Red worm = > -10 points
Yellow worm = > +25 points
Purple worm = > +1 life

Your Crab eats worms.
Lobsters eat crabs and spiders.
Spiders eat Flies.
Flies infect worms which is displayed by other colors of the worms. Lobsters will die when they eat too many red worms.
Mutated Spiders (blue) also kill Lobsters.
Mutated Lobsters (black) also eat mutated spiders.

If a lobster tries to eat you, you will lose a life. Mutated lobsters and spiders let you lose two lives. The game ends when you lost all your lives.

Good luck!

Please make the crab stop if it reaches the end of the world. But it's a nice little game :-)


please code lives
A new version of this scenario was uploaded on Mon Nov 25 16:32:18 UTC 2013 Added the possibility to turn off sounds with "a". Turn them on with "s". The background music is probably still broken. In Greenfoot, I get an error message, but it does play the loop. Well, I will see what happens when it is uploaded. It is "off" at default and can be (or not...) activated with "x" and deactivated with "y". Like I said, it probably does nothing. Some other changes: - Worms can only be infected by worms as they are young (one minute after "birth"). - If a worm got visited by flies five times and is still green, then it is also resistant against infections. These changes were needed to prevent players from just wait until all worms "changed their color" to get many lives. - Changed the conditions, that the waves appear. In simple words, the first ones appear later, the later ones earlier. At about 18k+ points, it is the same again. Deleted the easy lobster-only wave to make it a bit harder. But it looks like it is still too easy. Pause with "esc" besides "p" is also possibly now.


Great... I started a game a few days ago and everyday I played a bit further. I came to 66666 and 'collected' all enemies to lose lives But the storing didn't work... maybe because I wasn't online the whole time, but I don't know. Won't do it again, this game is still far too easy and not a real challenge =/
