A botched nuclear experiment sends young physicist Lester Knight Chaykin on an inter-dimensional trip to a strange new world, one ravaged by earthquakes and inhabited by hostile aliens. Alone in an unfamiliar place, Chaykin will have to use his sharp intellect and quick-thinking skills to survive the many obstacles placed in his path. In addition to a variety of action-oriented, environmental-based puzzles to solve, the game also includes some combat sequences. Chaykin can either engage in hand-to-hand battles or equip a multi-functional laser pistol. Moves are otherwise limited to jumping, ducking, and running. In development for two years, Out of This World features an atmospheric presentation with polygonal graphics brought to life with a technique called rotoscoped animation. There is no visible interface, no dialogue sequences, and the camera will zoom, scale, and pan at various points to give the action a cinematic feel.
A young physics professor named Lester conducts a particle experiment. Suddenly, something goes wrong, a lightning strikes, and in a moment Lester finds himself in a strange alien world. Now he must fight for his life, first with his bare hands, then with a gun he finds. But what gives him courage is that he is not alone. One of the aliens who escapes from the prison together with him helps him on his dangerous quest. Friendship can overcome all the obstacles.Another World (Out of This World in the US) combines shooting, platforming, and puzzle-solving elements. The game is divided into stages; some of them are straightforward and can only be accessed one time, while others are connected to each other, constituting a larger environment. Exploration and problem-solving are emphasized. Many levels include challenges not seen in the previous ones. Tasks may involve environmental puzzles, timed sequences, precise jumping, and combat.Typically, enemies are defeated by using an energy gun found in an early stage. The gun's regular function is shooting energy projectiles. By pressing down and holding the fire button the player can activate an energy shield which protects Lester from regular attacks, allowing him to fire from relative safety until it evaporates. Finally, by holding the fire button even longer the gun creates powerful blasts which can disrupt shields. Most enemies are equipped with similar guns and are able to perform the same actions as Lester. Fighting enemies therefore requires tactical usage of regular attacks, shields, and bombs, as well as learning enemy patterns.Each level can be accessed by typing a code the player learns after having completed the level. If Lester dies, the level must be restarted. There is no on-screen interface and no in-game dialogue in the game. Vector graphics are used for creating the game's environments and animated cutscenes.
Another World was one of those games that made you go "wooow" with your mouth wide open. The intro and cutscenes were amazing for the time it was made. Digital PC speaker sound, excellent quality polygon graphics and fluid animation are only some of the distinctive features of this game.
You play the role of a young physicist who is conducting some kind of particle test. In the middle of the experiment, lightning strikes the accelerator, turns into some sort of ball and collides with the particles. The result? You suddenly end up in another world! To make things more interesting, there will be all kinds of monsters, creepy-crawlies and even aliens making your life miserable.
The game is basically action-based, with some elements of adventure and tactical planning. It is extremely long, and can sometimes get frustrating during long levels. After each completed level, you are supplied with a code for accessing the next one, so you don't have to start from the beginning every time. As I have stated before, the sound and graphics are excellent for the time, and the gameplay is varied and certain to keep you busy for some time.
Definitely worth a look, so go ahead and download!
