"Another One"
-DJ Khaled

this was the biggest deal when it released
besides sports, platformers & fighting games
you did not get many action adventure games

Another World was original & groundbreaking

we had not expienced anything like it
back in the plastic age

i am not going to tell you it holds up
but it certainly shows how far we have come

floods me with great memories
we were completely invested in the story
the world and its inhabitants

we used to call that big white alien guy "Sausage"
for some odd reason

i think cuz he looked like he was made of sausage
oooh k

Solid little classic game. The style is well executed and it manages to convey quite a lot without words. It has its fair share of issues, though, so don't go into without fully accepting the fact that this is an old game. The most obvious issue is the 'action button', which is generally used to shoot, but instead causes you to run if you're holding a directional key, or to set up a laser shield thing if you hold it down, or to fire a destructive blast if you hold it down longer. When the second half of the game requires some fancy combat maneuvering, this becomes a problem. The checkpoints also start out fairly forgiving, but there are some annoyingly long stretches later on where one mistake (that you often can't see coming) sends you quite a distance back. That said, if you enjoy classic games, this is definitely worth a look.

Another World (a.k.a. Out of this World in the U.S.A.)

Developed by Eric Chahi and released in 1991. It's awesome!

Trivia question: ever heard of Mycaruba? You guessed right - it's from Another World.

One of the three lines that appear in the story, delivered by an alien humanoid ally after breaking out of jail, is Matsuba. No translation exists but the most commonly associated one is well done or good job. - I just drivelled on and on and tried to put some intention into it. - says Eric in The Making Of video. Despite being played backwards it is the most iconic equivocal in the history of video games.

The game had it's 10th, 15th and 20th anniversary editions. It's the first title to introduce complex vector graphics animations. Combined with an already know and loved rotoscopy (tracing actors frame by frame from a video recording, see: Prince of Persia) it was considered stunning for many years to come. By many, it still is.

It took six days to create the Earth. Another World took two years.

This game is brutal. So much more unforgiving than I remembered. But it's so good! I love it.

It's amazing how it's just as much fun now as it was in the early 90s.

25 years after release, this could now be called a simple platformer. But it's not your average platformer, and the simple yet challenging gameplay just works.

I also like that you can play in short bursts. So many games these days you need a 1+ hour free to even make it worth a launch. With this game you can launch it, play for 5-10 minutes, and come back to it later. Exceptional time-filler in that regard!

Now I just need Flashback (the original remastered, not the ♥♥♥♥ remake) and my life would be complete! For a while at least :P

a game about death and failure.

Well kids, that's what games used to be back then.
Try, die, repeat!

- move to next screen: you die.
- don't move: you die.
- move to slow: you die.
- controls are crappy: you die.
- ?: you die.

Death by animals, aliens, laser, water, getting impaled, tentacles, poison, hot steam, falling rocks, no reason.

I loved this on my Amiga 500. And I never stopped loving it.

I don't know if this game was any good in 1990 or not, didn't play it then. In 2016, though, it is terrible. Random death after random death, trial by error over and over again to get anywhere.

The name "Another World" sounds like it should be a sequel to "World" but there is no game called "World" as far as I am aware.

I was six when I first played this, so probably didn't have much critical analysis to offer at the time, but I do remember falling in love with the game. It was hard not to love games for just being games though, they were all still so new and fascinating then. But even with that irrespective, it iraised a bar for conveying a story in a game medium without making you sit through pages of words.

More people need to play this, if for nothing else than to re-anchor what we want from games. I don;t want to be told I'm in another world, I want to 'feel' as though I am. Amazing how a game almost as old as me is still one of the few that can do this.

Fun and difficult platformer with really creative setpieces and art. It looks beautiful in both the original graphics and in the remastered mode. It left me wanting more in a good way.

It's amazing how a game that was revolutionary in 1991 can still hold up in the present. Granted the graphics are not what people are used to but it really doesn't matter with this game. The mechanics are quite simple yet the game itself is not. It's a good thing you get unlimited retries because you will need them. The story is simple but engaging, you are trapped on another world surrounded by all kinds of peril and you'll want to escape, along with your buddy. It feels a bit as if you're playing in a science-fiction movie. I would highly recommend this to both old and young gamers.

