Worms now on Facebook
Like SimCity before it, Worms has joined the ranks of other long, storied PC franchises that have been unable to resist the siren song of Facebook's business model. Replete with all the trappings of the platform (coins, experience stars, "Share" buttons, etc), Worms on Facebook allows for battle between two friends on their choice of two different islands using 19 weapons from the series' past.

Individual Worms can be customized with 40 different hats, and players can create their own islands for their worms to hang out on between warfare, as well as for their friends to visit when they're feeling social. As is the way with these things, there are also tasks to be completed, daily rewards to reap and an immeasurable amount of work and productivity to be distracted from.
