Fun and informative, the way learning should be!
Interesting way to teach kids about tapeworms!! I found the boss quite hard, but then realized that the hit box was larger than the actual boss shape. Oh yeah, why does the score reset between levels? I also wish there were some indication of how much time was left in each level, in case I died near the end of the level or something heh.
I was also wondering, at the very end if I remember correctly there is a picture of the kid in bed with perhaps a thermometer in his mouth. Is elevated body temperature a typical symptom of a tapeworm infection? Is it also typical for white blood cells (the immune system) to be able to attack and kill a tapeworm, in the stomach or elsewhere? Is contaminated water the most common way to get a tapeworm infection? Sorry if all this sounds anal, but even though you are aiming this for an audience of children (age?), it'll be good to see how much scientifically-accurate information you can cram into this game while still leaving it fun, informative, and accessible for your target audience. :) If you've already shown this to the kids, what info did they manage to take away from this game? Hopefully they did not think that spit can actually kill Tapy! ;-)
