Snake is the godfather of all mobile videogames and has spawned hundreds of imitations down the years. Turbo Worm is another retro-style offering that aims to breathe new life into the genre.
The first thing you'll notice when you start playing Turbo Worm is its retro graphics. They are as blocky and equally charming as what you'd find the pre-8-bit console days, when having more than two colors on a screen was considered to be cutting-edge.
The object of Turbo Worm is to guide your slithering creature around a maze, collecting all the mushrooms and dodging an obstacles that lie in your path. A 'food compass' arrow helps you detect which direction to go in to find the nearest room.
Speaking of directions, Turbo Worm will initially put you in a spin as you'll notice that the controls are in reverse. That's to say that pressing the Up key will move you down, the Left key will turn you right, etc. This makes navigating the courses even more difficult, so you're best advised to switch the more traditional control system in the main menu. This menu also lets you change the speed of the game and flick between different levels of zoom.
Another good thing about Turbo Worm is that it automatically remembers your last game, so even if you switch your phone off, you can automatically resume from the same place next time.
It may not be the most original idea ever, but Turbo Worm proves that moving a pixelated snake around a small screen is just as captivating as it always was.
