Worms Pinball is a modified version of Team 17’s game Addiction Pinball. The PC version was initially released in 1998 and PlayStation port in 2000. While Addiction Pinball had two playable tables: one based on Worms and one on World Rally Fever. The Worms pinball version included only the first one. The PC version used to be only available as part of The Full Wormage Collection or alongside Worms Blast before it was re-released on Steam in 2012.
The gameplay is mostly similar to other pinball games. You control to flippers at the bottom of the playfield.
You launch the metal ball to the top of the table and use flippers to prevent it from falling to the drain. The points are by different targets with the ball. There are five areas: Arctic, Mars, Jungle, Desert, and Hell. The player has to complete different missions and acquire new weapons. For example, you have to glide iconic Worms’ Ship Sheep with flippers. There are three difficulty levels that affect the number of balls available to the player.
The developers claimed to do extensive research to emulate the pinball physics as accurately as possible.
The player can choose from four viewing angles. Most of the sound effect are rehashed from previous Worms games. The table design features a lot of the series characters and significant items.
