How to make a worm game

Let’s have some nostalgia here, we’ll take a look, how to make a simple worm game. The example codes have been coded in Monkey X Pro, but can be compiled with free Monkey X to desktop and HTML5. Perhaps someone will develop a fun worm game with Monkey X Pro to Android. 🙂


First, simple code where the player can just control the worm, that moves the very old traditional way:

Then a bit more advanced code, where the worm moves with step of one pixel, but one part of the worm is an oval that’s width and height are 16 pixels. This version is also a little game where eating the food lengthens the worm.

If you wan’t to see how above code works in practice, click here to play (HTML5 game). Feel free to use these codes.
