It's been well over two years since Team17 launched Worms 2: Armageddon in the App Store, and fortunately for fans of the popular game, the developer is now back with a sequel. Developed exclusively for Apple's mobile operating system and available for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, Worms 3 can be downloaded for $4.99 in the App Store. Though the new game is much like other titles in the Worms franchise, Worms 3 comes packed with a number of impressive features. Gamers, for example, are now able to alter the outcome of rounds using strategic cards, and during games it's possible to collect rewards. Individual worms are categorised using a new "Class" system (which includes Heavy, Scientist, Scout, and Classic Soldier), and users can play online in a multiplayer mode of gameplay:
PLAY online with asynchronous multiplayer warfare. Enroll in ranked or friendly matches and show off your prowess. Remember, with asynchronous multiplayer you don’t have to commit to a full session at a time. Take your turn then go beat your friends score in the single-player Bodycount mode! BATTLE in multiplayer Forts or Deathmatch modes and challenge yourself with the increasingly difficult Bodycount single-player game.But that's not all. Worms 3 gamers can also partake in a single-player mode, which includes 27 missions across four major themes (Beech, Spooky, Farmyard, and Sewer), and users can fully customize their squad throughout the app at-large. Finally, a classic arsenal - including six new iOS-exclusive weapons - is at the gamer's disposal in Worms 3, and more minor, additional features include:

- GO LARGE with the fabulous AirPlay feature. Link up to Apple TV and play on one device with up to four players on the big screen. The active player can plot their move secretly on the iOS device while the waiting gamers can witness the move on the TV screen!
