A puzzle where you need to guide a worm through a series of puzzle rooms, by changing the environment around it.

There are 17 levels in total.


  • Alt+Enter — Toggle fullscreen
  • F1 — Show FPS

Everything else can be controlled with the mouse, but you can use hotkeys for most actions. They can be viewed in game by holding the mouse over buttons.

  • Space — Play/pause
  • R — Restart level
  • Tab — Change game speed
  • 1..4 — Select a tool
  • Left-click (with an active tool) — Use the tool
  • Right-click — Deactivate the tool


  • How does the "Bait" work?
  • When a worm bonks into a wall and can’t decide between going left or right (because both directions are equally [un]obstructed), normally it always goes right. But if you place a bait, it will move in the direction of the closest bait instead.

    The bait is only considered when left and right paths are equally good. If one of them requires digging and the other doesn’t, the bait will be ignored and the second one will be selected.

Linux builds

Hii, I've made a video about the game and wanted to share some feedback about it, hopefully is it useful to you ^^.

-The concept of the game is really interesting.

-The gameplay mechanics are really interesting and the gameplay in general feels really dynamic and fun for a puzzle game.

-The visual style of the game really got my attention when I saw the screenshots and while playing I really liked it ^^.
