It seems as if Mac gaming is gaining a bit more traction compared to previous years. The release of Steam and the Mac App Store have given developers an avenue to release games to Mac users in a more efficient manner. The newest arrival is Worms Special Edition. Available now for $9.99.

From the press release:

    Team 17 today announced the release of Worms™ Special Edition, now available for Mac, from both the Apple Mac App Store and the Mac Game Store. Worms™ Special Edition is a streamlined, standalone Mac version of the recent PC best-seller Worms™ Reloaded, featuring the classic combination of turn-based strategy and comic mayhem.

    Releasing at $9.99/£5.99/€7.99 in the US, UK and Europe, Worms ™ Special Edition includes up to four player offline multi-player destruction, a raft of crazy and classic Worms™ weapons, all new high-definition landscape themes, new landscape editor, new play modes, hats, forts, skins and speech banks. To top it all off, there is also a highly-involving Worms™ single-player experience with tutorials, deathmatches, races, fort games and puzzles. The game is also packed with customization options, so you can play the game exactly how you want!

    Key features:

    • Extensive single-player campaign, with over sixty levels of annelid annihilation!
    • Up to four-player hot-seat mode for “old-school” local multi-player mayhem.
    • Bodycount mode! How will you survive with having just one worm pitched against never ending spawning enemy worms that get increasingly tougher?
    • 12 new weapons, including Super Bunker Buster, Ferrets, Poison Strike, Worship, Sentry Gun, Electromagnet, Buffalo of Lies, and new persistent fire!
    • Mac specific controls: Mouse and trackpad play, user defined controls and function key support for fast access to common weapons!
