Strange, I thought this had been finished a long time ago... eh, anyway, awesome game. I loved the old version (I've had it on my computer for months), and this one's even better! :GM006: 10/10

I was just wondering if you could maybe make me an example of how to do those types of physics, I have a small idea of how it maybe be done, but just to be sure, could you please make me one, well actually everyone? Thanks.

And nice game, I played it before. :GM006:

Robo Thanks!
evilpacman The pic? Yes it is.
Dinsdale Thanks. I haven't played that Zelda yet.
Black-Hawk Thanks for downloading. I checked imageshack, but it was too crowded to work.
TechnoSuperguy I made a few little tweaks. It was previously in "Work in progress."
MF3dragon You mean the worm's body...? Here's my example on that:

I like this game :)
Are you still adding stuff to it? It says v1.00, so I wasn't sure.
Anyzwayzy, This game is awesome! And adding more stuff would make it even Awesomer! Like, multiplayer would be cool :)
Rock Rock on!

Um. Wow. This freaking rocks man. I never knew I had such a strong desire to
burrow 'neath the sand, bursting out only to chomp on the afrikana animals,
peoples, and military.

Loved it. Very impressed. :)

Indeed, Great game. The idea of being an all devouring earth worm rocks ;D

Mabey you should implement somekind of growth mechanism?

Like snakes xD

That was a blast! A growth system may not be a bad idea, though...

Isn't there already a growth system?
I didn't notice it at first because it's so gradual, but once I died after playing for a while and started again, I was kinda surprised at how small the worm starts out :)

still 10/10

Thanks for the compliments, everyone! :)
the_real_gumby This is the first official version. That's why it's "v1.00." I might still do some adjustments.
Lucky7 There was. In the "Work in Progress" section.

Ha. Very nice, I like the physics (though they're a little tough to get used to) and the graphics. The creatures aren't really very detailed, but they're pretty funny to watch, and I like the explosions. The menu seems very incongruous with the rest of the game, though, and the lens flare is annoying.

Also, this game has got some great variety. Very impressive. The concept, too, is pretty original, and pretty well-executed. Nice job.

9/10. I loved it but it would of been more retro if you made the graphics less detailed.

I agree. However, my next game is really, really retro-styled. "Robot Attack 4000."


Jabberwock:
Thanks for the feedback. There will be an option to turn off the lens flare in the next update.

My score is 1900.
Great game!
The only thing I don't like are the pillow shaded sprites.
They would look better if you didn't try to shade them at all.
I could help you with the sprites if you want me to.

You can abuse those little worms pretty well by just letting them multiply for a while and then eat them.
I don't find that bad but it starts lagging if there are a many little worms though, maybe that is because of the 'digging trace' they leave behind them.
A population limit for underground creatures could help there.

Tremors was one of my favorite movies growing up. Because of this I really enjoy games with monster worms. (And games that rip off the movie case. ;) ) The graphics are pretty good and the sounds are fine, but the game play and feel stands out the most to me. I really enjoy the speed of your worm and the crunching noise and a bite into the next camel. Keep up the good work. :)

New version uploaded. (1.01)

9_6 You were right about the sprites. They look much better without the borders/shading. Thanks. I also limited the diggers.
Andy Thank you. I'm glad you liked it.

I also fixed some other things, so you might want to replace the older version with this.
