    The puzzles in this platformer are unforgiving-expect to die a lot-but rarely too mind-bending. The basically non-verbal story is energetic and thrilling, and in spite of a relatively short amount of gameplay (one or two hours for many) Another World still feels like a standard-setter in action-game design.

    For those who owned Another World in the 90s, the 20th Anniversary version for iOS is a boon as it adds new challenges while remaining just as intriguing as it did back then.

    Getting through Another World is not a cakewalk; it's a difficult and challenging game.

    One of Another World's largest shortcomings, which is really a product of its original design, is that it's more of an exercise in repetition than actual skill.

    Real attention has been paid to making sure justice has been down to this handheld version. Everything you loved about the 1991 release is here to savour, and the game has translated surprisingly well to the iPhone. Just beware the crazy difficulty.

    If you're from the crowd that remembers it the first time around, you'll get the chance to revisit an artful and wonderfully atmospheric gaming oddity filled with sudden deaths and clever set-pieces. If you're new to it, you're probably in for an hour or so of intrigued confusion, followed by a quick trip to a FAQ.

    A lovingly remastered version of an iconic game, but sadly one that will only frustrate and annoy when not viewed through rose-tinted spectacles.

    I played this game for the first time on my Ipad, without any feelings of nostalgia toward it biasing my opinion, and I absolutely loved it. The gameplay is awesome and the atmosphere is immersive. The story is conveyed extremely well. It's not as hard to beat as some people say it is, just make sure to explore and experiment. It is challenging, but well worth it. Expand

    Best story telling in a game I have ever found. The gameplay never gets repetitive. The graphics and sciece fiction ambiance are amazing considering the limitations of the original time of release. On top of that everything feels cool. All of it is achieved thanks to the amazing creativity of the producers and the will to break with norms and commercial imperatives. Expand

    I cannot endorse this game enough. In a market where games are all about as much possible playtime for hours and hours of mindless entertainment, it's hard to come across a game like this. This is the pinnacle of game design. There is no forced tutorial, and only an optional controls screen (which is completely unnecessary because of how well the game teaches you the controls by itself). The story telling is fantastic. It's insanely difficult to tell such an endearing and exciting story without using any dialogue or names for each character. It's the most pure storytelling I've ever encountered. It may not be complex, but it's dang good. But most importantly, this game is fun. There is no overused game mechanic. The entire short experience brings new things every second. This game is fantastic. I love it. Best hour of a game I've ever played. Expand

    Terrible... Let's all have fun kicking worms and getting chased by dark monsters while having to avoid the same worms. Oh and don't worry if the worms bite you, you'll just have to replay the same scene a million times till you get it right.

    If you have a good story to tell just write a book about it or make a cartoon out of it. Adding stupid controls to a cartoon and having the player play the same scene a hundred times till he gets it right is not what I call a "game".

    I really wonder why this was remaid, there are tens of amazing games from the same age that just don't get on your nerves in the first 5 minutes. I don' understand how people can give this a positive rating. I love lots of old games but this simply sucks.
