The hedgehogs in the game are cute and they move around in various ways. Usually, they walk and jump but you can also use tools like a parachute and rope. These are used to get to inaccessible areas. Every turn is limited by time, as you surely expected.
Many different weapons and tools are available for all players. This includes Cluster Bomb, Grenade, UFO, Bazooka, Fire Punch, Desert Eagle, Dynamite, Baseball Bat, Fire Punch, Pneumatic Pick, and Mine. Most of the weapons will cause explosions that will deform the terrain. This removes circular chunks.
The battlefield is an island that floats over water but you can also play in a cave that includes water. The hedgehog dies if it reaches the water, is thrown off the side of the arena, or the health reaches zero, which happens when affected by explosions.
On the whole, if you remember Worms or you played Worms, Hedgewars is very similar and is a game you will enjoy.
