Revisit Another World on iOS

By Jessica Citizen, Friday, 23 September 2011 09:59 GMT

It’s only fitting that some of the most fabulous retro games are getting a new lease of life on some of the most fabulous new technology – case in point: The 20th anniversary re-release of classic platformer Another World, which has just been launched for iOS.

Developed by Eric Chahi (who’s been in the news recently as the creator of not-a-God-game From Dust), Another World was known as Out of This World in North America and Outer World in Japan. It’s kind of a big deal, inspiring countless developers and pleasing gamers around the world with its (then) innovative sound, graphics and cut-scenes.

If you missed it the first time around, now’s your chance. Step into the shoes of Lester Knight Chaykin, a young scientist thrown through space by a bit of a nuclear mishap. There are monsters and earthquakes and puzzles (oh my!), and you’ll need skill and logic to get through this one.

It claims to have been redesigned “to fit iOS gaming standards and young gamers’ expectations” too, which is darling. Another World is currently available in the App Store for $5.49.
