This is okay-ish, it's simply pinball with Worms theme. The reason why I can't in good conscience recommend that you spend a lot of time on it, is that it's so old by now that it competes against so much better games. You can find better pinball games on your cellphone - for free, with better graphics, and QoL improvements like not having to configure the controls from Windows Explorer (not really a problem, but shows how abandoned the game is).

I'm sure someone will find it enjoyable, but IMO your time is better spent elsewhere. Time has moved on for this game, and so should you.

Basic Pinball at the Most
This game is kind of funny for a bit with the whole worm themed table, however this is the only table and it gets pretty boring after a while. The graphics aren't too great either but you wouldn't expect much out of a pinball game anyway :p
Unless you get this game for less than $1 overall it isn't worth getting.

Ludicrously basic. I mean, it's a functional pinball game, but there are so many better options. Don't pay human money for it.

Short version: 75%
Worms Pinball has a really good table that stood the test of time even by today’s standards, but asking this much money for an old, single-table game is ridiculous.

Long version:
Worms Pinball is a great pinball game with a fun and entertaining table that provides adequate challenge. The pads are responsive, the physics are decent, all the ramps and pits are accessible with just enough practise, and the old-school Worms 1 theme adds the perfect amount of nostalgia factor to make you revisit it from every now and then.

What is atrocious though and makes part of me want to give it a thumbs down, is the price. This one used to be called Addiction Pinball with an additional table (featuring a now-forgotten Team 17 game, ‘World Rally Racing’, an even better table) and cost less on disc at release than this one on Steam now.
If you can grab it in a bundle, do so, but I highly advise against actually purchasing it even at half discount.

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.
