Worms Reloaded is a strategy game developed and published by Team17. It was released on 26 August 2010 on Steam. It is an extended port of the game Worms 2: Armageddon which was first released on the Xbox 360 in 2009. The series returns to its 2D roots and abandons the 3D versions of more recent times which were considered by a number of reviewers to be somewhat awkward and lacking the same quality of gameplay. A Mac OS X version was released on May 17, 2011, and a Linux version on October 15, 2013.
A DRM-free version that doesn't require Steam was released to the Humble Store on October 15, 2013. This version is limited to offline "hotseat" multiplayer. Purchase also includes a Steam key and the Android version of Worms 2: Armageddon.
Gameplay is turn-based and back to 2D for the first time on PC since Worms World Party in 2001. The graphics are more cartoonish than in WWP and the Worms will scream when they panic. For example, if a Grenade is thrown next to a Worm, it will react to the Grenade before explosion, and also that a Worm looks to the weapon shot. For example, throwing an Holy Hand Grenade will make them see the Holy Hand Grenade.

In a Quick Game, one player will face one enemy team with both 4 Worms per team. The player will not be able to choose his/her map, this means that a randomly generated map will be chosen. The weapons and utilities are close to the Standard game style.
- Beginner: In Beginner the players are provided with normal and superweapons.
- Standard: In Standard, the players are provided with a normal set of weapons.
- Pro: In Pro the players are provided with a limited amount of weapons for a competitive game.
- Rope Racing: In Rope Racing the players should move from the start to the finish as soon as possible. This has to be done using only the Ninja Rope and normal movements. The player with the fastest time will win the race. (The player can get fall damage.)
- Fort: In Fort there are two teams. Each team is provided with a fort and limited moving utilities.
- Crazy Crates: In Crazy Crates the players are provided with a very limited amount of weapons. The player will have to find more powerful weapons in crates, which will drop very often.
- Bazookas and Grenades: As the name states, only Bazookas and Grenades are usable weapons.
- Warzone: In Warzone the players are provided with a lot of weapons and utilities. It will take several turns for good weapons to unlock, even the Dynamite.
The training mode includes three tutorials and three firing ranges. Training mode teaches the basics, and firing ranges are used for testing any weapons and utilities available in Worms Reloaded. You can also add targets, dummies, adjust wind and water levels. Completing the three tutorials will earn the player some in-game coins.

The campaign mode of Worms Reloaded has 35 missions, of which the last 5 are more difficult and have to be bought in the in-game shop. Completing the mission will earn the player coins which can be used in the in-game shop.
Another campaign mode, but recommended for advanced players. Includes 31 missions. These missions will not earn the player in-game coins.
In Body Count the player will get one Worm while the enemy gets four Worms. The player will have to get a high score by making kills. The player gets more points for double, triple, and multi-kills. If an enemy Worm dies, a new enemy Worm will spawn at the end of the turn. WARNING: The enemies can get more health.
The highest scores of all players can be found in the leaderboards.
A local match is the same as a Custom Game.
