Worms 2: Armageddon $4.99 --> $.99

I don't know how to do that thing where it shows the game's thumbnail and info here (how do you do that?). But Worms 2 is now $.99, here's a link:

I've loved this game for years and this is the third time I've bought it (PC, XBLA, iOS). Hope it's just as fun on my iPad!

Average ratings seem kinda poor.. Whats up with that? Is there something horrible in this game?

Same. Would love to know from anyone who has purchased it already.

Loved the game on the PC though!

I bought this game round about a year ago (if it wasn't, then it seemed like it). There's just something about this that doesn't want me to play it, unlike worms 2 on the psp. Go ahead and purchase it if you want, but IMO probably because I liked the old worms, I didn't enjoy this one. I think it has multiplayer, if it doesn't, then it's the fits one that does.

Well, not sure if it's on sale again, or if it's stayed at $0.99, but I just bought it. The controls take some getting used to, but ultimately they work fine and it's a fun Worms game. Unfortunately, it's damned 700MB in size once decompressed.

It has to be one of the worst games that I have ever bought and the file size is outrageous for this game. The controls are bad too.

I bought it, it's not so bad. the controls are pretty okay, the graphics are nice, over all for a Universal Worms port not a bad deal for 0.99.

Really, that bad? I bought it a couple days ago; reading the reviews on the iTunes store, it seemed most people had problems w/multiplayer, but that was it. Oh well, that's what sales are for...to buy all those apps you were unsure of (today it will be Crow) at full price.

Not at all. The async is a really terrific addition, and once you get used to the controls, it works great, actually. My only (major) gripe is the file size. There's just no justification for a 2D Worms game to be that big. Hell, I don't think the Wii games were this big. It's kind of a ridiculous.
