Worms wiggle their way back.
When Worms was released in 1995, Team17 had an instant classic on their hands. It was simple, yet extremely addictive, and like nothing else around. Over the years, the series has grown. We have seen some classis sequels, like Worms Armageddon, to spin-offs like Worms 3D. It's hard to believe how well the simple formula has lasted, but Team17 have proved it's still going strong.
Worms Revolution doesn't go back to 3D. However, it does use 3D structure to make the classic formula look far more interesting. Instead of flat objects, Worms Revolution takes place in a 2.5D perspective. It makes the game really stand out, and it's visually impressive. It also brings more life to the game, with moving objects in the background.
The biggest improvement in Worms Revolution is it's dynamic water. Team17's new engine provides an all new experience for fans of the series. Water can now move freely throughout the environment, making it a great advantage against your wiggly foes. For example, water could be hold up within the landscape, you can then blow it up to send it flowing across the environment, or washing out your enemies. Objects are also placed across the landscape, and these will move when the environment is effected by firepower. These new physics are a great addition, and are sure to change your way of strategy.
Worms Revolution contains a lengthy campaign, offering 32 unique levels. You can also test your brain with 20 puzzling levels in challenge mode. The single-player portion is fun for a while, but the AI seems extremely intelligent and nearly never miss a shot. It does become slightly tiresome after a while, but the real fun lies within it's multiplayer. I have always found multiplayer the most enjoyable in a Worms game, and it still remains with Worms Revolution. There's three game types available. From Deathmatch, Forts and Classic mode.
Finding cruel ways to torture your online opponents is always a blast. All the weapons we have come to love from the series is back. From the Bazooka, shotgun, grenades etc. There's also some new additions, but I'll let you discover them yourself.
On to the classes, there are four in total. There's the Soldier, which is available in previous titles, the Scout, Scientist and Heavy. You can also customize your classes with a variety of clothing and accessories. From hats,
moustaches, glasses and more.
Worms Revolution is a complete blast. The new physics engine brings something unique to the series, but still keeps the core gameplay intact. Everything that made the series fun is here, along with some new weapons and classes. It's still addictive as the original, and there's no sign of the witty Worms disappearing just yet.
