DescriptionSquirmer The Game
is a remake of the classic Centipede
You are flying a mini-spaceship inside a garden, filled with mushrooms, friendly creatures, foes, and, of course, your arch-enemy, the Squirmer (a centipede).
Your job is to completely kill the Squirmer, before he catches you. If you kill the beginning or the end of the Squirmer, you will shorten him. But if you kill a part from the mid, you will divide him into two Squirmers, and so on.
The Squirmer moves from top left to top right, then moving a row down, then moving back to left. If a mushroom is in the way, he will change the row until he can move normally. You, however, can move your ship to any place inside the bottom halve of the playfield.
The foes in the game (flea, spider, and scorpion) will hunt you, if they catch you, you have lost a life. This is also the case when the Squirmer got you.
But the game also offers two friends. A butterfly, which will leave a cocoon some times. If you fire at this cocoon, it it explode and kill anything in range. The other friend is the snail, which sometimes is above a mushroom, shoot at this mushroom and he will give you some of his powers (Spread Gun, Laser, or Invincibility).
