Worms Crazy Golf has hit the iPhone, the iPod touch and, in pure HD quality, the iPad. The completely novel game takes what makes Worms great and revamps it entirely, resulting in a game that offers fun and longevity in equal measures.
The aim of the game is quite simple. Golf. Instead of trying to use a variety of measures like exploding sheep or holy hand grenades to obliterate the opposite team, you are trying to get your ball in a hole. In a Worms twist, however, the courses that you play are tricked out with a number of weird obstacles like exploding sheep.
When you first start playing the game, you almost start to think ‘there must be more to this’. While this may be the same thought that flashes through your head whenever you play real golf, trying to hit a little white ball into a hole using bent sticks, Worms Crazy Golf soon unleashes itself upon your psyche. The humor, the gameplay, the fun. It’s all there and it absolutely packed to the brim. Users of the iPhone and iPod versions get three 18 hole courses to play on and owners of the iPad version get four courses.
If you are looking for something to criticize the game, then there is very little. As you’d expect from a game in the Worms franchise, the graphics are beautiful. The gameplay is a little more measured in terms of sheer funkiness than perhaps other Worms games are, but that doesn’t take away from the experience. One way to simply define the game would be that users would be purchasing a golf game with a Worms twist rather than a Worms game with a golf twist.
