Late last month, we heard that the 20th anniversary edition of the cult classic platformer Another World (also known as Out of this World) would be coming to Android on March 16th. If you happened to check the calendar today, then you would know that today is, in fact, the 16th. If you combine the information from the first two sentences of this post, then there is only one possible conclusion: Another World 20th Anniversary Edition is out today!  #winning

This throwback game is brought into the modern day with features like HD graphics (which can be toggled in real time by sliding two fingers across the screen - how cool is that?), intuitive touch controls, remastered sounds and sound effects, OpenFeint integration, and optimization for Xperia Play devices. It's also compatible with Bluetooth-connected Zeemote joysticks and offers three modes of difficulty to test your skills: normal, hard, and hardcore.

The game will set you back $4.99, but that's a small price to pay to relive those childhood memories. Hit the widget to buy.

    I loved this game back in the day and I'd love to be able to play it on my phone. But $5 is too much for me to buy something I already own.
