Worms Crazy Golf
is a casual, wacky game that focuses on strategy and puzzle-solving in a silly cartoon atmosphere. Do note: it is certainly more reminiscent of other trajectory-based games, like Angry Birds
, rather than any other actual golf games. If you like silly, simple, trajectory-based puzzle games then you will probably find this enjoyable.
To keep things fresh and crazy as you play, different in-level obstacles and utilities (explosive sheep, cannons, teleporters, and such) make appearances in the various levels. There are also unlockable power-ups which you can equip and use to manipulate the movement of the golf ball. Using these things, you will find there are various ways to solve each level.
Besides just beating the par (in strokes), there are also 20 coins and 1 crate to be collected in each level. You collect the items by causing the golf ball to move through them. Everything is cumulative, and you can take as many strokes as you need to collect everything. So with time and patience you can easily collect everything without having to worry about hitting a wall due to skill level. There is also a score threshold to beat on each level, which can be reached by taking crazy shots with a lot of airtime and that cause many explosions and such. There is an achievement for completing all objectives on every course (minus the DLC course).
Of course, there are some minor annoyances inherent in the gameplay. For example, I found it mildly obnoxious that some of the animations couldn’t be skipped; most of them only last a few seconds, but over the course of playing it starts to get old having to wait after every shot before you can take the next one.Worms Crazy Golf
is a very casual game. Once you have access to the power-ups, it’s pretty easy to ace every level with a “hole-in-one.” The pleasure of the game comes from its silly, easy nature, so don’t expect mind-bending puzzles. Anticipate approximately 5 hours of gameplay to “beat” each course; if you want to complete all objectives on each course, then that number will probably rise exponentially. If it sounds like something you would enjoy, get it for a price you are comfortable with and give it a shot.
