Conclusion about the permissions
The permissions of Worms 2: Armageddon show no abnormalities.

Who does not know Worms, has really missed something! In principle, it is about completely crazy worms that start with an arsenal of normal as well as wacky weapons in turn-based battles against each other. In addition to the destructible environments and physics (for example, wind) but it is also the humor that makes the games so popular. As there were not enough that there are worms, you can sometimes just shake their heads at the already mentioned weapons. Bouncing banana grenades, flying super sheep that explode with a loud bleating, explosive old women, holy grenades, homing pigeons bombs and, and, and. was my favorite, and Worms: Armageddon, which is now 14 years old. Some time ago appeared Worms: Revolution for the PC, which is a perfectly worthy remake of the series and brings well water as a new element manipulable.

Android you were to now we have not been blessed with good reactions. The first Worms game could not convince me absolutely. With Worms 2: Armageddon has but now delivered a good implementation. The game is based (as the name suggests) very loosely on Worms: Armageddon. The arsenal of weapons is very similar (and thus really extensive), and also a few new managed into play. Otherwise, there are actually almost everything you want in a Worms game: you can create your own team and customize (including many funny language that already the old Worms Armageddon brought) design and even their own playing styles (rules and weapons). Then you can prove themselves against other worms in single or multiplayer (only in the tub or smartphone handing unfortunately). The single player mode features quick games, exercise games, ever increasing waves of enemies in "Body Count" and a campaign mode which is actually only from various normal games. With earned coins you can buy things like hats, weapons or grave stones.

Conclusion
Worms 2: Armageddon delivers exactly what you want: A full Worms game on the smartphone or tablet. The control has been (more on that later) and the destructible environment and object physics is also well implemented one of the party. Two criticisms there yet: The teams can consist only of four worms and there is no multiplayer via the mobile Internet.

screen & service

Worms 2: Armageddon is his spiritual role model Worms: Armageddon in terms of graphics very similar and is only here and there modernized appropriately. Worms, weapons and the Environment backgrounds are all superbly animated and give no cause for criticism. In the Play Store, I've read of control problems over and over again, but I absolutely can not understand the Galaxy Note 2: The control system works well, is simply constructed and internalized immediately.

speed & stability

Worms 2: Armageddon was stable in the test, always smoothly and without problems. is when the app starts it takes a few seconds for the server contacts (for license verification), otherwise there except when loading a level (which takes a few seconds) no waiting.

Price-performance

Currently there are Worms 2: Armageddon for a short period to 1.99 € in the Google Play Store. Not cheap, but a fair price for a good implementation. Otherwise, does the game cost € 4, which is already significantly happiger.
