It makes me feel old knowing that a game made in 1997 is now being pitched as a classic, but nevertheless, the critically acclaimed PC game The Last Express has now made its way over to Android. This animated adventure game was originally created by Jordan Mechner, the developer of Prince of Persia, and will hopefully attract a larger audience now that it's available for the significantly lower price of $3.99.

The Last Express takes place onboard the Orient Express in 1914 and contains over twenty hours of gameplay. In typical adventure game fashion, players will discover clues needed to solve head-scratching puzzles and interact with a wide range of characters. These NPCs move about the train and communicate with one another in their native languages. Players will have to eavesdrop on their conversations in order to progress, and their actions will affect other characters' behavior, meaning it will take multiple playthroughs to discover all that this game has to offer.

Anyone who has played the iOS version should already know what to expect. For those of us who haven't, this game comes from the same people who ported Another World and R-Type. As is typical for the developer, there's no free version available to test out, but the full game is available for anyone interested in giving this train another ride.

Bertel King, Jr.
Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

    Finally, finally, finally! The one game I wanted on Android, and here it is! So they weren't kidding that they were interested in taking their game to more platforms, unlike Telltale who have silly excuses about it. Buying this just because it exists, even though I have it on the iPad!

    Meh, not compatible with my HTC One. I think I'll stay with the GOG version

      Really? My T-Mobile One is apparently compatible.

      My '3' HTC One is compatible as well.

    IIRC, the main feature of this game is that it is "real-time", as in NPCs don't wait around for you to come around and trigger their actions, they go about their business even if you aren't around. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Express#Real-time
