Though it often lived in the shadow of Lemmings, Worms is still one of the most widely-loved computer games series of all times.
Now the wriggly rascals come to your Pocket PC in the shape of Worms World party. For the benefit of anyone who hasn't played Worms before, your mission is to control an army of worms in a battle for global domination against other tribes. To do this you have an arsenal of weird and wonderful weapons which you must select with great care in order to outwit your opponent.
Graphically, Worms World Party is very impressive. The characters are cute, the backgrounds are crisp and clear and the voices and sound effects are laugh-out-loud funny. The one thing that lets this PDA version of Worms World Party down over the original is the fact you have to scroll the battlefield a lot working out what's going on. Obviously this needs to be the case with such a small screen size, but nevertheless it does become a little frustrating that you can't see everything on screen at once.
There's plenty in Worms World Party to keep you coming back for more. There are different game modes (vs computer, deathmatch and multiplayer) and you can customize lots of elements of the game, such as controls, time limits, weapons, etc. Best of all, because of the infinite landscape generation in Worms World Party, you'll never play in the same place twice!
Worms World Party is a true classic and it's great to see it ported on the Pocket PC so well.
