Review: Another World - 20th Anniversary by BulkyPix

image

I am definitely a fan of ports of older games, because they usually allow me to replay a game I really enjoyed from my past or experience a game that I never got the opportunity to try the first time around.  Another World is slightly different, though, because other than knowing that it existed I had never played it nor did I know enough about it to really be interested in playing it.  Now that I’ve spent some time with it, however, I realize that I missed out on something pretty special by letting this one pass by.  I’m just glad I’ve gotten the chance to make amends on that faux pas.



Another World available on App store!

Not trying to steal Eric Pankoke's thunder on this, but am also a big AW fan from way back, and figured we should get the word out that you can now get this fabulous game (see Eric's preview at link above, and reviews forthcoming from both of us). Go here on the app store ($4.99 currently), or read on for the full PR scoop and video trailer...
