Hedgewars: A Worms Clone

Hedgewars

Hedgewars is multiplatform, a free turn-based blast-em-up in the vein of Worms. It features a wide range of weapons, multiple maps, and excellent graphics and audio. Offers single player, multiplayer, and (in theory) multiplayer over the internet modes.

If you’ve ever wondered why there are so many Worm clones and offshoots here’s the reason: Worms is an extremely playable, fun game. Although there are many freeware Worms clones but many of these are DOS games that lag behind in their production qualities (and/or do not readily run on XP/Vista), which is why Hedgewars was such a fantastic find for me personally: it offers excellent graphics and sound and excellent playability and physics.

In contrast to Worms variations such as the brilliant Soldat (which abandoned the turn-based model in favor of real-time gameplay), Hedgewars is a very faithful adaptation that sticks to the turn-based model and recreates most of the original elements, from the wacky range of weaponry to the destructible environment, and even the cartoonish look and feel all the way down the little one-liners that the characters utter at the end of each turn.

Call for testing and translations: 1.0.0 Alpha 1
We are preparing the long-awaited version 1.0.0 and we need you (yes, YOU!) to help us testing.

We release the version 1.0.0 Alpha 1 now!
This is not the official 1.0.0 release yet, just a preview version for testing. Please give feedback! We expect this version to still have some annoying bugs which we need to hammer out before we do the big real release.
How to help us testing
  • Download the Alpha 1
  • Just try to do various things or test out features systematically—the choice is yours!
  • You might want to focus on the new features since those tend to attract bugs the most (see the changelog)
  • Report any bugs you find
  • Get in touch with us in the chat (we help you with any question)
  • Also try online play (you need to find other testers. Again, drop by in our chatroom to coordinate)
String freeze

Translators: If you want to contribute translations, now is the best time to do so!
From now, we declare the string freeze for version 1.0.0. We promise we won't change any texts in the game, until version 1.0.0 is released.
Every translator will appear in the credits.

If you want to learn more about how to translate Hedgewars, see Translations or just ask us in the chat.

Get the Alpha 1 release for Windows here:
Hedgewars-1.0.0-Alpha1.zip  [166.63 Mb]

Latest stable release 0.9.25 for Windows here:
Hedgewars-0.9.25.exe  [168.46 Mb]

If your donkey supports http sources (most do) the download should be pretty fast.

HTTP sources should work with most ed2k clients, but apparently not. I will look into that. I'll start up my mule ;)

By the way remember to look at the dates on the stats you post. This one is just crazy:

Okay, good for you. I can see it worked great for others and if they experience problems I'll gladly help them.

You posted stats that says it's valid until 1970. Do you know what year it is? You don't know how the stats page work and you apparently don't know how a calendar work either. You also have a bit of an attitude problem.
