FEATURED ON APPLE'S NEW AND NOTEWORTHY SECTION!

"For just a dollar, Worm Run almost sells itself. Its lightning-on-ice movement speed and motivation to keep on trucking in the form of a gigantic carnivorous beast make for a nice alternative to the droves of autopilot runners available on the App Store." - Touch Arcade

"A brilliant variation on the endless-runner genre, Worm Run is breathless, addictive fun of the highest calibre" - Pocket Gamer

"If you're a fan of endless runners, platformers, or giant fuzzy worms, keep an eye on this one..." - Gamezebo

"The game features a dynamically generated environment, retro graphics and sounds, a uniquely challenging swipe control system..." -Appadvice

"[A] nice twist on the rather stagnant endless runner genre..." - Inside Social Apps

Finally its available here in the EU.. And its very good... Ill go to the core that worries most of you: swipe controls. And they work... Just swipe to the direction you want to move, the character has a jetpack and goes there, and its best to frantically swipe :P

As for the rest of the game, is crazy fun. Feel a bit like Super Mole Escape sometimes, not bad at all and Worm Run has some neat and unique ideas on its own. Very entertaining

If I had to pick something bad, aside from the lack of missions, its the chiptune, but I play with low sound, so no biggie

Also, could someone explain what in the shop is consumable and whats not? Items are expensive and dont want to mess around
