In Oddworld New ‘n’ Tasty Mudokons are on the menu from Rupture Farms. Introducing Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, where you play as an unfortunate Mudokon trying to escape food processing with as many fellow Mudokons as inhumanly possible.
After its introduction, this series’ newest installment begins with a better-looking and faster loading experience than its predecessor.
Abe is the main character; a green fellow with big eyes who can overtake his predators with a special chant, or kill them with cleverly timed environmental hazards. Additionally, he can fart, throw objects, roll, jump and have his fellow Mudokons follow pre-allocated commands.
The goal is to save all the factory workers and to enjoy Oddworld and its wacky inhabitants. There is a reason behind the franchise name, after all. The game’s setting is unique and there are plenty of mechanic twists to keep it fresh!
There are three difficulty levels, and the game can be played with either a controller or a keyboard. There is also a coop mode where other players can take over when Abe bites the dust.
Players will die a lot! It’s difficult, but far from impossible; there were few places where I was stuck for a long. Re-playability comes from finding all the hidden Mudokons, and there is a good and a not-so-good ending. While the musical score is left wanting, there is a lovely ambiance and humorous in-game banter. I found Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee quite awesome and fun since I never got to play it properly back in the PlayStation era. It’s inexpensive and readily available on Steam. I would also recommend the other Oddworld games as well, so if you want to check out Oddworld New ‘n’ Tasty be sure to check it out on Steam!
