The basic gameplay of Worms hasn’t changed since its debut in the 90s. Well, except for that brief flirtation with 3D in the early 2000s, but let’s pretend that didn’t happen. There’s a new Worms title coming soon, and it’s crafted especially for mobile devices with quick gameplay and a big single-player campaign.

Pocket Gamer has a full hands-on with the iOS version above, which will give you a good idea what to expect from Worms 4. The campaign is composed of short missions with smaller teams of Worms. This is a more mobile-friendly experience as you don’t have to sit down and play a 20 minute match to make any progress. The game will also include faction battles where blue and red players (you pick one side or the other) do battle for bonuses each day.

There are more than 30 wacky weapons at your disposal in Worms 4. That’s always been the hallmark of these games, and that’s not going to change any time soon with the addition of “Halley’s Comet” and others. The game is coming to iOS first in August, and then will expand to other platforms (read: Android) later. When later? They aren’t saying.
