The original. Unwieldy, ugly, simple and yet absolutely addictive.

When will I learn that Nostalgia is just not worth it.
Version 1.0 of a good thing is usually quite crap as later versions have improved on it. I spent about $1.50 on this game and I can only think I wasted my money.
Take note that all of the gushing reviews are after 0.1 hrs play and all talk about how it was great in the day.
Don't get me wrong, this version works well and if you REALLY liked the first game it's still the same, but the series got better after his.
AVOID, buy the more up to date versions. Armageddon for eg.

Great soundtrack and good for nostalgia, but hasn't really aged well and I wouldn't buy it for more than a couple of dollars in a sale. Worms: Armageddon is much more playable nowadays

This is how this legendary series started. In 2016, after SO MANY YEARS, this game isn't probably best choice for session with friends. I mean, people loved Worms Armageddon, Worms World Party is my favorite Worms games, new players are probably in love with Worms Reloaded or Revolutions. First Worms game can be only played out of curiousity, how this all started. Older players for sure love first Worms and play it once in a while but nobody else will spend days playing it. It was my first time in two years (and first time on Steam) since I played Worms. Didn't spend much time but had my dose of nostalgia. Team17 had great idea for game and even with using same scheme in every next game (except spin-offs) they are making every next Worms game better and more fun. Old Worms works fine on modern computers and, at least in my case, didn't had any trouble running and playing it.

Thank you Team17 for starting such a great series, (almost) never dissapointing. For many this game is priceless but if you ever played any Worms game and want to see how it all started, grab it at some sale.

Very disappointed that Steam has not managed to get this very basic game working properly. The original Worms is an absolute timeless classic that I have enjoyed playing for nearly 20 years, and I'm not happy that they are selling it on here without it working properly.

Ok, So even though this game has a few bad things such as dumb physics and passwords, but I can overlook that since the game is not only the first worms game, but was also released in 1995 for a single floppy disk. If you are nostolgic(which I am not, I got this in the worms collection) then this is for you!

There are so many versions of Worms out there but the original is the one with---
*Less cartoony graphics - pixel art here instead of smooth cartoons.
*Fewer items - you have a good selection of weapons, but the most exotic items are the exploding sheep and banana bomb - no Holy Hand Grenade, Carpet Bomb or jet pack in this version.
*Less polish - sound effects are fuzzy and the menus are a bit unwieldy.
*Worse AI - computer characters never use ropes, spam the teleport awkwardly, get stuck behind cover and never ever miss with ranged weapons.

But--

Some (me) would say that the original game is superior to 'Worms 2' and every edition since then, most of which are esentially inferior clones or inconsequential tweaks to the sequel. The original is special. Its dated look and feel have aged respectably rather than stagnated (the bright coloured candy canes and bug eyes of Worms 2 look a bit naff today wheras the detailed, carefully-drawn objects here still look wonderful - see the Satan statues straight out of Shadow of the Beast).
The smaller selection of weapons make the game more strategic and engaging, allowing it to retain an element of skill and a rising tension. And this version alone retains a great sense of fun and exploration that the many rehashes seem to replace with cynicism.

Only in the original 'Worms' will you find a huge collection of gorgeous, hand-drawn custom stages that smash into pixels when you play on them, or a lovely, extremely 90's full-length re-mix of the theme tune hidden in the options menus. And only here will your worms shout 'suck on this' in a silly voice before shooting a pair of 'wanted criminals' named Robson and Jerome in the face with an uzi. With their last ounce of strength. On the Statue of Liberty. With a worm's face on it. This version has heart!

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.

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

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!

I loved this game as a kid. The playability is still there but it's a real shame the original audio is not part of the game. The background tracks and worm dialog where a beautiful thing in the original - this version has some cheap knock off audio.

Back in '95 this was one of the games I would play again and again with friends. If you look past the graphics it's still a fun game to play. One of the things I really enjoy about Worms is the music, it has a 80's vibe, stays in your head, love it!

If you were born in the mid 90's then you may have heard of this classic being announced on the PS1. This is a developed version of the PS1 game. I'd totally recommend it for the nostalgia and the design. But mostly the nostalgia. That is if you were born in the 90's. But don't take my word for it. Give it a go!
