Quite funny game, but the controls are often very choppy if not surprising so it's very much luck if something works as you planned it (e.g. you sometimes go to a place where you can't move any more, fire power is very hard to control because the visual feedback is very rough or you magically fly crazy around after quitting the ninja rope...). Besides that: Why no window mode and why the hell does cmd+q not work?
Could be better, but at least we have another worms game on the mac!

Good game overall, but has a minor problem IMO:

You cant run it in a window; it has to be full-screen, which sometimes is quite annoying.

Despite of it, it's an addictive game

When I connect to the Mac Store, to download the game, they ask for a 9.99 $ payment, although I bought Worms through the MacUpdate bundle and it's already paid for.

Anybody know how to simply download this game without having to pay again ?

Did you get an answer to this? I also purchased it via the bundle and can't figure out how to redeem the purchase or get a serial number.

Works for me, but the game itself isn't that great in my opinion.

Also, why is this game's cost listed on MacUpdate as $378? :P

because it's part of the MU Promo bundle which is overall valued at that price.

Anyone knows if the local multiplayer is on LAN or all people on the same computer?

Read some reviews in the AppStore that keyboard passes out right from the beginning where you enter your name.

Solution is to turn of TextExpander or anything like that.
