Description

A sequel to Worms 2, Worms Armageddon expands upon its predecessor by enhancing a few facets of gameplay and including play over the Internet through Team 17's WormNet.

Like the previous Worms installments, the game is an artillery variant. The player give an artillery piece a shot angle and shot power, and try to hit the opponent, taking into account wind effects. The player and the opponent exchange these shots in a turn-based fashion. The game puts the player in command of a team of up to eight worms, which can move around the landscape (one at a time), using many types of weapons to try to dispatch the enemy, from bazookas to mini-guns to exploding sheep. In some situations, the worms can also jump, swing by rope, and descend with a parachute.

The game includes an expansive editor that allows players to customize nearly every aspect of the game. Custom teams can be created, and players are able to edit their special weapons, grave markers, flags, victory fanfares, and voice sets, which can be imported into the game from outer sources. A random terrain generator and a terrain-import system are provided as well. The latter makes it possible to import into the game files in image formats, which the game converts into playable terrains.

Trivia

Like Worms, Worms Armageddon featured a Wormsong, called "Wormsong '98". This time, there is no chorus. Here are its lyrics:

Many moons have passed since the worms went to war. Onwards and upwards, bigger weapons than before. Boggy B took cover, he shivered on patrol. The arms race crazy, simply way out of control.

Then his friend threw it, the latest device. Boggy B went and got it, against all advice - "What the...?" BOOM! His tail was split, and his energy lost. How many more will this dreaded war cost?

Then came the nuke, and the disease tumbling down. If the bug didn't get to you, you'd probably drown. But the worms battled on, through hunger and pain. Living to fight, just to victor again.

And now it's the curtain call, the final onslaught, no better bullet could you possibly have bought. But spare a thought for Boggy and with it his friend. So fight with their honour, and fight until the end!
