A few days ago I reviewd WarMUX, a free and open-source Worms-like game for Linux. Today I’ll take a look to Hedgewars, another free Worms clone with funny characters, good playability and support for online multiplayer.
First of all, Hedgewars resembles the original Worms game more accurately than WarMUX, and I’m not referring to playability, which is great for both, but only to the way weapons and characters look like, and also to the in-game configuration and sounds. Here’s how the last Hedgewars release, 0.9.14.1, looks like:
The game highlight features:
- single player and multiplayer (online or LAN)
- bundled map pack
- wide range of weapons to choose from
- in-game fun sounds and in-game music (several entertaining soundtracks)
- possibility to configure teams, weapon settings, fullscreen/windowed mode
