WORM(6)                          Games Manual                          WORM(6)

     worm - Play the growing worm game

     worm [size]

     In worm, you are a little worm, your body is the "o"'s on the screen and
     your head is the "@".  You move with the hjkl keys and the arrow keys (as
     in the game snake).  If you don't press any keys, you continue in the
     direction you last moved.  The upper case HJKL keys move you as if you
     had pressed several (9 for HL and 5 for JK) of the corresponding lower
     case key (unless you run into a digit, then it stops).

     On the screen you will see a digit, if your worm eats the digit is will
     grow longer, the actual amount longer depends on which digit it was that
     you ate.  The object of the game is to see how long you can make the worm

     The game ends when the worm runs into either the sides of the screen, or
     itself.  The current score (how much the worm has grown) is kept in the
     upper right corner of the screen.

     The optional argument, if present, is the initial length of the worm.
