There is something incredibly entertaining about video games that allow you to destroy stuff. This is exactly the kind of fun that Worms W.M.D promises. The game was developed and published by Team17, and released in 2017 as an improvement on Worms: Armageddon for the Nintendo Switch.
In a world where 3D graphics are all the rage, not many 2-dimensional video games can hold their own. Worms is an exception in this respect. The video game features beautiful and realistic hand-drawn 2D graphics. You get to appreciate the quality mainly during blow-up scenes when the worm is using a flamethrower or throwing grenades at something. Another aspect of the graphics you might enjoy is the absence of visual delays or glitches, which are commonly seen in other 2D video games.
Worms W.M.D represents a strategy and tactics video game. The story features a team of worms fighting for territory with you controlling their leader. You have access to numerous types of weapons and vehicles, with everything from machine guns to helicopters.
This particular edition features numerous gameplay improvements. There are new game scenes, including the Space theme as well as revamped Mushroom and Tree forts. Another improvement is on weapons available to use on your missions with better versions of originals like the bazooka pie and introduction of new options like the OMG strike. The version also includes three gravestones for you to choose from for comrade burial scenes.
The game is divided into 30 levels increasing in difficulty the higher you go. One great feature you have to look forward to with the higher levels is the ability to build your weapons from the different parts you collected during the game. You can also create new arms by taking those you already have apart and reassembling them.
The game allows you to control the choice of weapon and the subsequent use of them. It is an improvement to the previous version’s limited access to motorized artillery since it enables the worm character to enter and control things like vehicles and helicopters.
Another great aspect of the controls on this game is the fact that both single and multiplayer modes are supported. All these control features can be accessed using handheld Nintendo Switch devices.
Replay Value: 4
Shooting enemies and watching stuff explode never grows old. For this reason alone, Worms W.M.D has great replay value. The multiple challenges and ability to customize weapons is also something that will make you want to play again. However, the single main character setup and linear plot might get boring after a while.
This game seems to have everything going for it from good graphics to engaging controls. The design and gameplay will also make it something that you will enjoy for a very long time. The new features like the worm’s ability to control vehicles will make the game worth your time and money. So if you are looking for the next addition to your artillery game collection, consider Worm W.M.D.
