1.1 What is Nibbles Arcade?
Nibbles Arcade is a game that runs pretty much like all the other Nibbles and MoFrog games. You go around collecting pieces of food, but when you do your 'snake becomes longer. But is written in TI-BASIC and contains a plethera of options and 3 different game variations to play. One where you negotiate levels to collect about 15 pieces of food, where you just try to collect as many pieces of food as possible, and one where you go head-to-head against the computer to try to get to the food before the computer does.

Objective-The point of Nibbles Arcade is to collect as many food pieces as possible without running into anything
- Scoring is very simple, the number of pieces of food you collect is your score. In the Vs. Computer mode your score is (yourscore-compscore), if the computer gets a higher score than you, you lose.
- There are four different codes that can be activated. You get the codes for every third level you beat in the Levels game mode. NO CHEATING, so don't look through the source code to get the codes.(and the passwords are encrypted, so you couldn't find them in the code anyway!!). You type in the codes in the Codes menu in the Options Menu.
