Summary

Best snake game around.

The Good

The freedom of movement is astounding. No longer are you restricted to a two axis moving field. You're free to smoothly turn your worm in beautiful circles this time around. You collect pizzas, and the bigger the pizza the bigger the score you gain. Probably the most fun thing about this game is the two-player mania, where two players worm it out in the quest for more pizzas, and the longer they get the more danger of running into each other. The sound effects of the worms eating those delicious pizzas are also noteworthy. It's also freeware, meaning you don't have to pay a dime to play this gem.

The Bad

The fact that it's pretty hard, even impossible, to run this game on newer machines is a big contractor the quality of this title. But hey, the source code's been released, maybe some good fellow will port it to native Windows.

The Bottom Line

Play it. Love it. You'll laugh. You'll cry. It's Pizza Worm, and it's one of the best, if not the best Snake/Nibbler clone out there.
