The battle of the non-arthropod invertebrates that begin way back in 1997 finally reaches its third stage later this year, as Team17 prepares Worms 3 for exclusive iOS deployment.
The beta is over and battle lines have been drawn. They're sort of squiggly. Team17's classic team-based trajectory shooter is now open to everyone on Facebook. Release the sheep!
Spicy Horse's web-based Worms-meets-Mother Goose trajectory shooter Crazy Fairies flies from Facebook to Android, bringing cross-platform multiplayer to the Droid-loving masses.
Team17's battling invertebrates hunger for the blood of a billion Facebook users. The original Lumbricus terrestris-based trajectory shooter is going social, and it craves your beta testing prowess.
Remember Worms? That great old PC action game that's been released and remade quite a few times over the past couple of decades?
After spending the past 17 years trying to kill them it's a lovely change of pace to be able to cuddle them. Team17 has just launched a new line of plushies based on one of the most adorable war game franchises ever, Worms.
Has there been a single format through human history that hasn't seen a port of Worms? Probably not, as the iPhone's "Got Worms" box has now been well and truly ticked.
Even more classic Worms-style gameplay is coming to Xbox Live Arcade with Worms 2: Armageddon, a proper numerical sequel to Team17's 1999 classic turn-based strategy game Worms Armageddon.
Sure, Worms is already out on the PlayStation Store here in North America, but who are we to deny the readership "new" screens of the PlayStation 3 version of Worms.
