Invertebrate combatants once again wage war on home consoles in Worms Forts: Under Siege! As the title may suggest, there is a greater emphasis on defensive tactics in this edition of Team 17's long-running, darkly comical series, as the player's team of up to four worm warriors must develop and protect a heavily fortified base. Available armaments include classics such as boiling oil and bows-and-arrows, as well as cannons, catapults, and ballistae. Battles are set in historically based locations such as ancient Egypt and imperial Rome.
As in the most popular previous versions of Worms, Forts: Under Siege! is turn-based; each team member is given a limited amount of time to act, then must wait as the enemy makes its move. Environments are destructible, so the battlefield can change dramatically with each errant shot. As the game progresses, each team of worms works to build additional fort facilities that offer new skills and abilities, and to capture additional territory that can supply the resources needed to create truly destructive equipment, such as air strikes, napalm, and even nuclear missiles.
Although publication of Worms Forts: Under Siege! was originally announced by the now-defunct Acclaim, it is brought to North America by Sega, another publisher of earlier Worms games. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
