Main role on Worms Mayhem
In Worms 3D you could win new weapons and sound banks when you've cleared a mission.
In Worms 4: Mayhem, will you be able to win new stuff for your Worms? Like hats and
Yes, as you progress through the game you will be able to purchase previously unavailable items from the shop for you to use in the game. This includes maps, items for customisation, and soundbanks.
Will we be able to use our customised weapons in online games?
Yes you can, now rejoice!!
Was the nine man combo in "Worms 3D Pinball" by John Eggett beaten, especially since
Worms 4: Mayhem is being made?
Alas no. John still holds what seems to be an unbeatable record.
What Wormpot modes will be in W4?
We have retained a lot of the old favourites but also added a few new ones into the mix. There are still plenty of different combinations possible so its not like anyone is going to run out of options quickly.
Are you contented with your work?
From a design point of view I am really happy with the way Worms 4 has turned out, we have addressed all of the issues we wanted to address in some way. From a game point of view, I still have a great time just picking it up and playing around with all the different stuff, I doubt I could ever get bored with it.
Which worms weapon is your favourite?
Well there is one that I like more than any other mainly because of what it does to the worm. I of course always take great enjoyment from dropping dynamite all over the map.
Do you like the improvements of the jetpack/ninja rope?
Have to say yes, even though it is a pain having to carry around the bait.
Will you play the game after it is released?
I will have to, my kids have already challenged me.
What do you think of when you hear: Worms 4: Mayhem?
For some reason I think pyramids.
What's your favourite colour jellybaby?
Having just taken a trip down to the vending machine I have found it to be out of Jelly Babies, they did however have some Fruity Frogs so I performed my test on these. I found the orange Fruity Frog to be to my liking, the green Fruity Frog was my least favourite, and the red and purple Fruit Frogs were somewhere in between. Luther however also liked the orange Fruity Frog as it looked more like a frog than its green counterpart that looked like it had been squashed by an automobile.
Dont you hate pants!?
Without knowing whether you are using the British term or the American term for pants it is very hard to answer this question. However in general I find pants, whether it is the British or American terminology to be extremely useful at covering the lower parts of your body so I could not say that I hate them.
What's that dino pooping in the trailer all about?
He is very scared!
