Guardaba un grato recuerdo de este juego, pero ya sabemos como es la nostalgia, recordaba que era difícil pero que tenía un alma increíble que te inundaba...

Esta edición de aniversario no me ha decepcionado, los gráficos mejorados, la jugabilidad adaptada (que recuerdo que algunas cosas con las teclas eran infernales) y los extras son un tributo a uno de los grandes juegos que marcaron la historia.

He podido jugar con el mando de la xbox sin problemas, pese a mi torpeza patentada, aunque muchas veces he tenido que usar la cruceta en vez del analógico para que en vez de correr no fuera dando brinquitos como si fuera tonto.

Nada dire de la historia, porque hay que vivirla o al menos verla... Es muy evocativa y transmite muchísimo con poco y a base de detalles.

No soy un gamer, he jugado en fácil y me ha costado... He tenido que revisar en un par de ocasiones un walkthrough porque me había perdido o bloqueado, porque el juego es muy old-school y te tienes que buscar la vida y encontrar la salida a los problemas que propone, es más de puzzles que de acción como yo recordaba, pero también es verdad que en fácil salen menos enemigos (gracias por tenernos en cuenta a los torpes).

Incluso cuando me petó el juego por andar cambiando de ventana y tener varias cosas a la vez, me guardo en la última posición donde estaba y es algo que se agradece, porque pensaba que tenía que volver a empezar... Porque aunque lo difícil es saber que hacer, el hacerlo a veces tiene su miga. En esta nueva versión te graba cada poco y cuando lo acabas puedes acceder a los capítulos por si te has perdido algún logro.

No creía que me lo fuera a acabar, me animé a jugarlo además de por las recompensas de playfire porque sabía que era corto (en howlong2beat tienen puestas un par de horas aunque el walkthrough que yo he consultado apenas llega a la media hora) pero merece la pena muchísimo, porque es como una peli de acción y aventuras que te mete en el ambiente y te deja añadir los detalles que tu quieras y pese a unos gráficos tan simples (o gracias a ellos) te transmite todo el horror, el dolor, la pena, el cansancio, la violencia... en cada escena.

Los extras están muy bien, me han encantado el documental del 15 aniversario y las libretas de diseño y programación. La banda sonora la he disfrutado en el juego.

Creo que es un juego que todo el mundo debería tener e intentar jugar... Aunque sea en fácil y con ayuda de una guía... Merece la pena enfrentarte a él y ver de donde nacieron todos los demás videojuegos que jugamos hoy en día.

Lo tuve en Amiga 500 de pequeño y era uno de mis preferidos.

Había visto la edición del 15 aniversario y pensé en pilllarlo y al final no he podido resistirme a comprar la del 20 aniversario en oferta.

Aunque no sé las diferencias entre la versión del 15 y la del 20 sí se que en la del 20 existe un añadido al juego original. Apenas son 5 minutos más de juego pero resulta un añadido interesante.

En su día me lo pasé aunque con mucho esfuerzo. Es un juego que si sabes lo que hacer dura bastante poco, en 30 minutos te lo puedes pasar si sabes lo que hacer y no mueres muchas veces ya que aunque tiene puntos de control a veces hay alguna parte que se atraviesa. Si nunca lo has jugado, te puede llevar horas terminarlo salvo que uses una guía, lo cuál no recomiendo porque es más interesante intentar averiguar qué hay que hacer para seguir avanzando. En su día fue un juego bastante original.

Y aunque no es una precuela ni nada por el estilo fue el juego que hizo Delphine Sofwtare antes del famoso Flashback el cúal también destila mucha calidad.

El juego es una delicia, una bonita historia de amistad con acción y algunas situaciones donde tendrás que pararte a pensar qué hacer para seguir avanzando.

Cuenta con una buena jugabilidad, que a veces se puede volver algo frustrante si no calculas bien los saltos o las carreras a parte del uso de la pistola que tienes que ser bastante rápido para que no te maten los enemigos.

Es una joya, con sus menús en español (no tiene voces en ningún idioma) y sus logros, que aunque son pocos merece la pena para darle ese plus que merece un juego como éste.

Y si además lo pillas de oferta es más que recomendable.

8/10

Another World has been remembered for over two decades now because of the uniquely cohesive experience and sleek vectorized visuals it offers, from a time where graphics and storytelling were often terse and stilted.

While this game is short, not much longer than two hours, those two hours have been solely designed by French artist Eric Chahi, and intimate attention has been paid to the detailed backgrounds, foregrounds and animations. Pacing and level design have been carefully decided to fit the overall theme.

This comes from an era where all this fit on two floppy disks -- this entire game had to fit in just under 3MB. So while music and sound may seem sparse, and some areas seem underpopulated or underdetailed, just realize this entire game was the same size as a modern-day high-resolution background image.

As a result of being designed around these limitations, what the game does have and does do, it does very well. Another World is a game that manages to have both atmosphere and style, in a tightly-knit package.

As for the actual gameplay, it is enjoyable -- combat is intense and quick, leading to frequent deaths but the kind of feeling that will keep you on your toes. Puzzles are sometimes unusual, I think more an indication of the era the game came from -- puzzle logic even in most story-driven games for the time (point-and-click adventure games) were often unforgiving and exacting. So while this game has some odd puzzles, its quick respawns and common checkpoints often allow you to figure out the way through quickly without too much frustration from quick successive deaths.

Overall, a surprisingly unique and strong narrative for the time, relying on virtually no written or spoken word. As for it's price point: 10 dollars is not unfair to ask, and those who have played this before might be willing to drop that much for the nostalgia factor. For most other people, 10 dollars can certainly get you a lot more than two hours of gameplay. But, as a milestone in video game history, and as an experience that still stands on its own merits, it's still worth giving it your time -- it doesn't ask for much.

