OddWorld: Abe's Oddysee features Abe, who is an alien creature bound to a life of slavery.

The game that started the OddWorld puzzle franchise

OddWorld: Abe's Oddysee is the very first of the Oddworld games. The storyline is solid, and the puzzles are very well thought out. This is no kid’s game. The puzzles have many dynamic parts and the game is very difficult. The puzzles feature different elements such as character elements, enemies and obstacles. Interacting with each element varies from puzzle to puzzle. Should you take the bomb from the bag or have another do it? Should you kill the guard, or do you need him to chase you and open a door? The game is very challenging, but there are many OddWorld games and at least one of them has a free demo at any one time, so try out a demo before committing to buy. There is quite a lot to memorize at first, but the controls and puzzle functions become second nature after a while.

Creative plot points and even more creative puzzles

The way that Abe completes different puzzles is fresh and entertaining. He has powers that range from mind control to making contact with others despite the fact he cannot talk. OddWorld: Abe's Oddysee has Abe communicating with his friends by farting, which sounds childish, but it has a cheeky humour that many adults can still enjoy.
