The Polar Express-like train of Christmas editions just keeps on chugging, as developer Deceased Pixel has now announced a version of their popular Super Mega Worm [99¢/Lite] that will feature ol' St. Nick himself, titled Super Mega Worm Vs. Santa. For those not in the know, Super Mega Worm is a game we reviewed last August that has you playing as a gigantic worm who leaps from the ground destroying as much of modern humanity as possible. It draws inspiration from the original Flash version of Death Worm [99¢], but has some slightly different gameplay mechanics and great 8-bit pixel art.

Super Mega Worm Vs. Santa will be a separate release from the original, and feature 15 brand new levels that take place at the North Pole. Apparently Santa has made it to the naughty list of Wojira the Mega Worm, and now him and his army of toy making elves are in for a world of pain. The Mega Worm will have 3 new super abilities and there are over 15 new items to eat and destroy in two different game modes. Of course, the end of the game will feature a boss fight against Santa himself.

Super Mega Worm Vs. Santa has been submitted and is expecting to launch sometime this week for 99¢. It will be a universal app and features Game Center integration for leaderboards and achievements. More information and additional screens can be found in the upcoming games thread in our forums, and if you've grown tired of all the stories about saving Christmas, be on the lookout for Super Mega Worm Vs. Santa this week for your chance to finally destroy Christmas.

    should be an update instead of a full game, it doesnt have Angry Birds or Cut the Rope fame, and a dollar for just 15 levels???

    Super Mega Lame. Now I know why the original game hasn't yet been updated with:

    - New Game Modes
    - New Environments
    - New Delicious Items to Eat
    - New Special Abilities

      Initially I was inclined to agree with you as I get angry whenever it feels like Devs just wanna milk us, however I thought logically, ITS ONLY 99cents. I just think of this as some type of DLC. Besides like so many others have pointed out before. If your too cheap to complain & buy apps in most cases that cost no more than a bag of chips, maybe you shouldn't rethink all your other purchases.

      It's funny how people can buy apple products impulsively yet think twice about a 99c app in the app store.

      Its the holiday season, don't be such a SCROOGE.

    Very neat, but why are many developers doing this???

    Specifically, Robot Unicorn comes to mind...and now this...
