What's New in Version 1.0.2
Crates in the campaign should now have the correct weapons
Love it, but annoyed that it isn
It's great, don't get me wrong, for the money it's great value. But I would like online multi player (like everyone else). And sometimes things seem a little bugged out on my mac book pro. For instance, sometimes the camera is just showing you the most pointless bit of sky or is just over to the side, while the action is happening off screen. Othertimes you select a wepon, but you still have the bazooka selected. None of these things have really made me not like the game, its great fun, and for the money its well worth it.
p.s. I"m writing these complaints about the game in the review, because if you click on the support it just takes you to the team 17 website, and doesn't give you somewhere to submit a bug report. (If I could I would submit this in it's self as a bug).
I was absolutely addicted to worms armageddon on my iphone and ipad, so as soon as I got my Macbook Pro, this was the first purchase that came to mind and I am not disappointed. This is an absolutely hilarious strategy game that every mac user should play. Some have complained about its lack of multiplayer, which is disappointing, but for me it hardly detracts from what is otherwise a brilliant, brilliant game. £7 is an utter bargain for this, download immediately!
Great but…….wheres the welsh voice?!?!?!
Love the game, and i think it has been adapted for the mac very well. i havent experienced any of the glitches other people have had so all good.
I would really appreciate it, if the developers read these, if all of the accents from the original two games could be added. Love the welsh accent but as far as im aware it is not included in this package!
keep up the good work.
