There is nothing quite like the Oddworld series of games. It’s a series of adventure games in what is quite literally an odd world, featuring some of the most artistically interesting and unique world and character design of any series out there.
Two games from the franchise, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath and Oddworld: Munch’s Odyssey, are currently on sale on Google Play. Both are down to $0.99 from $2.99, and both are worth the price of admission.
Stranger’s Wrath is the better game. It’s a full-on 3D adventure first-person shooter hybrid featuring the main character Stranger, a bounty hunter who pursues and captures outlaws using a versatile arsenal that includes living ammo in the form of other unique Oddworld creatures.
It’s a graphically intensive port from a game that was originally released on the Xbox, and one that plays well with a controller if you’re that kind of mobile gamer.
Munch’s Odyssey is another Xbox launch title that was ported to Android, and it’s just as vibrant and interesting as Stranger’s Wrath. However, the gameplay loop isn’t quite as good, as it was the first title to make it to 3D in the series.
Still, both games are strong examples of console ports done right on Android, and both are worth your time.
