You know who would be really great at Worm Run, the new endless runner from TriplePoint client Golden Ruby Games? Swiper, that fox character from Dora the Explorer. Swiping is pretty much all that guy does. It’s his raison d’être. So, since the game is played with no D-pad controls or button pushes, relying entirely on swiping, that guy would completely kill it. Right up until Dora screamed “Swiper, no swiping” and he stopped, and his on-screen character was straight up murdered by a ravenous space worm. Oh, maaaan.
From the press release:
Allowing on-screen D-Pads to go the way of the space dodo, Golden Ruby Games seeks to offer a simple, more intuitive gameplay experience for touch-based games. Worm Run allows players to run for their lives by swiping anywhere that is comfortable, in any direction on-screen to escape the predatory space worm.
With procedurally generated worlds, every adventurous run that players embark on will be completely new, encountering items like Skunk Juice to impede the worm and ultimately buy Zeke more time—to travel more distance—while exploring a variety of areas such as the cavernous temple.
Worm Run is available today and you can legally pay for it and not steal it, because
HEY. STOP IT.
