The first game in the popular Worms series. Two to four teams command units of heavily armed worms and try to blow up all of the enemy worms. Each worm has 60 seconds to move as far it can, and select and fire a weapon. The worms have bazookas, grenades, cluster bombs, uzis, homing missiles, and they can call in air strikes, among many other lethal attacks. The worms are killed if they run out of hit points or get knocked off of the playing field, such as being blown into the water or lava that surrounds the terrain. Far from being reprehensibly violent, the cute little worms say funny things when they die. It's the kind of cartoon violence that made it so much fun to blow up lemmings or let them splatter after a great fall. An expansion pack called Worms Reinforcements was released, and they were also sold together as Worms and Reinforcements United. There are only two landscapes, and a number of weapons are missing, in the preview demo.
