Worms3D Report Posted at IGN
9:05 AM | Scott Turner | Comment on this story

A brief report of the upcoming game Worms3D has been posted on gaming website IGN, and gives an overview of what is to be expected from this classic strategy game. Author Kaiser Hwang evaluates the title both in comparison to improvements over the orignal, 2D Worms game and the all new complications thrown into the mix when acheiving a 3D perspective.

Here's a short clipping from IGN's report:

One of the more memorable aspects of the Worms games is the selection of offensive, and defensive tactics/weapons, and expect all of the classics to make a return. Bazookas, grenades, dynamite, air strikes, and even sheep will be available, as will a selection of new and unnamed weapons of destruction. Defensive maneuvers include digging underground, setting up sandbags, and even building forts. Didn't know worms were so mobile, did you?
For those who missed the original Worms, as partially covered in the clip and explained in full detail in the report, Worms was a slightly more complex version of the old 2D artillery games. They featured modifications to trajectory, power, and a variety of weapons fired from your cannon, all with the objective to decimate your opponent trying to do the same. The exception for Worms being, of course, that you have small controllable worms instead of artillery pieces.

With the Mac version currently being developed simultaneously with the PC version, the game is expected to be released for both Mac and PC by its developer Team 17 sometime later this year.

Be sure to read the full preview at IGN for more information on this upcoming title.
