Snake Escape (Compute's Gazette)
In this game, your goal is to move a snake out of a poisonous garden. There are approximately 150 poisonous plants on the screen after you enter your skill level. The snake appears in the upper-left corner after all poisonous plants have been placed. You then attempt to get the snake to the escape hole within the time limit you chose earlier.

Why TAS This Game?
The continuation of TASing games from my all-time favorite magazine, Compute's Gazette. This makes my 45th TAS from this series.
Previous Compute's Gazette submissions include (In order of submission):
Game Difficulty and Ending
Difficulty is related to the limitation of time that a player can select. Since the selection is a one key operation, it doesn't really matter which one you pick...because the game will be the same length...due to my RNG manipulation. Yet, I pick the hardest difficulty anyway...4 (which allows 15 seconds to complete the round).
Effort In TASing
This can be related to "Sky Diver", where I affected the RNG seed by using the command "RND", before running the game. I did this a number of times, until I got a clear path to the square.
Couldn't fine one. This game was more unpopular than its counter-part of the first issue.
