Worms Forts: Under Siege is a Worms artillery game, which is a subgenre of strategy game.[1] It was designed by Team17. Like the most recent Worms game, it is in complete 3D and showcases new features, such as buildings. While the primary method of victory is to destroy the opposing team, an alternative method is to destroy the opposing Stronghold, the most important building in the game.

Note: The Xbox version is playable on the Xbox 360. The PlayStation 2 version is playable on PlayStation 3 units that have backwards compatibility.

Buildings[edit | edit source]

Stronghold[edit | edit source]

From the Stronghold, the player can slowly build outwards. If the Stronghold is destroyed, the player will lose instantly. The stronghold changes in each map.

Tower[edit | edit source]

The first building that can be constructed. When a player's Worm is atop this structure, it can fire Tier 2 weaponry.

Keep[edit | edit source]

A stronger, more powerful version of the tower. A Worm on this can fire Tier 3 weapons. Requires 2 Victory Locations. It's also displayed on the game's case.

Castle[edit | edit source]

A strong, fortified building. This gives the ability to fire Tier 4 Weapons. Requires 3 Victory Locations.

Citadel[edit | edit source]

An extremely powerful building, almost as strong as the Stronghold itself. Capable of firing the most powerful weapons (Tier 5). Requires 4 Victory Locations.

Hospital[edit | edit source]

A building with twice the longevity of the Tower that allows the option of spawning deceased Worms, with a small amount of health. Requires 2 Victory Locations.

Weapon Factory[edit | edit source]

A small, defenceless building, with half the strength of the Tower. However, it can generate Weapon Crates, making it invaluable in long games. Requires 3 Victory Locations.

Science Lab[edit | edit source]

The Science Lab increases the power of all your weapons by approximately 50% of their original damage each time one is built. Requires 4 Victory Locations

Wonder[edit | edit source]

The Wonder is strong, but defenceless, and is only used as it allows the player who built it to win in two turns (unless it is demolished). Requires 5 Victory Locations. Also, while the player uses the Freeze tool, the Wonder is not affected and remains defenceless.

Lighthouse[edit | edit source]

The lighthouse is used to indirectly connect buildings together during many of the missions. When a wall joins to it, it turns the player's color and another lighthouse lights up nearby which can then bee joined to.

Weapons[edit | edit source]

Worms Forts: Under Siege weapons had to be fired from the forts, but a few could be fired on the ground. The weapons are:

Stories[edit | edit source]

Egyptian: The Egyptian story focuses on a worm called Seth who tries to raise an army of the dead to battle the Pharaoh.

Greek: The Greek story focuses on the war against Troy and a worm called Helen.

Oriental: The Oriental focuses on the Mongol invasions with courses with names beginning with Rise of and Fall of. The last map shows a destroyed Mongol ship - a reference to the tsunami which destroyed the Mongol fleets
