The "nsnake" command is a popular terminal-based game that resembles the classic Snake game. When executed, it initiates the nsnake game within the terminal window.

The objective of nsnake is to control a snake represented by a series of characters (usually asterisks or a specific symbol) and guide it to eat food represented by a different character (generally a dollar sign). Each time the snake eats the food, it grows longer. However, if the snake collides with its own body or the boundaries of the game window, the game ends.

By using keyboard arrow keys, the player can change the direction of the snake's movement. The game speed typically increases as the snake grows longer, making it more challenging as time progresses.

Overall, "nsnake" is a command that launches the nsnake game in a terminal, providing a simple yet addictive gaming experience.
