Fruit Worm - harmless

      Some old classic games can really use a little retouching. One developer takes an aim at such a thing. A more free roaming version of the classic snake game, Fruit Worm lets you move in more than just an up, down, left, right direction. Although you can only turn left or right, it's in varying degrees and from your current direction of movement. The smartphone app retains a few of the same characteristics of the classic game. These include a game over if you run into yourself or hit an obstacle or wall.

     The sound effects sound like old Final Fantasy menu sounds. The music and graphics look to be from a similar era. Although well designed, the colors are a bit outdated and not vibrant enough. They remind me of old Sega Genesis games although they don't quite match up to Sonic the Hedgehog. Of course not all games need need high bitrates to be enjoyable(the obviously rare example is Minecraft). The rotating green star that pops up after a selection takes a while to finish it's animation. If the application isn't using this animation time to load then I feel/believe that the animation slows down the pace of the game a bit. A small suggestion would be maybe the worm's head could be more distinct. It's not important and I should already be aware of where it's head is but I'm just saying.

   Fruit worm is brought to you by Bitoxic. It has between 10,000 and 50,000 downloads on Google Play and an average rating of 4.0. That's pretty good. You can download it for FREE HERE. Loading times are extremely short and don't worry, this worm is a lot safer than the one found in snow whites poisonous apple. 

Now get to collecting those fruits.
