Two person tail chase game

Post by Redspine »

Greetings, first post, thanks for looking. I am not a gamer but I'm looking to quench this forgotten game in my head. I think it was an Intellivision game. The screen was similar to SNAFU. It had similar graphics. It was a bottom down view of a blank field with no obstacles other than you and your opponent. It was a 2 person game. Your avatar was a defined length snake and I think it actually had a rattle on the last segment like a rattlesnake. Your objective was to hit your opponents tail with your head, thus knocking off the last segment until all segments were knocked off. This would have been early 80s. It had repetitive music, and that's actually what I'm looking for. I got nowhere with moby, google, or youtube. Thanks for any help.

Looking at the wiki pages for all Intellivision games, I only see one 'snake' game, and it is Snafu.

Snafu has two play modes, one of which is a two-player 'bite' mode where you has to cut off the tail end of your opponent, represented by a 'rattle', which is seen in the screenshot below.
