Review: Worms Clan Wars

I think that Team 17 needs some help. Some dastardly villain has clearly locked the developer up and abandoned them, because less than a year after releasing the excellent Worms Revolution, the invertebrate-obsessed studio ha...

Team17 to bring back Superfrog with HD PS3 and Vita game

Amiga platformer Superfrog is making a comeback. Rather than get a whole new game that couldn't possibly live up to fans' expectations, Team17 will put its energy into Superfrog HD, which features brand new visuals. No screen...

Review: Worms Revolution photo
Review: Worms Revolution
by Fraser Brown

One cannot help but wonder, after so many years of senseless violence and bloodshed, what is it that makes worms so murderous? I guess that if you lived in the dirt, looked a bit gross, and were so often at the mercy of a trowel or a spade, you'd probably be a bit angry too. 

The endless cycle of wormicide continues in Worms Revolution -- a misnomer if ever I've heard one. Yes, it's pretty much still the same old Worms, but in the best way possible. Honestly, I'm glad. We don't really need another Worms 3D.

Worms Revolution has warring worms and exploding grannies

Worms Revolution is some two weeks away from being released, and Don Keystone is attempting to, for the last time, explain Team17's strategy game to us with his oh-so-seductive voice in a new gameplay video. The 2D game...

Since the mid-'90s, I've been unable to look at the common garden worm without wondering "How many kills does it have?" or "Does it have a shotgun?" I blame Team17 for this entirely; their military-minded, wriggly warriors make these animals seem ferocious.

Unfortunately, my love of these warmongering creatures has diminished over the years. The awkward switch to 3D left nothing but disappointment in its wake, and my interest has yet to be recaptured by the later iterations. My current wormless existence is about to get shook up, however, as original Worms creator Andy Davidson and Team17 have been hard at work making the latest title, Worms Revolution, forward-looking yet still able to inspire a great deal of nostalgia. 

In June, Casey got to take on Davidson himself at a round in Revolution, so I thought I'd check out the title's single-player offerings; there's quite a bit.

Worms Revolution: These tricky worms mean business

Worms Revolution: Think I'll go eat worms

When I'm digging holes in my garden for completely normal and not in the least bit criminal reasons, I often see worms. They are always wearing the latest fashions and spouting hilarious quips. It makes gardening a delight. ...

Drown some worms in Worms Revolution

Worms has always brought out the worst in me. I become a vicious, hateful, overly-competitive, incredibly angry arsehole. I love it. This has followed me through the entire series, even the ones that weren't particularly goo...

Preview: Worms Revolution brings a deluge from the past
by Casey Baker

The history of the Worms franchise is a long and storied one, spanning all the way back to the very early days of gaming. In an interview with Andy Davidson, the main creator of the original Worms game, I was given insight into exactly why the series has been such a lasting success. I also got an extensive hands-on look at the newest iteration being brought forth by Team17 for consoles and PC.

With Andy back on the team for Worms: Revolution and a new 3D engine, this latest title looks to offer fans the same excellent strategic 2D gameplay the series is known for while also appealing to new players with a great, polished look and entertaining water physics that add to the strategy and humor of Worms.

Review: Worms: Battle Islands photo
Review: Worms: Battle Islands
by Destin Legarie

Milking a franchise is one thing, but if you hook a milk machine up to a cow for long enough eventually nothing's going to be left. The cow's going to fall over, die, and the only thing you'll be sucking out are the innards of a rotting carcass. 

This seems to be the route Team 17 has gone with the Worms franchise, but who can blame them?  They keep pumping out the same game with a shiny new name slapped on it and people keep buying the damn thing.  I think we've been playing what's almost the exact same game for fifteen years.  So is Battle Islands worth it?  Maybe.

Team 17: PSPgo's problem was price, not digital content

The PSPgo was a waste of time and space. Objective, scientific, fact. Expensive, restricted, and lacking a library to back up its price, Sony's attempt to produce an "all-digital" handheld didn't work, and Team 17 believes t...
