Super Mega Worm Review
Does anyone remember the movie Tremors (1990) starring Kevin Bacon, and Fred Ward. Well if there is a game that is inspired from that movie, Super Mega Worm would be the closest thing there is.
Now mind you this game is not new at all, it has been made available on the iOS almost 3 years ago. And like me you are probably asking the same question, “Why it took so long to get on the Android?” Well your guess is as good as mine. Whatever the issue, after a 3 year wait, Super Mega Worm has finally made its way to the Android.
Before you play the game you are introduced to a short cut-scene, then there is a quote from “The Book of Wyrm”, then the screen takes you to two hillbillies doing some target practise, then the screen leads you underground to an egg. You tap on the egg to crack it open to release the mega worm, and all hell breaks loose on earth. Now as the worm you move underground, and make the worm blast out of the surface. You will land on humans, and animals. You’ll also bounce off cars, and tanks to make your worm get higher into the air. In case you haven’t figured it out you have to eat everything and anything that gets in your path, to get a high score.
There are two types of modes in the game. Adventure mode, where you have to eat a certain amount of humans to advance to the next level, and throughout the game you will have the ability to use power up when you do obtain them, like shooting projectiles from the worm’s mouth. Going deeper underground you have the chance to eat purple gems, bonus items to add to your score. Everything you do will add to your score so go ahead and take your time eating humans and destroying you have all the time in the world.
The next mode is Time attack. You do not have to kill a certain amount of humans to advance; you just have to get the best score you can get within the time limit. But I find that both modes are fun to play.
The controls are very simple you have a 4-way control in which you have D-pad icon at the lower left of the screen that acts pretty much like a D-pad, and then you have a two-way control where you slide the icon left and right. I‘ve tried both controls, but I find that I have better control with the 4-way.
Looking at and listening to the graphics and sounds makes me want to play my Nintendo again. It has the classic 8-bit graphics, and a very catchy tune like Super Mario Bros. or like the first level in Contra. And the effects like human yelling as they get eaten to cow mooing sound great too.
For those who haven’t played Super Mega Worm should give this game a try. It’s a game that has classic looks and sound. And it is very easy to get into, and really fun to play. If you are looking for a great time passer, add this one to your Android device. Its $1.03 at the google play store.
