Exclusive: Team17 opens can of Worms on iPhone

Invertebrate artillery war revealed for the iPhone

Product: Worms | Developer: Team17 | Genre: Adventure, Shooter | Networking: on one device
 
Worms iPhone, thumbnail 1
We all know that iShoot has made Ethan Nicholas richer than God (and about a millionth as rich as Steve Jobs), and we all know that his game was heavily inspired by Team 17’s classic invertebrate artillery game, Worms.

So it's only natural that Team17 is bringing its own original and definitive version to the iPhone.

Attentive readers will know that it first announced the game last year. Many months passed with nary a squeak from the venerable studio, but Team17 has just dropped us a line to reveal these exclusive pictures of Worms playing on an iPhone.

The good news is it looks as though we can expect a classic style of 2D Worms gameplay that makes full use of the touchscreen for controls - including a pinch ‘n’ pull zoom function.

Check out the pictures of iPhone Worms below, then keep your ear to the ground for more news as it comes in. Judging by these screenshots, it won’t be long before it digs its way through the App Store earth.

@Taylor: Why? I would prefer not playing Worms "round robin" style, espcially if its not necessary. Since the iPhone has LAN/WAN connectivity, why should we. Plus, if the Team17 folks setup servers, they could setup games for people across the world to play against each other. That could be entertaining. :)

Surely this latest version of Worms will support handing over the iPhone to another player anyway? Being turn-based, the need for multi- iPhone connectivity will be negated?

PS- I Love this site! :)

Maybe your writers are a bit too young, but iShoot might have been inspired by Worms, but was more likely inspired by a game called Scorched Earth. Wikipedia ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scorched_Earth_(computer_game)
DOS Games Archive: http://www.dosgamesarchive.com/download/game/144

Scorched Earth came out almost 20 years ago and pre-dates worms by quite a few years.

Its kind of sad how older games are being lost to obscurity due to the younger generation not having seen them.

Those are actually a group of ten super worms Team 17 had specially trained to test the new game.
