Review by DylanBatesFilms

Just like the classic game! - I have been looking for a mac version of Worms for an extremely long time. And when I found it on the appstore it did not dissapoint. Worms is a classic game that will give you many memories. Graphic style: 10/10 (They did some awesome updates from the old versions of worms) Gameplay: 10/10 Everything is extremely easy to remember when it comes to controls and when you don't remember you can always remap it to the way you want :) SFX: 20/10 This particular are in this game was extremely well done. From the voices of the worms, to the big bang from the bazooka everything is absaloutly amazing. Campaign: 10/10 The campaign is extremely fun and since you gain points from doing the campaign it keeps you going so that you can buy the next big weapon or hat etc. Overall this game is highly reccommended for you to buy, you will not regret it :) Thank you Team 17 :D

Full of Bugs ... Please Update the Game! - Worms is a great game, but with this version I have a lot of trouble! The controls often times respond so late that I think they don't work at all. A minute later my worm soldier starts then acting out all the buttons I tried to use and ruinig my turn. It's so bad I thinking of asking for a refund but I would rather see an update that fixes these issues. Vote up if you feel the same way.

It's always fun to play in between classes! - A friend and I always play this game when we have free time on campus. It's really addicting. The only thing that could make this better is to have Online games. Local, and Worldwide games...possible future features? I think so.

Review by C2mind

Great Game! - Love the game. Only things left to be desired, in my opinion, are the ability to play in a window rather than only full screen, or at least to be able to switch to a new desktop so that you don't have to quit the game if you ever want to go to a different application. Would also love to have the weapon shortcut keys back again, and of course multiplayer would be sweet. The game is loads of fun though; great to be able to play on Mac.

Version 1.0.2
Review by El Pared

Pretty good - I've been a Worms fan since Worms 2 for PC, and this game is almost comparable (though nothing will match Armageddon it seems). While I like a lot of the new features like persistent fire, Buffalo of Lies instead of Mad Cows, and the laser sighted shotgun, there are a few things it's missing that I think would make it better when compared to the other computer titles (some of these would be nice for the DS, and iOS versions too) 1. The older games had 8 worm teams, this game, and the portable versions, only allow 4. I undestand this limitation for portables, but on a computer you should get the full 8 worm team. 2. I miss my weapon shortcuts. in previous games you could select weapons by pressing, for example, f1 to get the bazooka family (bazooka, grenade, cluster bomb, etc.) f2 for the shotgun family and so on. Please bring this back, it would make the games where you have short time limits a lot more manageable. 3. The jetpack's fuel does not last long enough. Even in the portable versions it lasts almost twice as long. Currently it is almost useless, please fix this guys, seriously. Great game in light of those things. I've long awaited a Worms game for Mac, and while this isn't perfect, it's certainly worth the $10 price tag

Review by Anthony Marciano

Great developer A++ would download again. - I'm glad to see this game still receives updates. One thing I would like to see for Lion is more full screen support. This way i don't have to quit the game to view something on a different desktop (iTunes, Chrome etc..) This game is almost perfect. It has that great classic worms fun with a few tweaks to make the items more balanced. Great having high quality worms upgraded from N64 graphics. It would be great is LAN support for multiple computers as crowding around a laptop is not quite ideal for more than 2 people. Also it really bothers me that you're stuck in full screen mode while the game is launched. That means if I want to get into iTunes or Chrome I have to quit my current game. Thats a big no no
