    Hello and welcome to the Worms FAQ. Within this document I will tell you just
    about all there is to this game, from how to get the most out of the weapons, 
    hints and tips for your team and all the menu options explained.
    
    This game is probably one of my favourites, it's so simple and easy to play
    with just about anyone, and is so much fun. I keep coming back to this game
    every so often for another blast, and with all the different options and 
    tactics you can use, it never gets old, and there is always room for
    improvement.

                                 --------------------
    ===============================================================================
    
    This section is just a look over all things in the game, such as how to play
    it and the controls.
    
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
     2.01. Basics
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    ------
    Basics
    ------
    
    The goal of Worms is the kill all the other teams of worms. To do this, you
    use a range of weapons all with different effects, so you use different weapons
    for different situations. Depending on the game settings, some weapons you can
    only use a limited amount of times so making the most out of what you have
    got is important. Up to four teams, computer or friend controlled, can play
    at one time with each team consisting of four worms.
    
    The game is set in turns, where only one worm plays his turn, then goes to
    another team's worm, and so on. In a turn you can use a weapon and move
    around the landscape, such as walking or jumping. Note that you have a certain
    amount of time to make your move, otherwise if will go to the next team for
    their turn.
    
    Each worm has an energy level, which decreases when the worm has been injured.
    Injury occurs when they are hit by a weapon, fall from a height, or a next to
    a worm when they die. When the worms health goes to 0, they die. Before doing
    so they explode a little and injure any worms that are nearby. Other ways of
    dying include going out of the play area to the left or right, or into the
    sea at the bottom of the level. When the worm dies the worm is removed from
    the game. The last team of worms that remains alive wins.
    
    
    ----------
    Extra Time
    ----------
    
    Each battle has a time period, and when that time is up the match goes into
    extra time. All the remaining worm's health goes down to 1, and the sea slowly
    increases in height swallowing the land up. This means that even a slight hit
    will kill the remaining worms, and after a while the entire level will be
    swallowed by the water. Extra Time can be turned on or off in the options menu.
    
    
    ----------------
    Ending your turn
    ----------------
    
    There are several ways that your turn can be ended. The two most common are
    using a weapon, and the turn time running out. The other ways are if you are
    injured, eg. stepping on a landmine, dying by falling into water or off the
    screen, or falling from a height. When you turn ends, it automatically goes
    to the next team.
    
    
    -------------
    Weapon Crates
    -------------
    
    During the match, yellow crates will be parachuted into the level. Within these
    crates are weapons that are collectable. To collect it, simply walk into the
    crate; this will not end your go, so you can collect the weapon or item then
    use it within that very same turn. You can also blow the crates up, which
    is a great tactic if there are any worms nearby as they deal a high amount
    of damage, and it would also mean that other teams cannot collect their
    contents.
    
    
    ---------
    Landmines
    ---------
    
    Landmines are what they say on the tin. There are randomly placed into the
    level, and when a worm goes near one they explode, injuring the nearby worms
    and  destroying a small part of the scenery. Worms can also place landmines
    onto the level, providing they have any left on them as a weapin. You can turn
    the amount of random landmines there are in the games options.
    
    
    ----
    Wind
    ----
    
    There is wind that is ever changing during the match. The winds direction and
    power can be found at the bottom right of the screen. The wind affects certain
    weapons, such as the bazooka so must be taken into account when playing.
    
    
    ----------
    Landscapes
    ----------
    
    There are different landscapes you can play in. There are different types,
    which have different characteristics such as colours and structures. The levels
    are random thanks to the landscape generator. More details on the landscapes
    can be seen in section 6.

    1 - A nice logo of Worms. Big and red.
    
    2 - This is the bottom panel and shows details of the wind and power of the
        weapon being used. The top is the wind, and has two bars, showing what
        direction the wind is and how powerful it is. The one below that is the
        power bar, and shows the power of the shot.
    
    3 - The area of play.
    
    4 - Each teams overall health, which starts at 100%. It decreases when a worm
        gets injured. For example if a worm dies, it will go down to 75%.
    
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
     2.02. Controls
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    This is the default control setting -
    
    Control Method A - Jump           = Triangle
                       Fire           = X
                       Tracking Mode  = Circle
                       Screen Modes   = Square
    
    To change the setting, you have to go to the Worm Options menu, go to the
    control method that is just above EXIT. The other controls you can play the
    game in are -
    
    
    Control Method B - Jump           = X
                       Fire           = Square
                       Tracking Mode  = Triangle
                       Screen Modes   = Circle
    
    Control Method C - Jump           = X
                       Fire           = Circle
                       Tracking Mode  = Square
                       Screen Modes   = Triangle
    
    These are controls which apply to all the control methods and don't change.
    
