Not a Real Worms Game

It seems every time team 17 departs from the classic 2d worms action, they fail. This game keeps that record alive. While it's still 2d action/puzzle, it removes the real joy of worms fun from the game. It's a lazy, cheap knockoff of the old, shoot the ball, match colors, games that have been around forever. I didn't enjoy the game at all. I got it as part of a bundle, but I quickly uninstalled it, and will likely never download the game again. If you want the "match the color" action, popcap has a number of casual games of that ilk. But if you long to see annelids launch weapons of mass destruction at one another for fun and profit, this isn't the game for you. Look to worms reloaded, or worms world party, instead.

Pretty good Bust-a-Move clone.

So in my opinion it's the best spin-off from main Worms series. It's similar game to Bust-a-Move but much more expanded. Bust-a-Move (know also as Puzzle Bobble) was really simple game - you just had to remove all bubbles at top, while having few moves or rushing to destroy it before it will reach you. Worms Blast is same. It's also in my opinion a bit harder. Every weapon in this game have it's own trajectory, every time you miss the water level is rising and making it hard to avoid falling pieces. You also have health bar, when it will drop to 0 you will just "die". It's not only make game harder but also much more fun. You can "store" better weapons and use it when in trouble with blocks. There are also few playable characters - you don't need to play as a worm, but also as sheep or old explosive woman. It have plenty of missions and stuff like local multiplayer, so you can fight against your friends/family on shared screen.

I can recommend this game to Worms and puzzle games fans. It's not like any other Worms game, but it's worth your time.

I enjoyed it very much, Worms Blast has a nice visual, bright colors and stuff. Pretty useful to spend some hours playing without regret!

Pretty Good Game

Worms Blast is a departure from the traditional Worms gameplay but still makes for a fun experience. Instead of the turn based mayhem, 2 players fight against each other in real time. You shoot coloured blocks, collect weapons and attempt to kill your opponent on the other side of the divider. There are a large variety of weapons, ranging from the traditional bazooka to the gigantic sea monster and the hungry piranhas. There is also a single player mode, called puzzle where the game offers you an array of challenges which will not only test your Worms Blast abilities, but also your ability to problem solve. You unlock characters and game modes as you progress and you can use them when playing against a friend or AI opponent in versus mode. The game has a nice visual style with bright colours and the accompanying music suits the cheerful atmosphere of the game well. Worms fans may be disappointed with the game’s departure from the traditional gameplay, but Worms Blast is a pretty solid game is its own right and offers a fun experience.
