The worms series started in 1995 and is still going with the most recent game, Worms Revolution. like it’s predecessors, Worms is a turn based 2D shooter (flat side scrolling game) where you play as sentient worms in ant farm like map with various settings and one goal; destroy the enemy team(s). Worms Revolution has a four person local multiplayer that is lots of fun to play with friends. Worms is competitive with up to four teams battling for victory though it stays playful and fun for all. While battling there are tons of weapons to choose from, ranging from the classic rpg (rocket propelled grenade), to little silly things like water balloons. My favorite weapons are the are the bunker buster, turret and of course the rpg but there are the crazy ones like the old lady and the sheep. I have been playing the Worms games with my family since I was just a little kid and this one is my favorite.
Worms Revolution came out in 2012, but the older ones still hold up if you’re interested. There have been many Worms game before this one and weird ones like Worms 3D and Worms Crazy Golf and more. The game has a cartoony art style with great bright colors and detail.
I love the Worms games but most of them are really only fun to play with friends it gets really boring when you play alone, though if you don’t have any friends over to play the game does feature an online option. All of the Worms games are based around violence but all of it is cartoon violence so there’s no blood or gore, making the games good party games for anyone. I recommend this game for people ages 6 and up.
Overall, my final rating for this game is 7.5/10 and I definitely think it’s worth your allowance.
