This page describes how to play Super Worms. Of course, the best way to learn the game is by trying it yourself, but reading this page will help you know how the controls work and what the items are for.


Super Worms has the following options, which can be chosen from the main menu:
  • Grand Prix: Race against the AI controlled computer opponents on five different tracks (five laps each). You may not be the last to finish any of the tracks, or you will have to try again.
  • Practice: Practice racing on a track and try to set new time records.
  • Match: Race for two players on any track (five laps).
  • Knock-Out: Combination of Match and Battle game, win by either being the first to reach the finish or by hitting your opponent using the available items (only available in the registered version).
  • Battle Game: Fight between two players: use the items to hit your opponent three times to win.
