Fantastic new game-play modes for this edition including WORMPOT (allows player's access to over 400 different game-styles.)

WormPot is a fast and attractive way of gaining many different ways to play Worms from just a select few scenarios (for example Fortress mode where the worms fight from their own fort at either ends of the landscape). By adding the different modes of play together to create over 400 different combinations. The WormPot as three different reels - each game mode is represented by an icon on these reels, the reels will spin when a button is a hit, they will slow to a stop leaving you with three remaining icons. Add all of these together and you see what attributes your game will have. Players can also select manually which modes to include in their game.
