Have You Played… Hogs of War?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. A long time ago, deep in the cyberyear 2000, came a turn-based multiplayer war game called Hogs of War [Steam page]. It was essentially Worms in 3D, with pigs. But whereas Worms spawned an undying horde of sequels, to the extent that the franchise is now…

Feature: The original, not one of the million sequels

Have You Played… Worms?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Worms feels like a joke now: by my count there have been 23 games in the main series, and that's not including the Facebook version or pinball and mini golf-themed spinoffs. It feels like so much iteration - or milking - glumly undermines…

Hands On: Worms – Clan Wars

Wriggling Woods: Worms Crazy Golf

It all looks very agreeable, although…

Eagle™! Team 17’s Worms™: Crazy Golf

Back in 1937, a man called Andy Davidson came up with an idea. That idea was to copy a game called Artillery, but to put worms™ in it. He took that idea to the visionaries at Team 17, and from then on the world would never be the same again. Since that day there have been over three hundred thousand games based on the Worms™…

The PC’s Influence On Long-Term UK Sales

A Eurogamer story earlier today got RPS a-chatting. Basically, it was the news that the original Rayman actually spent five whole years on the UK Top 40 charts. That's 269 weeks. Worms had a 239 week appearance. Theme Park had 172. Loads of more stuff in the article, always interesting - in terms of what sells lengthily rather than immediately. What the feature doesn't mention…
