Nice break from my studies
I agree with previous reviews: the game is charming and calming. The graphics are well done and gives a warm and fuzzy ambience :) The music is pleasant and the fact that it's repeating doesn't bother me at all. It gets the job done ;) I also like the smooth movement and control of the caterpillar and it's great that there is a margin on the edges of the map so it's not game over as soon as the caterpillar touches an edge.
I too was disappointed when I saw the shovel the second time, perhaps it would have been better to just make fewer levels because it had a big negative impact. It's not fair, I know, but it's the little things you know. Also, I would have liked to see a twist of some sort. Something to surprise me and make it stand out from the rest of the "worm" games. Perhaps different types of food with different probabilities of appearing and rewarding different amounts of points?
Great game though, well programmed and designed. :)