    Movement             = Left and right on the D-Pad
    Aiming               = Up and Down on the D-Pad
    Pause                = Start
    Weapon Selection     = Select
    Change weapon timer  = L1
    Change weapon bounce = R1
    
    
    Fire
    ----
    Makes the worm use his weapon. Each weapon has different uses and effects.
    Holding on fire with some weapons builds up its strength, so it might go
    further for example.
    
    
    Jump
    ----
    Makes the worm jump. The worm will not jump far, and just where it is facing.
    To go around the landscape easier, use something like a teleport or ninja
    rope.
    
    
    Tracking Mode
    -------------
    Pressing this centres the view on the worm or action (like a missile). Double
    pressing this toggles the tracking mode on or off.
    
    
    Screen Modes
    ------------
    Double pressing this button means that the view zooms out to the landscape.
    Holding this button on allows a free view, so holding and pressing buttons
    on the D-Pad means you can look around the landscape.
    
    
    Movement
    --------
    Pressing left or right on the D-Pad moves the worm around the landscape. Its
    a slow movement this way, and he will stop when he approaches something.
    
    
    Aiming
    ------
    Pressing up or down in the D-Pad aims the weapon cross-hair up or down. 
    Remember that if some landscape gets in the way of your aim your fire is not 
    gonna go far.
    
    
    Pause
    -----
    Pressing START pauses the game. On the screen then appears PAUSED, and in the
    bottom left corner is the worms name, and in the bottom right corner is the
    levels code that you put into the landscape generator. Also, pressing SELECT
    here brings up the Quit Options, where you can go straight to Extra Time,
    Draw the round, go back to the main menu or resume the game.
    
    
    Weapon Selection
    ----------------
    Pressing SELECT during play makes the Weapon Selection bar appear. Pressing
    SELECT again brings up the second selection. Pressing it again takes it back
    to the first selection.
    
    
    Change weapon timer
    -------------------
    With the grenade based weapons (the Grenade, Cluster Bomb and Banana Bomb) they
    have a timer before they go off. By pressing L1 you can change this timer from
    1 to 5 seconds.
    
    
    Change weapon bounce
    --------------------
    With the grenade based weapons (the Grenade, Cluster Bomb and Banana Bomb) you
    can change the bounce power, from Minimum to Maximum. Pressing R1 changes it.

                                  -------------------
    ===============================================================================
    
    When you boot up the game, after the Ocean and introductory videos, the main
    menu will appear. Use the D-Pad to move the curser about the screen, and X
    to select an option. Here is everything explained.
    
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
     3.01. Play Game
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Here is where you go to play the game. You will presented with a league table
    of the teams. Underneath there is DOWN / UP, where you can view the other half
    of the league, LEAGUE / FRIENDLY where you decide what sort of match you want
    to play (League means that the results will be updated onto the league, and
    Friendly is a friendly match where the results don't update onto the league).
    EXIT goes back onto the main menu. 
    
    To play a game, select the teams you want to play. Hover the curser over the
    teams name and press X to select it (it will then be in white). When at least
    two teams have been selected, START will appear at the bottom between LEAGUE
    and EXIT. Up to four teams can play in one match. Remember that you can use
    teams from both the bottom and top half of the league. When you are done,
    selecting START will begin the game.

    League
    ------
    
    Here is a diagram of the league when you first play the game -
    
                          TEAM              P  W  F  A  D
    
                          1 UP              0  0  0  0  0

    TEAM           - The teams that you play with. You can create you own teams, 
                     but they will have to overwrite some existing ones. They are
                     crap anyways, so don't feel any guilt. ;) For more details on
                     how to create your own team go to sub-section 3.02. which is
                     the bit after this one.
    P (Played)     - How many matches your team has played.
    W (Won)        - How many times your team has won a match. This is the deciding
                     factor in the league standings, so the more you win the better
                     position in the league you will get.
    F (For)        - When you kill a worm on another other team, you gain a point
                     here.
    A (Against)    - When one of the worms on your team dies, you get a point here.
    D (Difference) - This is For - Against, and says how you are doing overall on
                     you killing and keeping worm accounts. For example, if you
                     have killed 10 worms (10 in F) but 3 of yours have died (3 in
                     A) then the difference is 7 (7 in D).
    
    To get higher positions in the league you have to win more matches, plain and
    simple. It two teams have the same amount of Wins, then it goes to the
    difference to decide. The team with the higher difference goes ahead of that
    team.
    
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
     3.02. Team Entry
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    This is where you can create your own team, or edit existing ones. At the top
    is the TEAM NAME, selecting this with your curser allows you to rename it.
    To rename press up or down on the D-Pad to change the letter, and left and
    right changes the character you want to edit. When you are done, pressing X
    will take you to renaming the CAPTAIN worm, then WORMS 2 to 4. You edit their
    names in the same way you did the team name. When you press X after editing
    WORM 4, the renaming ends and you take control your curser again.
    
