I got a While loop in my program that's the exact same for the 4 directions, but it doesn't seem to go up correctly. So far I have a basic snake that's 1 "." long and whenever it goes left down or right, you can see it, but whenever it goes up, it's barely seen. The only way I've seen to fix it is to put a For(I,1,25 End right after that. Is there anything else I could do? If you want I'll post the code.

Lol, I was thinking about it. My thoughts on mine is that going up the screen is somehow faster than going in any other direction? Because my code for each direction is exactly the same except for their respective actions I.e. which coordinate which direction.

This is only the basic code for going up (I'm planning on adding the main parts like making the snake longer and stuff later). I just wanted to see how the "." would run.
This is also the only arrow with a for loop in it so that you can actually see the dot going up. If you want it to be invisible take it off. Btw, this runs on a Silver edition so it could run slower on a regular 83+.

Lbl 4
While 1
If Y=0 or Y=62 or X=0 or X=94
Goto 3
If A=24 or A=26
Goto 2

A little explanation...
Str2 is the "." which gives the snake the look. The variable F is the length of the snake which tells the other text when to erase the snake. Label 3 is the screen that tells you you're dead. Label 2 is the directional part which establishes your direction.

Try Pxl-On(Y,X instead of that Text(Y,X,Str2

Also, don't use Y on the graphscreen, it'll get messed up.
