The Sega Saturn version of Team 17‘s classic Worms is pretty much identical to the PlayStation version, which is great because that makes it a special game. It makes it a brilliant party game for up to four players.
Passing the pad around, players take it in turns to move little worms around randomly-generated landscapes, trying to kill each other using various weapons, tools and special moves. And if you don’t have anyone to play with, the computer AI can also give you a good game in single-player mode.
Worms has appeared in many forms over the decades, but the Saturn/PlayStation versions are among the very best iterations of the game available and are must-own and must-play titles on those systems. I just happily played Saturn Worms for a couple of hours tonight, to remind myself how good it is. It’s also a great tournament game.
Great controls, decent graphics, landscape deformation, comedy interludes, and basic physics. Worms has all those things.
Worms on the Sega Saturn was first released in 1996 (1997 in Japan).