    Between the team name and the worms, you decide who the team is controlled by
    and their energy. For controlling, you have a choice of HUMAN, CPU GOOD, CPU
    OK and CPU POOR. Selecting HUMAN means that a person can play with this team
    only, and selecting CPU means only the computer plays with this team. The
    difficulty changes, so that GOOD is the teams difficulty is hard, OK is normal
    and POOR is easy. Makes sense, eh? Energy is each worm's energy that it starts
    with. You can have it from 75, to 500 in 25 incensements. Pressing X increases
    the energy amount, and triangle decreases the amount. It is probably best for
    all teams to have about the same energy so that the playing is fair. Or, if
    you would like a challenge, how about creating three teams of 500 energy
    set on CPU good against you of 100? Could prove interesting. ;)
    
    In the bottom left hand corner is NEXT and LAST, which switches the team so
    you can view and edit another team. CLEAR deletes all the teams information,
    so be sure that you want to delete all the info before doing so, and EXIT
    returns you to the main menu.
    
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
     3.03. Worm Options
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    This is the main options of the game, where you can change just about every
    thing in the game here to make it more customised.
    
    
    Game Options
    ------------
    These are options that will affect the gameplay of Worms. Pressing X on the
    item changes the amount, and triangle puts it back.
    
    Rounds to Win the Match      - Choose either 1 or 2 rounds to win a match. More
                                   rounds mean that the match lasts longer.
    Round Time in Minutes        - Choose to have this OFF, or up to 30 minutes of
                                   round time. When the time is up, the round goes
                                   to sudden death.
    Move Time in Seconds         - This decides the maximum time for a worm to make
                                   his move. This can be OFF or up to 60 seconds.
                                   When the time is up, it then automatically moves
                                   onto the next worm.
    Worm Placing                 - Where the worms will be placed on the map. 
                                   Either RANDOM or TEAMS. RANDOM is better in my
                                   opinion, as in teams a well placed banana bomb
                                   or something can take them out in a single turn.
    Maximum Number of Mines      - Decides the maximum amount of mines in the 
                                   level. Either OFF or 1 to 8. The mines are
                                   placed randomly.
    Automatic Action Replay      - When a worm does a good move, killing another
                                   worm in a good way or style, an action replay
                                   will play automatically.
    Round Time Displayed         - Select either ON or OFF. If its on, the time is
                                   displayed, if its off it isn't.
    Extra Time at Time Out       - Select either ON or OFF. After the time has ran
                                   out Extra Time will play if its on. Extra Time
                                   is where all the remaining worms health goes
                                   down to 1.
    Banzai Mode                  - Select either ON or OFF. Having it on means
                                   that things do more damage, and as the manual
                                   says, the explosions will have the strength of
                                   dynamite.
    Action Tracking              - Having this ON centres the view on the worm that
                                   is on its turn.
    Clear all league statistics  - Selecting this will clear all the league stats
                                   which you probably don't want to do. If select
                                   it, it asks you again to be sure.
    
    Pressing EXIT goes back to the worm options menu.
    
    
    Weapon Options
    --------------
    Here you select how many of each weapon each worm starts with. You can either
    have it from 1 to 9, on (unlimited) or off (none to start with). Pressing X
    changes the amount, and triangle goes back. I prefer having all the weapons ON.
    Also you can put in a cheat here to have the bonus weapons included - to do
    this press X then Square repeatedly. The weapons are SHEEP, MINIGUN and BANANA
    BOMB. Note that these take over LANEMINES, UZI AUTOMATIC MACHINE GUN and
    CLUSTER BOMBS. You cannot save this cheat, so every time you start the game you
    have to put the cheat in. When you are finished, press EXIT to go back to the 
    worm options menu.
    
    WEAPONS CHEAT - Press X then Square over and over on the Weapons screen.
    
    
    Load / Save Options
    -------------------
    Here there are three status options - Save, load and default. Save saves all 
    the settings onto the memory card, Load loads the settings from the memory card
    and Default puts all the settings back to what they were originally. When you
    are done here, press EXIT to go back to the worm options menu.
    
    
    Audio Options
    -------------
    These change the audio options of the game. Pressing X on an amount increases
    it, whereas pressing Triangle decreases it.
    
    Music Volume   - From 0 to 10. This affects the music volume in the game.
    Effects Volume - From 0 to 10. This affects the effects volume in the game.
    Test Effects   - From 0 to 66. Changing the number plays the sound effects.
    Test Music     - From 0 to 5. Changing the number plays different music.
    
