worms game screen grab
A little game I wrote 2001-2, and just got round to republishing on my current site:
It's in Java, so you'll need a runtime of version 1.4 or up, though iirc it doesn't use anything that wasn't available in 1.1.

Warning: despite being so simple, it can get quite addictive, especially when you get to multiple spiders, they're just so damned annoying. I've just spent the entire morning (ahem) testing it.

I wrote a similar game round about 1978 in Macro-11, the assembler language for PDP-11's. While that game was somewhat simpler, round about 140 lines, there was one guy where I worked that it managed to consistently beat.

Have fun.
