Swipe for Your Life! Outrun the Giant Space Worm in Worm Run Today for iOS


New mobile game from indie New York developer Golden Ruby Games offers unique D-Pad-free touch-based controls

NEW YORK – Feb. 21, 2013 – Golden Ruby Games, an independent New York-based game developer, today launched Worm Run, a procedurally generated, frenetic and fast-paced endless runner for iOS devices. Worm Run puts players in the space boots of Zeke Tallahassee, a hapless space janitor on the run from a completely insatiable, omnivorous galactic worm. Worm Run is available now in the App Store for $0.99 as a universal app.

Allowing on-screen D-Pads to go the way of the space dodo, Golden Ruby Games seeks to offer a simple, more intuitive gameplay experience for touch-based games.  Worm Run allows players to run for their lives by swiping anywhere that is comfortable, in any direction on-screen to escape the predatory space worm.

With procedurally generated worlds, every adventurous run that players embark on will be completely new, encountering items like Skunk Juice to impede the worm and ultimately buy Zeke more time—to travel more distance—while exploring a variety of areas such as the cavernous temple.

Worm Run features:

  • Control Zeke quickly by swiping anywhere on-screen to move — no D-Pad needed!
  • Crisp, Retina display visuals in a retro-style side-scrolling experience
  • Enjoy modern-retro chiptune-style music
  • Expect a different experience every time you play with new procedurally generated maps
  • Collect Grubies to purchase crazy items like the noxious Skunk Juice and Slow Spice made of worm eye-crust to help you outrun the Worm
  • Challenge and compete with friends in Game Center to get the best distance
  • Traverse five unique and challenging worlds including the Space Ship and Temple
  • Avoid hazards while running for your life