    When you are finished, press EXIT to go back to the worm options menu.
    
    
    Video Options
    -------------
    There is only one video option here - whether you want Full Motion Video on or
    off. The FMV will play before each match, and although nice for a while, can
    get annoying, so you can turn it off here. Press EXIT when you are done to
    go back to the worm options menu.
    
    
    Control Method
    --------------
    This is found on the Worm Options menu, just above EXIT. There are three
    different controls you can play the game in, and they are...
    
    Control Method A - Jump           = Triangle
                       Fire           = X
                       Tracking Mode  = Circle
                       Screen Modes   = Square
    
    Control Method B - Jump           = X
                       Fire           = Square
                       Tracking Mode  = Triangle
                       Screen Modes   = Circle
    
    Control Method C - Jump           = X
                       Fire           = Circle
                       Tracking Mode  = Square
                       Screen Modes   = Triangle
    
    Press X to change the control method. When you are done, press EXIT to go back
    to the main menu.

    These are the top eight worms in the game. On the left is the worms name,
    the middle the team that it plays for and on the right the points that the worm
    has owned. I think to gain points you have to kill worms and stay alive a lot
    than dying.. I'm not all that sure though. If anyone knows, gimme an email.

    Bazooka
    -------
    
    Damage:              50 points
    Affected by Wind:    Yes
    Affected by Gravity: Yes
    Landscape Damage:    Yes
    How to use:  After aiming using the D-Pad, press and hold fire to build up the
                 shot, and let go to fire.
    Tips on use:  Its a good and a bad weapon this, and it depends on the wind
                  level. You can perform some very good shots if you practice,
                  like bending it round corners or ledges and can be of great help,
                  but is very tough to do. I personally just aim it at a worm
                  nearby and but it on full power so it hits them dead on. The wind
                  can also aid your power if you fire it in that direction. Also,if
                  you are under a ledge that has a worm on, hitting the bottom of
                  the ledge at full power will cause the worm to fly off, hopefully
                  into a mine, off the screen or into water. I tend to use the
                  weapon for close shots, under ledges, and if I have ran out of
                  ammo on other weapons. Overall not bad but can prove very useful
                  if you practice with it; the CPU often shows off with it.

    Homing Missile
    --------------
    
    Damage:              50 points
    Affected by Wind:    No
    Affected by Gravity: No
    Landscape Damage:    Yes
    How to use:  Press fire and a curser will appear. Use the D-Pad to locate where
                 you want the homing missile to go, then press fire to confirm. Now
                 the view goes back to the worm, where you aim with the D-Pad.
                 Press and hold fire to build up the shot, and let go to the fire
                 the homing missile.
    Tips on use:  This is the Bazooka but can go after a selected target of your
                  choosing, being a worm, crate etc. After selecting the worm or
                  place it fires into, the aiming is important. The homing missiles
                  do not dodge the landscape at all; they just go straight to the
                  point you targeted regardless of what's in the way. So its best
                  when aiming to aim if you can up into the air so it goes up, then
                  hopefully comes down onto the target from above. Aiming at weapon
                  crates with worms nearby is a treat too. Do not attempt in
                  targeting worms when they are surrounded by the landscape or
                  when you are surrounded by landscape, as they will be a high
                  chance it will not reach the worm. Overall this weapon is great
                  if used correctly, and is awesome for picking out single worms or
                  targets late in a match when you want little room for error.

    Grenade
    -------
    
    Damage:              50 points
    Affected by Wind:    No
    Affected by Gravity: Yes
    Landscape Damage:    Yes
    How to use:  After aiming using the D-Pad, press and hold fire to build up the
                 throw, and let go to fire. Note that before throwing you can
                 change the fuse time and the bounce amount. To change the fuse
                 time, press L1 (this sets how long before it goes off) and to
                 change the bounce press R1 (this changes it between min and max
                 bounce).
    Tips on use:  These are similar to bazookas in a way. You aim and fire them
                  the same, although they are not effected by the wind, yet bounce
                  and roll around. They require practice, and are useful in firing
                  into holes and gaps where you cannot fire a gun straight into.
                  Also adjust the bounce nature and fuse time according to the
                  situation. A cool idea is on bridges stick it on minimum bounce
                  an skip it across the bridge at a worm in the middle or other
                  side. Overall only use it after enough practice, and for firing
                  into gaps, holes and over ledges.

