Now that this whole 2012 MWC madness has finally chilled out (sort of), we can move on from announcing extremely similar smartphone and tablet releases to… well, announcing Android games and app launches.
However, the game we are going to talk about today is anything but ordinary or similar to any other and is set to rock your world. Yes, it’s Another World, the classic 1991 game, now remade by DotEmu, the French developer behind such successful releases as Broken Sword 2 and 3, Atlantis 3, Atlantis Evolution or Commandos 1, 2 and 3.
It’s true, those are all PC games, but as far as I’m concerned, the redesigning and rebooting of Another World is certainly in capable hands. The new Another World, also known as Out of This World back in 1991, will hit the Android Market on March 16th, according to a Facebook message (or status update or whatever) posted on the game’s official page.
While we still have no idea what the upcoming platform game will cost (sorry, guys, but it’s certainly not going to be made available for free), we know some of the features and functions this new mobile app will bring to the table.
Apparently, Another World 20th Anniversary Edition will follow the simple, but fun plotline of the original game while adding a few extra ‘’spices’’ and ‘’flavors’’ here and there. Among the improvements to wait for there will most definitely be HD graphics, Bluetooth support and an intuitive touch-based control system, which sounds very, very nice at least in theory.
Also, if you happen to get nostalgic while playing around with the new game, you can easily switch between original and HD graphics. There will of course be three difficulty modes to choose from and what the developers call ‘’100 % remastered sounds and effects’’.
I don’t know about you, but I for one am very excited about this upcoming rehash of one of my childhood’s classic video games (yeah, I’m that old!), so I will be watching closely the Android Market around the middle of March. Stay tuned on Androinica.com for additional details about the game, but also for a thorough review once Another World 20th Anniversary Edition will be up for download.
