I do not have this for my INTV. What is it like. Oh yeah I do not post INTV scores because I'm still working on my ATARI scores

I don't play a whole lot of Intv. because 2600 is my favorite system to play, followed by NES & Gameboy, then probably Genesis & SNES.  but I do have a go or 2 or 3 at whatever is being played in the Intv. high score club at AA.  that was how I discovered Worm Whomper.  I think it's about my favorite Intellivision game. 

it reminds me a lot of Plants vs. Zombies, but it's all action, no strategy elements. 

or you could think of it as similar to Missile Command but horizontal & with worms & slugs & roaches, etc. .. instead of missiles. 

--and a garden, so you have corn-stalks getting eaten instead of cities being destroyed.  you run around with a rapid-fire pesticide-megablaster!  

it's pretty impressive for a game from that time... look at all that stuff on the screen, those are all individually moving critters!   they're not limited to "lanes" either like the zombies in PvZ.  when you get kind of far into the game you've just got mobs of critters coming at you all at once, it's really pretty funny & addicting.  laugh
