Description[edit | edit source]

Super Nibbly is a development of Nibbly '92 from 1992. Here you play the saucy worm "Jean Flups" on the map of Nibbland from town to town (whereby each town consists of 4 maps). As a speciality, many extras are hidden in the levels (bonus time, extra points, etc.). Furthermore, you can shoot your own head with the help of Pucks and by this keep the body short. In the higher levels, there are one-way streets and you can proceed over or under bridges. There is also a level with invisible pills.

Design[edit | edit source]

... Jean Flups, the rushing worm on his journey ...
... a short animation from the game ...

The single levels (villages) can be chosen with a password. In the game itself not much has happened, the extras were added. The sound is as good as in the previous version. As an intermediate sequence there is the map with a cutely animated worm. The highscore liste is not saved in the original version (but see version "Super-Nibbly-(+hi)-(v1)")

Hints[edit | edit source]

Extras[edit | edit source]

Puckx.PNG Puck Can be shot with fire. Munching without growing.
Uhrx.PNG Clock 40 seconds extra time.
Tortex.PNG Fruit Gets 100, 200, 400, 800 points and finally an extra life.
Skullf.png Skull Loss of a life.
Blitzf.png Flash End level prematurely.
Herzf.png Heart Extra live
Topfx.png Power can Allegedly, the worm gets a speeder, but was not seen yet...
Kolbengw.png Elixir 1 Worm is shortened a bit.
Kolbenbx.PNG Elixir 2 The body of the worm is completely removed.
Sonnedickf.PNG Big sun Pills get bigger and the growth gets more by this.
Sonnekleinf.PNG Small sun Pills get smaller and the growth gets less by this.
The sun gets big and small in turns, therefore the time of picking it up is decisive for the effect!
  • there is an extra life every 10.000 points.

Controls[edit | edit source]

  • To leave the title screen press the fire button.
  • Then a password can be entered to begin at a higher level.
  • Confirm with the "Return" key. If no password was entered, the game will start in the first town.
  • In the game you can switch to pause any time by pressing the key "F1".
  • By pressing the key "Restore" the current level is started anew. This costs one life.
  • Jean Flups follows the joystick movements.
  • By pressing the fire button a "Puck" is shot.

Solution[edit | edit source]

  • A speciality are the bridges that give the game an additonal appeal. Rounds with bridges should be solved "with special reluctance"...
  • You will visit the following villages in the course of the game: Vorhopfen, Knapicken, Suridopfi, Schnupfdi, Valfasili, Kornappen, Schnapsen, Willimock, Buliwulln, Alfranzen, Vorgraunz, Samsidipf, Wulewupfn, Krooaarck. These villages are at the same time the passwords.
  • The version by Excess crashes after Alfranzen. The version from C64Games do also load Vorgraunz and seem bug-free.
Passwords for the villages...

Cheats[edit | edit source]

  • The version by Excess (can be found in the Gamebase64) has 6 trainers and unfortunately a faulty highscore saver, (crash before entering into the highscore list)...

Reviews[edit | edit source]

FXXS: "If you liked Nibbly '92, you will get a successful follower. If you did not know Nibbly before should rather try the forerunner first, the time limit and level desgin are not really beginner-friendly but varies in the higher levels between mere speedruns and puzzle rounds. All-in-all a 8,6, so a close 9."

TheRyk: "The bonus items and the 'pucks' you need to complete some of the levels are nice extras. Graphics are pretty much the same as in the predecessor, but there's more and better music and a bunch of new surprising and challenging levels. Great stuff, Sommer family, 9 points!"

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

  • In the version "Super-Nibbly-(+hi)-(v1)" available on, the highscore list can be saved on disk and also reset to basic values (reset, then load "SAVEHI" and start, see info file in the zip).
