Another World 20th Anniversary Edition – Review | CriticalIndieGamer

(CriticalIndieGamer)The early ’90s gave us many of gaming’s finest moments. Platforms like the Amiga and Apple II were home to timeless classics like Flashback, Cannon Fodder, Sensible Soccer and X-Com: UFO Defense. Many of these games play as well today as they did back on release. There’s just something that makes them impervious to the ravages of time. For better or for worse a few of the aforementioned games were given reboots for this generation, but it remains to be seen if they will stand the test of time as well as the originals.

I'm buying this as soon as I get home from work! Awesome game, WAY ahead of it's time. I fondly remember playing this both on PC and on my 3DO. Can't wait to play it all over again!

It is great on all platforms - particularly PS Vita. Enjoy.

What sets the Vita version apart from the others? Touch controls?

I can't reply to you directly Porkchop so I'll comment here. The vita is completely absent of touch controls - probably for the best too. The game just felt right on it. It's the perfect game to pickup and play a few chapters then put down. It might just be my preference.
