Worms 3-D

Worms … what a long story behind this name. At one time, the appearance of Worms seemed to sum up the whole subgenre – moving it from the weight category of “amateur games” to the category of “games made professionally.”

We are talking, of course, about the “shoot-out” genre, the founder of which was the game, where “on a plane, side cut” are two randomly separated hill of the castle (this was one of the first games in which two players could participate against each other) tried hit each other with gun shots – varying the angle and strength of the shot and making allowance for the wind.

I am not an ardent fan of “Star Wars”, so I apologize for my ignorance in this matter. To avoid mistakes, I will call the warring parties light (for which the Jedi fight) and dark (Dark Vader and others). Continue reading
