What the heck is WormBlast?

In WormBlast, a total of 8 worms (1-2 human players) are trying to gain as high score as possible by shooting at other worms and collecting different objects like body pieces that have been cut off. New guns and ammunition can be collected as well. The game area is scrolling and has no boundaries. The worm with the highest score wins.

Actually WormBlast is a decent remake of Parawormer 2 (MS DOS) dating back to 1998 and it has been serving as a learning project and a test bench for different technologies.

WormBlast is currently being developed on Ubuntu 10.10.
