The game I am looking for was written in BASIC and it's a snake or worm that gets bigger when it eats good food and dies when it eats poison, similar to Vicious Viper.

No, not that one. The one I am talking about was different and it was written in BASIC.

Could it be the Dutch game by Martin van der Graaff called "Viper", published in MSX Computer Magazine?

It could be, I don't know. Is there a screenshot out there that I can look at? I tried Generation MSX, but it wasn't there (well, the ones that had screenshots at least).

It's not there indeed, it doesn't have all those basic listings from magazines. I can make a screenshot, but I have no place to post it.

EDIT: Oh, I just made a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPPwEkHiA4c

I remember a magazine game Eat-It. If I remember correctly that also was a Viper / nibbles clone, but I am not really sure.

You're sure it's a BASIC game and not Snake-It or so?

I'll check on that basic version of Eat It... I think it was published in MSX Gids or so.

No, it wasn't Eat It. I remember clearly that it was a BASIC game but I don't remember at all where I got it from.
