Background

Worms 3 brings the series into full-blown 3D for the first time ever! In conjunction with a revolutionary, fully deformable 3D landscape technology, it expands the strategic options offered in the previous games into fascinating new directions. Worms 3 will showcase a raft of new gameplay features, while retaining all the familiar chaos of the original titles, complete with bizarre power-ups, loopy weaponry, and crazy cartoon graphics - in both single and multi-player modes.

Gameplay

Worms 3D continues the history of turn based strategy featuring a bizarre and outlandish array of deliciously explosive weaponry, mad animals, crazy speech and laugh-out-loud instances in a full 3-dimensional, fully destructible environment.

In conjunction with a revolutionary, fully deformable 3D landscape technology, it expands the strategic options offered in the previous games into fascinating new directions.

That means caves, cliffs, holes, multiple levels, buildings, ropes, tunnels - all in gorgeous 3D!

Worms 3D also features stunning 3D animation of the Worms themselves, which surpasses anything seen in Worms titles to date, including the FMV sequences seen in previous games!

Worms 3D uses a proprietary, all-new deformable polygon/voxel landscape engine that allows the player to destroy any part or ALL of the landscape, from any direction.

Shoot through the floor, make a hole and shoot at the player below you on a plateau!

Tunnel your way through the hillside! Blast your way through! Watch as the landscape crumbles, sinks and deforms as you use progressively more powerful weapons!

Unlike other engines, the technology allows you to explode any part of the land, create holes, tunnels, cliffs, caves and emulates the way the game played in 2D. We're pretty pleased with it.
