A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Navigating your worm is easy to do with the touch screen – and bonuses you pick up as you advance are controlled by one or two buttons.


As the titular character, you’ll devour everything in your path, from cars and cows to women pushing baby carriages. The game’s graphics are cartoony, pixilated characters (along the lines of the original Mario in Donkey Kong), so there’s nothing realistic.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Super Mega Worm is a cartoony arcade game that casts players as a giant man-eating worm. While the point of the game is to devour or destroy as many people, cars, cows, and more as possible, the violence is relatively tame. The graphics mimic the 8-bit style of the earliest home entertainment systems, so nothing looks remotely realistic. Characters flee for their lives, but do so spouting text one-liners like “No! I just got a new car!”

Is it any good?

Super Mega Worm doesn’t take itself the least bit seriously -- and that’s what makes it so fun. The deliberately archaic graphics and the ripped-from-a-cheesy-1950s-horror-film premise add to the kitsch factor. While technically violent -- in that you’re killing tiny people – it doesn't seem realistic. If you like the idea of being a super-ravenous, all powerful bad guy, this is the app for you.
