THQ Wireless, a leading publisher of mobile games, announces that the latest title in the world-renowned ‘Worms’ series – Worms Golf – is now available from the major networks for all Java-enabled handsets. Under the terms of a worldwide exclusive licensing agreement with Team 17 (creators of Worms), the first Worms mobile game from THQ Wireless was launched in 2002. Last year, Worms was the fastest selling new game on the Vodafone Live! Service.
Worms Golf takes the notorious Worms away from their normal combat zone and sets them down in the soon to be destroyed tranquillity of a golf course. The Worms are armed with grenades to replace the traditional golf ball. Enemy Worms are tied to the flag at each hole, and players must aim to get their ‘grenade ball’ into the hole in the smallest number of shots to annihilate their quaking opponents.
James Scalpello, marketing manager at THQ Wireless: “Worms must be one of the best-known brands in the world of gaming. Over eight million copies of Worms have been sold worldwide, and we had a great response to the launch of our first Worms-based game. Worms Golf brings together the fun of crazy golf with the blast-em up traditions of the Worms to deliver a unique arcade style sports action game.”
