Super Mega Worm: Old-School iPhone Gore

Last week developer Deceased Pixel dropped Super Mega Worm: a gory, 8-bit throwback for the iPhone. This week, the game is featured as “App Of The Week” in the App Store.

And for good reason; it boasts beautiful graphics and simple controls that make it really accessible. The best part? You get to eat rednecks, shoot down helicopters and blow up military vehicles that lie in your wake.

Mechanics

In the game you control Wojira (aka the huge worm with blood dripping from its teeth) in a quest to rid Earth of the human parasite. But honestly, the story doesn’t matter. The real draw here is the sheer violence of the experience and the destruction that you get to cause. As you chase down your victims, you’ll gain points and unlock power-ups like fire breath and EMP disruptions.

But be warned: if your worm doesn’t quench its thirst for blood, your reign of terror will come to an abrupt end. Chasing down targets isn’t too hard though. The game employs a slider to control your worm, which is actually very intuitive. As for power-ups, you can activate those by pressing the buttons at the bottom right of the screen.

Where to get it

Right now you can pick up the game on sale for $0.99, but be quick; the price will jump back up to $2.99 soon. The fee might seem a little steep, but for one of the iPhone’s weirdest and most original games, it’s worth it.

    This post made me laugh. I can appreciate the lightheartedness of your topic. I am actually a video game girl (NOT a gamer) and I enjoy playing them. Although I do not have an iphone, this game does spark my interest to see if I could find it other places. very cool.

    This sounds pretty nerdy and a little gross….can I get it for my iPod Touch? 😀 Really interesting, I probably wouldn’t have heard of this otherwise.

    Joey, you’re always all over the technology beat. It’s pretty cool. I love simple games for my phone, a Droid, but I’m basically as opposed to paying for them as possible due to being terribly broke. I can appreciate this though. My favorite place to play these games: waiting rooms.

    I am creeped out and intrigued all at once. Probably never would have considered it otherwise, but now I might just have to check it out. But I’m not sure it can ever live up to Plants vs. Zombies…

  6. I was just thinking that I needed to download a new game for my man’s iPod touch. I quickly get bored with them and I like games that are easy to pick up and don’t require a lot of time. Thanks for the tip – I’ll definitely check this one out! Plus, I can get it for free if I go on his iTunes account 🙂
