Worms is a game that I still play today with my friends. It's still fun, exciting, full of laughter and good for a chill afternoon home. If you've never played Worms, then this game is something you have to try. You guide an artilery team on a small map and the target is to defeat the opponent's team. The players take turns and the game can also be played in multiplayer mode, not only in single. Having the last surviving worm is a real war between me and my friends, and considering this game was developed back in 1995, it's impressive to know a game like this lasts for so long.
Worms was an amazingly popular game released for a variety of formats in the mid 90's. If you have never played it, the game simply involves you using a team of worms to destroy the opposition with different weapons.
Being a strategy game you take the game in turns. When it is your turn you get to select a member of your team and must use him to do something, from killing another worm or blowing up part of the scenery to make cover, it all depends on what is going on in the level.
The game modes in Worms are either you against your friends or you against sets of CPU teams. The most amount of Worm teams you can have in a game at any one time are 4 teams, with a few worms in each. The AI is rather hit and miss, sometimes doing truly wondrous shots whilst other times it will happily destroy it's own team.
