solution in the future, otherwise this solution will do the trick.

Also when I add the player 7, the game stops completely I tried on 2 different pc.

Cool game. Love that it supports 8 players.

If you make a desktop version it would be awesome if it would support 8 gamepads via DirectInput.  :-)

Hey, you have probably stopped production on this game, but I would like you to know, a level editor, a few more tiles, and some of the following powerups would be cool:

~Some sort of tile randomizer, just to shake up the game a little bit :D

~A location switcher, that switches the locations of players (plus a slight invincibility period)

~A random powerup (just gives you a random one)

~A slowdown (either like the speedup, but opposite, or a time slower)

Thanks for reading my comment. I really have nothing bad to say about the concept, and I love playing it with my friends. If you are still working on the game, I just want to say that I appreciate what you are doing and would like to thank you for giving me a fun multiplayer game.

Hey there, thanks so much for the comments. Yes, right now development of the game is on hold, however the feedback is much appreciated! Glad you are enjoying the game.

Great snake games, with many levels and 8 players it's really fun,


Do you think add a download version? (To play offline)

Hey thanks, glad you enjoyed it. Yes, we'd definitely like to release a desktop version in the future.

Nice game, thank you for your work, I am also very interested to the desktop version of this game, it would be really great.
