    Rescue your fellow meat factory slaves in this nostalgic, classic platformer with the latest immersive graphics and design.

    Find your destiny

    Once a happy floor waxer in Oddworld's biggest meat processing plant, Abe stumbled across his boss's secret plan to turn the factory's slave labour force into the latest in the RuptureFarms Tasty Treats line of novelty meat snacks.

    Abe now has to save his own skin from the grinders even if simply escaping the flesh farm is only the start of his Oddysee. Trigger-happy hunting parties, carnivorous sacred beasts, ancient temple traps and even a return to his former workplace await Abe on his journey to discover his people's heritage.

    Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is a game that is sure to make faithful fans of the series happy and bring in new fans too. It’s a unique 2D platforming puzzle adventure that the community needed a good reminder that it exists. Although the controls can get a little out of hand even after playing for a while, the story and gameplay give the game a unique charm that I haven’t seen in most platforming games for a long time. Abe and the Mudokons are some wacky characters that I won’t be forgetting anytime soon and hope to see more remakes and new installments from Oddworld Inhabitants soon! But for now, Oddworld: Abe’s Odysee really is New ‘n’ Tasty!

    Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New 'n' Tasty is a great remake, also now available on Nintendo Switch. If you want to try this classic, this edition is definitely a good choice.

    Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is a great adventure platformer that is now accessible on Switch. It’s definitely showing its age in terms of controls and design, but it still holds up all these years later. Nothing has changed in this release, so it might not be worth playing through again if you already have, but if you haven’t, this is the best time to join Abe and make your escape.

    Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee - New'n'Tasty! arrives on Nintendo Switch not exactly in top form, offering a visually more sacrificed version than some of the editions seen previously.

    A few smart upgrades and gorgeous visuals give Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty a fantastic modern-day shine, and the smart puzzle platforming gameplay and dark sense of humour remain intact. While this port isn’t quite new anymore, it’s definitely still tasty.

    Not all the fans may think New ‘n’ Tasty is a faithful representation of the original, but for the newcomers - it sure is a good starting point. While waiting for the Soulstorm, it's a great opportunity to play the Switch port of the 6 years old remake of the 23 years old game - on the go.

    We realise it's not a popular outlook. Games should generally be appreciated for what they are rather than blasted for what they're not, but that's very difficult to do in this case. New 'n' Tasty is an acceptable imitation of Abe's Oddysee, but nothing more. It has its moments of inspiration – the Stockyards stage is so beautifully realised that it can momentarily trigger that "this is what I remember the original looking like!" false memory – but it's not enough to make up for the frustrations that come from the many, many unnecessary changes. Even the sound of Abe's chant, which once sounded mystical and otherworldly, now just sounds like babbling. We're very torn. As this is the only way to play Abe's Oddysee on Switch, we begrudgingly recommend it. But we do so with our arms folded, and pouting. Harrumph.

    I wasn't convinced firstly, but after more or less than one hour, I get used to this remaster. It can be difficult to move with analogs,I wasn't convinced firstly, but after more or less than one hour, I get used to this remaster. It can be difficult to move with analogs, especially for those, who played old versions on PC and keyboard... Anyway, the game looks really good and developers did a reallly god job to change the visual aspects. But the models of Scrabs, Slogs and Paramites was better in original. Now they aren't even scary, and moves artificially.

    Now the game is "fluent", the sidescroll idea is gone BUT there are too many loading screens imo, especially in Rapture Farms beginning level.

    The game is now much easier than before. You can use quick saves and quick loads. Abe has a health bar and can restore it. And the biggest change, according to original version from 97' is that Abe can now talk to more than one Mudokon at a time... It means that most levels aren't a challenge now, and you can complete them and save all Mudokons on a first/second try. XD

    I think that the "old version" still has the spirit and I encourage you to play it first - in case you don't have experience in Oddworld series, and would to try it !#
