A version of the classic worm game, played in non-Euclidean space - that is to say, on the surface of various three-dimensional shapes. It features retro-style vector graphics, exciting differential geometry and almost guaranteed nausea!

What's New

This game is a masterpiece of fine gaming at its best.
A simple concept amplified by 3d to become the image perfection.

Make sure to pick some of the other geometry from the level menu.

Excellent little game! Especially fun because of the 3d surfaces, and high speed.

Downloaded MacSwear but it just won't launch. Tried downloading using two different browsers; no go. I'm running 10.3.9.

Amazing! Who'd have thought that the age-old 'Worm' concept could be so interesting? Very clever indeed, though the 'hyper' levels (Klein Bottle, Spiral etc.) can be pretty confusing.

I'd like to see options to set the thickness of the lines and to go full-screen, and it would be good if you could 'win' a level and progress to a new shape. (Perhaps you can, but I haven't seen it happen yet!)

A genuine 'Apple' level (apple shape with stem, as in the application icon) would be a fun addition.

As it stands, though, it's really impressive.

I don't have a 10.3 machine, so I haven't been able to test it. Could you open up /Applications/Utilities/Console.app and tell me what it says about the crash?

Ah yes, I see. I'll try to have it fixed in the next version.
