Worms Android App Full Review (HTC Desire S) HD

September 11, 2011

Hi guys and gals, today I’m looking at the brilliant Worms for Android. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

If you’re old like me then you may remember the first ever Worms game. Released fully in 1995  Team17 on the Commodore Amiga. Team17 are a British company which formed in 1990.

Due to its overwhelming popularity it then saw release on a strew of other consoles. In fact, I think Worms has probably been released on EVERY SINGLE PLATFORM EVER…oh apart from the 3DO of course.

Each player starts off with a group of worms and take it in turns to use whichever tools or weapons they have at their disposal to defeat the enemy teams. You move your worms around the randomly generated landscape to find the best position to attack from.

Each weapon has its plus and negative points. Some are affected by weather conditions and others are prone to that thing called gravity. Experienced players soon learn which weapon to use in which circumstance and the winner of the game is the person who has the last worm(s) standing.

I was pleasantly surprised at the high quality of the Android version of the game. The graphics are very crisp, clear and smooth and it has a real ‘solid’ feel to it.

Some of the remarks the worms give you will make you chuckle but you’ll forget about all the laughing when someone unleashes a Granny on you. Yes, the Granny, Sheep and Banana bomb are all present here. In fact, all the main weapons are available in this pocket-sized version of the game.

I found the controls to be very good and responsive. There were quite a few complaints from users on the Market but I think they must just be doing something wrong. I can easily navigate my worms around the landscapes without any issues (other than my own stupidity).

For 59p you can’t really go wrong. It is a shame there is no online play but perhaps this is something Team17 could add in Worms 2…
