Fazit: Ein lustiger Spaß, um je nach Punktzahl zu Fischfutter, Erd-, Seiden-, Buch-oder Bandwurm zu werden. Entscheidendes Hindernis für eine noch bessere Gesamtbewertung: Ab dem sechsten Bildschirm-Beet beginnt alles ohne erneute Schwierigkeits-Steigerung exakt wieder von vorn. Schade!
The Video Game Critic
The game requires some good reflexes, and you'll need a responsive joystick. The control is tricky because you move much faster vertically than horizontally. Tape Worm's control and graphics could be better, but its interesting gameplay makes it worth a try.
Atari HQ
Taken as a whole, Tapeworm isn't too bad. It borrows elements from Atari's Surround and Rock-Ola's obscure Nibbler. But what where Tapeworm fails is in its presentation (i.e. - crap graphics) and unresponsive controls.
