      Hedgewars vs Worms opinions
      Most users think Hedgewars is a great alternative to Worms.
      In the same turn based balistic strategy genre inspired by Worms. (OpenLieroX by contrast is real-time) High quality graphics, actively maintained, cross-platform network play with an active community, number of play styles extended by lua scripting.
