Other Ocean Interactive’s side scrolling platformer ‘The War of the Worlds’ is now available for download on Xbox Live Arcade. This new game is fresh take on the famous science fiction novel of the same name by H. G. Wells. As a 2D platfomer, the game features old school gameplay alongside highly stylised visuals and graphics.
The game’s story is set alongside the 1953 film adaptation (not the 2005 one, thankfully) where a Martian invasion of Earth has taken place, leaving players to follow the events, narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart, through the eyes of an unknown everyman.
The War of the Worlds is available to download now on Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points.
