WormRun for Windows 8.1 is a fun game in which you must help Zeke the space miner avoid a blood thirsty gigantic space worm from eating him alive. The game is entertaining and even supports your Xbox 360 controller for a console-like gaming experience.
"You are Zeke Tallahassee, hapless space miner in the wrong place at the wrong time. Move Zeke through an ever-changing labyrinth all while being chased by a blood-thirsty, gigantic space Worm. New for Windows 8, Worm Run boasts a completely new control scheme, allowing you to swipe anywhere on the screen, use your keyboard or plug in an Xbox 360 Controller. Although it is incredibly easy to pick up and play, Worm Run is incredibly difficult to master," the app description reads.
