Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Screenshot Comparison Gallery

Check out these side-by-side comparison screenshots that show how Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty has reimagined the visuals of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee.

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, a remake of 1997's Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, does more than just scale up the original game's 2D graphics. It has rebuilt the whole game in a new 3D engine, which means you can now move through Oddworld with a seamless scrolling camera, rather than transitioning between still screens. The remake takes great care to preserve the art direction and puzzle design of Abe's Oddysee, as these comparison screenshots show. Check out the review for more on New 'n' Tasty.

The remake has increased the number of Mudokons to rescue from the original game's 99 to 299.
Every pre-rendered cutscene is also remastered in New 'n' Tasty, sometimes retaining the same camera angles and audio from the original game.
Despite the violence and dark subject matter, the game still contains cartoonish visuals like Z's floating out of a sleeping slig.
While some levels have had their layouts slightly altered in New 'n' Tasty, others are almost perfect replicas.
The cutscenes aren't just rendered with new visuals; Abe is better animated, and more expressive in New 'n' Tasty.
Moving through these nest levels, where you are being chased by multiple foes, is even more test with New 'n' Tasty's smooth scrolling camera.
Some levels feature additional threats, like extra enemies or more land mines and motion sensors.
On lower difficulties, chanting at these fireflies will restore your health.

I enjoyed it it 1997 and will pick it up once the price drops.

This looks nice. An original Playstation game Abe's Oddysee from 1997 upgrade to 2014 visuals suited to the Playstation 4. I still have my PS1 copy of this game. But this is a great way to introduce the game to new generations of gamers. Seems much of the videogame industry/universe has become disposable a lot of videogame history is forgotten/lost forever. So people that missed out on the Playstation years 1994-2000 will get a chance to play this game.

I can't even tell the difference.

I think I'm gonna just stick with the original.  It was dark and moody.  This new version looks too bright and colorful.


It's like they changed from Tim Burton to Joel Schumacher.

For anyone who is saying the difference is marginal well thats just silly because one is a real time version of a previously pre-rendered still shot running at 6.75 times the original resolution.

Remember aspect ration when remastering for those who say there isn't a big difference.

For all the remastering going on; this one is the hardest to see the difference.

@Darkangel2154 You can see the differences pretty easily in every shot. The game obviously looks better. I wouldn't pay full price for this though. It's still mostly the same game with an impressive paint job. I'll get it off email for cheap somewhere down the road. There are no many other, better games to get this fall then another remastered game.

@Darkangel2154 I agree in these shots. Put them side by side running though and the ps1 version is an ugly, ugly mess these days.
