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.

I remember playing this when I was a lad. I could never finish it with my kid fingers, so I redownloaded it for a PS1 emulator and finally beat it about two years ago. Unfortunately, I got the worst possible ending. So here I am, back again, playing this game for the third time in my life, and hopefully I'll get the good ending. Wish me luck!

Oh, and nostalgia aside, this is a great platformer, requiring a lot of thought, timing, patience and the ability to refrain from punching a hole in your PC screen. All round great game, a solid 10/10 from me.

A good thing to note is that you will absolutely need your sound on to communicate with the other Mudokons, a detail, but relatively important none the less.

EDIT: There's an HD remake of this game called New 'n Tasty and it looks even better than the original. They are replacing the screen by screen gameplay with a more modern scrolling style. Check it out before buying this just in case you prefer it. I bought both.

This game is odd. It's very very odd. It's also dark, disturbing, messed up, scary, and freaking hilarious.

Also, people who say Dark Souls is hard obviously haven't played this. Oddworld is basically Dark Souls: The Puzzle Platformer.

My first time playing this game and i must say, i am blown away! the only thing i could remember from an oddworld game is munch's oddysee trailer from somewhere on the first xbox. After seeing gameplay online and my brothers experience i just wasn't interested. i was such a fool! it's only $3 so i just decided to give it a try. BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE! amazing atmosphere thanks to the the visuals and the music which sets the scene really well. the only problem that i had with the game i that i didnt know i could possess sligs or save the mudokons at the start of the game (maybe i missed something? probably...) which caused me to have the bad ending. which was not necessarily a problem since i couldn't stop thinking about this game after the last cutscene. While replaying it was kinda a drag just for the sake of the good ending, doesn't mean it wasn't a blast! Anyway, this was an amazing experience to have and i HIGHLY suggest it to anyone looking for a challenging and tense game. 8/10
