10tons Announces Swingworm, a Platformer Experience Like No Other

Tampere, Finland November 10, 2011 Swingworm is a refreshing new platformer game by 10tons Ltd, makers of award winning games such as Azkend, Sparkle, Grim Joggers, and Joining Hands.

The titular character in Swingworm is a stretchy caterpillar determined to climb the highest tree in Whispering Woods. His dream is to see the Moon with his own eyes from the top of that tree. The adversary in this swinging tale is the sinister Big Bug who claims to own the tree and demands delicious berries as a payment for climbing the tree.

Controlling Swingworm has an original and intuitive feel. The player moves Swingworm by grabbing his head or tail and flinging or pulling it as far as his stretchy body allows. Swingworm holds on to surfaces with his teeth and spiked tail and must always remain attached to a surface from either end.


  • Fresh and original worm-physics
  • Nearly a hundred levels
  • Funky sound track
  • Bright and cheerful art
  • Achievements

Swingworm will be soon available for iPhone and iPad, with other platforms following later.
