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.

+Nothing can describe this game. So many years have passed since it's release on PSX and I find myself still playing it. It's replay value is enormous, the storyline is very well written, the puzzles are a real brain teaser the game mechanics are really great and it's overall great fun.
-The only downside is that there are no resolution and video settings to mess around and if you have no controller it can be a pain to play. It's also kinda buggy but nothing mazor.
It's really a value for money game and if you liked it, wait until the remake comes out... It's to die for...

Delightfully frustrating puzzle/platformer with a lovable character and memorable creatures. The only game where I laugh upon my 15th death after a half hour of attempting the same area.

The game has very prevalent cutscene issues (at least on Windows 8) but these can be easily fixed by following the instructions outlined here and setting "NoVideoMemory" to "2".

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.

It's rock solid, but very good. Abe is a very likeable protagonist, and the atmosphere and setting is first rate. When you fail to save a mudokan it's heartbreaking! would love to see a movie on this.
