Super Mega Worm [rating: 3.5/5]
Super Mega Worm is a human eating, arcade game brought to you by Deceased Pixel. If gobbling down humans who are running scared, with blood splattering everywhere are your thing, then Super Mega Worm is what you need to play.
Control Wojira the giant death worm who is on a mission to destroy all humans and will eat any that step in its way. You need to travel through the soil underground waiting until they appear. When they do, you need to enrupt out of the soil and slaughter them.
Sounds pretty gruesome right? Well indeed it is. Wojira will eat anything it comes across, the men screaming as they run, birds, cows and he also knocks about a few police cars. Even the poor unsuspecting mothers pushing their beloved babies in prams get eaten. If that is not enough for you, there are splatters of blood to be seen after every mouthful.
You start by breaking your ugly, human eating worm out of its egg then you just have to control it under and out of the soil. Every time you see a human you need to burst up and eat it. Your worm will then fall back down to go underground. Use the sliding controls to steer him back up and keep him close to the surface.
Wojira only stays alive by the people it eats. At the top of the screen is an energy bar, if this empties it will die. Sounds great to the poor humans running but in this game I am afraid it is the big bad worm you have to help. Eating the humans will keep his energy bar up so you basically just have to see how long you can keep it up for.
You start off quite small but as you progress through the levels you become bigger and harder to control. Use the power ups to help you along the way. There are 24 levels to work your way through, it is one hungry worm!
The graphics are very retro arcade style and the controls are on that scale as well. It took some getting used to controlling the worm in the beginning but it does become easier once you get the hang of it. At first though it is a bit of a challenge. The music and sound effects are arcade style and are very apt for the game.
Super Mega Worm is now enabled to be used with Apple’s new Game Center. A great idea and incentive to keep you coming back to play and try beat your friends high scores.
It is quite easy to keep alive the first three or four levels and in the beginning it did get a bit tiresome. When the worm gets bigger though you will find it does become more of a challenge and quite addictive. It is suitable for any casual or hardcore gamer.
