Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Taking a page from the popular Worms series, this well-designed game puts a rocket in your pocket so you can take out other enemy tanks. While the game is enjoyable, however, it doesn't hold up in terms of design against other similar games. The game menu is too clever, for one. Each time you select a menu option, your choice "animates" and flies across the program window. This process takes so long, however, that during testing we got bored. Overall the program window is well designed, with large, easy-to-read buttons. Unlike Worms, there is no voice-over during the action, which we missed. That said, the background music is very entertaining. To play, select a weapon in turn with your opponent, choose the angle of your shot and how powerful you want the shot to be, and the fire away. The simplistic graphics don't necessarily take away from the enjoyment, yet there's no option to play online or over a LAN, just against another player on the same machine in a "hot-seat" situation. If you like Worms, this game may appeal, but it's not at the top of the list.
