This strategy game has plenty of player options that make it appealing to fans of turn-based artillery battle, as long as they can get the hang of the user controls. There are many opportunities in Worms 3 to use strategic moves, such as carefully selecting worm classes with different skills and using different weapons to attack opponents. Battling against another team of quirky worms is, by itself, a unique gaming experience. The card options that allow players to change the start or end of the game adds a fun twist.

On the downside, using the touch controls on a mobile device can be quite difficult and distracting, especially for newer gamers. There’s an arrow pad on the screen to control worm movement, but it can be tough to maintain control while doing so many other things, like keeping an eye on the enemies and selecting, aiming, and firing weapons. The turn-based format helps by giving players some time to act, but this has the potential to become cumbersome. Perhaps the best way around this challenge is to use a D-pad control system with a mobile device, but not all players have this option. But if you can get over the control scheme issues, Worms 3 can be an amusing strategy game to play by yourself or with friends.
