Worm Whomper by Activision (Part 2): Tips Tricks Hints and Strategies

11:46 AM PST, 4/14/2018

Continued from Part 1... Some bugs will attack in straight lines, while others have a wavering pattern or diagonal attack patterns. The oncoming waves of bugs have different elimination amounts. Certain bugs only take one hit to kill and others could take up to seven hits to kill. There are snail shells and slug slime that clutters the field of attack. The spray gun will not penetrate these hazards, but the plough ball will. There are moths which do not eat your corn stalks, but do however drop eggs that hatch into caterpillars that do eat your corn stalks. So be vigilant about which bugs you kill and their screen placement to where you're remaining corn stalks are. This game uses a side view of attacking, but game play is much like the game Missile Command which uses a vertical view of attacking. You must defend the remaining corn stalks that are yellow and that are closest. After all you wouldn't want to be shooting bugs at the top of the screen when your corn stalk is at the bottom, placing it in jeopardy of being eaten. You must be observant of which bug is of more importance and danger to the corn. Spray the larger bugs first because they move the fastest and do the most damage. This game does have a pause feature so you can come back at a later time and continue game play. You press the numbers "1 & 9" or "3 & 7" at the same time to initiate this feature. I wouldn't however recommend this if you live in a state which has a lot of lightning and or you live in an area which has a lot of power outages. *TIPS: Use survival instinct on what to protect most, so you can last longer. As you play, your hand will endure a lot of pain and cramping due to the unusual shape of the Intellivision controller, not to mention the wear and tear on the disc from constant movement. This is a long game and your hands must be conditioned to endure.
