What parents need to know

Ease of play

The game is very easy to control, using a virtual control stick on the left side of the screen to move your worm around. It doesn't take long to master the game's controls. You can also move the control stick to the right side of the screen, if you choose.

Violence

This action game lets you play as a giant worm that attacks humans, animals, and vehicles. The people run away from you, often screaming, and also cry out in pain when eaten. Blood splatters from fallen victims. You can also cause cars and planes to explode.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Death Worm is a violent and gory game that glorifies the killing of humans and others. While cartoonish in nature, the app has plenty of blood and screaming in the game, as your ravenous worm eats humans and animals (elephants, birds, camels, etc.) and destroys vehicles (cars, helicopters, planes, and UFOs). You are the "bad guy" in this game, and your carnage also includes destroying police cars and army helicopters.

QUALITY

In DEATH WORM, you're in control of an underground monster resembling a giant centipede, and you must cause as much carnage as you can above and below the surface. Using your fingertip, you'll emerge out of the soil to eat people and animals, cause tanks and cars to explode, and if you can gain enough height, take down airplanes, helicopters, and UFOs. The campaign mode starts in the desert, but to advance to the next level -- and eventually unlock new areas, including a city and jungle -- you'll need to accomplish a number of goals, such as kill 80 people in two minutes or devour five underground creatures. Players can earn upgrades (such as thicker skin, longer length, or faster speed); pick up power-ups that let you shoot fireballs or enjoy temporary bursts in speed; or use the environment to their advantage, such as knocking rocks into the sky to take down flying objects. The app also includes mini-games. Because of its thrilling gameplay, multiple modes and missions, and high production values, Death Worm is a blast for older teens and adults who love action on their iDevices.

This game has it all, and is extremely fun and well made. It isn't as gory as Super Mega Worm (But an option to turn off gore in that game is said to be released). I didn't see much blood in this game and I found it fine.
