[prMac.com] Brisbane, Australia - Turnsy Games today is pleased to introduce Worm Town 1.03 free for iOS, their new side-scroller Game where players control a friendly slippery worm as he worms his way through one of two endless courses, snow or fire. Featuring simple, one-touch control, the game is far more challenging than it appears. Touching the screen causes the worm to wriggle forward and upwards, and releasing it, he moves forward and downwards. Players must be careful not to let any trailing part of the worm touch a wall or barrier, or the worm comes apart, breaking up into six disconnected parts, ending the round.
Similar in some ways to side-scrollers where players use a single control to continuously alter the buoyancy of fish swimming from left to right, Worm Town is a bit more difficult. Starting from its head, each body part is slightly smaller, and as the worm moves upward, his body follows in a serpentine motion. So rather than a solid body fish that ascends or descends, the worm is a constantly rippling, dynamic creature being pulled forward from his head.
Players are controlling the upward and downward movement of an animal that behaves like a string of beads, and breaking one bead off by touching a top wall, bottom wall, or barrier, ends the round. While the worm moves forward somewhat slowly, he ascends and descends more quickly, which makes navigating extremely challenging. Comparing distances achieved via Game Center may initially reveal many low scores, though the endless courses with barriers and enemy worms can be played indefinitely.
