It was a normal day for our hero the worm, when suddenly! An ugly-looking kid abducted him to use as bait! Luckily for him, the kid trips and the worm escapes from his clutches. But he has to make his way back home through a field... That can't be too hard. Can it?
Bait is a puzzle game in the vein of Soko-Ban. You, as the worm, have to go through 30 different levels split between three difficulties and push barrels out of your way in order to make it to the door to the next level. These barrels can be used to get across holes on the ground. You can also pick up Apples for bonus points, Clocks for extra time, or use Trampolines to jump between portions of each level. If you don't complete a level in time, then a bird will fly by and eat you!
