Screen Shots

Without a doubt, Worm Whomper was a game whose title instilled trepidation in me when I first heard it. In fact, it took me 18 years to get the game! When I first played it on the IntelliCart, I immediately realized that I'd overlooked a gem of a game for all that time. This game is fun! It's got a rarity as far as Activision games go in that there's a "soundtrack" - albeit a basic one. The action is fast and frantic, and the sound effects are good. Also, this game sports the most moving objects I've ever seen in an Intellivision game. The screen literally crawls with critters - must a bit of good trickery going on there! In fact, it looks like perhaps the same stunt Masters of the Universe pulled, but just not as colorful. You'll get very sore trigger fingers playing this game - the only knock I have is that there's no autofire feature. Best Score: 125303 (Wave 23) [Think if I took a picture & sent it in, Activision would send me a patch?]
