How to play Pinchworm game

When I heard a couple of my friends talk about the Pinchworm game it sounded pretty easy. So planned to get ma hands on the game real quick and make better progress than them. Only after starting to play the game did I realize that its not a cakewalk 🙂 For starters, the game is very appealing with its cute worms, beautiful graphics for the background, and a lovely story line. Lets now checkout How to play Pinchworm.

Story line:

In Pinchworm game, worms are the stars( which means You are a worm in the game ). You fall in love with another cute worm & a a monstrous bird ( early bird ) takes your lover worm away. Being the star worm of the game, you have to rescue your lover from a land far far away. You’ll need to dig, jump & inch your way to avenge the bird and save the love of your life 🙂 This is how you play Pinchworm.

There are only two types of hurdles on your way ie. horizontal and vertical.To overcome these hurdles you either need to jump or dive.You need to pinch your fingers together to hop over rocks and pull them apart to dig under flowers. Though it seems pretty straight forward, the tough part is to quickly decide whether to jump or dive as soon as you see the obstacle. One wrong decision or movement & you are back to the start. Everytime you are back to the start, more the urge you have to play it again. This is what drive’s you to play the game non-stop & this is what makes Pinchworm game addictive. You need to collect 30 award badges ( which is really hard ). If you master the game you can dominate the scoreboard 🙂
