Worms Rumble Review


Posted: 15 months ago, last updated 3 months ago.

Author: @GeekDadGamer and Jo Robertson.


Worms Rumble is a multiplayer game where 32 worm characters try and shoot each other. It takes the usual turn-based Worms formula in a real time direction complete with a battle royale mode like Fortnite.

Although the play is different there’s still the over the top Monty Python-style humour. You play from side on perspective and control your character. You can shoot and hurl yourself at enemies making use of a wide range of classic (and new) weapons from the series. Bazooka, Shotgun, Sheep, Holy Hand-grenade, and Banana Bomb.

The small characters are agile and diminutive which makes for some knife edge tactile battles. You can play all against all in a Deathmatch mode or try and be the final worm in Last Worm Standing and Last Squad Standing variants.

The game will include seasonal events, challenges, and community collaborations as we have seen in games like Roblox and Fortnite.