P.S. Another World will likely be going on seasonal sale at 2.50USD from its current 10USD price point, as it has during the Summer 2014 Steam Sale. If you're on the fence, I'd strongly recommend picking it up during the next wave of seasonal sales.

A fantastic game in which you teach yourself how to play the entire thing. Very rewarding. Not so easy, but worth playing! One of a kind.

This has been one of the best games I've ever played, and I'm not being nostalgic, I wasn't even born back when the game first came out. This being the very first time I play it.

Another World – 20th Anniversary Edition is a 2D sidescroller cinematic platformer.

You're Lester Knight Chaykin, an unexpectedly athletic physic that works alone, while in your lab, something goes wrong with your particle accelerator, and you get yourself teleported to you know where (I mean, look at the name of the game). There you must find a way to get home again, but it's not going to be an easy journey, neither one that you can make alone.

★★★★★ | Loved it

I remember this game on the amiga from my childhood with fond and frustrating memories.

This remake is true to the original with only subtle changes and an all new hard mode. The main character manages to get through the entire tale without saying a word which is fairly impressive given the minimal graphics and sound.

(Only watch this video if you dont mind SPOILERS!)

Hard die&retry sequences and visionary cinematic design make for a true classic. Even though it can be finished under 20 minutes (I dare you to achieve that, even after you've beat the game once), it belongs in a musem (and your library).

Like with any DotEmu port, this one is full of issues and crashes.
The original game sure was jolly for its time, I have very fond memories of Delphine's Flashback, and even tried the clumsy sequel Fade to Black. I'm in no way going to label the game as bad, it's just that within the two hours or so I spent with it, I had a double-digit amount of CTDs. The controls in the menu are pretty unintuitive, and while I'm at the menus, there doesn't seem to be any way to rebind keyboard or gamepad controls.


Unrelated childhood anecdote: When I got my first flightstick, I had no suitable game to use it for, so I tried to set up the various input methods on it as Flashback controls. Neither moving Conrad with the stick's analogue input itself, nor using the hat switch as movement were particularly effective.

A wonderfully artistic adventure/platformer brought to life by French programming genius Éric Chahi.

I've been trying to beat this game since I was a child.
Now I can continue that tradition in proper fasion on steam!
I'll never beat it... I can pull a 10.0 any day in any FPS..
But this game basically dressed me up as a little princess and slams a bat up my ♥♥♥♥.
I, don't, know, why. And still, I love it....
And really, I had to buy it as soon as I seen it on steam.
20th anniversary edition, wow..
Yup I'm old!

The updated graphics are honestly awkward as hell and look ugly to me, but they give you the original pixel art option. Which looks beautiful these days. Updated audio is top notch I'd say, but still prefer the original. Options are nice though right?

It's a beautiful game that has always captured my imagination and totally obliterates me everytime I try to progress through it.


Before I die.. I must finish this game. I MUST!!!

Highly reccomended to anyone.
Unique, deep story.. Classic.

Difficult. <3

This was one of the first games I ever played. I was a kid, it was derpily hard, and I didn't get that far.

It's a perfect re-creation of the original. The reworked graphics are beautiful. If you like classic games, you'll like this.

Highly recommended.

This has to be one the best games from the 1990s, if not the best. When I played this the first time on my trusty Amiga 500 I was mesmerised, spellbound, by the intro sequence. The graphics were stunning for its time and still, to this day, seem ageless in all its glory. Owning a piece of gaming history is well worth the 3 quid it costs at the moment.

A landmark in video game history. An insane immersive experience designed by Éric Chahi.

I can still remember the first time that I watched Lester walking into his laboratory and witnessing for the first time in my life such a good cinematic experience in video games. I'm still hearing the numeric password sounds and the amazing soundtrack (from my PC speaker back then) while he is executing his experiment.

It's not only about the rotoscoping animation technique that was used back then, it is also about Mr. Chahi's overall design. The gameplay and the game sequences are so well directed that they will make you experience this story at its fullest even when the game is almost silent.

An incredible piece of art.

One Sentence
Classic groundbreaking platformer that revolutionized story telling through action in video games.

A Bit More
Gorgeous art style and clever character design accompanied with smooth animation makes Another World come to life.
Gameplay is part action part puzzle solving, sometimes both at the same time. Enemies are not dime a dozen in this game and there will be some trail and error to get through them which stifles the action at times but this should not hinder your experience. There is an option to turn the HD version on so newer players who are not used to 1992 graphics can enjoy it even more.

Bottom Line
The game is a must get not just because of it's place in video games history, but also because the gameplay and the entire experience still holds up.

I never played this game for the console version. The gameplay was at times frustrating the learning curve is about 1/2 hr; but I enjoyed this 2D platformer. All achievements are attainable some can be missed but you can always go back. If you fail at a certain pont of the game at least you can pick up the gameplay from that point going forward. I was thoroughly satisfied with this game and reccommend!! This game gives me a sense of nastolgia.

8/10.

This game is a good example of "no hand holding". You are thrust into an alien environment and will need to figure out everything on your own. It is not a terribly long game -- but if you figure everything out on your own instead of looking up a walkthough, it will take a while.

You do need to approach the game with the right attitude: It is 20+ years old, so the graphics and general polish suck by modern standards. And the unapologetic lack of any hints/tutorials/popups is something that modern gamers aren't used to.

This video game is a fine piece of art. The world it creates is astonishing... The game is rather short (2 hours) but difficult enought.
