About This Game

Selected by the fickle finger of fate, Abe™, floor-waxer first class for RuptureFarms, was catapulted into a life of adventure when he overheard plans by his boss, Molluck the Glukkon™, to turn Abe and his fellow Mudokons into Tasty Treats as part of a last-ditch effort to rescue Molluck's failing meat-packing empire.
During his escape from RuptureFarms, Abe received a vision from the mysterious Big Face, showing Abe that he must not only rescue his fellow Mudokons, but also protect all of Oddworld's creatures from the predatory Magog Cartel.
After completing arduous Temple trials, and journeying across a wasteland with his friend Elum, Abe was granted the awesome power of the Shrykull. Returning to RuptureFarms, Abe destroyed the foul slaughterhouse, rescued his buddies, and brought down some righteous lightning on top of Molluck's pointy head.

Oddworld Abe's Oddysee is a "cinematic" puzzle platformer.
Many would argue its not that "Cinematic" if compared to other Cinematic Platformers from the 90's Prince of persia etc.
The Game will need alot of Patience and sometimes even Strategy.
This game has a very dark story behind it. And its not afraid to show it in its game design.
If i would have to describe this game in one word its Odd. And thats not a pun.
The Character design is odd. The Creatures are odd. And The World is odd.
Please notice that this game is a port of the DOS version of the game. It has very many bugs. But there is a patch online that is very easy to install that fixes all this.

GAMEPLAY
This game is pretty much everything you would expect from a Cinematic Platformer.
You have a Jump Button. You have a roll button. you have Game Talk.
Now gametalk is the part that makes oddworld an unique game (Atleast for its time)
Game talk basicly allows you to Talk to your Mudoken Friends. You can tell them to follow you. and stop.
When you tell them to follow you they will do that. Theyll just follow you. Tell Them Stop They will stop
In this game you dont have an attack button. But you can Chan and take over some of the Enemy Sligs minds and controll them. The Sligs have guns. So you will know what to do.
Just watchout not to kill your buddies.

Im too lazy to write more.

10/10 Still Holds Up.

This game franchise has a huge community even to this day.
as some examples there are plenty of Tumbr ask blogs of this game

A puzzle platformer in it's original PS1 state.

It will make you think.
It will make you laugh.
It will make you curse.

Great story, great characters, great puzzles.

Much better than the remake in pretty much every single way and yes this includes the visuals. I just wish Gaben flew down from the Kingdom of Heaven and gave me a special achievement on Steam and a pat on the head, telling me how special I am, for saving all the 99 Mudokons. A man can dream.
