[Deal Alert] Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is down to $0.10 in a few countries

If you like well designed games with engulfing graphics, appropriately adapted to mobile gameplay, gamepad support, and dozens of unique characters and environments, you'll love Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath. The game was first released on Android back in 2014 as an Amazon exclusive, then made it onto the Play Store for all. It has since been downloaded over 100,000 times and managed to keep a 4.5 star rating with nearly 17500 reviews. Impressive.

Stranger's Wrath first cost $4.99, but it has been hovering between $0.99 and $2.99 over the past few months. Now though, it's down to an even lower price, just like Munch's Oddysee was a few weeks ago.

Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee Brings Its Uniquely Weird 3D Platforming To Android For $5

Oddworld is a series of games in a variety of genres, all united by the core element of... well, oddness. If you played Stranger's Wrath, the last Oddworld port to reach Android about a year ago, you know what I mean: that game was a third-person action title in which you shot tiny adorably creatures out of a double-barrel crossbow. Munch's Oddysee is an even older game, originally released on the Xbox (the one that isn't the One) back in 2001. It's a sequel to Abe's Oddysee and Abe's Exodus, it's the first in the series to offer true 3D gameplay, and now it's on Android.

Thanks to commenters step_jac and Amarus Kh for letting us know.

Update again: It looks like Stranger's Wrath is compatible with Android TV as well. Nice.


The Oddworld series is one of the hidden gems of gaming: it's never been a blockbuster in terms of sales, but each game is utterly unique and brings innovative elements across setting, story, aesthetics, and gameplay.
