We'd like to introduce the game to you all by answering a few key questions:
Q: Can you describe how the intriguing idea of combining Worms and golf came about?

And with the fun, competitive nature of both Worms and golf gameplay, we thought it would work very well in a social multi-player setting. Fortunately, I think our instincts were proven right!
Q: Can you tell us about the game. How does the world of Worms combine with golf?
A: Anyone expecting a straight golf game will be in...

To quote: Another PS3 Game List release, bringing it to v1.9. The idea was to improve application usability, based upon the feedback provided by the users.
The Linux and Mac versions are behind schedule; the OSX lib issue is taking longer than I anticipated (and having a virtualized environment doesn’t speed things up either). Hopefully, they will be released soon.
As usual, feel free to suggest something new, and, if you happen to find any bugs, please report them as well.
