Worms W.M.D

Worms WMD

Another major installment in the bestselling turn-based strategy game series that focus on a humorous rivalry between the eponymous worms. In Worms WMD, the basic gameplay principles remain unchanged, and the players still have to eliminate the opposite team using a number of more or less unconventional weapons. The participants make their moves in turns and their actions are limited by a time limit. The game refers to the initial two-dimensional installments of the series, which means that battles are presented from the classical side view. The title does not lack for several enriching novelties, though. These include the possibility to hide inside buildings and to use vehicles that allow us to traverse the battlefield and deal damage to the enemy. Visually, the production features the characteristic cartoonish visual style, although the worms’ appearance and animation were refreshed.

Mechanics

In Worms WMD, the basic goal of the game remained unchanged; our task is to eliminate the opposite team with the use of varied weapons arsenal. The matches played in turns and each participating players has a limited amount of time to make his move.

Similarly to the previous games, the available weapons are aplenty. Apart from standard ones such as a bazooka or an ordinary shotgun, there are also those less typical. Hostile worms can be attacked with, for instance, remote-controlled supersheep or exploding bananas, among other things. Of course, these are just examples of a myriad of gadgets that the pink earthworms have at their disposal.

The developers made sure they added a few novelties that refresh the tried gameplay formula. For the first time in the history of the series, worms can use vehicles to move around the battlefield. The players can, for example, drive a tank equipped with a cannon that deals massive damage. It is also possible to hide inside buildings on the map.
