Worms 3 Review (ASUS Transformer Pad TF103C): Return of a Classic, With a Few Add-Ons and a Few Flaws
Worms 3 has been available on Android for less than 2 months now and it’s quite an enjoyable experience. It’s priced at $5 and if it weren’t for the bugs, it would be even more enjoyable. The game comes from Team 17, the ones who actually made the entire Worms series.
I tested the game on the ASUS Transformer Pad TF103C slate and you should know that although this is a remake, it also has some add-ons. Those includes cards that give you advantages, like changing the gravity in a level and increasing fire damage for example. There are 41 cards that you can get by spending the currency in the game. Worms 3 is still a turn based strategy game, but its controls take a while to get used to.
There are also Worms classes included now, like Heavy, Scientist, Scout or Soldier. We’ve still got the classical weapons, like rocket launcher, two types of grenades, missiles, air strike and the usual karate moves and such. There’s asynchronous multiplayer included, where you send your moves to the opponent and they send their moves to you. Sadly, the game tends to lose connection fas and also experiences crashes every once in a while.
There’s also a D pad mechanism as a control system, that is not exactly comfy. We’ve also got cooky new weapons like the Nora Virus or the old Woman. Worms are still funny, with their taunting and their funky outfits, hats and glasses. We give this game a 7.5 out of 10 and you can download it here.
