UK-based Mac game publisher Feral Interactive’s conversion of the popular game Worms Blast is done; the game is anticipated for a release later this month (a bit later than it was first expected, if you’re keeping track). To help draw interest to the forthcoming release, Feral is giving Mac users a chance to try out the game with a just-completed demo version, now in distribution.

Based on a long running series that puts you in control of warlike worms intent on blasting each other to bits, Worms Blast is a nematode of a different color: This game is more akin to arcade classics like Bust-A-Move (or the Mac classic Snood) than it is to past Worms titles. In Worms Blast, you must fire your cannon at colored blocks; matching colors destroys them. In true Worms style, however, you’ll also get a chance to use an imaginative array of destructive weaponry, including grenades, dynamite, lasers and a shotgun.
System requirements for Worms Blast call for a G3/333MHz or faster; 64MB RAM; 3D graphics card with 8MB video RAM; and Mac OS 9.1 or higher (or Mac OS 10.1 or higher). Worms Blast is being published and distributed in Europe by Feral Interactive itself, but Feral has a distribution deal with MacPlay for the North American market, so look for Worms Blast where MacPlay games are sold in the States.
Available for download from Macgamefiles.com, the Worms Blast demo measures about 32MB.
