From MobyGames:

   Vlak (translated as Train from Czech) is a freeware 90's clone of Snake. You control a train to collect items scattered around an area while avoiding to crash into something. Every time you obtain a new item, your train will have a new wagon attached to it. The wagons differ in looks based on what kind of item you pick up. The pickups include animals, crowns, diamonds, plants and apples. When you collect all the items, you can exit through a yellow door to advance to a new and even more complicated room. There is an unlimited amount of continues and no highscore, but there are 50 levels while the program weighs only 13 KB.

Game controls:

All DOS games were controlled directly from the PC keyboard. Some newer DOS games also used a mouse or other more advanced game peripherals for control. However, each game was controlled by different keys. You can find a detailed description of how to control this version of Vlak in the attached game manual. An overview of basic keyboard commands and keyboard shortcuts to control this game is summarized in the following table:

Platform:

This ver­sion of Vlak was de­sig­ned for per­so­nal com­pu­ters with o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem MS-DOS (Mi­cro­soft Disk O­pe­ra­ting Sys­tem), which was o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem de­ve­lo­ped by Mi­cro­soft in 1981. It was the most wi­de­ly-used o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was sup­plied with most of the IBM com­pu­ters that pur­cha­sed a li­cen­se from Mi­cro­soft. Af­ter 1995, it was pu­s­hed out by a gra­phi­cal­ly mo­re ad­van­ced sys­tem - Win­dows and its de­ve­lop­ment was ce­a­sed in 2000. At the ti­me of its grea­test fa­me, se­ve­ral thou­sand ga­mes de­sig­ned spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for com­pu­ters with this sys­tem we­re cre­a­ted. To­day, its de­ve­lop­ment is no lon­ger con­ti­nue and for e­mu­la­tion the free DOSBox e­mu­la­tor is most of­ten used. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about MS-DOS operating system can be found here.
