If you ever owned a PlayStation 1, then you’ll know who the green-skinned, stitched-lipped, gassy Mudoken is. His name is Abe – a kind-hearted saviour rescuing his homeboys from the clutches of their oppressors – and a health and safety officer’s worst nightmare.
Abe is back, unfortunately not in a new adventure, but in an awesome remastered version of the heroic Mudoken’s attempt to take on the head honchos of Rupture Farms. All the while avoiding becoming a minced Mudoken pie.
For those who aren’t familiar with the story of Abe, you first find yourself on the run from Rupture Farm security. Abe discovers a dark secret and once finding out this secret, devises a plan to get you and your friends the heck out of the horrid factory.
On the way out, you are faced with particular problems to solve, without trying to get shot dead, blown up, minced, eaten, crushed, or zapped for chanting. If you make it past all of those, you are golden!
Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty! is a complete re-up of the 1997 release of Abe’s Oddworld and is beautifully remastered for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC with awesome 3D graphics.
If you are someone who loves some nostalgic gaming, relive your childhood and help Abe and his buddies out once more.
I would have liked to have seen Abe in a new environment, taking on new enemies, with all new catchphrases and rescue missions, but reliving the past chapter will do for now.
