Do i really need to give much information here?
No, it's not what comes out yer dogs ♥♥♥♥ or what you get from eating frozen chips. It's Worms!
Probably one of the funnest turn based games i have ever played with a few friends. Controls are a bit annoying at first, and i guarentee a load of misfires! But this is what makes the game better.

Don't get me wrong, the graphics are a bit outdated (especially maybe for the younger audience), it runs in DosBox and runs in a low resolution! But the music is great, the fun gained from this is amazing and for the older players out there, the nostalgia is wonderful.

Seeing you blow up 'Bob' by accident when you fire instead of jump and hearing the snidey remark said by your troubled little worm, is quite possibly one of the most theraputic things i have ever encountered. "Oh Dear!"

If you have NEVER played worms... Go eat a holy hand grenade.
But seriously....(If not on full price, seeing as this game is 20 years old) Get this game!

Come on, Worms surely needs no introduction, right? If you aren't familiar with this game, you're either too young to have had the pleasure of playing it or simply unfortunate enough to never get around to it. Truly a masterpiece of a game for it's time, this is the game that put Team 17 on the map and strengthened their reputation as a company.

Despite it's revolutionary past, Worms hasn't really stood well against the test of time, it hasn't aged very well at all, unlike it's sequel series of games (Worms 2, Worms Armageddon, Worms World Party) which are timeless and still loads of fun to play to this day.
I'd still recommend picking up the original Worms for the nostalgia value, despite DosBox being a nightmare to work with on modern machines. If you are new to the series however, I would advise picking up Worms Armageddon instead, it is vastly superior and has been updated over the course of time to compensate for modern computers.

I played this game for hundreds hours as a kid on our Mac OS 7 computer. Shooting mines into your opponent and watching them instantly fly several hundred yards is a blast!

This is still a fun game but very outdated. This version just runs through dosbox. Love the midi music and terrible 3D videos.
