Crash! (Apr, 1985)
Wriggler is a maze game, or it could be an arcade game - well it might even qualify as an adventure of sorts. The simple truth is that Wriggler is all of these, and in some respects resembles Antics, the insectoidal game by Bug-Byte. The opening screen shows four maggots at the start of a race, and you are one of them - you know it's a race because of the ant with the starting pistol, but you are not racing against the other maggots as they disappear soon after the race starts to become your extra lives.

Crawling out from the dunghill of worthy utilities comes the Romantic Robot maggot. Romantic Robot has hitherto confined its activities to producing utilities and music programs, but its first arcade game demonstrates an appreciation of entertainment as well as a sound knowledge of byte lore.

What made Wriggler stand out was the quality of the graphics. The titular worm was wonderfully animated, as were all his insect adversaries. Also the detail of the garden itself had a touch of graphical class about it. Filled with strange plants, vegetables and even scarecrows, there was always something to keep you interested.
