E3 2013: Hunt down criminals in Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath for iOS and Android
by Anthony Usher 11/6/2013
Product: Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath
Developer: Just Add Water
Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
Genre: Action, Platform
TheSixthAxis is reporting that Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is heading to the iPhone, iPad, and other mobile devices soon.

According to the website, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is far from complete.

Still, it apparently already "looks and plays" very much like the original Xbox release, and "works better than most" other third- or first-person titles on mobile devices.

Just Add Water's Stewart Gilray has told TheSixthAxis that his company will - on the whole - use original Xbox assets in this mobile port of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath.

Gilray also stated that the incorporation of some fancy HD assets into this mobile iteration of the game isn't out of the question, mind.



When it comes to gaming, the Android platform often plays second fiddle to Apple's ever-popular iOS platform. Fear not, though: Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath should be available on Google's mobile OS, too.

Oddworld Inhabitants founder Lorne Lanning believes that the game will work perfectly well on Android-powered devices, and that controller pairing shouldn't be an issue.

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, which was originally released on Microsoft's Xbox back in 2005 and ported to Sony's PS Vita late last year, is an action-packed adventure title in which you assume the role of a bounty hunter.

Your aim, naturally enough, is to hunt down outlaws that have a bounty on their heads; bring them in dead or alive; and line your pockets with moolah. Simple.

We'll let you know as soon as we have more info on Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath for iOS and Android.
