    Just came out today! Looks good, but I don't have wifi so I can't download it til I get home. Let us know how it is. Says it has multiplayer but not sure if it is Internet based.

    Cheers!

    downloading now, will post first impressions when i've played it! :) x

    *edit*

    okay, had a play, done a few challenges and here are my thoughts:

    It's a faithful reconstruction of your typical 'Worms' game, I'm not sure which to compare it to exactly, but works well. Once you get used to the controls they work well (touch the worm once to jump, double tap the worm to backflip, touch left and right of the worm to move and drag to aim).

    Navigating round the map is a piece of cake, simply use two fingers to move and use the pinch movement to zoom etc. The ninja rope controls work well, using four arrows to manouver the worm around.

    There are a few bugs still, when you get a text message in-game and then return to the match the sound stops, the sound also stopped randomly at another time, but not quite sure why.

    When multiplayer is introduced it will be great, I just hope they do what they have done on other platforms and introduce internet multiplayer in addition to bluetooth.

    All in all though I'd say it's definately worth purchasing for £2.99! Afterall, it's a complete worms game for just £3. My only real complaint is that the app icon doesn't look as good as the icon in the app store, it doesn't say 'worms' which i suppose doesn't matter as the app title is also present, but it'd be quite nice to have that icon.

    Below are a few screenshots of the game in action!

    Yeah please report back. I really want to buy it but don't want to shell out $4.99 for a few minutes of fun. :(

    I just got it. Make sure you read the directions how to play. Once you get the controls down its awesome!

    Best game on iPhone hands down. I see myself spending way too much time playing this. When multiplayer comes, its going to be simply amazing!

    This is one game I've been looking forward to.

    Well let me tell you it doesn't dissapoint. If you loved the old worms for PC then you will absolutely love this version.

    The sounds are the same funny sounds and the weapons are fun.

    So far I have not run into any issues and my advice... 4.99 is well worth it.

    Entertaining and certainly well priced but I am finding the touchscreen not very responsive. Too often I have to give a second hard prod to get it to respond.

    I don't think that "no sound" bug is limited to this game. This happens to me in ALL games under OS 3.1 beta. Not sure if this happens in 3.0 (I don't remember it happening). Will be getting this now! Cheers!

    Quick Question

    Can someone explain how to use the jetpack? I select it and then I can figure out how to turn it on or move around.

    Select it from the weapons panel, then press fire (bottom right). Hold down either side of the screen to go diagonally up and to that direction. You can then drop grenades or dynamite and other weapons using the drop button that appears or hit fire to cancel the jetpack.

    Watch out for running out of fuel :)

    Gotta admit I'm liking it! I do think that the controls could do with a bit more work. Like others I'm having to poke the screen a few times to get what I want.....still not doing too bad so far! :D

    got this yesterday. its decent but i dont think il end up playing it much. maybe its just not the kinda of game i play on my phone. i usually play games for a quick thrill. not a big long game.

    one thing though, i wish they would have used the voices from the original game. its all the same phrases just rerecorded. should have used the classics.

    I'm liking the ability to play a bit, quit the app for whatever and then come back to it and there is a Resume option. Makes those longer "campaigns" more manageable.

    This is really fun. The Ninja Rope is taking getting used to—I used to be a absolute master at it before.

    Aiming, especially w/ the bazooka is going to need a small learning curve, but it's really really good. I am so happy this is out.
