Only Worms™ Pinball offers an action packed pinball simulation of pure wormage! Worms™ Pinball leaves nothing to the imagination.

At some point in time, Worms reached the stage all games starring anthropomorphic characters do: the casual/sports spin-off period. Or at least Team17 seems to have thought it reached that point, because over the years they have been releasing various games in the Worms series which are not in fact anything like the core Worms games. Among these is Worms Pinball, which as the title would have you believe, is a pinball game themed around the characters and themes of franchise.

I don't feel I need to explain how to actually play pinball (that should be common knowledge), as the real question is "is this a GOOD pinball game?" The answer to that is, maybe when it was originally released, but not anymore. In the over a decade long span between then and now, digital pinball has improved exponentially and left Worms in a painfully dated time capsule of what pinball games used to be like. The laughable physics, inhibiting camera angles, and single table to play on are typical of the time it was released, but now that isn't anywhere near good enough.

If it was drastically cheaper, there is a small part of me that would recommend this to huge Worms fans as a mildly amusing novelty, but at its current price it feels like an insult. With so many other, far better pinball games to choose from (Pinball FX2 and Pinball Arcade come to mind), there is no reason to so much as glance at Worms Pinball. As far as Worms goes, this is one game that should have stayed in the ground.

Not worth it! Not memorable! NOT anything...
A bad idea turned into a bad game...
Just ignore it and let it rest in peace!

Worms Pinball is only one table. It's a good table and I had fun playing it, but the fact still stands that it's only one. It's a pretty bare-bones game outside of that one table, too. There aren't many options, and nothing tells you the controls (Enter to launch the ball, Shift keys for the flippers - pretty decent pinball controls, actually). It plays well enough for pinball, and it's fun for a little while. The different modes and events are neat, and I never ran into any slowdown or crashes or other such issues. I could waste an hour or two playing this quite contently. But the fact that it's $8 by itself is ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. You can download Pinball FX2 right now on Steam for $0 and get one table for FREE. That table has online leaderboards, it'll tell you your controls, you can use a controller, and it has multiple camera angles, AND you can get extra tables for $3 for one or $10 for four. Worms Pinball would be fairly priced at a dollar or two. But $8 is ludicrous. If you can get it for a buck in a bundle, I can recommend it.

tl;dr Worms Pinball plays well, only has a single table, is $8, get Pinball FX2 instead.

Outdated. Poor resolution and physics. Buy any other pinball game, if you want pinball. Preferably one from the past 10 years or so.

The game is too old to be purchased now, even at this high price.
It contains only 1 table but with different animations that you can choose at start. This doesn't change much but some minigames and events that you can play while bashing your shift keys.
Also, the keyboard buttons are not shown anywhere, if you never played any pinball game you need to check every single button of your keyboard.

This game was made for people that wanted to play a new pinball game other than the free pinball from Windows XP.
