Play OverviewPlay Overview

Worms Rumble (2020) is a multiplayer game where 32 worm characters try and shoot each other. It takes the usual turn-based Worms formula in a real-time direction complete with a battle royale mode like Fortnite.

Although the play is different there’s still the over-the-top Monty Python-style humour. You play from side on perspective and control your character. You can shoot and hurl yourself at enemies making use of a wide range of classic (and new) weapons from the series. Bazooka, Shotgun, Sheep, Holy Hand Grenade, and Banana Bomb.

The small characters are agile and diminutive which makes for some knife-edge tactile battles. You can play all against all in a Deathmatch mode or try and be the final worm in Last Worm Standing and Last Squad Standing variants.

The game will include seasonal events, challenges, and community collaborations as we have seen in games like Roblox and Fortnite.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Worms Rumble 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 7 weeks ago.

Rated PEGI 7 for Mild Violence.
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

Skill Level

10+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it’s important for parents and guardians to ensure they understand in-game purchases and have spending limits set-up. It’s a game that skews a little older than the classic Worms games as it’s played in real time. However, because your movement isn’t on the clock like the original, many younger players find this less frustrating.
