In Death Worm, you play the role of gigantic, man-eating mutant worm, hell-bent on creating as much destruction as possible. Your abilities include burrowing through the ground with frightening speed, jumping above the surface, Nitro bursts (essentially temporary turbo speed-ups), and shooting fireballs.
The game play is simple: ram your worm into anything you can catch. There are human soldiers running about as well as animals, tanks, helicopters, even UFOs. Some enemies are stronger than others, so they may require multiple hits before going down, and of course, you're under attack as well.
In Campaign Mode, you progress through levels and receive power-ups as you achieve your killing objectives. You can apply these power-ups to any of your worm's attributes, including Worm Size, Speed, Strength, Nitro Duration, and Fireball Level. The ultimate goal, of course, is to develop a fully upgraded beast. In the paid version, you also gain access to an endless Survival Mode and Mini Games.
Overall, we thought Death Worm was super entertaining--for a while. We loved munching on humans and hurtling through the air at attacking helicopters. Plus, the controls were surprisingly good. However, we can't see ourselves firing this one up very often, as the game play did get a bit repetitive. That said, we definitely recommend the free download, especially before even considering the Paid version.
