Hello fellow Androidians,

The time has come to review one of the most famous games to ever set foot on a device, be it PC, cellphone, smartphone, or tablet : Worms. They are back, with a vengeance, and coming to an Android device near you!

We’ll break it down into three parts :

1) Gameplay and story.

2) How much does it cost?

3) Conclusion?

Part 1 : Gameplay and story?

Don’t tell me you need an introduction to Worms…Unless you have been living under a rock for like the past 10 years, you must have heard of this awesome, addicting and sometimes quite sadistic game. Most of you who read my blog probably don’t see much daylight anyway, so I’ll give it a short background story.

The original Worms game dates back to 1995. Yes, that’s right, a decade and a half ago. The game itself is a turn based game, which will probably be quite familiar to most of you readers. You control a team of worms (didn’t see that one coming did you?) and you try to eliminate the opposing team of worms (once again, a shocking revelation by yours truly) before they dispose of you.

Now, how to kill those worms, you may wonder? We all know they can be quite wriggly and cunning! Well, the game developers made sure you have plenty of ways to get the job done. A bucketload of weapons & props are available to you, ranging from a simple prod (or poke) to grenades, Uzi’s, rocket launchers, air strikes, Dragon ball Z moves (Kamehameha anyone?) and my personal favourite , the stone donkey statue.

Oh, i forgot to mention, they have exploding sheep aswell. Yep, exploding…sheep. Let that one sink in for a while before you read on…

Occasionally, you’ll also see a package drop from the sky. These can either be special weapons, health packages, etc. To stir things up, these usually drop right in the middle of enemy territory. Let the games begin, gentlemen and gentlewomen… Charge!

Something worth mentioning aswell, are the in-game sound effects. The weapons itself make accurate enough sounds, but its the voice overs of the worms which make the game even more fun and exciting. Ranging from British to Australian accents, silly talks, crazy sounds when doing a backflip, it all adds up nicely. If you never played Worms before, you’ve definitely missed out on something, but it’s not too late to convert!

To illustrate, I’ve added some screenshots from both the smartphone version  and also from the tablet version :

Part 2 : What does it cost?

Once again, not a free game i’m afraid. However, it comes ridiculously cheap at the price of 2.99 USD. A bargain really, for all the fun you’ll have playing this Android game. Purchase directly from the Android Market!.

Part 3 : Conclusion ?

Is it fun to play and even replay the levels?

Are you kidding me? This is Worms we’re talking about, infamous and nostalgic gameplay! Of course it’s fun, you’ll never get bored with this, trust me ! .

Is there anything new added compared to older versions? 

Haven’t seen much new really, but none of the awesome features got removed either, which is always a plus. Besides, now you can buy the portable versions of Worms to take with you anywhere in the world! .

NOTE : This game plays smoother on a tablet compared to a smartphone. The bigger screen makes it easier to play the game & get used to the controls. Just a personal opinion though.

Personal rating : 9/10
