Teleported into another world!
Another World is one of the best adventure and action/puzzle combo games ever to grace us from the early 90s. It tells the story of a young man who travels, not by choice, to another world, from where he needs to escape. It's a proper adventure with action sequences. These sequences are about shooting, dodging, or are produced as puzzles. At any rate, Another World is truly original and well done. The shooting, to give just an example is done by pressing a buttons for very short amounts of time; press a button for a longer period, and you will find that instead of shooting you create an energy shield. It's a simple system but it works great in the world of the game and creates very interesting mechanics. Also, with Another World you get the chance to see spectacular, hand drawn backgrounds and really experience this new world in all its splendor. So, all in all, Another World as well as games such as Monkey Island are a culmination of the adventure genre, of the early days, when creativity was at its highs.
The game was revolutionary at the time of its release for the great cinematic video clips and the phenomenal visual graphics. The gameplay is typical platformer, with you running, jumping and mostly killing the aliens that come in your way to destroy you by any means available. The game is insanely fun to play and I was constantly amazed with the great visuals of the game. The art is beautiful and the colors are rich and full. The sound effects of the game are also very realistic and of high quality. If you like platform games, you should definitely try this game out and if you want the version that is more friendly to today's computer, you should check out the 15th Anniversary Edition. Have fun!
Seminal adventure/action combo!
You play as a character in future who accidently teleported himself (and his table) into another world (alien world). Your quest is to get back to earth thus fighting many aliends and solving puzzles. Death is very easy: just one hit from lasers or bite from aliens are enough to kill you. You're warned then, you have to play carefully!
