01 - Introduction and Copyright:

 Worms World Party (from this point on 'WWP') was developed by Team17 Software
 and published by Ubisoft. Released in 2002 it is one of four Worms games
 released on Game Boys and one of two released on Game Boy Advance.  This
 FAQ was, at the time it was started, the 104th most wanted FAQ for GBA on
 GameFAQs and the only FAQ request for a game that I have access to.

 This FAQ is for private and personal use and is to be displayed only on
 GameFAQs and its affiliates. The FAQ author is "Quolnok", other contributors
 are listed in section 10.

 1.15  30th of May 2005
 A few changes throughout the FAQ.


03 - Game Basics:

 The aim in any game of worms is to kill your opponent's worms before they kill
 yours. You will control 1 of up to 4 teams of worms, battling on one of many
 possible landscapes. Scattered across the land you may find Drums and Mines, a
 drum explodes if a attack or explosion hits it and a mine explodes if a worm
 comes too close. Occasionally supplies will fall from the sky, these have
 three types: Health (white box with red cross), Utilities (toolbox with wrench
 on the front) and Weapons (brown crate), if these are hit they too can
 explode.

 WWP is a turn-based game so each attack must be completed within a time limit,
 bottom left of screen, also after several minutes a Sudden Death mode will
 activate, this counter won't always be on the screen but is below the turn
 counter. WWP has no save capabilities, this and the lack of ability to create
 original worm names are the only real flaws in the game.


03.1 - Landscape:

 The landscape in WWP has two general types; landmass(es) and caves. In caves
 there is a maximum game height and width; these maximums are marked by red
 lines, no worm/projectile can pass through this line so attacks like Air
 Strike are unavailable. All landscapes have water at the bottom,
 if a worm falls in it dies.


03.2 - Weapons and Utilities:

 Items unavailable in "caves" marked with '*'.
 Items affected by wind marked with '~'.
 Items that are in this list but aren't true weapons/utilities '##', do not
 appear on SELECT menu.

 The following cheat will give you and other human players 1 of each
 weapon/utility, unless you're in a cave map where there are certain things
 unavailable (see 03.2). If you had more than one or unlimited of anything,
 those items will all be set to one.

 1) Press SELECT, highlight Skip Go and press A once.
 2) Press SELECT, hold L, Dpad d, and B.

 While this is the best way to try out all the weapons, I suggest playing
 through missions in the intended way so that you will learn the controls.

06 - Multiplayer Game Setup:

 A multiplayer game of WWP consists of 2 to 4 teams of worms with 1 to 4 human
 players controlling their team on 1 GBA.

 Several selectable items and 2 lists are on the screen. At the top left is a
 link to the main options (section 7), below that is Edit Team (section 6.1),
 below that are four major options from the game options list:
 Start Health (100/150/200), Round Time (0/5/10/15/20/25/30 minutes before
 sudden death), Turn Time (15/20/30/45/60/90 sec) and number of rounds required
 to win (1/2/3/5/7/9), at the bottom is WormPot options (section 6.2).

 On the right is the Team List, teams in the multiplayer game, to add to the
 Team List select a name in the Barracks and press A, to remove press a in the
 Team List, changing computer control is done in the Edit Team menu
 (section 6.1).


06.1 - Edit Team:

 There are 8 teams, their names can not be changed, to edit a different team
 press A on the team name. The teams are: Liquid Silk, Bruces Boys,
 Kilburn Del, Team Chesh, The Gods, Elite, Olympians and Evil Team.
 Each team has 6 worms these names can be changed to other predefined names.
 Next you can set human/CPU skill level, human has no number whereas CPU has
 values 1 to 5, 5 being hardest. The last setting is Special Weapon, you will
 receive one of your special weapon each round, normally these weapons are only
 found in crates. Your choices are: Mad Cow, Holy Hand Grenade and Super Sheep,
 these weapons are equally powerful, check section 03.2 to see how they work.


06.2 - WormPot Options:

 WormPot options change the way the game works, in a multiplayer game you can
 use 3 WormPot options, some are unavailable in some of the 3 boxes so choose
 carefully. If you want a normal multiplayer game leave the WormPot options as
 they are. The following is a list of all modes, what they are and which square
 they are selectable in:

 Name          |In | Description
 --------------|---|-----------------------------------------------------------
 1 Heath       | 2 | Worms start at 1 health.

07 - Options:

 From here you can go to (clockwise from bottom) Landscape Options, Game
 Options or Weapon Options.


