Worms Forts: Under Siege is the second 3D Worms game and the final in the series to be published by Sega. Unlike its predecessor, Worms 3D, no Nintendo GameCube port was created.

The game's PC version was rereleased in early 2013 on online service Good Old Games, although Sega had no involvement with it, instead being published by Team17 themselves, despite the game itself still retaining all mentions of Sega.

Gameplay

Worms Forts builds on the 3D Worms gameplay introduced in Worms 3D, however this time, rather than just dealing with teams of enemy worms, enemies can have buildings ("forts"), which can be used to fire more destructive weaponry. There are two new ways to beat your opponent, either by destroying their stronghold, or by constructing a wonder and have it survive more than two turns.
