“Spineless soldiers slither and skirmish in this sly send-up of the strategy genre.”
“Cry ‘Havoc!’ and let slip the worms of war” just might be the rallying cry of Team 17’s offbeat series of strategy games. An impressive, if unexpected, success on the PC and iPhone, the fightin’ fishbait has boldly squirmed to the IFE.
Worms: Armageddon is a fast-paced turn-based strategy game starring a cast of sharp-witted and heavily armed worms. The single-player mode offers 30 missions and 14 training levels for your squishing pleasure. The main objective in these missions is to destroy the opposing army of enemy worms, occasionally completing special objectives along the way.
Comedic sound bites are backed up by quirky level design and an off-the-wall arsenal of 41 zany weapons. Besides the expected grenades and bazookas, the war-mongering worms are able to unleash Sheep Launchers, Baseball Bats, Air Strikes and even Mad Cows.
Don’t let the zaniness fool you, though, Worms: Armageddon is supported by a impressive physics system that forces you to consider wind conditions and ballistics be-fore unleashing assaults.
