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.

Prepare To Die Edition™

You will die. A lot. But it never gets too frustrating (thanks to a mostly forgiving checkpoint system), and you'll give yourself a pat on the back once you realize what you're doing wrong.

This is how a remake/remaster of an old game should be done! First, you get the original creator of the game to work on it, none other. He still has the original files of the game programmed on the Amiga, so what he does is this: he loads an amiga emulator in the present to open the original files and edit them...yeah....

Then you try to upgrade the game in every possible way...without changing the game (!!!) Meaning, this is still the original game, the same gameplay and sequences of the original. The graphics are still made the same way of the original (commodore amiga polygons) but taking advantage of modern hardware, putting unlimited color, 1080p resolution, upgrading the sound effects and music to digital where you can, replaying the music in high quality, and just leaving the few voices in game just as they were. Adding tiny details in the backgrounds screens whenever possible without changin the original... and on top of that, you just add the option to push a button in game to look instantly the original non remastered version to see how it all changed (and not changed at the same time) in all levels.

This is how you make a remake (remaster) of a game. I still won't pay full price for a 20 years old game... but with a little discount it's a total steal.
I say this because ive played the original another world in it's sega megadrive inception, in 1993, so if i buy a 20+ years game, that i loved, it's because i want to have that same game, no other modern sh...but at the same time i want to have maybe (if possible) some perks, some upgrades, that bring the original to modern age gaming (besides being compatible with current computers).

This 20th anniversary edition does all that. Totally recommended if you played the original. If you didn't ,also recommended , as a trip to the origins of adventure gaming, and as a different experience.

So fun to play this again. I remember playing it in the 90's when it came to the Amiga 500.
