(0 votes)

There’s no denying that the holiday season can leave us all feeling a little tired and worn down. It’s a time when we feel like we’re always on the go. So while there’s not a lot of time to be wasted, the truth is that a little distraction might be just what the doctor ordered. And an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

But not worms.

“Apple Worm” is a puzzle game that is just the right blend of cute, clever and easy to play for frittering away a few spare moments. You are a worm. Your goal is to make your way across various landscapes and disappear into your hole. That’s pretty much it – you move the worm with the arrow keys and try not to fall into the abyss.

The apples come in when you reach a point where getting to your hole is impossible without help – your body just isn’t long enough. Eating an apple will add a segment you your worm body and allow you to reach your goal. But you have to be clever – your range of motion is limited, so you sometimes need to strategize ways to get where you want to go.

Look, “Apple Worm” isn’t going to take up your entire afternoon. But if you’re looking to play something quick and easy for a few minutes, you could do worse. Play for free at
