It’s Hedgewars!

Friend of the Reticule Dartt pointed me to this.  I’ve not had time to try out this piece of interesting open sourcestry, but a quick scan of the site reveals that it looks an awful lot like worms, but with some little tweaks.

For a start, your new soldiers are squidgy little hedgehogs, not groady worms.  Seems to be a few new weapons too.

It’s an interesting project, recreating a game we all know and love but tweaking it a little, and some of the new weapons seem particularly kooky.  I think I spied a walking cake bomb in the video, certainly in keeping with its parent game’s aesthetic don’t you think?

Tell you what, Reticuleers!  If you’ve got a bit of spare time, give the old thing a shot and tell us what you think.  I’d do it myself but I don’t want to.

  1. Well considering that Worms was just a rehash of games like Scorched Earth (showing my age here :P) with worms instead of tanks and more cartoony graphics, I don’t really think there is any more to say about this latest incarnation. I’m kind of glad its open source because I sure as hell wouldn’t pay for it.
