New App A Day: Super Mega Worm

Today’s featured app is Super Mega Worm, a high-score game with a monstrous sense of humor. You play as a giant worm that needs to keep a full stomach to stay alive. Anything with a pulse is fair game, including cows, birds, rednecks, cops, and mothers pushing strollers. As you swallow more people, you level up and unlock new abilities, like projectiles that shoot from your mouth.

To control your worm beast, you can use tilt or a slider. We found the slider to work best, but it takes some getting used to. Luckily, the gameplay is satisfying enough to keep you entertained until you master the controls. The awesome retro graphics and audio add to the game’s appeal.

Unfortunately, there aren’t any leaderboards, so you can’t post your high scores for the world to see. Without that, it might be hard to recommend such a simple high-score game at the current price of $2.99. But we had so much fun with it we’re going to suggest you pick it up anyway.
