Veteran English indie Team17 Software has latched onto Good Old Games, infesting the digital distributor with its classic Worms United and Alien Breed. They're the first spawn of a relationship that'll see more Team17 games bursting forth from GOG, including Superfrog and World Rally Fever.
$5.99 gets you Worms United, which packs the original Worms--not any of its innumerable sequels, 3D iterations, spin-offs, revamps, remakes, or anything else--plus the 'Reinforcements' expansion. It's a snip for hours of nostalgic turn-based strategy shenanigans.
Alien Breed is also offered in a $5.99 pack, with the original and the third game in top-down shooter series, Alien Breed: Tower Assault. Team17 recently revived the franchise in the episodic Alien Breed Evolution, though replaced the enemies clearly lifted from the Alien movie series--half the charm, really.
