Reviews:

PC Gamer, September 1999

"Addictive fun is the best way to describe MicroProse's Worms Armageddon, a turn-based strategy game that lets as many as four teams of worms go at it using all kinds of warped, hilarious weaponry. A must play for all."

WomenGamers.com by Strider (8/31/99)

"Before you start to play, you should create your own customized team of worms (a team has 8 worms). The customization allows you to name your team, name each individual worm, pick custom sounds for your team, choose a special weapon for your team, and more. Once the game starts, both teams are positioned on the map in various locations. Using the terrain, your weapons, and other utilities, you do your best to kill your opponents worms. Each worm has an energy level, with different weapons inflicting varying levels of damage. Unless you set the initial energy level to something below the default, it will take at least two good shots to kill one worm.

"You have quite a range of weapons at your disposal, from the grenade to the sheep launcher. In fact, you have 31 normal weapons to choose from, as well as 1 of 8 special, extra deadly weapons. In addition to weapons, you have various utilities you can use to help mobilize your army of worms. Some of these utilities include the jetpack, the teleporter, the bungi cord, the parachute, and the ninja rope. Normal worm movements include forward jumping, back flips, and walking. No matter where you start on the map, you can always find a way to move around.

"It's quite easy to blow yourself up, especially with the special weapons, so expect to be your own worst enemy at first. Hint: keep the manual close at hand so you can learn how to use each weapon."

"Wow! This game is so fun, addictive, and easy to play that you'll find yourself disappearing in your computer room for hours on end. The first night you bring this game home, dinner will get cold. It must have taken me twice as long to write this review, because I kept finding myself playing against the computer for just "one more" quick match..."
