They're ugly, they're slimy, they're multi-colored, but the worms in Wriggle by Conlan Rios need to be set free! Wriggle is a slick puzzle game that will challenge your ability to think around corners (literally) while remaining friendly enough for new-comers to stumble their way through.
The worms of Wriggle are moved by dragging their heads or tails through the available spaces, hopefully dragging the correct worm to the exit. This is easier said than done as each level is a maze of pathways often blocked by other worms. There's no time-limit to each puzzle, so you can take your time in trial-and-error, but there are achievements to earn for getting to the exit as efficiently as possible.
Often a "clean and cartoony" look can equate to a lack of effort on the part of the developer to design a more interesting interface, but Wriggle manages to be bright and colorful without being cutesy. Results of your progress can be Tweeted, but in an interesting twist the option to do so can be disabled via a menu option. There's a great tutorial to ease new players in to the game, so everyone can climb the difficulty curve a little more easily.
Wriggle is a fun and interesting puzzle game that fits the "just one more try/puzzle/attempt" or "I think I can get the gold star here" sort of categories that can plague the genre. With 80 puzzles to try you'll be kept busy for ages and will find a difficulty level to suit you; a highly recommended app!
