What is this?
Snake Party is my final release on Xbox Live Indie Games, and is a follow-up to Snake360, my first release on XBLIG.

The original, latest, and final version is 2.0, released on August 31, 2016.

Here is a list of known issues and/or unintended behaviors in the XBLIG release of Snake Party.

Here's some info that will help you out. But ultimately, you'll need to rely on your skills to get those high scores!

Understanding Rank

A number called rank determines some big factors in this game:
- The number of enemies that appear. The higher the rank, the more enemies you'll see.
- The movement speed of both enemies and enemy projectiles. The higher rank goes, the faster all of that will be.
- The duration of the encounters at the end of Stages 4 and 5.
