Basic rules:
Knight/snake rules:
Example of the knight cell constraints:
To illustrate the knight's cell/given snakes cell's counting logic, all given digits in the example would be acceptable knight (blue)/given snake (pink) cells, assuming snake cells are red.
Lösungscode: row 7 + row 8 (ex: 123456789456789123)

Awesome! Thanks for the updated grid, it was VERY helpful. Perfect, in fact.
Loved the solve. The snake was fairly easy to find, but the ending sudoku was a bit more tricky. It was nice that the puzzle didn't just give up as soon as the snake logic was finished. Great fun!

I'm colorblind, as such I can't really understand the example. I also see that coloring in the f-puzzles link is slightly different from the image here. I'm guessing f-puzzles is blue and pink? Only the pink is VERY difficult for me to tell apart from the blue (nearly impossible without surrounding the cell with the opposite color). I'd just re-color it myself, but I'm not sure I am SEEING the colors on the image (I see three: yellowish, blue, and a pinkish red).
I appreciate any help in this regard! The puzzle looks interesting, so I am looking forward to solving it, if I can. :)
[SirSchmoopy] Edit - sorry for not making something more colorblind friendly!
Here's a hopefully better version.
actual grid :
https://f-puzzles.com/?id=yj57azna
The head and tail snake cells have circles. The given snake cells with (with valid counts) have squares, the knight cells have diamonds.
Here's a link to an example. snake cells have diamonds and all given digits would be valid counts (either for a snake cell/knight cell)

I'm not sure if this is any better, but hopefully it's at least unambiguous enough. If not here's all of the shaded cells from the starting grid:
snake head/tail: R1C3,R7C9
knight cells:R2C5,R2C8,R3C1,R3C7,R6C3,R6C4,R6C7,R7C7
given snake cells that are valid knight counts:R2C9,R4C3,R8C4
Edit: That's perfect! Thank you!
