    WORMS2’CD-ROM WIGGLES ONTO RETAIL SHELVES FOR AN UTTERLY ADDICTIVE EXPERIENCE

    Worms Have Personality and Fighting Power in this Cult Classic Game Sequel from MicroProse

    ALAMEDA, CA, January 13, 1998 -- MicroProse, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS:MPRS) announced that the highly anticipated multiplayer strategy arcade game, WORMS2’, is now available in North America. Players of WORMS2 control wiggling warrior worms who wield wacky weapons such as deadly mad cows, sheep and flying bananas in the struggle for domination. The sequel to the highly successful WORMS’, which has sold more than one million copies worldwide to date, WORMS2 blends no-holds-barred action with strategy and sheer fortune.

    Europe is hooked! MicroProse shipped 200,000 units of WORMS2 in Europe over the holidays and has received an overwhelming positive response from the gaming community. European publications, including Ultimate PC, PC Gamer and Gamemaster reviewed the game at 90%+ and Computer Gaming World's counterpart, PC Gaming World, awarded WORMS2 a score of 5 out of 5.

    "Game fans will find WORMS2 to be one of the most addictive games to hit the PC in years," said Derek McLeish, Senior Vice President of MicroProse. "It's fun for all ages, easy to learn and impossible to put down. Never before has there been a game so fun and easy to play over the Internet," said Steve Hand, Director of Product Development of the MicroProse UK studio.

    Game Overview
    WORMS2 puts players in command of a platoon of wily worms inhabiting insanely bizarre, randomly generated terrain that changes each time a new game is played. The player's goal is to utterly obliterate, exterminate and generally make life lethal for their rivals using an assortment of outrageous weapons. Players can face up to six opponents over the Internet, LAN or modem and up to 18 can play in the "hot seat" game. Ultimately, only one wacky worm team will win.

    WORMS2 features 48 weapons to choose from along with a weapons editor that will allow players to invent new and more powerful weapons by combining different weapon elements. In addition, the game boasts an even broader array of hysterically funny cartoon-quality SVGA animations than the original WORMS. Players can customize hundreds of levels with the innovative "graffiti mode." Combined with the explosive stereo sound effects and music tracks (including a programmable jukebox) WORMS2 is an absolutely immersive and wildly comical experience.