07.1 - Landscape Options:

 If you want a specific theme and landscape highlight the bottom option to
 Toggle Random Land Mode off, next move up to the right and select the shape of
 the landscape, the last 4 of the 20 possibilities are caves, these prevent
 some weapons from being used (see 03.2). On the left is theme select, as these
 themes are hard to tell apart in this box, the following is a list of
 unofficial names for the 16 themes in the order they appear:

 01 - Space
 02 - Art
 03 - Construction
 04 - Fruit
 05 - Medeval
 06 - War
 07 - Medical
 08 - Jungle
 09 - Castle
 10 - Music
 11 - Sports
 12 - Time
 13 - Tools
 14 - Hell
 15 - Pirate
 16 - Farm


07.2 - Gameplay Options:

 Here you will see a lot of options, these options cannot be saved for use on
 your next play, starting from the left column I will now briefly explain the
 more complicated ones:

 Starting Health, Round Time (time before sudden death), Worm Retreat Time
 (time allowed to run from explosive seconds), Hot Seat Time (Time in hotseat
 required to win a hotseat game)

 Rounds (to win), Turn Time, Rope Retreat Time(time allowed to run after using
 rope), Round Time Display (on/off)

 Select Worm (allow change of worms), Music, Weapon Drop Frequency, Health Drop
 Frequency, Utils Drop Frequency

 Artillery Mode (worms can't move), Drums and Mines on Level (what you want on
 the level), Health Pack Value

 Stockpiling Mode(flat is off, right up stockpile, left up antistockpile), Mine
 Fuse, Sudden Death Action (see section 03.5)

 Falls Take Damage, Mines can be dud, Water rise rate


07.3 - Weapon Options:

 This lets you change the amount of weapons you can use, its fairly self
 explanatory so I'll be brief. At the top right you can choose to edit ammo for
 different ranks, the top left switches between:
 AMMO  - The amount of each weapon you start with 0-9, unlimited.
 POWER - Damage potential of the weapons 0-5 (all defaults are 3).
 DELAY - Number of turns before the weapon is useable 0-9.
 CRATE - Likelihood of that item being in a crate.


08 - Contact:

 If you see something missing that should be added (such as hidden features) or
 incorrect spelling/grammar you can e-mail Quolnok[at]hotmail[dot]com with
 "WormsWP GBA FAQ" in the subject. (Spelling is checked using Australian
 English with Microsoft Word)


09 - Other Questions:

 Important questions not answered elsewhere in the FAQ are answered here, these
 come mostly by e-mail, but may also be thought of by me or stumbled onto while
 checking the usually empty WWP message board on GameFAQs/GameSpot.

 Q: The cool weapons like Carpet Bomb, Homing Strike, Super Banana, etc. how do
    you get those?  Like if you're in a 2-player game. Do they drop from
    crates? Because I know that completing the missions doesn't do it as
    there's no saving.

 A: Anything you don't have infinite numbers of by default will appear at
    random in crates, the better the weapon the less likely they will be in the
    crate. Of course in cave levels you'll never get certain weapons (Carpet
    Bomb, Homing Strike, etc), however in multiplayer games there is a setting
    that will get you one of a selected rare weapon from the start (Super
    Sheep, Mad Cow, Holy Hand Grenade)

 Q: Where's the save option?

 A: The developers decided not to put one in, I'm not sure why.

 Q: My GBA(SP)/GBM crashed/froze/glitched during game play what do I do?

 A: Much like a PC, when a GBA crashes all unsaved data is lost, unless the
    system backs it up, for WWP all progress is wiped.

    I've experienced this on several occasions in WWP and no other games, it
    only seems to happen when I've taken few breaks (or set all weapon options
    to maximum). So taking more breaks may help, but I'm unsure. I suspect a
    variable isn't being reset.

 Q: I was wondering is there a way to erase your game? I got this game used so
    I don't know if anyone has played this or so. Also is it normal for one
    player to start with all the levels or did someone beat those?

 A: Sadly, as I mentioned previously, there is no way to save your game,
    because of this there is nothing to erase. Yes it's normal to start with
    all the levels.

 Q: I didn't receive instructions with my WWP, and I can't figure out how to
    switch Worms when it is my turn, I have to play the one that is selected.
    Do I have the option of selecting a different one? This really cuts down on
    the whole "strategy" element for me. Thanks!

 A: The Select Worm ability falls under the category of weapon/utility as such
    you usually only can use it around 0 - 2 times per game when it falls in a
    utility crate. Alternatively it can be set to always on (activates at start
    of each turn) in the options menu (only works for multiplayer). To use
    Select Worm simply press A when it is activated (two arrows will circle
    above the current worm's head).
