Play the game that came to Stadia before Stadia came to the world. “Worm Game” is a humble title we used to test many of Stadia’s features, starting well before our 2019 public launch, right through 2022. It won’t win Game of the Year, but the Stadia team spent a LOT of time playing it, and we thought we’d share it with you. Thanks for playing, and for everything.

snake is a game of reflex, and the fact that the input delay makes the game almost unplayable (for most people) perfectly encapsulates the failure or stadia. lmfao.
Worm Game is a bonus game released days before the Google Stadia service shutdown. It served as a test game for Google developers to try different features and was offered free of charge to Stadia users as a farewell and thank you gesture.
The game is similar to the classic Snake game where your character (worm) keeps growing as you eat fruit. Collecting coins added to your overall level score. As opposed to some of the classic Snake variants, Worm Game ends upon the player reaching a certain worm length and thus unlocking new levels. Levels have increasing level of difficulty by adding obstacles.
Overall, this was a nice gesture from the Stadia team and the game featured the simple pick up and play nature of the classic Snake games with added features such as online leaderboards, achievements and such.
