Worms 4 Mayhem is going to release for iOS in August, with an Android release stated to follow sometime afterwards.
Developer Team 17 is celebrating its 25th anniversary has tailored Worms 4‘s game play for mobile, with shorter three-versus-three matches and touch-friendly controls.
The game now also includes challenges, a single player campaign and some in-game currency. It’s a paid title, so the currency doesn’t appear to get in the way of gameplay and there aren’t any ads to distract from the mayhem. The move over to mobile means that the gameplay has been changed up a little bit, with shorter 3v3 games more suited to a trip home on the bus than a 30 minute 8v8 subterranean war of attrition. Controls have also been tweaked to better suit a touch based environment, as you would expect.
The game also features challenges, a solo campaign, multiplayer support, and the usual selection of barmy weapons, including various animal launchers and fruit-based explosives.
The core of the game remains the same as ever, with a selection of over 30 weapons to fire at the enemy, ranging from military grade rifles to bizarre animal and fruit based explosives. The multiplayer now takes place online, so you can still battle your friends with your own customized worm army.
Game will initially come for iOS devices later followed by Android ones.