    Cluster Bomb
    ------------
    
    Damage:              25 points per little bomb (5 bombs)
    Affected by Wind:    No
    Affected by Gravity: Yes
    Landscape Damage:    Yes
    How to use:  After aiming using the D-Pad, press and hold fire to build up the
                 throw, and let go to fire. Note that before throwing you can
                 change the fuse time and the bounce amount. To change the fuse
                 time, press L1 (this sets how long before it goes off) and to
                 change the bounce press R1 (this changes it between min and max
                 bounce).
    Tips on use:  These are grenades that when they explode, shatters into five
                  smaller bombs. These little bombs are great for groups or dealing
                  a lot of pain to a few worms. Note that they are still grenades
                  at heart and bounce and roll around the same and again need
                  practice to deal out good shots. The great thing is that if you
                  miss a little the bombs that come out spread out, so you have a
                  greater chance of hitting your target - also it damages more this
                  way too. A nice idea is to shower a group with them, by aiming
                  far into the air and getting lots of power so it hovers in the
                  air above the screen for a bit, pops, and rains bombs. Overall
                  great for groups, and for dealing greater damage to single or
                  few worms.

    Banana Bomb
    -----------
    
    Damage:              75 points per banana (5 bananas)
    Affected by Wind:    No
    Affected by Gravity: No
    Landscape Damage:    Yes
    How to use:  After aiming using the D-Pad, press and hold fire to build up the
                 throw, and let go to fire. Note that before throwing you can
                 change the fuse time and the bounce amount. To change the fuse
                 time, press L1 (this sets how long before it goes off) and to
                 change the bounce press R1 (this changes it between min and max
                 bounce).
    Tips on use:  This is the perhaps the most powerful thing in the game, and is a
                  secret weapon to boot (either collect in ammo boxes or use the
                  cheat to unlock). This is the exact same as the cluster bomb, but
                  the smaller bombs are bananas and deal out up to 75 points worth
                  of damage! These are great for groups, and will knock out a
                  team with one with a good shot. See the cluster bomb for more
                  notes. Overall I think that this is the best thing you can have
                  and is perfect for groups of worms blowing up a large chunk of
                  landscape.. bridges! yes!.. but still, it isn't worthy of a ten
                  due to that its a grenade based weapon (but if you can use
                  grenades good, then you have a big advantage here) where room for
                  error is high; often have I missed to find the bomb coming back
                  my way.

    Shotgun
    -------
    
    Damage:              20 points per shot (2 shots)
    Affected by Wind:    No
    Affected by Gravity: No
    Landscape Damage:    Yes
    How to use:  Aim the cross-hair with the D-Pad, and press fire to shoot the
                 first round. Then you get another shot.
    Tips on use:  Nice in a way. The only weapon (that damages) that enables you
                  two shots in a single turn, which is good for if you miss the
                  first time, then you can reajust your aim and try again. Also if
                  two worms nearby are low on health but cannot be killed with a
                  single shot on something else, then use this to get them both.
                  It's also nice under thin ledges or bridges to get several worms
                  or just to create holes. The bad things are that it does hurt
                  that much, and is best for close range.

    Damage:              10+ points
    Affected by Wind:    No
    Affected by Gravity: No
    Landscape Damage:    Yes
    How to use:  Aim the cross-hair with the D-Pad, then press and hold fire to
                 shoot a burst of automatic bullets.
    Tips on use:  This is not the best of weapons to use. When firing the aim
                  wobbles a little, and so can miss or not hit that much. Is worth
                  a try maybe on worms that are closely packed together. I would
                  highly advise an other weapon, say the shotgun.

    Landscape Damage:    Yes
    How to use:  Aim the cross-hair with the D-Pad, then press and hold fire to
                 shoot a burst of automatic bullets.
    Tips on use:  This is a more powerful version of the Uzi (found in ammo boxes
                  and using a cheat to unlock). This still has the problems of the
                  uzi in that when firing the aim wobbles a little but IS easier to
                  aim I guess, but now hits them so they fly off a little. Is
                  worth a try maybe on worms that are closely packed together
                  (especially if they are weak) but still would advise an other
                  weapon perhaps.

    Fire Punch
    ----------
    
    Damage:              30 points
    Affected by Wind:    No
    Affected by Gravity: No
    Landscape Damage:    No
    How to use:  Move next to the worm you want to use it against and press fire.
    Tips on use:  This is great for hitting worms into water, a mine or off the
                  screen. The punch doesn't hit the worm that much horizontally,
                  but more vertically instead. This is good as the worm can then go
                  over a raised part of the landscape or another worm. Also, your
                  worm jumps too, which is good if you want to clear some landscape
                  above you, or if you want to hit a worm above you. The Dragonball
                  is perhaps better for hitting worms to their doom overall though.

