Team17 announces Worms 4 for mobile
Thinking back, playing the original Worms on my Grandpa’s PC back in the 90s must be one of my earliest gaming memories. Even today, Worms remains a classic series and, as a sign of the times, Team17 have announced that its new Worms 4 title is designed specifically for mobile devices.
The move over to mobile means that the gameplay has been changed up a little bit, with shorter 3v3 games more suited to a trip home on the bus than a 30 minute 8v8 subterranean war of attrition. Controls have also been tweaked to better suit a touch based environment, as you would expect.
The game now also includes challenges, a single player campaign and some in-game currency. It’s a paid title, so the currency doesn’t appear to get in the way of gameplay and there aren’t any ads to distract from the mayhem.
The core of the game remains the same as ever, with a selection of over 30 weapons to fire at the enemy, ranging from military grade rifles to bizarre animal and fruit based explosives. The multiplayer now takes place online, so you can still battle your friends with your own customized worm army.
The video below from Pocket Gamer should give you a pretty good idea about what Worms 4 is all about.
Worms 4 is incoming to iOS in August, with an Android release stated to follow sometime afterwards.
