Open up a whole new can of Worms as 2D platform battle meets Tetris-like puzzle action. Worms Blast is an all-new game based on the popular series of turn-based action titles which began with 1995's PC hit Worms. This 2002 release has the player controlling a character who sits in a small boat and shoots away "cell" objects that drop down from above. A variety of wacky specials and power-ups are designed to both confound and delight. Numerous single-player and multiplayer modes are supported.
Earlier Worms titles succeeded not only due to unexpectedly rich and engaging gameplay, but also because of the endearing sense of humor conveyed by the cute little invertebrate heroes. Showcasing the "Worms Universe" like never before, Worms Blast features several newly developed characters who appeared less prominently (often as weapons!) in earlier games, including Calvin the Super Sheep, Ethel the Old Woman, Stavros Skunk, and Rocky the Concrete Donkey. ~ T.J.
