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 ^^

One of the first games I ever played in ye olde times of Amiga and unsliced bread, Another World is one of the giants of that era, standing tall over other games at that time for its art style and cinematics - both in real-time and in cutscenes.

The basic premise of the story (if you aren't aware of it) is scientist Lester Knight Chaykin (weird name huh) went to work, experimenting at what appears to be a cyclotron facility. A lightning storm interferes with the particle accelerator, there is an explosion, and Lester finds himself and his desk on another planet.

This Anniversary Edition is good in that it retains the art style of the original game. The graphics are a bit chunky, but pleasing to the eye - if you can put up with Minecraft graphics then this is even better. I have it on Windows 7 and have experienced no issues, which is miles better than trying to play it on an old, glitchy Amiga, where you're trying to figure out which Kickstart disk will actually get it to boot.

For its time, Another World pushed the boundaries. Even though there is very little music, what there is has been done well, helping to immerse gamers with passable sound effects and beautiful scenery.

So bam, you're in this new, strange world. Thankfully the controls are easy enough to work out. Direction controls, jumping, sprint, and attacking. It's a world full of dangers, and there are various ways to die, but I wouldn't say it's hard.

It can be made trivial these days with the ease of access to guides and walkthroughs through the internet, but Another World's interface was very much a 'work-it-out-for-yourself' at original release. There is no HUD of any sort, except a breath meter when you're underwater. There are no clues as to where to go next, or how to do it. Even the aliens speak another language, as you would expect.

It can sometimes take a bit to get used to the controls - the laser pistol itself is complex enough. Rapidly tapping fire will shoot numerous lasers, holding it down briefly and then releasing will form a brief energy shield in front of the tip of the gun, and holding the trigger for a while before releasing fires an epic laser bolt. Naturally the enemies you encounter have the same options available to them, thus combat can get tricky fast if you don't know what you are doing. Enemies also have plasma grenades that can roll straight past shields - while I've heard Lester gains access to them later in the game I've never used it.

The gameplay is broken up into several types, not just combat though. There is escaping from jail, rolling through air ducts, messing around with the weapon controls inside a tank, running away from a tidal wave, kicking aliens between the legs ... it has stood the test of time admirably, and is truly fun in every sense of the word.

If you've never played such a classic, old game, then here's a place to test your tastes. Whether you like it or not, you will walk away enriched by your experience.

Old-School fast paced action-platformer. An icon in the PC gamining and a pearl you can't miss as gamer.
Play it twice, first time with low details (old pixellated graphic) and then with high details (new graphic with fancy and beautiful backgrounds); the only thing is that without PC-Speaker sounds it doesn't give the same good feeling.
