Worms feels like a joke now: by my count there have been 23 games in the main series, and that’s not including the Facebook version or pinball and mini golf-themed spinoffs. It feels like so much iteration – or milking – glumly undermines the simplicity and silliness of the original I loved as a kid.
Over 3,000,000,000 worms have met their fate since the eponymous Worms launched its first turn-based strategy/murderfest iteration in 1995. So say its developers Team 17 anyway, and given the fact there’s been 20-some-odd variations of the banana bomb and kamikaze combo released in the last 21 years, I’m willing to accept that claim as true. This week, the upcoming Worms WMD [official site] peaked its head above the soil-covered parapet for the first time in a while with a new multiplayer trailer.
Aye, it’s worms as you know it. But there’s tanks this time too.
