The original HG Wells story was first published as an episodic adventure for Pearsons magazine in 1897, so in homage we've created a 12-part episodic game adventure of The War of The Worlds. Each beautiful game is based on one of the scenes in Jeff Wayne's Musical Version, and features the music, sounds, and dialogue from the award-winning musical.

Forget about goodness and mercy
Look, I love the music album, but this app is very poorly done. The user interface and play controls are slipshod; taps and gestures feel disconnected. The gameplay is very simplistic, little better than browser flash games. And you have to pay to get more chapters. I tried the Forever Autumn one (Rock Band with WotW tracks? Sounds great!) But it's a bunch if leaves falling with no timing or rhythm with only snippets of the music playing.
You can only play the Prequel! The rest you have to pay for! What a ripoff!
I have all my favorite items combined !
I like my iPad & have been following all the items created by Jeff Wayne since the LP album came out in 1978!
Now in 2012 I can add a game designed by TWoTW team.
I am amazed how my world is enhanced by innovative ideas that come over decades of creative thought !
In the last millenium & over a century H. G. Wells began a journey that still continues to unroll.
What's next ?
Maybe a TWoTW item on Mars that is delivered by NASA ?
Great job !
Cool Games Network !
