Play as a worm, protect your egg.

Enemies that collide with your tail will be stunned, eat them to increase your length.

New segments for your tail can be dropped with Z, these will block enemies too!

The longer the tail, the slower you move.

Eat lots of enemies in a row to rack up a combo and get more points!

Worm egg priority


Is every other worm suicidal? If they destroy the egg everybody dies.

Solid arcade action! I like how colorful and explosive everything is: it makes the entire game a delight as even a game over is a cool and fun event where stuff explodes! I was initially confused by a few elements, especially since the instruction screen went by so fast without waiting for my input to confirm. Dropping segments of yourself is actually pretty cool, like laying mines, but initially I did not get how to do it effectively and was scared since I thought it was hurting myself. I didn't know I could finish off spinning/stunned enemies by bumping into them again either: I just figured I could only stun them and that was it and I'd need to keep stunning them to keep them away. If these elements and more were explained a bit more clearly or something with a better tutorial or demo, I think more and more people could appreciate how fun this can be once you get the hang of it!

If you don't move at all at the start you are invincible, just wait for the bugs to get in your mouth

Thanks for letting me know, that bug has been fixed!
