    Review HedgeWars

    Worms are one of the most important games in history. Not only is the number of variants of the original title that we have found enormous, but many others are inspired by it. This is the case of Hedgewars, a title that we will analyze below but that has a lot of points in common with the Worms' lifetime, with a similar competition method.

    However, Hedgewars is different from Worms because, in this case, the main characters are not worms, as in the first title, but hedgehogs, giving it a touch of its own to avoid so much confusion. For the rest, the objectives are similar since we have to try to finish the games by defeating each member of the opposing troops.

    Of course, that may sound simple, but the truth is that it is not, because if you want to succeed, you will have to sharpen your aim as much as possible, and the important thing is that you learn to know the parabolas that the projectiles perform. Physics then becomes one of the undoubtedly distinctive elements of Hedgewars, considering that it is unique and that until we understand it, it will be difficult to beat the rivals.

    Something undoubtedly attractive about Hedgewars, which is fundamental for this type of game, has to do with the wide variety of scenarios that are part of the title, an accumulation of animated scenarios that, in many cases, develop randomly. This means that it is tough to find yourself in front of the same scenario in a short period, contributing to the non-repetition of the fun, something undoubtedly positive.

    Hedgewars then includes three game modes that are well differentiated from each other. On the one hand, we have the classic One player in which we will have to face the machine's artificial intelligence, which does not require any connection. We also have a Multiplayer Mode in the network, another usual, but also to enjoy the title in Multiplayer without needing to be connected to a network, but with those around us.

    You have to keep in mind that in the case of the Multiplayer Mode , Hedgewars will allow you to face up to seven people, that is to say, eight in total with you, so it is a more generous proposal than in other similar games or games of the same style. And an important tip we give you: beware of friendly fire because a companion's shot can also damage you, so you better be attentive.

    As you lead your hedgehog battalion and manage to cause enough damage to the other teams, you will get all kinds of gains and improve your weapons' destructive capacity, which is essential in this situation. We have approximately 50 weapons at our disposal, all of which have different characteristics, so you'll have to analyze very well which one to use in each case.

    As we reach the end of this analysis, we also wanted to mention that although some of the contents and menus of Hedgewars are translated into other languages, we should not rely too much on this translation because it is full of errors. Certain words remain in English, and you feel that a virtual translator has been used. It is not a severe problem, but it could be solved.

    The graphics of Hedgewars, together with its user interface, we can say that we liked them a lot, taking into account that they maintain something fundamental, which is a spirit of its own that distinguishes it from any other similar title beyond the obvious inspiration in Worms. The icons that indicate some of the functions or elements of the game are well done, and undoubtedly its aesthetics is one of its strong points.

    What we liked most about Hedgewars is that from a game known worldwide as Worms, they have developed another fun title, with elements in common but different ones that result in an excellent entertainment alternative. Also, deciding if we want to face the artificial intelligence of the system or other users is a point in favor.

    The negative aspects of Hedgewars that we have seen in our experience of use are relatively minimal, which is why we are going to stop at the only one that should be solved as soon as possible by its developers: the translation. It is so poorly finished that, at times, the idea remains that it would be even easier to understand all the contents and functions in English than in this mix of languages they offer.

    In summary, we can conclude that Hedgewars is a game that must be installed and tried on their computers by all those who, at some point, have been entertained with Worms, as the level of fun is similar. And although the elements in common are enough to find a common thread between the two, other novel elements converge in a beautiful proposal.
