  • To install nSnake in all currently supported versions of Ubuntu open the terminal and type:

    sudo add-apt-repository universe # If you already have a root prompt (#) you don't need to preface any commands with sudo.
    sudo apt update  
    sudo apt install nsnake

    To start nSnake run nsnake from the terminal, and it will open in the terminal because it's a terminal game.
