I’m sure many Atari Falcon owners are enjoying themselves right now, since Worms has been ported to their platform! It was ported from Macintosh by the demoscener Insane/TSCC. He received permission from Team 17 to do this and you can see the result in a video later in this post. I’m not into Atari’s and have little knowledge about these systems, but it looks like it might require a 060. Please correct me if I’m wrong.
It’s worth mentioning that the port requires the original data files. You can get the correct version of the game (Mac version) from here (it’s abandonware):
Here is the readme from the game to give you some more information concerning the release:

It’s great to see Worms finding its way to another platform. Remember playing it on the Amiga back in the days, but it’s ages since I last gave it a go.
Thanks for visiting my blog and hope to see you soon in another post! 🙂
