Getting Eaten by a Giant Worm is the Point of Nidhogg 2

The worm has turned and left me here

Nidhogg 2 is a game in which two players fight across side-scrolling levels, each attempting to be the first to reach their opponent's final screen and be devoured by Nidhogg, a mythological Norse serpent. Watch as Mike and I throw swords, daggers and curses at each other in this Nidhogg 2 gameplay.

While the original Nidhogg was a lot of fun, it could hardly be said to be pretty to look at. There are no such worries in Nidhogg 2, which has a colourful, vibrant pixel-art style that looks great, right up until you cover it in gloopy player guts.

Nidhogg 2 is out on Xbox One on release date 19 July 2018.
