Atari Jaguar Review - Another World - The Jag's Holy Grail?!

Please enjoy my latest Atari Jaguar review for Arcade Attack! This time I look at one of my favourite games of all time; Another World (aka Out of this World).

This rare Jag game is amazing and I feel very lucky to own a copy! Please enjoy my review below:

While I certainly appreciate Removers' work on this conversion, that statement about pushing the Jag to its 64-bit limits seems a bit of an overstatement. ;-)

Is there more technical info how it was done than this: http://removers.free.fr/AnotherWorld/ ? I mean whether he had access to the original code or was it de-compiled or (most likely) inspired by the raw engine source code?

he had access to the original atari/amiga source code, but decided to re-do a JIT compiler for the script engine the entire game is programmed in.
JIT compiler on a 12mhz 68k, not an easy task. but was it necessary ? I don't think so. I think he just wanted to have some coding fun :)

I probably did go a little overboard tbh! My bias probably shone through a tad. :)
