Apple's Brad Cook has recently updated the Apple Games website with a new feature on Feral Interactive's recently-released action/puzzle game, Worms Blast.

The fun-for-the-whole-family puzzle game gets two thumbs up from the Apple writer:

The object of Worms Blast is to fire randomly colored ammunition from a bazooka at a series of colored blocks at the top of the screen. If the color of the ammunition matches the color of the block it strikes, then the block vanishes along with all connecting blocks of the same color. If the colors don't match, though, the block takes on the same hue as the ammunition, along with all the blocks immediately surrounding it.

It sounds simple, but there are many variations on this basic gameplay model that keep you on your toes. During some levels, for example, you might not want to destroy any blocks at all because of the objective involved. When you reach other levels, you may be required to destroy only certain-colored blocks.

Click on the link below to access the website, but pay no mind to the listed system requirements, which erroneously suggest that a full retail version of The Sims is required to play. IMG's sister site MacGameFiles is also hosting the demo; click on the link below to download the 32 meg file.
