WORM(6) BSD Games Manual WORM(6)
worm -- play the growing worm game
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 (as in the game
snake(6)). 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 of the corresponding lower case key (9 for HL and 5 for JK, or
until you run into a digit, whichever comes first).
On the screen you will see a digit. If your worm eats the digit it will
grow longer by that number of "o"'s. The object of the game is to see
how long you can make the worm grow.
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, size, is the initial length of the worm's body.
The specified length will be rejected if it causes the worm to cover more
than roughly one third of the screen.
