UrthWurm is an excellent PC version of SFCave, the [in]famous PalmOS worm game by SunFlat, a Japanese programmer. This PC version coded by BdR in Turbo Pascal 7.0 is very faithful to the original, and no less addictive.The gameplay is deceptively simple: press the SPACEBAR to make the worm rise, and release it to make it dive. If it hits any part of the cave, it's game over. The score goes up for as long as your worm is alive.

UrthWurm is one of those games that have laughably short learning curves, but will glue you to the screen for hours on end. Note that the special bonus you get at the end of each level is different for each difficulty setting (easy, normal, or hard). Highly recommended, and also check out the on-line Java version below.
