You need the latest version of the Flash Player from Adobe to play Oroboros!

There's a later version than 9?

This is more closely related to fl0w than to the old Snake games.

I much prefer fl0w, it's far more peaceful and hypnotic. This game is good, but it gets too frantic and frustrating. Personally, I can't react correctly to that many things coming at me at once.

It does start quite slow, though, and even for those of us without hyper-caffeinated reflexes, it provides good fun for a bit.

On preview: DU, did you turn scripting off?

I didn't, but I tried it just now and it's still broken.

Also, another thought... this is a game where you're an undersea life form, but there are missiles coming from launchers that travel down the edges of the screen.

It makes it very apparent that this is a game... both by making the screen borders a part of the world, and also by violating the premise of an undersea lifeform. Since when does anyone launch missiles/torpedoes at "fish"?

fl0w is really a lot better.

I dunno, DU, works fine here. Maybe you do need to update Flash?

Spelling, spelling.

fl0w is better, but this is fun for a bit. Less meditative, more spastic.

This is great. I love the RPG-ish upgrade and stat system.

Has no one else discovered you can just do a two pixel twitch and stay out of the way of everything, rarely using the space bar as necessary? Sure does make the game boring...
