Another World (Out of This World in North America) is a retro cinematic running, jumping and shooting game about a young scientist who, as a result of a failed experiment finds himself on a dangerous alien world where he is forced to fight for his survival.

The game was ahead of its time for the use of vector graphics to create the sense of character movement. It has now been re-released as a classic. It stands out as a simple b-movie adventure without the more complex trappings of modern games.
