    A classic multiplayer party game.

    I remember playing the dos version of this game and it being very fun with all my brother taking turns destroying each others worms. All kinds of strategies were possible some requiring more skill than others. My favorit... Read Full Review

    It's simple and it works

    There isn't much to say about worms really. You control a team of four worms and fight against up to three other teams on a variety of wacky battlefield. You can have up to sixteen different teams of worms on one savefil... Read Full Review

    The first in a long line of brilliance.

    This was my first taste of Worms, and as always with the Amiga, Team 17 did themselves proud. At the time it was a completely new concept, Worms destroying each other with a wide variety of weapons both violent and hu... Read Full Review

    Worms may cause health problems

    I have spent many late nights playing Worms with my buddies. My homeboy kept the game close by at all times, so at the end of a party, out come the worms. Kinda like mescal. Everyone had a team saved and the ranks wer... Read Full Review
