Informazioni sul gioco

Arriva il GUERRIERO che dovrà distruggere i nemici della LIBERTÀ! L'eroico Marlow non si è mai tirato indietro, quando si è trovato in situazioni pericolose, ma ora dovrà affrontare la più difficile sfida della sua vita! Capitato quasi per caso in america Centrale, Marlow dovrà sconfiggere una malvagia multinazionale, aiutato da una loquace maschera della morte maya che non ha avuto nessuno con cui parlare per più di 2000 anni. Marlow Briggs prende ispirazione dai più famosi film d'azione, dagli eroi dei fumetti più amati e dai videogame di maggior successo per offrire un'esperienza di gioco che vi terrà con il fiato sospeso dall'inizio alla fine! Combattimenti senza tregua, incredibili acrobazie, favolose ambientazioni esotiche piene di pericoli di ogni genere, inseguimenti mozzafiato e situazioni ad altissimo tasso di adrenalina sono gli elementi che rendono questo gioco spettacolare ed entusiasmante!

A solid hack n slash tinged with elements of Tomb Raider and God of War. A few glitches but nothing to detract from the entertaining game-play. The game stays fresh throughout thoughtfully mixing platforming, melee, magic summoning and mini games. A comedic thread is established early and is maintained as the shirtless black male muscular protagonist frequently converses humorously with a witty spirit of another realm. The neoteric presentation characterized by an application controlled camera could of been an abject failure but instead provides for some alluring game-play perspectives. A surprisingly well produced title.

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.

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is the equivalent of a B-movie from the 1980s and 1990s. It is so bad it is good. It is clearly a low budget game that is not a breakthrough for the game industry or the game’s genre. However, this game provides plenty of fun from the beginning. The gameplay feels varied enough as you traverse different settings in the same country and the action never lets up.

Marlow Briggs is a smokejumper who goes on vacation outside the U.S. to a Spanish speaking country. I initially thought it was Mexico, but it could have been Central or South America based on the jungles and the rich history of the indigenous people. He is with his girlfriend, an archeologist who is kidnapped by an Asian madman, Heng Long, with godlike magical powers who seems bent on taking over the world. This madman kills Marlow Briggs with a mythical weapon, but he is reborn by a Mayan mask proclaiming him to be the sacred warrior who must save the sacred land. Long is backed up by an army of mercenaries of varying levels of difficulty. Marlow goes to fight to save the land for the Mayan mask and to save his girlfriend. It becomes apparent that this plot is formulaic and unoriginal but this game can get away with it because of its X factor: entertainment value.

Once Marlow goes to work the plot takes a backseat and the real fun begins. Marlow begins with the same weapon used to kill him. It has short range, but it cuts good. The gameplay seems to borrow elements from the Tomb Raider series and God of War. The mercenaries may seem repetitive at times, but it does not detract from the fun that combat provides. The Mayan mask becomes Marlow’s sidekick, cracking cheesy jokes along the way. While the combat is mainly melee Marlow is introduced to magic spells that require full or near full levels of mana. There are red masks for health regeneration and blue masks for mana regeneration. The red and blue masks are generously placed in areas of intense combat. Therefore, it is easy to regenerate health and mana after the combat is over. There are also new weapons to use that slice better and have more range than the first weapon of the game. Sometimes Marlow sounds like an action hero from a cheesy action film when fighting saying things like “Aw yeah, class is in session.” His acrobatics are well animated, whether in combat or jumping from one section to another.

There are many bosses that Marlow Briggs must face. I think they are quite impressive and require you to figure out their moves so that you can best fight them without taking damage in return. The boss fights seem to ensure that you put as much importance in your defensive moves as you do in your offensive moves. It becomes important to damage your toughest foes without taking so much damage in return. The battles with the ordinary mercenaries are the ones that feel a little repetitive as you advance through the game. The animations of all the mercenaries are impressive and look realistic.

There are platforming aspects to this game, much like the Tomb Raider games. There are plenty of puzzles, some timed whereas others are not timed. Some puzzles require you to jump around a lot to reach the next destination. Other puzzles require you to move boxes to open doors or gain access to boxes that can lead to higher levels. The puzzles are really none too complicated to solve. There sceneries are not the best in terms of graphics, but they are respectable with enough detail to look realistic, especially for a low budget game. Eventually, Marlow will be able to glide (fly) from one platform to another since double jumps will not always be good enough. There is also a break in the melee action when Marlow is required to shoot stationary guns to shoot down choppers. There are also challenges that require you to shoot down aircraft in top-down style.

The one gripe I have about this game is the fixed camera angles. The camera angles are inflexible and awkward as they do not allow for much viewing freedom. This can lead to some frustrations such as jumping and falling to your death. Eventually, I got over the problem with these camera angles. It feels like an unrefined aspect of this game, but it is not so bad that it would ruin the game. The developers at ZootFly can sure use tips from Crystal Dynamics, the developers of Tomb Raider, on how to best apply camera angles in a game that features platform jumping and puzzle solving. Also, there are times when the camera obstructs your view when fighting two very large Juggernauts of Chabtan. One comes after me while I can’t see what the other one is doing.

I think Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death deserved more popularity than it got. It is a solid action game with plenty of fun gameplay that never reaches boredom. I recommend this game to anyone. At a price of $4.99 you cannot go wrong with this game.

My Score: 7/10

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.
