The minimum score required in Worm Whomper by Activision for the Mattel Intellivision to earn a patch was: 75,000 points. The best advice in Worm Whomper is to read the manual, so that you know all of the nuances of the game. The manual gives some really good tips. Activision Worm Whomper for the Mattel Intellivision system is one of the more entertaining and at the same time grueling games to play. On this system you are provided with overlays that slip onto the gaming controller. These overlays show you which game to select. You chose either a one player game or a two player game. Player one is defined with blue overalls and uses the left side controller. Player two uses the right side and wears the black overalls. The players switch after one player has completed an entire wave of attacking insects. Wave after wave of insects invade the corn crops. The objective is to protect and defend these valuable crops and save farmer Felton's fields. There are many insect enemies that are hungry, such as worms, snails, slugs, and bugs of all sorts. There are twelve different ones to be exact. The defense is using a pumping container of pesticide to kill them. You also can use plough balls to flatten the bugs dead. It's sort of like using a smart bomb. The controls are by using the disc on the Intellivision controller. In the usual method there is up, down, left, and right. But you also can just tap in any direction on the disc to make minimal movements for precision in those directions. Use the "upper" side buttons for shooting the pesticide at the oncoming enemy bugs. You can either keep pressing the button for more accuracy or hold the button down for continual fire. The "lower" button is in charge of firing the plough balls. And again, by holding the button down you can fire multiple plough balls. Plough balls can flatten and kill each bug that's in its direct path of rolling or that lane. You start off with three plough balls, and are awarded three more for each wave that you complete. The farmer can utilize the entire screen and move about freely to protect the corn. You earn points for each bug killed. Bonus points are given at a value of "50x the wave" for each corn stalk that remains on the screen at the end of the wave. Your point value differs depending on which bug you kill. Some are worth only 1 point, where others are worth 7000 points. Also keep in mind these values are multiplied by the wave that you are on. So if you are on wave twenty, it would be 20x7000 for that specific bug point value. The tool shed is placed at the bottom middle of the screen. You go there to replace any spray gun containers that come in contact with any enemy bugs. When you do make contact with any bugs, the bugs die but you lose a spray gun. When you start the game, you will notice that there are 10 stalks of corn and there are several numbers that are about the screen. The numbers at the lower left side are the reserve corn stalks that you receive. The numbers in the upper left is where the extra plough balls are. You start off with three in reserve. The numbers in the middle are where your score will be. The numbers in the upper right are where the wave number is represented. The corn stalks that you are protecting turn brown when a bug comes in contact with it. But don't worry as it takes two contacts to make the corn wither. You get one replacement corn stalk at the beginning of each wave from the ones that you have in reserve. You get a bonus corn stalk at the end of every fourth wave. Continued in Part 2...
