このゲームについて

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

Kind of a cross between God of War and a 70s blaxploitation action flick: Marlow Briggs, firefighter, is visiting his girlfriend at a Mesoamerican dig site when he is murdered by her creepy boss with an impracical antique scythe. He awakens as the "sacred warrior", accompanied by an annoying talking mask, and must battle through hordes of mercenary mooks, jungles full of exploding bugs the size of dogs, scorpions the size of cars, and giant zombie warriors.

Like its obvious antecedent God of War, it's a reasonably solid mix of platforming and button-mashing combat (long "combos" created through the light and heavy attack buttons, with four different weapons unlocked through the game), with occasional puzzles. As is often the case with this sort of design, it doesn't do any one thing particularly well -- the Arkham games ruined combat for everyone else, and it definitely gets repetitive here, and the platforming sequences are uninspiring make-work. There are also a number of strange mini-game sequences, e.g. manning a turret to shoot down helicopters and two instances of flying an aircraft in a particularly terrible Raiden-style top-down shooter.

Where it really shines, though, like God of War, is as blockbuster spectacle -- a "boss" that's an enormous screen-filling sea monster, platforming through a collapsing mine etc. The story isn't much to write home about it but it provides a reason to hurtle from one explosive crisis to the next. It's entirely linear.

The variety of environments and enemies is fairly good, though the game is relatively short (~6 hours). It's not stunningly polished; there are invisible walls everywhere, occasional issues with the controls etc.

Some negative reviews here complain about checkpoint spacing, which I wuold agree with except that it appears to be possible to create your own checkpoint at any time with a quicksave from the menu.

It's good fun and available so cheaply that it's well worth giving a go.

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

If you think this is a character action game, let me tell you how ♥♥♥♥ing wrong you are! This is an action platforming game with some combat. You'll spend 70% jumping around and doing puzzles and 30% fighting. So yeah I would recommend this game if you're expecting that, if you think this is in line with Bayonetta and God of War, NO. Avoid it according to what you want.

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.

Portrayed as a God of War Clone, Marlow Briggs is, indeed reusing most of god war mechanics.
However, what makes this game great is the non stop Action and hilarious Dialogue reminiscent of a 90's action movie.
Graphics are good, not nextgen proof, but still quite decent and definitly superior to other games with higher price tags.
The levels presents a good number of different environments and thus prevent getting bored of the scenery.

Also, you can rename the game title as "Pierce and the Mask of Death" because Marlow's voice actor (Arif S. Kinchen) has lso voiced a certain saint in a different game XD

Best way to summarize it:
Pierce get its own movie with Michael Bay in charge of the fight scenes and Crash bandicoot Mask "Aku Aku" as an hilarious sidekick!

My advice: Play it! Beyond the fact that this game price is incredebly low, and regardless of your take on the story, the dialogue and actions will keep you entertained for the ride :D

Doesn't take itself too seriously, and for the price, is definitely a great game. Genuinely fun action, marred by only a few poorly designed bits.

Ok, so here's the review for Marlow Briggs!

Short review - This game was FUN!

First off, this game had been sitting in my library for a very long time. It was just that I had to take out time for a third person story driven game. But once I started to play this game, I wanted to play through it completely, cause I found it fun! Where most of the games become a chore sometimes, this one was actually fun. Though if you are really a game critic you may not review this game very highly. Its understandable, I think this is one of those games, you would play once and be done with. Somehow the fun element in this game reminded me of console games back in the 90s, with revamped twist to it.

Main points
* Third person story driven hack n slash type
* main empahsis is on the story, and you getting to beat up the enemies.
* The game isn't all that difficult but still decently challenging.
* Beating the enemies is repetitive, but you won't really get bored cause the game is mainly story driven, and a lot is happening all the time. Things really change with the scenery and all, so you don't get bored of the beat em up!
* Also the game is short, at about 8 hours I completed it, and I liked it!

Verdict-
If you are looking for a fun game, that you wanna pick up and play to relax or just chill perhaps, you will find what you are looking for. Also, this game isn't a time sink, you'll pretty much be able to unlock all the abilities and get almost all the achievements on steam in about 8 hours time!

So at the end you'll be all happy happy! :)

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is a moderately compitent spectacle fighter.

My play time for the full game was roughly 7 hours.

The game feels better with a gamepad though it features keyboard controls, On screen prompts will switch between Xbox 360 and Keyboard controls on the fly if you begin inputting from another source.

The story follows the titular Marlow Briggs and his bound by death partner as they attempt to save his girlfriend... and the world. The game is made to be funny but some of the jokes mainly the ones said when the platforming mechanics fail and send you to your death fall flat.

I can't say that Marlow Briggs gripped me to my seat and didn't let go but it was fun. There are some bugs and glitches some of which were caused me to have to reset my game but nothing really terrible. Pick it up on sale.

Marlow Briggs is a fun game, action packed game with tongue-in-cheek B movie style humor and fun God of War style gameplay.

