A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

UPWORM is a physics challenge platformer. Guide your worm up the sculptures, can you reach the top?

TIPS: This is a challenging experience but it can be completed.  A two axis controller is a bit easier than using the keyboard.  For the harder jumps think of the worm as a spring that must be coiled.

Music by me, selfsame, made mainly this week for #looptober.

Based linux port

hey has anyone officially uploaded a speedrun of upworm i looked on speedrun.com and youtube and couldnt find anything

This is shockingly tough. A good challenge for anyone with the patience and skills, which is not necessarily me haha


I'm struggling a little to understand the controls, I would think that you just have control of both ends, eezy peezy. If I hook one end, I feel I can use it to hold myself while swinging up my backside. For some reason I can't? It's like I only have the strength to move one end at a time, which I'm guessing might be a choice to increase the difficulty. 

It doesn't necessarily seem bad, just tough. I'm slowly getting the mechanic and had a few good runs, made it to the final statue to the left before moving up to the next level. 

Might give this a few more tries, see if I can get a handle on it.

i literaly couldnt make it past the first one lol

The worms move so realistically that it sent chills down my spine as I hate bugs, but I had a lot of fun playing! It took me a while to get the hang of the controls, and it took me a little over an hour to clear the game, but I managed to finish it. I made a video of it so you can see how happy I was!
