Can anyone get the game Worms: World Party running on Ubuntu? If so, how? Since that game is old, I think there has to be a way.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Its not been tested under Wine for a bit but the results are not encouraging – Sathya Jul 7 '10 at 19:25
Instead of trying to run worms world part you should try hedgewars which is pretty good and also has a online mode. – Alaukik Feb 6 '11 at 8:55

If it is a CD-ROM based game that normally installs on Windows, you may be able to get it installed and working using Wine.

Wine is a program that allows the installation and operation of Windows-based applications. I have successfully used it to install and play several games, but I've also failed to get some games working.

A very popular addition to Wine is called PlayOnLinux. Both Wine and POL can be installed using Ubuntu's built-in Software Center. Look for it in the 'Applications' menu.

Good luck!
