This colorful game may look like it's for kids, but Super Nibbly is actually pretty hard. You beat each level by eating all the dots with your worm. However, each time you eat a dot, your worm becomes bigger by one space. You get three lives and there's also a time limit for every level. The game is made up of many sets of levels, represented by the different locations on the map.

It takes a while to get the hang of it, but the levels can generally be beaten after a bunch of tries if you learn from your mistakes and adjust. The best advice I can give is don't eat too many dots at once. After you have eaten some try to walk on empty areas. This lets you reorganize and plan ahead easier.

For those that are having a lot of difficulty beating the first level, I've written a walkthrough for it that you can download below. It will be posted in the forum too. Also, the game looks different (and better) than it does in the last two screenshots. For some reason the screenshots take weird with this game.
