Jump, dive, and stay alive. The controls for Pinchworm are simple, but require quick reactions. To make your worm jump, slide your thumbs together on the screen and to make it dive, slide them apart. Jump over rocks, hills, and smaller obstacles, while diving under flowers, flagpoles, and taller obstacles. If you hit obstacles three times, your game is over.

Jump, dive, and stay alive
Characters and awards

Characters and awards. You can unlock different Pinchworm characters like Pinky, Cameron O’Flage, Glowy, and Groovy. Some are also available via in-app purchase starting at $0.99. You can earn great rewards for getting high scores. Then, check out the leaderboard with Game Center support and invite friends to play too.

Various environments. Each character comes with its own unique environment. For example, Groovy gives you vibrant colors, flagpoles to dive under, and what almost look like guitar picks to jump over. But, if you enjoy the original scene, you can stay there and hop over the rocks and under the flowers with Diggy, Bluto, or Pinky.
