A new breed of WARRIOR returns, committed to destroying the enemies of FREEDOM
When ONE angry man, has a world to protect - There is only ONE future – HIS OWN

No-nonsense hero Marlow never shied away from danger or trouble. But now he faces his ULTIMATE challenge. After crash-landing in Central America, he has an industrial evil to defeat whilst bound to an ancient Mayan Death Mask who’s had no-one to talk to for 2000 years. Another day at the office only this time Marlow is PUSHED TO THE LIMIT , his sweetheart has been abducted, the bad guys are making up their own rules and only one man can judge them – and EXECUTE THE SENTENCE .

Fearlessly fighting through Mayan temples and towering valleys, monstrous machinery, nothing, but nothing, will stand in the way of this bad ass warrior, his girl and the crushing of all opposition.

They told him to go to HELL, he was DEAD ready!!!

With cliffhanger over the top action and cinematic gameplay, Marlow Briggs takes inspiration from the best of blockbuster films, comic book heroes, and action games with its focus on relentless high-octane combat, exotic and danger filled environments and epic set pieces.

• Fight the enemies of FREEDOM with stacks of awesome combos and magic abilities,
• Single handedly destroy HUNDREDS of enemies
• Deploy MIGHTY weapons of destruction
• Leap out of HUGE EXPLOSIONS in slow motion
• Reveal the DEADLY secrets of the Mayans
• Save the ENTIRE planet

Marlow Briggs is the kind of game that knows it is bad and enjoys every last second of it. The corny acting, the even cornier lines, the dumbed down hack & slash mechanics, and the hilariously stupid plot all serve one thing: to let you have a great time.

Long version:
Steam is full of bad games. And while Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is undoubtedly a bad game, what makes it stand out in the sea of Greenlight schlock is that it was designed to be a bad game: which suddenly elevates it into so-bad-it-is-actually-great status.
Let me explain.

When you play a bad game, you often get frustrated because of bad level design or game mechanics, or bad controls. Or even worse, the game is downright boring. With Marlow Briggs, you will hardly ever get bored: it is a platformer, a hack & slash, a rail shooter, and a shoot ‘em up– all packed into one explosive pack of joy. Sure, some of the platforming levels are repetitive and the camera tends to kill you more than the bosses, but there are so many minigames and shooter sections that you will never, ever get bored.

The game mechanics are simple as a brick: you have a jump button, normal and a power attack, and a few spells. They form dozens of combos, but they cannot hide the fact that Marlow Briggs is played by mashing two buttons as fast as you can. Combat is strangely satisfying though with good enemy design and one of the most balanced difficulty sliders I saw in a long time.

The cherry on top of this rather delicious action cake is the story. You cannot name a single 90s action movie cliché or one-liner that isn’t here in some form, and there are more explosions than in Michael Bay’s entire filmography. All completed with a voice acting hammier than a pig farm; it is hilariously terrible and you will probably find yourself unable to not laugh at it, just like how the developers intended.

Marlow Briggs and the mask of death scorpion is a very good action game. It's not trying to be too serious or too complicated. Be prepared to fight hundreds od enemies, solve puzzles, listen to funny conversations, decent voice acting and impressive music evoking your combat spirit! :)

The story is not special in any way and there can be found some bugs time to time. I don't think I've ever fallen out of the map as often as in Marlow Briggs ;) But there is something.. some force which protects you from frustration and make you enjoy this very silly game.

I wish it was a bit longer. It's just too addictive ;) And it's cheap! It's worth more than it costs!

Dog-dumb God of War-clone that tries really hard to be as corny and stupid as possible - "direct to video"-style. Lends itself to a "fire and forget"-playthrough, just to bury it in your SteamLibrary forever afterwards. It's not bad nor particularly good or innovative, technically impressive though. If you want some cheap, button-mashy action-thrills with some obvious God of War-referencing - Marlow Briggs is for you, just don't play it sober.

Not my prefered hack and slay on Steam (We got Platinum Games! And Devil May Cry!) but competent enough to not hate on it either.

latforming, puzzles, and mini-games. You're never doing the same thing for too long, which keeps the experience fresh and entertaining. As you progress through the game, your weapon acquires different forms (scythe, twin daggers, whip, and hammer), which are useful in different situations and you can switch between them at any time. In addition you also learn some very powerful spells which are good at clearing out large crowds of enemies.

Overall the difficulty I felt was balanced perfectly. There were no unexpected difficulty spikes and most of it was a smooth ride. In the last quarter of the game it gets a bit challenging, but it does so gradually and reasonably.