    Dynamite
    --------
    
    Damage:              75 points.
    Affected by Wind:    No
    Affected by Gravity: Yes
    Landscape Damage:    Yes
    How to use:  Pressing fire drops a stick of dynamite, where you have 5 seconds
                 to move away to a safer place (or you can stay there, but that's
                 suicide). After 5 seconds, you stop moving and the dynamite goes
                 off.
    Tips on use:  This is a great weapon to use, as it provides a great accuracy
                  (just drop it next to a worm) and you can escape to point where
                  you cannot be harmed. Make sure, unless you don't mind getting
                  harmed, that you know your escape route or position that you will
                  go to after you have dropped the dynamite. Use this on worms that
                  are close together also. A great idea is to drop these on other
                  worms. Just go to the ledge above them, stand right by the ledge
                  (be sure to face the ledge too) and if drops it off the edge.
                  This is good for accuracy, as throwing a grenade or something
                  similar off an edge is harder to do. Do this down holes too.
                  Also, if you are creating a base or something or want to make a
                  big hole in the landscape after you have drilled into it,
                  dynamite creates a nice reasonably large circle after it
                  explodes. Overall, this weapon has almost no drawbacks and does
                  a lot of damage. Just make sure you are out of the way before it
                  explodes...

    Damage:              50 points
    Affected by Wind:    No
    Affected by Gravity: Yes
    Landscape Damage:    Yes
    How to use:  Pressing fire drops a landmine, where you have 5 seconds to move
                 away to a safer place (or you can stay there, but that's suicide).
                 After 5 seconds, you stop moving and the landmines remains
                 unexploded until a worm approaches it.
    Tips on use:  The only real use is to guard an area, eg. a tunnel with a land
                  mine so any worm coming near it gets it. They can be used a
                  dynamite substitute, but its weaker, and should be used after
                  your dynamite supplies have gone. I don't use mines much, and I
                  think you shouldn't either. But for tunnels, its class.

    Damage:              75 points
    Affected by Wind:    No
    Affected by Gravity: Yes
    Landscape Damage:    Yes
    How to use:  Pressing fire releases a sheep which jumps and moves around.
                 Pressing fire again makes it explode. If after 30 seconds you
                 haven't detonated the sheep, it explodes regardless.
    Tips on use:  A comical weapon nonetheless, and is essentially moving dynamite.
                  The drawbacks are that you cannot control the sheep and it will
                  go anywhere, like the wrong way you want it to, it can get stuck,
                  jump onto water or off the screen, and even come back to you. I
                  think that you shouldn't use it a lot due to how unreliable it
                  is, but is nice if you want to gamble it to go over an area like
                  a long bridge to get a worm, and you want to stay away from that
                  area. Just be sure not to take you time exploding it or it will
                  explode anyway, and at the right moment.

    Airstrike

    Damage:              30 points per bomb (8 bombs)
    Affected by Wind:    No
    Affected by Gravity: Yes
    Landscape Damage:    Yes
    How to use:  Pressing fire makes a curser appear, which you move with the
                 D-Pad. After selecting the position, pressing fire again does an
                 airstike there.
    Tips on use:  This is a good weapon if you are lucky. Its surprisingly
                  inaccurate, and you have where you want it to go will not go
                  there 75% of the time, but to the left or right of that point. So
                  you can if you want try to put it to the left or right of the
                  worms that you want to hit, and hope it hits them dead on. The
                  airstrike bombs hit for about 30 points each, and are ideal for
                  groups or nearly dead worms. Towards the end of the game, a good
                  idea is to hide somewhere and call airstrikes to a single or few
                  worms on top of the landscape. These are also great on bridges
                  and on the icy levels (where they can slide into other worms
                  after being hit). Despite how inaccurate these are, the airstrike
                  is still one of my favourite weapons, and I tend to use it at the
                  start and end of the matches, at groups.

    How to use:  Pressing fire makes a curser appear, which you move with the
                 D-Pad. After selecting the position, pressing fire again moves the
                 worm to that position.
    Tips on use:  This is a simple but nice 'weapon', it simply moves your worm
                  into another area. If you are surrounded by worms / landscape and
                  you want out, and using the ninja rope isn't ideal, then the
                  teleport is a good way to go. Sometimes though, if you are
                  teleporting to a cave or a place surrounded by landscape (a
                  tunnel for example) it will not let you, as you got to have some
                  reasonable space to teleport to. Good places to teleport to
                  include on weapon crates and in cave areas.

