Fat Worm Blows A Sparky, ZX Spectrum

Quite possibly the maddest (and best) video game title of all time, Fat Worm Blows A Sparky was a critical hit back in 1986 when it was first released.

The brainchild of programmer Julian Todd, Fat Worm Blows A Sparky is an overhead, 3D maze game where you control a worm-like creature that moves across the surface of a circuit board of a ZX Spectrum. You have to collect 50 Spindles that are hidden about the landscape, before making your way to the disk drive in the centre of the maze to clone yourself.

If that sounds weird: playing it is even weirder. Fat Worm Blows A Sparky has to be one of the weirdest games of all time. But also very playable and fun. This is what great gaming is all about!

Fat Worm Blows A Sparky is an all time ZX Spectrum classic – never to be forgotten. And is fun to grab. So, go find it. And give it a try.
