Scribble Worm for the BlackBerry PlayBook is a highly addictive game that will keep you on your toes – wait, most worms don’t have toes…or feet…or legs for that matter. I’m not sure what it is about games stylised in scribble or a hand drawn manner, but I find them entertaining and makes me reminisce of my own scribbles from years ago. Your goal in Scribble Worm is to get those little green guys to that shiny red apple at the end. Is it a MacIntosh? A red Delicious? Don’t worry about that, just worry about drawing a safe path for the worms to follow. Obstacles come in the form of walls of three different colours – use the blue walls to bounce off of, avoid the red walls at all costs and slowly slide along grey walls. Some are stationary, some are not, so it’s all about angles and timing. Worms will either go in the straight line you drew them in or will turn if you draw them with a curved line. If you’re having trouble, the game has a Hint option with will help you point your green fruit worm in the right direction
Now you may be tempted with drawing a grovelling of worms to flank that fruit, but keep in mind that Scribble Worm is also keeping score. Each level has a par, so as long as you match it, you’ll get a perfect score, and a 4 star rating. Like me, you’ll probably find yourself playing again and again to ensure you get 4 out of 4 stars.
Scribble Worm groups its puzzles into Puzzle Books; 6 books in all, with 8 levels in each. The game also includes a multiplayer mode, where you and a friend must race head to head to be the first to the apple in the center. In this game mode, the scores are simply a tally of how many apples each player has gotten. It’s a great game that will guarantee to challenge and entertain those of almost any age. You can grab Scribble Worm for $0.99 from BlackBerry App World.
