Above ground: elephants, giraffes, people. Below ground: a hungry, giant Death Worm.
Remember that movie Dune, where Paul has to take control of the giant sand worm? If you don't remember, what about that movie Tremors where the giant sand worms are killing people? Or even that scene in Beetlejuice where he walks off his front porch into the desert inhabited by a giant sand worm.
Not to put too fine a point on it, giant sand worms don't get enough respect. They're long, tough, and usually pretty angry. Well, wouldn't you, if you had people walking on your roof all day?
Death Worm puts you in control of one of those beasts and your goal is to... eat things. Well, its self defence! They're walking on the worm's roof... and that's not cool.
Either way, you take control of this poor, misunderstood beast and destroy the heck out of anything above land. Eat the elephants. Eat the giraffes. Eat people riding horses. Be warned - like the beast from Crush, the townsfolk won't let you trample on what they see as their property. Beginning with land mines and electro-shocks, their attacks are small and controlled. Soon enough, tanks are called in. Bombers circle overhead, intermittently dropping machine gun wielding Worm trappers.
Simply put: It's fun. Complete, total, lock me up insanity fun. You can't refuse to love this game. Its got a giant sand worm in it!
This game is clever, smooth, and amazingly mind blowing. There is also a 2 player mod available.
Greatest game in the world!
This is the best game ever.
