The year was 1995. Team 17 had just released the first version of their game known only as Worms. An Amiga exclusive, the game didn’t originally take off the way it was planned. Fast forward to 1999 when T17 releases Worms Armageddon, and the series couldn’t be more popular. By the time Worms World Party came out in 2001, everyone was playing the game one way or another. In the last couple years the series has adapted well to it’s solidified place as a classic in the gaming community – multiple re-releases, introductions into virtual arcades (XBL, PSN), and now the move to Android phones.
That’s right, EA has released Worms for Android.
As you can see from the demo video (unofficial gameplay) via XDA user silviantrius above, the game is a pretty solid port. In my short hands on time, everything worked fantastic on the Vibrant: Single player, multiplayer, and all sound/video options were spot on. At $2.99, the purchase seems to be worth it. I’ll be sure to report back in should I experience any problems, so keep your eyes peeled if your not ready to make the commitment yet.
To download EA’s Worms for Android now, just search for “Worms” in the Market. If anyone needs me, I’ll be sharpening my skills with the banana bomb.
