A mudokon chosen by the fickle finger of fate, Abe was a first class Floor-Waxer for RuptureFarms who was catapulted into a life of adventure.
Late one night he overheard plans from his boss, Molluck the Glukkon, to turn Abe and his fellow Mudokons into Tasty Treats as a final effort to rescue Molluck's failing meatpacking empire!
Can Abe change the fate of thousands and rescue the Mudokons? Can he escape the dark recesses of RuptureFarms and the desolate, uninviting, and downright terrifying surrounding environment?
Lead our unlikely hero on his mission because if he doesn’t make it… Abe’s back on the menu!

Great game, not for iOS
I was a big fan of Abe’s Oddysee and Abe’s Exodus the two decades (really?) ago that they were published. At the time they came out, they joined Rayman as interesting platforms with more depth than Mario or Sonic. The two Abe games featured a fantastically odd world (which should have been expected from Oddworld Inhabitants), a grim but entertaining esthetic, great voice work, and characters you wanted to know more about. What was also true about the Abe games was that they often depended on somewhat twitchy fingers and often you would be off by a frame or two, leading to a strong desire to smash your keyboard into teeny tiny pieces.
This remake of Abe’s Oddysee boasts a true recreation of all of those characteristics. The problem is, like the Sonic CD port before it, what this game highlights is the inadequacy of a touch screen at replicating a keyboard or game pad. Everything that made this game what it was is still here, this is a really redesign port of a really great game, but this is also clearly a port for iOS that was done once the game was already designed for the PlayStation/steam/whatever other modern online gaming marketplace.
I’m glad that I can play this game again. It’s a perennial for me. But when SoulStorm comes out, I’m making sure to purchase it through Steam.
Elums spoil the game
I was thrilled to see New and Tasty be released for iPad but when I got introduced to the Elums early in the game which Abe rides to supposedly jump over canyons to advance, I gave up after 200+ tries to get the timing absolutely perfect or be set back again and again. They took the fun out of the gameplay even in easy mode and made it an exercise in frustration and futility. Graphics are gorgeous. I wish I could see them all.
New day... I tried again until my thumb tips got too sore and my brain was about to explode. Elums either don't jump at all when button is pushed or the timing windows are so incredibly narrow that the long sequence of pillar jumps without an intermediate save is (close to) impossible. I loved this game until I hit this permanent blockade to progressing. Pfui! Maybe I'll try again for a few hours tomorrow. What fun!
Your New Favorite & no in-app$ or ads!!
Bought this because the reviews were good & graphics looked cool---WOW!! So glad I did!!
Very impressed with the game all around; funny, slightly gory, many different puzzle styles--with puzzles inside of puzzles, hidden secrets throughout, haven't found a glitch yet---believe me, I could go on....but by now your tired of reading.
I like this Odd World game/so much I went back & bought the other two without reading reviews; I'm sure you will too ! !
Congrats to all who worked on this!!
