VERDICT

Super Mega Worm is a mindless action title that places you in the place of the 'big bad mutant' out to devour humanity, one baby-pram at a time.

My initial impressions while playing Super Mega Worm from Deceased Pixel consisted of saying to myself, 'Oh wow, they totally made Tremors in to a video game!'. For those of you familiar with the classic horror-esque film, this will make a lot of sense, but for those not initiated just be prepared to make a big mess while eating your way through the entirety of humanity.

What do I mean by this? Well you get to control a giant worm that is destined to cleanse the world of the human plague, but before you do so you'll need to hatch from an egg and slowly grow and evolve. A slide bar allows you to turn your worm around and as you progress you'll gain new abilities assigned to two buttons to use against the humans. One really fun aspect of the game is the ability to rocket up in to the sky, bouncing off planes in a Doodle Jump inspired climb to the stars while causing chaos and destruction.

The other reason I had Tremors rolling around the back of my head was due to the game's pixel-art style that's easy to follow and clever touches like watching people fly out of vehicles as you ram them from below adds to the fun. Strangely there are no achievements despite screaming for random awards for performing insane stunts.

Super Mega Worm is basic mindless fun and an easy game to jump in to, so casual and hardcore action fans will both get a kick out of this title. It's not endlessly replayable, but still a joy thanks to its casual mayhem.
