Description from Intellivision catalog:
    You each start off with little lines that start to grow.

    They grow fast, tangling, weaving, writhing like magic beanstalks. And you're at the controls, trying to completely enclose the other guy so he can't grow any more.

    This is a game of lightning quick strategic decisions. Hesitate...or slip...and you'll find yourself surrounded.

Back of Box:
    SNAFU cartridge.

    Pit your fast thinking and reflexes head-to-head against a friend ...take on the computer! Grab all the territory you can and get your opponents into a corner - trapped! OR, maneuver your twisting, turning serpent fast, to "bite off" part of your opponent's tail - before he gets you! There are 16 DIFFERENT VARIETIES OF GAME PLAY!

    Every competitor keeps moving fast, trying to capture as much territory as possible! Don't run into anything, or you'll be out of the action!

    In a completely different version, move around the obstacles. Bite a rival's tail and make him lose a point. Cut him down to zero and you win!

  • 16 varieties of game play!
  • Four speeds, and you decide how many rounds to play.
  • Make your serpent move vertically, horizontally, diagonally - but move it fast!
  • Play alone against the computer, or one-on-one against a friend - or take on a friend and the computer!
  • Action sound effects and music, too!
