Overview of My Submission
Snake Arcade is a retro themed snake game with a live highscore board.
I took this inspiration from the popular Nokia snake game which I used to play in my dad's mobile back when I was a kid. I had so much fun playing it. Moreover my friends used to brag about their scores but there's was no scoreboard to track them. And that's why I decided to build one with a highscore board 🤠.
To make it more fun and challenging I have added a little twist. Whenever the golden fruit appears, you get 50 points more but there's a 20% chance that your score will be reduced by 50 points 😜. So are you willing to take the challenge? Compete with your friends and top the leaderboard!

This is how the architecture of my Snake Arcade looks like. If you wonder how I designed this, I have used Figma :)
How I integrated Appwrite:
I have hosted the Appwrite instance on a DigitalOcean droplet using their 'One-Click Droplet' in the DigitalOcean Marketplace. You can find the tutorial here: https://dev.to/appwrite/announcing-appwrite-one-click-droplets-on-digitalocean-1hd8
In order to build the highscore board, I have used the Appwrite's database to store the highscore of each players. The database schema looks like this:
Now, to query the top 10 highscores I have indexed the database based on the userId to locate the required data without having to search through every document for result.
Finally I have installed the Appwrite SDK in my React app using their npm package.
Thank you Dev & Appwrite!
This is my first time using Appwrite. Its so simple and easy to learn that any beginners can use it in their project. I would recommend everyone to use Appwrite 🚀.

Great job with this one! Awesome work
Thank you 😀
Please leave a comment here if you have played the game yet, along with your player name.
The game seems great. But I think you should make it a little more secure. Right now I can open the network tab, see your requests and make any changes to high scores that I wish to. I can even edit other player's scores. (I have not done that though don't worry).
Hey thanks for letting me know :) I fixed this issue.
I Think that it isn't entirely fixed, as I still managed to post one (the Lucca with 100000 points) one possible way to fix that would be on start of every game create some type of One time password, and validate if is valid on each post. I think that this would prevent things like that.
But really nice job tho!
Just tested, it is still possible to patch past scores!
Lets connect on Discord and try to fix it. My id: Mav#8994

Keep up the good work! 👍🏽
