For Worms, it seems it was only the very first version (Total Wormage, not the game released as Worms at the time) that was in Blitz Basic.

The game was originally created by Andy Davidson as an entry for a Blitz BASIC programming competition run by the Amiga Format magazine, a cut-down version of the programming language having been covermounted previously. The game at this stage was called Total Wormage (possibly in reference to Total Carnage) and it did not win the competition. Davidson sent the game to several publishers with no success. He then took the game to the European Computer Trade Show, where Team17 had a stand. Team17 made an offer on-the-spot to develop and publish the game

There are probably some articles about that among the magazines scanned on AMR if you have some time to do more research.

It would make sense for Guardian to have been programmed in Blitz Basic since it was made by Acid. Need to investigate the matter. Any contribution is welcome.
