You must guide a hungry baby millipede gobbling up red fruits whilst avoiding the deadly rocks. Naturally, if you guide him backwards he will bite himself and die. Every time he eats a fruit he grows by one segment. When it reaches a length of 40 segments, you will have to guide another faster baby millipede on a new screen.

You have three lives at your disposal. The score is constantly updated and because all the calculations and the printing of the millipede's segments are done in machine code, the action is very fast. If you want to change your speed press Escape, this will revert you back to the instructions without clearing the high score. Use Z and X for left and right respectively, and the colon and oblique stroke for up and down.
