This game is the original worms game, which is so old that you could call it vintage. The game takes you back in time to when games were mainly two dimensional and graphics were very often very pixelated. The game is still a lot of fun, but different quality in comparison to the new quality version Worms games. It's interesting to see the differences from the newer Worms games compared to the original and I recommend you get all the worms games to see the transitions and changes throughout the entire worms franchise, well or at least look into it because the games are a lot of fun to play with friends. Who doesn't love the Worms games? Honestly, if you haven't played a Worms game before you have to. You haven't truly lived until you've played one and it can be any of them. This is a really fun game and I really enjoyed playing the game at its most original and basic roots.
The Worms franchise has had a strong presence during my formative years as a child. It all started with this one game. I'll admit that the graphics are quite dated, and the newer games have features that are beyond this title, but all the core gameplay elements are already present in this one, which to me is a sign that from the very start, they got things about right. This is a nice slice of the past that people should definitely get a taste of.
They are pink, wriggly and very, very dangerous. Since the beggining of Worms series this game had one objective - total war. No matter if you have played new Worms games, it still same fun playing - with friends, or with computer player. Sure, it's not fun to play with AI, but since this one don't have multiplayer option and finding some friend in real life that love good old Worms would be hard, it's the only way to enjoy this game. Getting this game for the purpose of seeing how much Worms developed is also good idea. I mean, it's all remained same but was polished over the years. It's a hard work to make something good even better, and I think Team 17 is the best when it comes to that. I'm also glad that game that old make it one Steam - there are many players that just love classics, and having everything in one place is comfortable. Playing original Worms after so many years is just amazing.
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.
