This game became a classic real quick. Playing this with friends on a hotseat mode was the best. The best times were when the attempts of destruction failed horribly, either by ninja roping to a mine or some other fluke of the player's doing.
There were also adult themed maps for this available from users and of course I tried them. I was a teen, what else was I supposed to do?
The animation clips were pretty fun, too. Somehow, this game seems to have more character than its sequels. Maybe its just the pixels and the retro boom.

The start of a great franchise and in fact a revitalisation of a genre, Worms was a uniquely fun game at its time allowing you to play hot seat and yet still maintaining the flow of action. The graphics is not the most exquisite by now but it was one of the first games that used randomly generated maps so at least there is plenty of variety. It might not be a great game to play alone but if you have a few friends who would also enjoy blasting each other with weapons of mass destruction the game will ensure potentially an unlimited time of fun.

What do you get when you cross annelids with weapons? Madness, you say? Yeah, just about.
The point in worms is to have two teams of four worms aside, and you can employ any number of weapons and gadgets to cross terrain and blow your enemy to tiny bits, all in turn-based combat. What you don't have in your inventory initially you can collect from weapon crates that will drop in random places on the map during play. But it isn't just other worms you have to watch out for – there are also other dangers, like mines. Oh, and worms can't swim – at least not in this game.
The team (or what’s left of it) still standing (or should that be crawling?) wins the round. You can play against the computer (skirmish mode or campaign) or your friends, and there are many options for customisation, with the player being able to select the team’s language, names of the worms on the team, right down to the type of tombstone they will have when they die.
Graphically the game leaves some to be desired – but this is mainly in terms of the worms themselves. The battlegrounds and backgrounds are rather well detailed even today, and rather varied. You will never tire of randomly generating terrain in skirmish mode. The sound is the best bit as worms will utter the most hilarious things in battle, with sayings often coming directly from classic series like Monty Python and The Simpsons.
It's just incredible fun, and for the price at the moment, it's a no-brainer, really.

This is how everything begin. This is the mother of all Worms series... Worms (1). If you are older player and you play on system such is Amiga, you will not have a problem with graphic, and you will get on it very fast. For older player, please give a game chance, and don't look only graphic if you look only that you will miss such a great title.

The definitive classic turn-based game that started a legacy. I have many fond memories of playing this on friends who were fortunate to enough to own a computer at a time when this was released. Unfortunately the game has not stood the test time in terms of graphics and sound effects, both of which are rather rudimentary by today's standards.
However, the nostalgia factor is high and the gameplay is still as fun as it was back then. The satisfaction of nailing a tricky long-range shot still feels as good as it did way back then. However, if you are new to the series I would recommend giving this version a skip and head straight to Worms Armageddon. For those Worms addicts looking to relive those vintage years, definitely pick this one up as a memento of simpler times and an ode to a classic.
