An example of a Snake-type game that shows how you can create the illusion of a snake-like movement by simply moving the head and tail segments, rather than all segments of the snake (or worm in this case).

Added some more example ideas
Boxed in -- avoid touching the boundaries
The Librarians -- avoid the Librarians
Tap-it -- tap the screen to change direction of the bookworm

Love the game!

Awesome game! But the controls get confusing.. (I mean the arrows) Could there be like a pad? (not a joystick) like arrows that go up, right, left, and down...

July 09, 2017

Started with up, down, left, right arrows, but there was the issue with turning back on yourself and dying; for example, if you are moving to the left and then hit the right arrow. In the current version you can only turn left or right from the perspective of the worm's direction of travel, it does make it a bit more challenging, but that's a good thing. Also, the project is branchable, so if you want to have a go at a different set of controls that would be great.

Okay, I see. :)

Arrows now better but still not so good,tilt seems easier to play but there is a sensitivity problem about it,sometimes when I tilt down it goes up,if you can make tilt behaviour work better I would rather play tilt,but the problem might also be related to hyperpad as regular or top down is confusing.

I like the game but I didnt like the controls.I would place 2 arrows left and 2 right

Ok, split out the arrow keys in the latest revision.

You should make the controls just turn left or right, it doesn't make sense to turn directly into yourself and die. (Like the controls in hypertron light cycles). I found these controls annoying to use.

Good idea. New update has this.

It's cool but a book appeared on the body of the worm and then no more books appeared.

I think I have fixed this in the latest version. Let me know if it still happens.
