Great news for fans of Eric Chahi’s classic platform adventure Another World – or Out Of This World if you’re a yank – as the title has been announced for a iOS release later this year. The game was originally released in 1991 and has previous been ported to over a dozen systems including the SNES, Commodore 64, Mega Drive, Atari ST and for mobile phones, although this is yet another great excuse to catch up on Lester Knight Chaykin and his adventures in, well, another world. As games for the iPhone and iPad has a tendency to control less than perfect when it attempts to emulate retro controls it might not be the ultimate conversion but the story and the timeless graphics should be enough to take the plunge into Chahi’s masterpiece once more.
Dare I say it is… out of this world?
