Review

Here is a record of the ~15 minutes I played this game.

Another World
Wow, I look stoned.
Another World
A professor who drives a Ferrari, huh?
Another World
This cinematic is painfully slow. Dum dee dum…
Another World
Press action to continue?! Wtf is action?! *Pushes all the buttons* Okay, it’s Ctrl.
Another World
Wait, I just saw this part. So did I die? Oh yup, I guess I so, because I can swim to the surface. The transition from cinematic to playable was not at all obvious.
Another World
Damn, it won’t let me walk off the cliff. 🙁
Another World
Could I walk any slower? (Found out later you can run if you hold Ctrl)
Another World
Ouch, a worm thing cut my knee.
Another World
Aaaand I guess I’m dead. Bad worm.
Another World
Do I have any other controls? Doesn’t look like it.

I learned that you could get past the worms by jumping over them, but I could not for the life of me figure out how to jump over all of the worms in the second screen of worms. I could get past the first one fine, but the second and third worms kept slicing my knee open. 🙁 I wasn’t interested in this game anyway, so I gave up.

  • Games whose only instruction is to “press action” after you die without giving any indication which button that might be.
  • Retro graphics
