Great little game. I love things like this. The arcade vibe is real and in the best way possible.

I did have some thoughts about the control scheme--I'm not sure I care for the rotation mechanic. It felt very hard to control and that detracted from the experience for me, which is a shame since everything else made me want to stick around longer. I would have preferred true direction arrow keys that suggested the direction the worm should turn. Something a joystick could control, to keep the arcade feel perhaps.

That aside everything is top notch. I would throw so many quarters in a machine that had this on it.

why do the borders hurt the worm? the worm should just come out of the other side of the screen.

Lovely game!

When entering initials for the highscore X doesn't work only Z. I'm using QWERTZ keyboard, so it's a bit annoying. But I guess you have to press Z afterwards anyway.

Is it deliberate that the worm starts facing south, so that the left and right buttons are reversed?

No, it just looks nicer when you can see his face. Do you think it's too disorienting? Did you figure out the control system in a reasonable time?

Hi. Control system figured out at second or third play. Perhaps little flickering arrows near the head of the worm at the start could help (or just add arrow control help in the intro scroller). Very nice game by the way!
