Nibbler is an arcade game by Rock-Ola Manufacturing Corporation. Its gameplay is a variant of Pac-Man and Snake: the object is to navigate a virtual snake through an enclosed maze, while consuming dots along the way. The length of the snake increases with each object consumed, making the game more difficult. The player must also avoid colliding with walls or obstacles, and must also avoid colliding with the snake's own body sections. After all the objects on the screen have been eaten, the player progresses to the next wave, involving harder obstacles and/or higher game speeds.
Rock-Ola's Nibbler is an arcade game that plays like a mix of Pac-Man and Snake. The player controls Nibbler, a snake, through a maze and has to collect all the dots. To complete a level all dots have to be consumed. As they are the length of Nibbler increases and things get harder since a life is lost when the snake collides with its own body. There is also a time limit so the player can't take too long. For each new level the speed increases so the player has to plan his route since there is little time for decision making. The player has five lives and when they are all gone it's game over. A new life is earned after every fourth level. Points are earned for each dot collected and the amount of points increase with each new level. Bonus points are awarded based on how much time is left.
