Team 17 has announced Worms Crazy Golf, a typically wacky take on the sport using the classic 2D Worms game, featuring classic Worms staples such as the sheep, old woman, mole, magnets, mines and crazy chain reactions.
The game is set across three 18-hole golf courses plus a diverse range of skill-based challenge modes. The courses feature increasingly puzzling hole design and an array of obstacles, such as castles that teleport your ball and cannons that shoot it across the landscape.
"Who could have known that two of our favourite things would work so well together?” stated Team 17 Head of Design John Dennis, “While probably not an obvious combination, Worms Crazy Golf is an irreverent mash-up of our own turn-based strategy game "Worms" and everyone's favourite turn-based game of ‘hitting little balls with sticks’.”
Dennis added, "We've had a great deal of fun playing the game in multiplayer during development and with four-player social multiplayer support, it has all the hallmarks of the "Worms" brand: the trash-talking, pressure to make the shot, terribly unhelpful ‘advice’ from opponents, and often hilarious consequences when that risky shot that could have won the game goes terribly wrong. If players get half as much enjoyment out of it as we've already had, then we'll be very, very happy."
