Worms Revolution is a 2012 2D artillery turn-based tactics game developed and published by Team17 and is part of the Worms series. Like previous games in the series, gameplay is 2D and turn-based, but it is rendered with a new 3D engine. There are both single player and multiplayer modes with up to four players online or local hotseat.
Gameplay follows on the traditional gameplay of the series, in which teams of worms take turns using a variety of weapons and items in order to eliminate the opposing team. The game is now presented in a 2.5D style, with the classic 2D gameplay presented with 3D visuals. New to the game is a stronger emphasis on dynamic physics. Unlike previous games, in which water was limited to the bottom of the stage, there are now several areas throughout the level where pools of water can be found. By blowing up the environment, players can set loose this water and wash away opponents. Being covered will cause worms to slowly drown as opposed to instantly dying, though falling off the bottom of the stage will still cause instant death. New weapons, such as the water pistol, also incorporate these water physics. Certain objects are also affected by physics, with certain abilities such as Telekinesis taking advantage of it.
Another new addition to the series is the inclusion of four different classes: Soldier, Scout, Scientist and Heavy. Soldiers follow the standard template with all-around stats. Scouts can move and jump quicker and fall further before taking damage but have less powerful attacks. Scientists can produce better weapons and equipment and award the other worms on the team a health bonus when their turn comes around. Heavies are slow-moving but have more powerful attacks and can take more damage. The game features options for single-player, multiplayer, and online play. There are also various customization options for changing worm appearances, match rules, weapon loadouts, and stage appearances.
The game received positive reviews upon release, with critics praising its gameplay and customization while criticizing parts of its physics.