Man ist das Spiel schwer...
Ich will nicht wissen, was meine Nachbarn von mir dachten, als ich immer wieder nach jedem Tod rumgeschrien habe, als würde ich gerade wirklich massakriert werden.
Mal hab ich in meiner Wut die falschen Tasten gedrückt, wodurch ich wieder in eine Situation kam, durch die ich starb oder ganz simpel, ich wusste nicht was mich als nächstes erwartet und bin in den nächsten Abschnitt reingerannt und gestorben.
Kurz gesagt: Bringt ein paar starke Nerven mit. Dieses Spiel ist FRUSTRIERND!

Die Story ist simpel: Man landet nach einem gescheitertem Experiment in einer anderen Welt und versucht der feindlich gesonnenen Bevölkerung wieder nach Hause zu entkommen. Ich habe knapp 2h gebraucht. Zugegeben ich habe auch einen Guide verwendet, weil ich zu häufig aufgeschmissen war und nicht wusste was ich machen muss. Denn das Spiel gibt keine Hinweise auf die weitere Vorgehensweise im Level, was nicht unbedingt schlecht ist, Casual-Spieler aber abschrecken könnte.

Negativ am Spiel aufgefallen ist mir die Steuerung (gespielt mit XBOX360 Controller). Dadurch, dass springen sowohl auf "B" als auch "Linker Stick hoch" gelegt ist, passiert es schon öfter mal, dass man mittendrin springt und, wie sollte es auch anders sein, in etwas tödliches hinengerät. Das frustriert.

Toll wiederum ist, dass man jederzeit mit "Y" den Grafikstil wechseln kann. Entweder die Pixel-Grafik aus dem Original von 1991 oder zur aufgehübschten HD-Variante von heute.

Ich hab's mir im Sale gekauft und muss sagen, dass ich zufrieden mit dem Spiel war. Es war wirklich schwierig, aber hat dennoch Spaß gemacht, aufgrund des Erfolgserlebnisses endlich weitergekommen zu sein.

Für Achievement-Hunter: Ohne große Mühe im ersten Walkthrough 100%. Einziger Knackpunkt ist das UFO Achievement, aber findet das mal selber oder mit 'nem Guide raus ^^

Meine Fresse, waren das Zeiten. Wenn man sich überlegt, dass man für diese Schote auf SNES-Cartridge damals anno 1991 fast 125 DM gezahlt hat. Wenn man sich das Spiel heute ansieht fragt man sich ehrlich, für was eigentlich hatte man damals soviel Kohle gelöhnt? Jedenfalls ist das Spiel vom Levelaufbau und Design wirklich nicht kompliziert. Im Nachhinein fällt einem nur wieder negativ auf, dass die Kollisionsabfrage der Eingabegeräte- genau wie damals - eigentlich eine Frechheit ist. Ich habe es gerade mit einem XBOX-360-Controller durchgedaddelt; und es war einfach wieder ein Gewürge. Die Entwickler gehören sich eigentlich für diese bescheidene Umsetzung der Eingaben immer noch in heißem Öl frittiert.

Wie auch immer: Aufgrund des Nostalgie-Faktors gebe ich hier mal einen Daumen nach oben!

Aber Vorsicht: Jüngeren Gamern kann dieses Spiel leider nichts bieten, außer Frust.

Natürlich ist dieses Spiel heute nicht mehr zeitgemäß, in keinerlei Hinsicht. Es zeigt vor allem sehr eindrucksvoll wie frustrierend Spiele zur damaligen Zeit mitunter sein konnten.
Stichwörter: Trial and Error, unfaire Stellen und mies platzierte Speicherpunkte.

Aber hey, jedem der Another World damals gespielt hat, jedem den damals schon das Intro vollkommen weggeblasen hat, jedem der ob der fillmreifen Inszenierung vor Spannung vorm (via TV-Adapter am Amiga angeschlossenem) Mini-Fernseher umher gerückt ist, wird Another World einen wohliges nostalgisches Gefühl bescheren.
Dafür lohnt sich der Kauf!
