Online needs to be reworked

Great game, I used to play the original on pc. Very similar in regards to that and I love it. The reason I give 4 stars is that online play needs to be completely reworked. As in other comments, you go to play online and you realize you are playing with someone who doesn't even have the game open. Therefore you end up just taking your first turn and waiting indefinitely for the other player to open the app and play. This is a very dumb way to play an online game. If the player is not online at the time, you should not be able to play with them. It should be real time and a time-based turn system, just like the campaign mode.

Team 17, please take this into consideration, I would love to play this game online in real time.

Online play needs reworking / AI challenge is low

Gameplay is fun - if you've played a Worms title before, you know what it'll be like. Probably worth the $0.99 right there, to have it on iPad.

However, once the Campaign is finished, there is little challenge remaining. I have completed the Campaign at 3 stars, and have yet to lose a Quick Match against the AI at the hardest level.

Biggest flaw is online play. Playing against other players should be fun and challenging, but the system doesn't work. I have just one game that's gone beyond one opponent turn, and plenty of others that never made it that far. Where are the people who want to play?


I've been playing this for years now, and it's been consistently buggy from one problem to another. There has been long stretches where my friends and I can't play until an update comes out or we get a newer device. I'm on iPad mini 3 and it will no longer connect to Facebook so I had to create a new account losing all accumulated stats and preferences. Now I search for their user names and it can't find them even when we are right next to each other confirming the validity of the search. Don't spend money on this, it will just lead to a waste of time and added frustration.
