Info over het spel

Another World, ook bekend als Out Of This World™, is een pionier in het actie-/platformer-genre dat sinds zijn debuut in 1991 op meer dan een dozijn systemen is uitgekomen. Gedurende de jaren heeft Another World™ een cultstatus bereikt bij zowel critica als geraffineerde gamers.

Another World™ vertelt het verhaal van Lester Knight Chaykin, een jonge geleerde die door ruimte en tijd wordt geworpen vanwege een nucleair experiment dat verkeerd verloopt. In een buitenaardse, onbewoonbare wereld zul je tal van alienmonsters moeten ontwijken, te slim af moeten zijn, en verslaan, terwijl je een omgeving overleeft die net zo gevaarlijk is als je vijanden. Je zult alleen met de perfecte samensmelting van logica en behendigheid voorbij de dodelijke obstakels die op je wachten kunnen komen.

Belangrijkste onderdelen:

  • Geremasterde presentatie: een samenwerking tussen visionair spelontwerper Eric Chahi en ontwikkelaar DotEmu is Another World terug in zijn 20th Anniversary Edition, met High Definition-graphics die trouw blijven aan het originele ontwerp.

Jordan Mechner, Steve Meretzky, Roberta Williams...Eric Chahi.

If you don't know who Eric Chahi is, or why I breathe his name with a palpable aura of reverence, buy this game immediately. This is an enduring piece of computer game history that remains as beautiful, stark, striking and unique today as it was when it burst onto the scene in 1991. This is a landmark computer game.

So what, you say? So was Doom, and very few of us are still playing it today. So was DONKEY.BAS, the famous early IBM game with the racecar switching lanes to avoid burros in the road. So was the Crowther and Woods Adventure. The history of computer games is littered with significant milestones, making for a very cluttered highway to the past. Right. I understand. But when you find one that's still fresh and avant-garde exactly as it is, today? You could drop Another World into the indie game market anew, and it'd still turn heads and inspire conversations. The adjective "timeless" is overused, but this game is truly timeless.

It's an action adventure game. There are no instructions. You're meant to jump in, blind, and interact with the world around you as a mystery. There's no inventory, and precious few 'save points.' You used to be a scientist working with a particle accelerator, driving a Ferrari, then...well, something happened, and you ended up Somewhere Else. Somewhere bleak, hostile, cold and inhospitable to its denizens, let alone to an outsider. What does it all mean? You will never be told. You'll never receive an explanation, never encounter a single creature who speaks or understands your language. You will interact with many objects, and figure out what they are and how they work on your own. Good luck! You'll need it.

This is Eric Chahi. This, right here, is what this man does so very, very well. The immersive simple-controls action adventure game, set in a bleakly alien other world. Chahi is Bill Watterson's noir doppelganger -- the stylized clifftops and mesas of Spaceman Spiff cartoons become bleak obelisks in a desolate and hostile natural wasteland. His ecosystems are shadowy and predatory, but tantalizing. Exploration into a very nasty and hostile Mother Nature's parlor has never been so deliciously tempting.

When we played the original Broderbund Karateka, Mechner's freshman masterpiece, there was always a bit of dread wonder as to what would come down the pike, what would be waiting to meet us and attack us. He was the inventor, as far as I know, of the video game cutscene, and Karateka was one of the first games to introduce us to enemies "down the way," seen before they were encountered directly. But while Mechner foreshadowed, Chahi *teased*. His natural "other world" was silent, grinning, waiting for you to get stuck in its deadly web, and it offered you few if any clues as to how to survive it.

If you made it to the second scene of Another World, you felt quite accomplished.

There are few rest points to breathe. The action is breakneck and maddening. You will feel the protagonist Lester's heart pound and his lungs ache from exertion. You will savor the first quiet moment and rest, because you'll need it! This game is short not only because it's an older game, but because the player couldn't endure hours and hours of it on end. If trial and error in realtime isn't your thing, if repeating the same scenes over and over to get them just right frustrates you, if you want the game to work with you as opposed to standing over you silently and smirking...this may not be your action-adventure game. If you want the game to end with all questions answered and all mysteries put to rest, this is definitely not your game. What you learn about this amazing and very thoroughly developed alien world, you will have to infer from your breakneck trip through it, unguided. You will be left with many, many questions.

