Deep within the Elevere Forest is a place known as The Dump. An enterprising hedgehog-like race known as the Furze make their living here, picking up the things that the elves way up in Canopy City throw away.
These junk fields are home to many interesting creatures, including the Junkworms. These spirits, animated by the will of the forest, want nothing more than to devour as much rubbish as possible to become strong and healthy.
In The Very Hungry Junkworm you must use the arrow keys to control a Junkworm - pick up the pieces of rubbish to grow, but be careful not to run into your tail, or hit the wall. Gems will give you extra points but watch out - they won't last long before somebody else finds them.
