An angle-free worm game... Nice

The Good

Pizza Worm is one of those small games that you install and play occasionally. The facts that it's installation takes very little space and it's free just make this point more clear. Indeed, Pizza Worm is one of the best rattler-race-type worm games around.

In Pizza Worm, as you can see from the name, you try to eat pizzas instead of apples or blobs that don't say anything to you. Sure, the graphics are definately from a place where sun don't shine, and the sounds basically make you laugh, but what you can't deny is the playability of the game. The biggest surprise at least for me was the fact that you can turn as much/little as you want, and you don't have to make the 90 degree turns as in most worm games. This raises the freedom and the challence of the game.

Then there's the fact that, unlike most old-age DOS games, this thing actually works under Windows 95 and 98. I don't know if it works under XP or 2000, though.

The Bad

Well, I'll be honest with you. The game looks like s... um... crap.The graphics were outdated when the game was published and in the world of 3D effects etc. the game looks like it's from year one or two after Adam.

The sounds aren't that old/lame/useless, but still, the effects are not by all means great. They just do their job.

The Bottom Line

This is one of those games for which you really must forget all the graphical nonsense and concentrate on the diamond-hard playability. That's what's important and that's what this game has. And it's bundled up with challenging and generally fun-to-play game.
