Worms World Party takes the irascible creatures to the next level — online play. If multiplayer action isn't your clod of dirt, more than 40 single-player missions are included along with the 20 cooperative team missions. New game modes include WormPot, which allows you to select and combine over 30 various modes of play into more than 1,000 possible styles of play, all usable online, in single-player or a mix of both. Multiplayer action accommodates up to six players.
In addition to the multiple modes available, this turn-based strategy game offers a myriad of adjustable play features. Just some of the options include hot seat timing, sudden death, interactivity of objects (none, few, normal, many), length of mine fuses, use of dud mines, artillery mode (worms not allowed to walk), stockpiling, anti-stockpiling, injuries from falling too far and energy reductions. General options include turn and round time, starting energy levels, number of victories required to win each match, worm select mode, random or teleportation placement. In multiplayer, you can choose the number of worms per team, alliances, rosters and even establish team handicaps.
Weapon options include amount of ammunition, damage, delay factors and ease of supply as well as secret weapon availability and user selected special weapons. Nearly 60 weapons, ranging from sheep launchers and earthquakes to shotguns and baseball bats are available. Worms World Party comes with an editor that allows you to create, edit and store a variety of landscapes featuring island and cavern venues as well as an import tool for converting nearly any type of image as a battlefield. ~ Michael L.
