    You made me think there was a new Worms game announced called "Worms: Bustin Yo Bunker". And then I find out that is not the case. damnyou.gif

    The only Worms game I have is Open Warfare 2 for DS, and it is awesome. It will never get old with how you can customize almost anything and everything in it.

    The Worms Game used to be Worms: Armageddon for the PC. Nowadays it's whatever has the most player base.


    I remember when there was this program called the Fiddler, where you could basically design your own weapons, like a minigun that shot poison donkeys that rubberbanded across the landscape and exploded into 20 kamikaze worms which exploded into rocket bananas that homed in on enemy worms and set them on fire forever then punted them 10000 feet into the air with zero gravity before exploding into 400 holy hand grenades which crashed the game


    Or the landmass strike where a flying fat guy dropped 5 entire landscapes on top of your landscape that bounced right above each worm's head a hundred times a second before exploding into a five minute fireworks display of every sprite in the game and ended up causing 1 damage to everyone

    The original Worms Armageddeon is still the worms game to play. World Party is okay in that it's basically the exact same game but with actual in game settings for Forts. Everything after that is pretty much butts other than the portable ones which I've never played.

    Worms Armageddon was (or still is) the definitive Worms game, but it does have some issues nowadays with systems newer than XP. It does work, but you might have to do some elbow grease last I checked (even with the latest patch from '08, which is pretty good for a game coming from 1999).


    Of interest for some: there's an open source Worms clone available called Hedgewars, and when I say "clone", I mean it. Even UI elements are lifted from Worms 2/Armageddon/World Party, except you're playing with hedgehogs instead. I played a few rounds with a friend over the Internet, and it's pretty decent.

    Original Worms on the Amiga. It has a classical purity that I don't feel the other Worms match.

    Also the AI opposing teams on the Amiga version weren't either total bullshit cheap or utterly moronically dumb like they were on the PC version.

    From Wiki, the least credible site on the internets:
    Worms: Reloaded is an artillery game/turn based strategy game developed by Team17 and is part of the Worms series. It is scheduled for release on Windows via Steam, during Summer 2010[1]. Team17 have stated that a Mac OS X version will be developed after Steam is released on Mac. The developers have stated that the game will be retailed at a 'very attractive price'[2].

    The game is largely based upon the console version Worms 2: Armageddon released on Xbox Live Arcade in 2009, but is said to be an 'extended edition of the console versions of late.'

    Team17 have currently released few details or media content concerning the title and a press release is not available. A European and Worldwide Beta had been released to a select group of the public, however both were under an NDA.

    On June 26, 2010, the official Team17 Twitter revealed that the beta testing phase had ended.

    Explodes? I'm not sure what kind of answer you were hoping for here.

    Press fire to launch, press again to 'splode, if it gets stuck in the landscape it will eventually self destruct. Power roughly on a par with dynamite.

    It walks/jumps forward for a bit and then it explodes. You might be able to detonate it manually, it's been a while since I've played Worms. The super sheep can fly and is fully controllable. Also, all kinds of sheep can be used to pick up crates.

    I remember playing against an AI team once on Worms United where on the AI's move, all it did was blow up the ground below a ledge where my worm was standing.

    I thought they'd missed, but it was actually so I couldn't get down from that ledge without taking damage, so I had to faff around using indirect grenade throwing. Smug electronic bastards.

    This is a story of courage, honour and worms.

    War had cast a shadow over their once peaceful land, gunfire filled the air, as worm turned against worm. Where so many had fallen, others knew they must follow. For one such worm, this day had alredy come, when he was two, his father had left, never to return. Three years he had waited for his chance to fight, three years of training, both day and night. And though he was scared as he set off for battle, he knew in his heart that it was something he must do. Three inches tall, and armed to the teeth, a fine soldier he made, and his name was Boggy B.

    [Chorus]: We are worms, we're the best, and we've come to win the war We'll stand, we'll never run, stay until it's done Though our friends may fall, and our world be blown apart We'll strike with all our might, We'll fight for what is right till the end.

    Scrambling up a hill and hiding behind a tree, he looked at the battle that raged below. It was there he saw his friend Spadge, stood upon a bridge but another worm had also seen him, and aimed to have him dead Boggy called to Spadge, but Spadge didn't hear, he never knew what hit him, as he flew into the air. It was all to much for Boggy, as he watched his best friend die. Charging down the hill he had to have revenge, What had Spadge done to come to such an end? Reaching the bottom of the hill, Boggy suddenly heard a click he realised to is terror there was a mine under his tail!

    [Chorus]

    We are worms, we're the best, and we've come to win the war We'll stand, we'll never run, stay until it's done Though our friends may fall, and our world be blown apart We'll strike with all our might, We'll fight for what is right till the end.

    Hitting several cliffs and landing in a tree, Boggy pulled himself together, there was much he had to do. Spotting the enemy down below, he knew this was his chance. Boggy grabbed a stick of dynamite and dropped it on his head. The enemy, he tried to run, but all he could really do was squirm. As the fuse ran out there was a mighty *BANG*!, and everywhere were bits of worm. With their leader blown to kingdom come, the enemy, they turned and ran! Boggy bungeed from the tree and landed safely on the ground. As he watched the enemy squirm away, the cry went up: 'WE'VE WON THE WAR!'

    [Chorus]

    Of course, there seems to be some disagreement on the bit that comes after "We are worms" - I always heard it as "We are worms, we're hard, and we've come to win the war". Still possibly the most intense narration of a Tanks/Gorrilas clone I've heard to date.

    Worms was cemented in my mind in primary school. We'd loaded it onto one of the school computers and I managed to win with a Kamikaze on my last worm.

    It was down to me and him. I was directly underneath, aimed straight upward, knocked him into the river. My worm flew up into the air, came flying right back down, and he hit the grond. Didn't explode. Just popped out again.

    Lost 2 health.

    I once had an enemy with about 30 health, and me with 2 worms each with about 5 health. Neither of us had much in the way of fancy weapons, and it would have been nearly impossible for me to get a good hit with anything normal. It was obvious that on his next turn he'd use Airstrike or something to win the match, so I needed to do something impressive. Very impressive.

    Fortunately I had an ace up my sleeve.



    I had a Teleport.

    I teleport my worm as high as the map will let me. My opponent (younger brother) exclaims "why did you do that?" - then it dawns on him. I've teleported directly above his one remaining worm.

    My worm hits him doing what looks like Mach 3. His worm is unhurt. Mine dies.

    By exploding.


    Won the match. My brother won't play me any more.