    Tips on use:  Like the Blowtorch, is good for building bases or being

                  Blowtorch, as you will probably make your tunnels more horizontal

    Ninja Rope

    Damage:              N/A
    Affected by Wind:    No
    Affected by Gravity: No (swinging with the rope yes)
    Landscape Damage:    No
    How to use:  After aimimg at a part of the landscape you want to swing from
                 using the D-Pad. Pressing fire shoots the ninja rope in that
                 direction (note that the rope isn't very long). When the worm is
                 dangling on the rope, you can swing using the D-Pad. Pressing
                 fire again lets go of the rope.
    Tips on use:  This is THE way to go if you wanna move somewhere on the
                  landscape! When you are attached to the landscape, there
                  are two ways of getting somewhere. Either press up so you go to
                  the base of where you hit so you move to there then let go. The
                  other way, which is much better, is to swing. Pressing left and
                  right makes the rope swing (try to press left as you are going
                  left, and right when you are swinging right). Then you can
                  extend the rope so that you hit some landscape, then let go to
                  go there. Or, you can let go in the swing and fly across the
                  screen, hopefully to somewhere you want to go. A funny thing is
                  to attach to a piece of land this is in midair, and to swing 360
                  degrees around it, and let go to fly off somewhere (somewhat
                  useful, but mostly suicide). Not only that, you can use the rope
                  as many times as you want in your turn. While on a rope it just
                  takes away something like five seconds from your time however
                  long you are on it, so take your time. You also don't end your
                  turn after you fall from a long drop. The only drawback is that
                  it takes a while to go from place to place, and also your friends
                  that you are playing against might moan about this. ;) Practice
                  so you can move to places quicker and more efficiently.

    Tips on use:  Sort of like a ninja rope, you can swing when dangling, but not
                  to the same extent. It can be useful in some circumstances, like
                  if you want just to drop vertically down, but otherwise the

    Affected by Wind:    No
    Affected by Gravity: No
    Landscape Damage:    Yes
    How to use:  Aim the worm in the selected direction, and press fire to execute.
                 The worm will fly in a straight line in the direction its facing
                 and explodes after travelling about two thirds of the screen.
    Tips on use:  I haven't used this a lot, but in the right circumstances it can
                  be awesome. The worm will travel in a straight line, and when it
                  hits another worm it takes off 30 points, and when it explodes
                  causes about 50 points. This can be used to kill single worms at
                  the end of a match, aimed at entire teams and is GREAT on
                  bridges. The worm can go through the landscape and just about
                  anything else. Oh, and if you didn't already know, this kills
                  the worm that uses this weapon. Which is a slight downside but
                  if you use it right, it means you can draw a one on one worm
                  fight at the end of a match.

                  pushed enough to fall off, meaning you have wasted a go. Simply
                  use another weapon that makes the worm go further and hurts them
                  also (eg. the Dragon Ball).

                                5. TIPS AND STRATEGIES
                              --------------------------
    ===============================================================================
    
    These are tips and strategies that could improve your ability at playing Worms.
    Of course everyone plays different, so apply the tips to your game style as you
    see fit.
    
    When going offensive, tend to use weapons such as the grenade based weapons, 
    the bazooka, shotgun, the punching based weapons and dynamite. I personally
    tend to go offensive at the start and middle of the match, trying to damage
    and kill as many worms as soon as possible before they hide away and go all
    defensive. When you get low of worms, go defensive too.
    
    Playing defensive involves hiding and being sneaky. You could if you want even
    build a base. But I would just advise for where ever your worms are located to
    hid there instead of in groups. If you are more together, its easier for the
    other teams to gang up on you and thus will be harder to survive. Hide under 
    ledges and landscape so that weapons like the airstrike and other projectile
    weapons are less likely to hit you. Use the blowtorch to borrow tunnels in the
    landscape and hide there. If you want, lay a mine somewhere in the tunnel so
    that it helps protect you. If there is a worm above you, then use a fire punch
    to punch up vertically to hit them. Placing girders over your worms or over
    the tunnel entrances will block enemy fire for a short amount of time. Now
    after you have hid yourself, use airstrikes, or find a gap in the landscape
    to fire projectile weapons like the grenade based weapons or a homing missile.
    
    For travelling around the landscape, using the ninja rope is by far the best
    best if you want travel for about half the landscape. If you are going to a
    place that is far away though, or its hard to use the ninja rope, use a 
    teleport. The bungee rope is only good if you want to drop down safely.
    
    When you are firing between stuff that is somewhat far apart, a nice idea is
    to use the bazooka (make sure that the wind is on your side or is at least
    neutral, otherwise I would perhaps leave it as the rocket can come back to you)
    and aim, then fire full power. Of course its best to have the object or worm
    that you are firing at ahead of you. I think using the bazooka in this way
    means that you can save other weapon ammo for later when the shots are harder
    to do.
    
    Mines do not explode when they are hit by a weapon, only when a worm is near
    them. So, you can hit the mines into worms, or the worms into the mines. Use
    something like the shotgun (for two chances). This is great as not only do the
    mines hurt quite a bit, but the worm will be thrown some distance, meaning they
    could then collide into more mines or to their doom.
    
