One of the best Snakes/Nibbles clones ever made, Pizza Worm is a great freeware gem that has become a cult favorite since its release in 1995. If you haven’t been gaming long enough to have played Snakes, here’s the basic idea: guide a worm around the screen, eating pizzas (which appear one at a time at a random location) as you go. The more pizzas your worm eats, the bigger it gets. If the worm’s head hits any part of its body, it’s game over. The goal is simply to stay alive for as long as possible.

While the gameplay remains as simple as Snakes, what makes Pizza Worm much more fun than similar clones is the way your worm handles. You need only to steer it left or right to rotate, and the movement is very smooth. The game also features a fun two-player mode, although it’s hotseat only. Excellent VGA graphics round off this addictive underdog that you will spend hours with without realizing it ;) The only thing that could have made the game better is different levels or background graphics, but that is a very minor complaint. Without a doubt, Pizza Worm was the best Snakes clone ever made until Digital Eel’s Plasmaworm in 2001. Two thumbs up, way up!
