takes a step away from its predecessors and attempts to move into the puzzle genre. Gone are the turn based Deathmatch games that bought the franchise its fame. Instead, this title relies on a deeper one-player puzzle experience.
In this version, you choose a recognizable character (like the worm, flying sheep, old woman, etc.) and take them on a tour of an imaginary world via different puzzle-based levels. They will challenge your skills from the previous games, but this time around there is a sort of Bust-A-Move feel towards it all.
A few of the weapons have made a comeback, including the all-important bazooka, which fires a multitude of colored missiles. These missiles, depending on their color, will react with already stationary blocks in the levels, and if you match a missile with its likewise colored block, they will all disappear, leading to some various gameplay implementations. The shotgun has also made its way into this version, and is included in levels that test your marksmanship.
It can be seen that puzzles are the mainstay of Worms Blast, but a Versus mode is also present, rounding out the gameplay a bit. In Versus, you utilize the colored blocks and missiles as two players try to wear down their respective set of blocks before they are crushed or lose all of their life. Familiar power-ups will be seen here, adding a competitive edge to the Multiplayer mode.