The game "Limbo" could never have happened without Chahi's work in its cultural DNA.

It really doesn't matter if this game is "for you" or not -- it's a legend, and a work of art that every gamer ought to engage, at least once in his or her life. Love or hate the White Album, you have to have listened to it to call yourself a fan of rock music. This is the Mona Lisa of action-survival games of the 16-bit Renaissance, and the fact that it stands as a great game twenty years later, with only minor updates to address the huge resolution jump in modern displays, is telling. Check this out. Even if it's not your thing, it's a game you should know about, and that everyone should own.

Okay this game is kinda hard for me to rate but I will give it thumbs up since it is a game that is both sophisticated as stated and hard at some points due to cheap deaths, so its trial and error at some points. Controls are sometimes hard to control when you are being chased and the jumps can lead to deaths if not careful.

You play as Lester, a young scientist who has an invention gone wrong and you get teleported to "Another World" where you must find a way back through the worlds inhospitable enviornment. You get a blaster that has three functions of shooting and one for a shield as you battle aliens and animals alike.

It is a great game from its day, no doubt. But it is definatly not worth the $10 in my opinion, because I am not very good at this game but it took me a little under an hour to complete, if you are really an expert and know what you are doing, it will only take 20 minutes or less to beat. Very great for its time and still holds that for today. Just wish they had the sequel as well included in this pack instead of one. So thank you to Eric Chahi, the one man band for this game.
I would recommend for anyone who loves a challenge or just want to get all the achievements.

Well, that took me back to 1991, when I owned an Amiga 500 and an Atari joystick! Its hard to belive that was 23 years ago, and the game is still great. The graphics, animation and ambiance was ahead of its time back then, if your an old fart like me wanting to recapture your youth, or just interested in the classics then I highly recomend this if you have never played it.

One of the first, is not the very first, games that made you feel you are playing a movie or a comic. As a narrative experience is a complete masterpiece, an art piece in bits, with an exquisite design, setting, action and scenes. As a game its major flaws is the lack of response in the control, understandable by the time, but not in this re-edition, that can become a very frustrating experience, and more than once would make you want to throw the whole PC through the windows. The comic like level design also force you to do exactly as the developers thought in order to complete an scene, so basically no level of freedom here. Even if you die 10,000 times like me, it won’t last for more than 3 hours, so you should definitely give it a try.

Another World (Known as Out of This World in 1991)is one of those nostalgic oddballs that you never expected to be re-drawn. The game puts you in the shoes of a scientist Lester Knight Chaykin. A lightening strike messes up one of his experiments and he is transported to a brutal alien sci-fi world, where he is pushed into fleeing from the alien inhabitants with the help of an unsuspected new friend. This is basically all the game has to offer story wise, but this isn't an issue as the game doesn't need an amazing story for you to stay interested.

The new art style is beautiful. While the game always had a beautiful art style, the 20th anniversary edition cleans up a lot of the pixels and replaces it with jaw dropping smooth backgrounds bringing a breath of fresh air to the cult classic. Although the few characters the game has may seem basic in design, they still offer charm and hold true to the original game. A smart choice the devs of the 20th anniversary edition made, was allowing the players the ability to turn the classic graphics on, for all those that get a nostalgic boner replaying it in its purest form.

Now of course before you go out and buy the game, I must warn you. This game is very veryy hard, and expect to die and die again. Now for this game I would recommend using walkthroughs whenever you get stuck as there is many different paths you can go down that may get you confused and frustrated. Hell even if you use a walkthrough I'm sure you are still going to have a little bit of trouble with this game. Frustration aside, the hard difficulty is very rewarding whenever you finish a puzzle, and it won't feel like you've wasted your time when you reach the end of this journey. With a walkthrough you should be able to finish the game in around 1 hour (Unfortunately it is quite short) and I imagine without a walkthrough the game would last you maybe a couple more hours... Maybe. But to me the game is worth it.
