Play is a big part of how kids learn. Our brains, like our muscles, need exercise and challenges. We’re here to help. White Pixels. Better games. Smarter kids.


Inch Worm was designed with kids in mind. It’s safe, non-violent, and ad-free. It runs offline. There are no in-app purchases and no links to outside content.


Exploration: Kids learn the rules and the strategy gradually through exploration. They learn from both their successes and their mistakes.

Planning: Some kids will plan Inch’s entire route. Others will look for the next step that does no harm. Appropriate subgoals help kids solve advanced puzzles. It’s all good.

Logic: The critters (snails, ladybugs, and dragonflies) form sets based on their color. These colors are used to introduce the concepts of “not” and “any”.


We want everyone to be able to play.

Color Blind: You can distinguish the blue, red, and yellow snails, ladybugs, dragonflies, and homes by the shape of their little dots. That’s all you need to know.

Non-Readers: Reading isn’t necessary to play. Tell your non-readers to lead Inch home. Obey the one-way signs. Eat the cherries. Push the acorns out of the way. Push and pull the critters to homes that match their color. Or just let them figure it out.

Autism Spectrum: Every child is different. It’s okay to lead Inch around all day long. There’s no timing involved. The early puzzles are relatively easy. Later puzzles require planning. There’s always the “Go Back” and “Try Again” buttons.

Mobility Impairments: You only need to tap on the squares to play. There’s no timing involved. The tap areas are about one-eighth of the width of the screen. Tap “Go Back” if you occasionally miss.

I'd love to hear how it goes for you.

Enjoy the game!

Challenging, addictive and fun!

This is a fantastic app for both my 6 year old and me. My daughter can get frustrated but then be so proud at the end. If she ever asks for my phone I know which app she's going to open. I love that she's addicted!

Developer Response ,

That's great! Thanks for the positive review. The magic happens when your daughter gets stuck, struggles then succeeds.