    If one of your worms starts in a closed part of the landscape (like a closed
    cave) they stay there, as you are at an advantage. Don't teleport or try to
    move anywhere (for now) and just use airstrikes. Keep doing this until you
    run out of airstrikes or you cannot do much else in that position, then either
    borrow yourself out or teleport somewhere.
    
    If you start on a bridge, then I would advice to move yourself off as soon as
    you can. If you are fired upon when on a bridge then there is a big chance you
    will die. If you are attacking a bridge, either airstrike (although its not 
    that accurate its well worth trying), or skim a grenade, cluster / banana bomb
    (with min bounce) or get on the straight part of the bridge and kamikaze across
    it (tend to do this when there are a lot of worms on there).
    
    If a worm is on a thinish ledge and you are underneath it, send a bazooka or
    homing missile round under there to send the worm flying. If you fire from the
    inside of the ledge the when the worm gets hit it flies away from it. This is
    good if there is water or the edge of the screen nearby for a quick kill.
    
    Shooting at weapon crates will make them explode. Boom. Anything nearby will be
    hurt quite a bit, so if there are any worms near a weapon crate fire something
    that way (an airstrike is nice) so the next time a crate drops, fire at
    before someone collects it. Or collect it yourself if you are near it.

                                 6. LANDSCAPE GENERATOR
                               --------------------------
    ===============================================================================
    
    The landscape generator is where you input a code, or the game randomly
    generates one, and the game builds a landscape around that code. Each code's
    landscape will always be unique, so every time you put in that code the
    landscape will be the same. According to the manual, there are over 4 billion
    different possibilities that you can have, meaning that you are not gonna
    run out of landscapes in a hurry (well probably ever). Try and put some of your
    own codes in, like your name or your birthday, or anything. Remember that the 
    code can only be at a maximum of 10 characters. If any of you request or have
    any codes of your own that you would like to submit that would be worth
    mentioning in this FAQ, then please email me them (as always, your gonna get
    credit).
    
    After you have selected your teams and before you start the match, you will
    have to choose the landscape that you are going to play on. The main bulk of
    the screen (in black and white) is the landscape that has been generated by 
    the code (which is at the bottom of the screen). At the bottom left is the
    clock and at the top is the start and select controls.
    
    When a landscape has been generated, the clock counts down from 10 to 0. At 0,
    the match will begin with the current landscape. In that time you can view
    the landscape (press left or right to view more of the landscape) and make your
    mind up if you want to play on this landscape or not. If you do, press Start
    to begin the match. If you don't, then you can generate another map in two 
    ways; either pressing select to generate a random code, or by putting a code in
    by yourself. Pressing X does this, then up or down to change the letter and
    left or right to change the character. When you have inputted the code, press
    X to generate the landscape, where you will see it and the clock starts again.

    Types of landscape
    ------------------
    
    There are different types of landscape to play on. They range with the colour
    of the water at the bottom of the level, the ground colour and the features
    in the landscape (such as trees and demon statues). Here is a list of the 
    different types of landscape -
    
    Arctic
    Alien Planet
    Junk Yard
    Hell
    Candy Land
    Jungle
    Beach
    Desert

                                     ------------

    Q. What are the match statistics and how do I get my worm/s on it?
     
    A. The match statistics are shown at the end of the match and are awards that
       are given to the worms depending on how they performed during the match.
       Worm of the Match is given to he best worm; who has most (in not all) of its
       life left and has caused a lot of damage to others. Best Shot is given to
       the worm that did the best shot (that killed the most worms / did the most
       damage), Most Fierce is the worm that consistently did damage to others and
       Most Useless is the worm that was the, erm, most useless, where they did
       overall poorly or who died early on in the match.

    Q. What's the best weapon to use in the game?
    
    A. My personal favourite is the banana bomb, because of its amazing damage that
       it can dish out. Other weapons that rock are the homing missile, dynamite
       and Dragonball. Note that these are all used in different situations so
       get used to using a variety of weapons.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Q. What's a good way to practice?
    
    A. I think that playing 1 player games against the computer helps. Play against
       the CPU on poor to start with, then as you get better increase the
       difficulty. This will help build up your strategies and will get you used to
       the weapons.
    
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Q. Are there any cheats or unlockables in this game?
    
    A. The only cheat available is the weapons cheat, which allows you to use the
       Banana Bomb, Exploding Sheep and Minigun in any match. Note that these
       override certain weapons (the Cluster Bomb, Mine and Uzi respectively)
       and must be entered each time you start the game as it isn't saved on
       to your memory card. I would say its worth doing though, as for the Banana
       Bombs alone it makes the game a lot more fun to play.
    
       Anyway, the weapons cheat - press X then Square over and over on the
       Weapons screen (in the Options from the Main Menu).
