Well, not toxic, exactly... maybe just a little bit rank. But in a nice way. With a garnish.

Sunday Game

I love this game.

I've played many versions of Snake/Nibbles in the past but for some reason A Worm's Life has grabbed me by the neck, put me into a head-lock and just won't let go.

Well, that's what I tell Imp, anyway.

The twist is that there are tempting little power-ups to make life both easier and harder.
A blue shield protects you from bombs and allows you to clear light coloured bricks. A jug of yellow liquid slows you down, red speeds you up, green makes you bigger.
Bombs? You can work that one out for yourself.

The best thing is that you only need one hand to operate, thus leaving the other free for coffee, doughnuts, a beautiful woman or a shot of whisky.

Plinky plonky music (switch off-able, thankfully) completes the retro feel.

    No, I've made it to 46,502.

    The levels keep getting harder as you go.
