Welcome To Paddington Station
War Of The Worlds, Other Ocean Interactive's downloadable 2D action adventure based on the classic H.G. Wells novel, is looking better and better each time we see it. Especially if you were a fan of Flashback. This latest asset drop gives us a look into the Paddington Station level, which will test protagonist Arthur Clarke (heh) with with all manner of dangerous obstacles. It's also designed to foreshadow the damage that the alien invasion has caused to familiar landmarks.
From the press release:
The War of the Worlds is a dark and breathtaking new vision inspired by the classic H.G. Wells novel, retold as a single player, 2D action-adventure. The gameplay narrative parallels the timeline and events from the 1953 movie adaptation, but introduces a new story arc, characters, locations, and sub-plots. With gameplay paying homage to classic cinematic platformers such as Out of This World, Prince of Persia, Flashback and Heart of Darkness, players follow the exploits of an unknown everyman struggling to escape the Martian invasion of London and rescue his family. Forced to think through insurmountable odds, players will outsmart an army of alien tripods, spiders and drones as they make their way through a landscape of total devastation.
