About This Game

Abe's peaceful retirement was shattered when visited by a vision from the Mudokon Spirit Guides. Abe™ learned the Magog Cartel was mining Necrum, the sacred Mudokon city of the dead, to collect bones to make super-addictive SoulStorm Brew.

After freeing the Mudokon spirits imprisoned in the Mudanchee and Mudomo Vaults, Abe gained scary powers from the Spirit Guides, including the ability to heal his Mudokon friends of Soul-Storm addiction, and the power to turn invisible. Infiltrating the transportation hub of FeeCo Depot, and using explosive farts to survive adventures at the Slig Barracks and Bonewerks, Abe broke into SoulStorm Brewery.

There Abe learned the truth behind the secret ingredient of SoulStorm Brew . . . just before blasting the place to atoms with the combined power of the sobered-up Mudokon he'd rescued. Then Abe joined his brew-addled pals at Alf's Rehab & Tea to take the cure - the journey of a lifetime starts with one step. Or is it twelve?

A charming and challenging old-school platformer from the late nineties that still holds up today.

Dark, witty and humorous to a fault - Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus is a must own.

Unlike Abe’s Oddysee, I have no childhood nostalgia with this game. So it comes hard for me to admit that Abe’s Exoddus is a much better game in terms of structure. Like most second entries in a video game series, Exoddus heavily improves upon the original’s platformer-puzzle formula by adding new mechanics and obstacles for you to overcome. The added quick save and “All of ya!” command are easily the best new features, with the different Mudukon types and possessable creatures being a close second. A great example of a good sequel, Abe’s Exoddus does a fantastic job at continuing the series while still offering unique elements that keep it distinct from the rest.

To those who have played Dark Souls and said that that game is hard, have obviously never played Oddworld.

2. GameSpeak allows you to talk to your Mudokon buddies, making for some ingenious puzzles
3. The platforming is great
4. You can possess the enemies and wreck their s**t
5. It's funny as s**t

7. The story is great
8. The GameSpeak was expanded from the 1st game to the creatures you can possess, allowing for even more puzzles
9. It's only $2.50
10. YOU CAN POSSESS YOUR OWN F**KING FARTS!

So buy this game.

This game is like a steak. You eat one and love every minute of it. Then you eat another, and another, and another until you get fat. Then you cry yourself to sleep everynight.



Unless you're vegetarian.

Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus is a landmark game, and worthy sequel to the original Abe's Oddysee.

Even in its now-limited screen resolution, the strong visual design of Abe's Exoddus shines through. Don't expect to run this game at your native resolution (unless you never upgraded beyond 800x600 - in which case, you're in luck!), but do expect the following: some fantastic and challenging platforming gameplay; a vast number of gorgeous levels interwoven with an interesting, dark and downright odd narrative; some brilliant music which changes dynamically depending on the events taking place; and finally, some fiendish puzzles which make use of Abe's talent for posession and the use of GameSpeak - a system by which you can instruct other characters to whatever ends you desire, be it salvation or something more nefarious.

If you've played it before, there's no better time to return to the original Oddworld titles before enjoying the delights of the HD Remake, New N' Tasty, which recreates the events of the original game in a modern game engine and is "coming soon". If you're new to the series, don't be put off by the age or initial difficulty curve. Exoddus has a quick save system, so you'll never lose progress as long as you're diligent. A must-play!

You've got to understand... I picked up this $2.49 game for 4 reasons:

1. Its cheap as
2. Its an ultimate classic (ps1)
3. Its only 500 mb download.
4. Suspensive. In fact so suspensive you'll need to put a bowl under your seat or something.

If your computer runs on poos and you feel left out, then get it or wait till it goes on sale and pick it up for 1.99!

The oddworld series has been out since the first playstation, I myself has been a big fan of oddworld. This game however was my favorite out of all of them, and even to this day Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus has been my favorite. I enjoy old school games like this, it was the only fun think to play when I was younger. It has been an amazing platformer from my childhood.

A great sequel to a great game.

Like Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, Abe's Exoddus is an action/puzzle style game that keeps many elements from the last game including the revolutionary GameSpeak, allowing you to talk to other characters and is vital to the game's completion which has been greatly improved since the first game.

The interactive NPCs from the first game also have a new emotional/physical state feature which affect their responses and actions towards the player when interacted with GameSpeak. Oddworld-unique Mudokons can come in a variety of different emotion ranges such as depressed or drunk. You have the option to tell the NPCs to stop what they are doing, tell them you're sorry or slap them when they get too high on happy gas. Due to the story, some Mudokons are now also blind and only respond to commands coming from a certain direction.

Once again, the storyline is brilliant and keeps to the same subtle anti-corporatism theme from the first game. Abe must again save a number of fellow Mudokon creatures from slavery and prevent the corrupt Glukkon species from manufacturing their tainted products. The voice acting is kept to the same high standard as the first game and the dialogue is well written to the point of being entertaining. Abe, the only character in video game history that could perform fart puzzles, returns along with the spirit Three Weirdos, drunken Alf and chief Big Face.

There is also a great improvement to the save system being that you no longer need to reach checkpoints to save your game. You can now save on demand and even perform QuickSaves in-game at any moment to continue if you mess up later.

I can see no downsides to this game and I would strongly recommend it to fans or strangers of the Oddworld franchise and fans of 2D games.

10/10.

Oh my goodness is this game amazing

I remember the first i played this game as a kid, and from that memory I remember being stuck in one place all the time, and then i lost it. Thankfully steam is to the rescue(nine years later) and now I can finally beat the game.

First things first let me just say this game is HARD, REALLY HARD. You will die a lot especially when you are trying to save mudokons.

The art is amazing, really pleasing and gorgeous, reminds me of donkey kong and 2.5d art combined.

The story is also really good, I won't say it though.

Humour: Absolutely hilarious, it has very good jokes.

Characters: Really odd(pun intended) There's Abe, glukkons, paramites, scrabs and fleeches. Quite likable

Music: Mystifying

Overall, I really like oddworld, though it's not for everyone, especially with it's difficulty.

9/10
