We all loved DEATH WORM. DEATH WORM! It’s one of the first indie games we ever posted about on RPS, and mentioning its hallowed name remains the only known way to make Jim Rossignol use an exclamation mark.
Free browser game Worm Food is not DEATH WORM 2.0, nor is it officially related to DEATH WORM, but it is a lot like it. Probably too much like it, to be honest. Still: death worms.
It’s more visually elaborate (i.e. da grafficks is betta) and by including a starvation system rather than simply a combo score, it’s perhaps a little more polished and focused – though in some ways that’s to its detriment. DEATH WORM’s simple purity was its all.
Still, you’re a giant worm. You eat stuff. This involves acceleration, tunnelling and trying not to starve to death. Vis a vis, DEATH WORM! (But not).
Oh, what the hell. Here’s a DEATH WORM video too.
Here are some other death worms. People on YouTube are weird.
