Play 12 Minigames based on Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds!

❝ The chances of anything coming from Mars are a Million to One, he said... ❞

★★★ Episode 9: Red Weed 2 is here! ★★★

The original HG Wells story was first published as an episodic adventure for Pearsons magazine in 1897, so in homage we've created a 12-part episodic Minigame Adventure of The War of The Worlds. Each minigame is based on one of the scenes in Jeff Wayne's Musical Version, and features the music, sounds, and dialogue from the award-winning musical.

❝ At Midnight, on the 12th of August, a large mass of luminous gas erupted from Mars and sped toward Earth... ❞

Advance the story as you complete each minigame. Start with the Prequel puzzle adventure quest, where you learn how the Martians surveyed Earth. Work your way through different game styles with each Episode, from puzzle to action to arcade games.

Survive the streets of London under attack! Pilot the Thunder Child to keep the Martian Fighting Machine's at bay while Carrie escapes! Hide from the Martians with the Parson@ Ply cards with the Artilleryman! And ultimately, defeat the Martians.

Featuring the music and sounds of Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of The Worlds, www.thewaroftheworlds.com.

EIGHT Minigame Episodes are now available -- your purchase now gets you all 12 serialized minigame episodes as they are released!

Anyone bought this one by any chance?
I'm thinking to get it.. Almost seems like the whole soundtrack is included.
If so, then I am wondering how long it takes, before it gets pulled, due to
copyright of the musical.

Anyone able to confirm?

Bought just now
I reckon they must have the license to use the full name like that. Anyway, it's about 450Mb download so guessing there is a fair chunk of audio & video in the game. I've played up to the 3rd mini-game and there is no music whilst actually playing (probably wise as it would get repetitive) but there are cutscenes with FMV and music in between levels and for intro/outros to each game with some cutscenes during 1 of the games so far.

Production values are high. Quite impressed with presentation... will reserve judgement on the games until I get a bit further but not bad so far!

1st game is simple puzzle/HO game. 2nd is a 'light reflecting/focusing' type affair. 3rd is a bit odd!

Anyhow to answer your specific question: No, there does not seem to be a fully playable 'album' of music - it's just scattered throughout the game here and there.

Thank you both.

I should have checked the original website, but got sidetracked today at work.
Seems indeed coming from them, guess the company threw me of here.
Going to hit the buy button here
