There are many computer games on the market today that make worms the star attraction. These include worms Armageddon, worms 2, worms world party, bookworm MSN games, and one we haven’t talked about yet – effing worms.
The effing worms game is an action video game that features a giant worm that can dig fast tunnels, and sneak up on unsuspecting pedestrians, cops, cows, and many more. The worm eats as many of these people and animals (which look like stick figures) as possible while growing at a rapid rate. The game ends when the worm gets to big to move around.
Effing worms is based off the Death Worm game, which can be found at www.yoyogames.com.
Although effing worms has a 94 percent AG rating, some material may be unsuitable for young children. The game includes a “Teen Caution” rating which means it man contain content and stronger suggestive themes that may or may not be suitable for ages 13 and older, according to the Addictinggames.com website that features information about effing worms.

The Worms Game is a video game that features an arsenal of unique and bizarre weapons along with a platoon of fiesty worms. The game uses a combination of interesting animation and bright landscapes to create a colorful war-like game for all ages. Developed by Team17 Software, Worms Game is a series of turn-based computer games. This means, the flow of the game is partitioned into precise and visible parts called turns or rounds.
Here’s how Worms Games works. Each player in the game controls a small platoon of animated worms. The platoons battle other computer-controlled worms or player controlled worms across a reshapable landscape. Although the game is war-based, the animation is humorous. During the course of the game players take turns choosing their worms and whatever tools and weapons they prefer in order to kill the opponents worms. Once they kill all of the opponents’ worms, they win the game. The worms move about by walking, jumping, bungee jumping, and by using ninja ropes. The players have to think fast because each move is timed. The players can’t waste time thinking, if they do – they are out of the game!
So how do worm’s get killed or die? The worms die when:
·A worm’s health is reduced to zero
·A worm enters the water by falling off the island or through a hole
·A worm is thrown off either side of the arena
Worms Game has more than fifty weapons at the player’s disposal. Many of these weapons are either inside jokes or inspired by popular TV programs and movies. A good example is the Holy Hand Grenade, which was inspired by Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Just a few weapons include:
Holy Hand Grenade
Indian Nuclear Test
