Worms! March 3, 2007

Posted by dpcough in Xbox Live Arcade.


Fire off the cannons or whatever the weapons in Worms are! Worms is finally releasing during the week of GDC on March 7, 2007 at 1:00 A.M. PST for 800 Microsoft Points. For the full interview I did with Martyn “Spadge” Brown on the certification issues this game suffered and more click here. Here are the features of the game:

  • A mix of strategy and arcade action that, although simple to understand, contains real depth and massive replayability
  • Turn-based multiplayer action for up to four players locally or over Xbox Live
  • An assortment of game options:
    • Landscape on which to do battle
    • Turn and round times
    • Starting weapon arsenal for each team
  • Three detailed tutorials to introduce the mechanics to first-time players
  • Twenty increasingly difficult single-player challenges
  • Three graphical themes for play
  • A random landscape generator to ensure that no two landscapes are ever the same
  • Twenty-two weapons and utilities to deploy against your enemies
  • Many customizable elements, including what worms and teams are named, what worms say, and which gravestone they have when they die
  • High-definition visuals and many graphical improvements throughout the game
  • Twelve achievements
  • Weekly, monthly and overall leaderboards

Now it is time to complain when the downloadable content releases! That will be the next issue of complaints for Xbox Live Arcade I bet.
