Worms Blast Site Opens
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Team 17 opened their official web site for Worms Blast recently. It provides a lot of information on the game, as well as a number of screen shots of this puzzler in action. Worms Blast is a divergence from the rest of the Worms series, but the UK developer plans to include the same humor and cute graphics that made the original series popular. The game is coming to the Mac thanks to the folks at Feral Interactive.
Worms Blast features over 60 individual missions, a number of game modes, and multiplayer head-to-head battles. For a good description of the gameplay itself, look no further than the web site's introductory page:
Worms Blast takes place on water, which is lucky really as your character only has a boat to get around in. Above you, colored blocks move closer to you every so often. Fortunately you can shoot the blocks to destroy them, however your weapon is color coded and you must hit blocks of the same color as your weapon to destroy them. Hitting a block of a different color from that of your weapon will recolor it (and the surrounding blocks) to the weapon's color. If you destroy a block, blocks of the same color touching the destroyed block will also be destroyed.The multiplayer gameplay in Worms Blast is very similar, except that two players will share a split screen, getting the opportunity to blow each other out of the water as well. Feral has said work is still very early on the Mac port of the title, but they expect something later this spring.
