Description

This is a puzzle game where you are a caterpillar, inspired by the game Snakebird.
In each level, you have to eat all of the fruit before making it to the goal. Each
fruit makes you bigger, and because caterpillars cannot in fact phase through
themselves, you have to be careful not to get stuck! Also, caterpillars are not
immune to the force of gravity, so you will fall down if you aren't standing on
something. Oh, and spikes. Did I mention the spikes? Yeah, those will kill you too if
you're not careful. Although the earlier levels are somewhat easy, they get a LOT
more difficult later on, providing you with plenty of playtime. There are 25 levels
in total. Good luck!

It works also very well on the homescreen of my TI84+ CE,
but a adaption for the bigger homescreens with bigger levels would be very interesting!
At some levels I had to think very hard about the solution, so they were very much fun for me.
It`s a very interesting game with good physics and I didn`t see a similar calculator game before.
Nice job!

At first, I thought this would just be anotther snake clone. however, once I started playing, I quickly realized that this was not the case. This game makes great use of the homescreen, with the menus being simple yet easy to understand and navigate. The physics are a little hard to grasp at first, as jumping and climbing over your own tail looks strange due to the way graphics were done here(a fair amount of "flicker"). However, it doesn't take away from the fun of climbing ceilings.

Overall, 7.8/10. The game does what it set out to do and has enough depth to make this worth downloading, but it feels a bit clunky, and some mechanics like climbing the walls aren't the most clearly explained in the README.
