Video: Wormux on the N900 (Free Game)

December 17, 2009 4 comments

A fan of the game series – WORMS? Have a N900? You’ve got to try Wormux!

This is a free touch/keyboard-combo game to download and it has all the game play aspects of the original Worms franchise.

But instead of worms, you’ve got [15] teams based on open source software (at least that’s what Wikipedia says ) i.e.. Gnu, Tux, PHP, Firefox, OOo, Spip, Pidgin, Snort, Wilber, Konqi, SuSE and Workrave, Thunderbird, Beastie and Nupik.

If you don’t know what they are, it doesn’t matter (I’m only familiar with half of the teams). Just pretend they’re just random animals.

Below is a short 4 minute video just to demo some of the settings, controls, maps and weapons of Wormux for the N900.

It’s a really good game but it does suffer from random lagging. Sometimes the load takes a while or some animations don’t play out properly – other times it’s fine.

Something to try: it is advisable that you restart your N900 after installation – mine performed slightly better (quicker loading).
