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?

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

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.

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 Abe's Oddysee, Abe's Exoddus has an action/puzzle style and keeps many elements from the last game including GameSpeak, possession and throwing. However, the GameSpeak feature is greatly improved, allowing you to call several Mudokons a a time rather than the original one.

The NPCs also have emotional/physical states which affect their responses and actions towards the player. Mudokons can come in a variety of different emotion ranges including angry, depressed or wired. You have the option to tell the NPCs to stop what they are doing, tell them you're sorry or to slap them. Mudokons can also now be 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. Abe must again save a number of Mudokons from slavery and prevent the Glukkons from manufacturing their tainted products. The voice acting is also good and the dialogue is funny. Characters such as Abe and Big Face return and new characters such as the Three Weirdos and Alf make their first appearance.

There is also a great improvement to the save system being that you no longer need to reach checkpoints to save your game. There is a save and quicksave feature which you can load back into at any time to continue progress or rectify mistakes.

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.

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

In Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus, you play as Abraham the shriveled blue prune and it is your main duty to slaughter as many of yourses mudokon friends as possible. You get bonus points for killing the blind ones and get even MORE points for slapping the depressed ones until they fall over and DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11!!11!!!uno!!11!! like O. M. G. It's one GRAND adventure of a video game this is right 'ere

A-♥♥♥♥ing-mazing platformer from my childhood that has aged very well. The game gets steadily harder and fastpaced the more you advance into the story and saving all 300 mudokons ain't no easy task even when you have quicksave.
