Hedgewars is a strategy game designed for multiplayer competition, both on the same computer or using a network. The production is of course free and we can download it without any trouble from the official website, which does not require any sign up.
On the visual side, you can find some similarities to the Worms 2, with a small difference of the main character – from worm to the lovable hedgehog. When you start gameplay in this drawing place, authors will transferred you to the 2D world without any spectacular visual effects. Ones will appeal the music, then others may hate it in a few minutes.
Ambient sounds are confusingly similar to the original tittle, what allows us to feel the atmosphere of military skirmishes. Retro fun brings the necessity of killing small hedgehogs, belonging to the opponent team. Game authors equipped us in many different ways with arsenal full of classic grenades and rifles to the immortal bazooka. Unfortunately fans of bungee won't find it in Hedgewars, but fortunately the Ninja Rope remained unchanged.
Physics of projectiles remained unchanged. This is just as realistic as in the Worms - still it is affected by the strength of the shot and the wind speed. Of course, through the gameplay we can get many bonus packages! Remember to choose your favorite mode at the beginning of the game from Last Man Standing or Time Challenge. The area on which we move can be either closed or open, because the theme of the background is really wide.
Hedgewars let us fight with the rival among the sand castles on the beach, on a pirate ship, and even in the bathroom, between yellow ducks. The possibility of drawing maps by yourself, and then upload them to the gameplay is a big innovation. It all makes the game addictive with no doubt! Ease of control will provide you a lot of fun - not only for elder but also some younger players. Finding a buddy to play with online takes only a few minutes.
Additionally, there is an option to modify the appearance of hedgehogs - we can pick and change their hairstyle to our liking. In summary, even though there is no denying that Hedgewars were inspired by Worms, it’s not done in annoying way. We can highly recommend this tittle and think that is as a pleasant interlude of today's intricate productions.
