A port of an arcade game of the same name, the game puts you in control of a jeep that fires a cannon and missiles at assorted targets from a side scrolling perspective. In a similar vein to such war-themed vehicle based shooters as Tiger Heli, Silk Worm had interesting graphics and relatively fast-paced gameplay thanks to the nimble player controlled jeep that could travel freely on a two-dimensional level viewed from a top-down perspective. An interesting element of the game was the ability to rescue your comrades and carry them in the jeep with you. When your vehicle took a hit, the rescued hostages would be ejected from the vehicle and scatter, requiring you to drive around and gather them back up. The game employed some destructible environmental elements such as buildings and ancient ruins, and was quite interesting and challenging at the time.
