Worm.is: The Game lets you take control of your very own worm in the addicting and hectic multiplayer experience. With several different modes and a healthy player pool you’re guaranteed a decent amount of variety and challenge.

The staple of Worm.is: The Game is the free for all mode where you’ll swim around in an enclosed area with other players. Your objective is to reach the top of the leader board by collecting food to grow bigger. Players will have to restart if they hit a wall or another snake.

Unlike other io games players do have some options other than swimming around aimlessly with the ability to spend some of your gathered resources to speed away or shoot some of your length at an enemy snake, potentially killing them and claiming their size for yourself.

This is really just the surface of customisation and options though which is where Worm.is: The Game really shines. Said customisation comes from equipment which provides boosts to agility, speed, initial size and eat distance. Players can also select one special power which changes your play style with items that can increase your vision for a short time, slow enemies, stun enemies, provide temporary immunity and more.

All of this is facilitated by a level and coins system with everything having a cost in coins and level requirement. While coins can be purchased you’ll be able to earn a healthy dose through achievements, daily quests and randomly in games.

These load outs and experience carry over between game modes (although some have restrictions) allowing you to make consistent progress whether you play free for all, team, catch the egg, scourges, crazy mode, tournaments, competitive play, guilds and reward matches.

Worm.is: The Game is an impressive grow bigger game and includes all the features needed to keep you coming back again and again for casual gameplay. Servers are also generally quite full (and if you are struggling to find players you can manually change the server) without too much impact on game performance.

Summary:

  • Grow bigger and dominate the server.
  • Gain experience and coins to unlock new items and powers.
  • Large range of game modes.
  • Play on all your devices.
  • Includes achievements, rankings and friend systems.
