Worms 2010 (Also know as just Worms), Is a Turn-Based Artilery game in the Worms series developed by EA Games with license from Team 17 Software for J2ME enabled mobile phones, later versions for Symbian, IOS and Android were released however these differ from the J2ME version. It is the first Worms game developed by EA and is one the many Worms games made for the Java platform (With all not being developed by Team 17), thus may differ in some way from the versions done by Team 17 and can be considered as spin-offs.

The Version for other platforms other than J2ME are the first and last game of worms by EA Games before Team 17 decided to develop the games to these platforms instead.


Screenshot of the Java Version, game may differ due to different versions being released.

Not much is changed from the other games in the Worms series, the player can either play the game with the AI Controlled opponents or Human opponents through Pass and Play, up to 3 Teams can fight each other in the Randomly generated map. However the player can't edit their team either there are no names or the player can select a predefined team, depends of the version.
