Description official descriptions

Worms Forts: Under Siege is a turn-based strategy game where 2 – 4 people battle it out with a team of 4 worms with the help of weapons and forts. Each player takes timed turns bombing, shooting, causing natural and unnatural disasters, punching and blowing up the opponent’s worms. Each worm has a set amount of health and once that health is depleted or the worm drowns that worm is dead.

New to the series is the ability to construct buildings to aid in the fight. Build hospitals to resurrect dead worms, science labs to increase your firepower, strongholds to base your operations in and protect your worms, towers, keeps, castles and citadels to deploy weapons from their tops and weapon factories to produce multiple weapons around them at the start of each turn you take. Along with these typical buildings you can create Wonders which your opponent has two turns to knock down and if they don’t succeed you win. If they in turn build their own you must destroy it to win the game.

Along with the typical Worms-style weapons like the mini gun, bazooka, rocket launcher, earthquake and homing pigeon (a homing missile in the form of a pigeon), you will also have weapons to destroy buildings like the trebuchet, fridge launcher, nuclear strike and the Trojan Donkey (which you get to place where you like and it remains there until it explodes, how long it takes to explode is not known). Some weapons like the Old Women and Rhino can be steered to your desired location upon which they explode on contact, or they can be exploded early by pressing a button.

Throughout the game different crates will fall from the sky or teleport onto the playing field. There are four different types of crates: weapon crates (more powerful weapons); health crates (increase the health of a wounded or sick worm); utility crates, which carry instant utilities such as spy (see contents of all crates on the field), double time (doubling the time for your turn) and double damage (for one turn inflict double the damage); and collectible utilities like freeze (freeze your worms or buildings to protect them from damage for one turn), parachute (so your worm can safely jump from heights), jet pack (to reach distant locations and heights) and repair (to fix damaged buildings).

Single play allows for a quick game, tutorial, campaign, the trials (death match against the CPU) and the viewing gallery, which allows you to view movies you have unlocked in the game by winning matches, see how much of the game you have completed, check out the credits and look through the Fortapedia (a list of buildings available in the game and their descriptions).

As with the other Worms games, in multiplayer you have a plethora of options to choose from to set up a match against other people including allowing the CPU to play. Choose schemes (selection of pre-set weapons and game options), landscapes (the type of playing field – Roman, Egyptian, Samurai and Old World), Fortpot (a slot machine that randomly selects three game options from the many available), game settings (wins required, turn time, etc.), worm health and sudden death settings.
