Another World – 20th Anniversary Edition reviews and comments

Another World is not a good Game. If you Enter a new Screen Section, you Usually die in a few Seconds. Next Time you can prevent the Death and then just dies in the next Scene. That would explain the Game principle. In Addition, there is a hairy control that will also be the Cause of some Death. Those who played Prince of Persia at that time can imagine what awaits him. And why do you do something like that? Because Another World is different from most Games. It doesn't tell you what to do and not how. You get thrown into this strange World and you have to look at how you cope. Although the Game is really very short and the Character except running, Jumping and Using weapons has no Skills whatsoever I was surprised at what made the Game out of it. It really is not a very good Game but an unusual Experience by which I can also understand why this Game has gained a certain Cult Status. Negatives:-Game has crashed every now and then-a few frustrating sections in which you have to repeat several Scenes after Death-no Replay Value positive:-It's different-Mood-Effects-Achievement for 50 Death

Ok, fun for the retro game atmosphere with a nice little spirit. On the other hand it is quite short and with a gameplay of the time so twisted sometimes! For 2 euros Ok. 9.99 was abuse.

A splendor! I dreamed for a long time to play this mythical game and it's done. Impeccable gameplay, a unique atmosphere a masterpiece! The portage is perfect. must-have.

Incredible to find this mythical game on my Mac! The adaptation is both faithful to the original and modernized, and the game has not taken a ride !! Thank you Bulkypix and Eric Chahi for this very successful revival!

I took it only in an attack of nostalgia (a dear attack), the graphics, even the hd version, practically do not differ from the original (it doesn't improve much as happens with the prince of persia), with almost identical playability, the only sore point, I remembered it longer, I finished it quickly.

Unfortunately, the controller can not be set. The menu is present, but no buttons can be changed. Even in the Siel itself does not press a button. Only the mouse button seems to be occupied with "Action". But that is not enough to act in the game. Please fix or instructions. Otherwise it is unplayable and not worth the money.

It is heavy having to repeat too many long zones each time they kill you, which is quite easy by the way. They make you lose gameplay and you quickly get tired of repeating the same thing until you find a way to move forward. For the lovers of the genre and the nostalgic, it may seem interesting. To me, I get bored quickly. In the end, for tastes the colors...

I do not value the game in itself, since it is a great classic, but the porting from the original version (which I had played on PC DOS) to Mac OS X. Not bad, but I would have improved the graphics a bit more: end the HD version, however, quite pixellated, simply a little less than the original one. The current cost seems a bit too high for this conversion with little added value. If the game graphics had been at the level of the illustration used as a cover it would have been a whole other thing and even the current price would have been more justified.
