The skeleton-bashing, hog-skewering, pumpkin-carving exploits of "Ninja Guy" don't make a lick of sense, but that won't stop a cult following from springing up around the lisp-infused Engrish pouring out of his mouth as he rushes around proving his ninja-ness.
The appeal of "Another World" has definitely survived the decades - and the porting process - but a steep interface learning curve and low content-to-price ratio will still turn some players off. If you're a big fan of action games or logic puzzles and missed it the first time(s) around, however, you owe it to yourself to experience "Another World" at least once.
Not only is "Pickpawcket" one of the best art history lessons you'll find on iOS, it's a really cool game too! Maybe it's not that port of "Metal Gear Solid" you've always wanted on your iDevice, but fans of stealth action and logic puzzle games are nevertheless highly encouraged to give this one some well-deserved attention.