Marlow Briggs isn't exactly breaking any new ground however a good game doesn't need to break new ground to be fun and an enjoyable experience. Sometimes it's the games that just want to have fun that make you enjoy your time with them the most. Marlow Briggs fits this description so aptly. The voice acting is decent but still has the cheese to really emphasize the B movie style. Marlow is actually voiced by Pierce from the Saints Row series.

The combat is solid with a lot of combos. You're given the ability to do light and heavy hits, but there's no automatic counter attack button which means that you still need to pay attention to the game to win. The enemy variety is rather decent. You'll fight bugs, big guys who want to melee you and guys with rocket launchers and flamethrowers. The enemies are dispatched kind of simuilarly but the amount of combos at your disposal means that you can vary it up yourself.

The game is about 6-8 hours in length depending on how you play.


Overall an enjoyable experience and a steal for $5. Highly recommended.

The game is just a button masher with 4 super powers 4 melee weaopons and a variety of combos that change nothing really. However the thing is it varies sequences very well - platformer, shooting big guns, slides, little challenges, controlling big enemies, new enemies and etc. You always think it gets repetitve and bam it changes. Not so much in the beggning though. Hard not to recommed for the current price. Too bad the banter tween the mask and the protagnoist and the antagonist are far and few in between. The camera can be rather annoying.

The credit scene game. Do they have to make an annoying one? hahaha

Awesome hack-n-slash adventure game with elements of Lara Croft & Nathan Drake's tomb raiding along with Kratos' love of bloodlust

At times the game feels like it drags on a bit (and the story isn't the best), but getting new upgrades, skills, and feeling unstoppable make the progression worth it!

When Terry Crews looked at this game, he shouted the phrase "this game is... PO-PO-PO-PO-POWER!"

I laughed when I saw the trailer for this game, I looked at the face of Marlow Briggs ... and I said "damn this guy looks like Terry Crews hahaha"... This game is awesome!

Admit it. We all loved God of War. When those games first hit the market, videos games as an industry woul never be the same. In a market that constantly demands innovation, development of new concepts and methods of interaction, it can be easy to forget how amazing certain tried and true formula can be. I STILL love playing God of War... and this game, is a shameless clone/update, call it what you will. Graphically upated, and skinned in a different mythos, Kratos becomes Marlow.

This games isn't promising anything revolutionary. It also refuses to take itself seriously. The production value is solid, the voice acting well done. The narrator that is Marlow's "spirit guide" i suppose, is constantly making wise cracks. I found the game delightful.

Every time I wanted to put the controller down, it kept pulling me back in... a familiar feeling. It isn't perfect and it doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it brought back a play style and experience that I feel you don't find enough in modern gaming. I think someone described it as being able to play a 90's action blockbuster.... fairly dead on.

Get it on sale and you will not be dissapointed. It's FUN. Engaging and you will not have to think to hard. Everyting in it takes place on an epic scale. An abundance of great Mini-games too.

I am not finished with the game at this point. I did notice the absence of any MEGA boss fights (Kratos vs the hydra or kraken) but perhaps those are to come.

This is not just "Devil May Cry or God of War" rip off. It's a full fledged action-packed combat game with dry humor. Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death draws inspiration from several popular media like Devil May Cry, God of War, Indiana Jones and etc. It's an adventure of Marlow Briggs who was killed and then resurrected by the Mask of Death, ancient Mayan mystical artifact, in order to save the world and his girlfriend. The visual and locations in this game are nice and beautiful, giving a sense of archaeological adventure. Combat is challenging and satisfying with a lot of weapons, combos and magics. There are a lot of dry humours along the way to relief you from intense moments. Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is a worth entertaining addition to hack and slash action genre.

This game is a button masher adolescent power fantasy.

Thankfully that's exactly what I wanted. It's a stupid hack-and-slash with no depth that succeeds because it keeps the pace up and constantly changes what you're doing. It has a dumb-as-rocks story that involves Marlow Briggs, a Regular Guy (TM) getting killed by an Evil Genius (TM) and then being resurrected to take on said Evil Genius by Aku Aku from Crash Bandicoot.

From there it's 6-8 hours of slashing and platforming and rail shooting. You don't do any one thing for too long so it doesn't get boring.

The only issue I have with the game is some of the late game boss fights, which fall into the trap of going like this: dodge to avoid boss's slow attack, dodge in and hit boss once or twice, dodge back out, repeat. This would be fine except that many of the bosses have really large health pools, so, while it's not hard to beat them because you can easily avoid their attacks, the battles do test your patience. This is just bad game design. If I've figured out the trick to beating the boss, let me beat the boss already! Don't make me do the trick 40 times, I already understand it!

Other than that it's good if you want something with that dumb 80s action movie feel.

Performance note: this game has a couple of annoying, but not game-breaking, technical problems.

First, my audio drivers crashed every single time I quit the game, resulting in that loud buzzing noise that you get when your drivers crash. I had to restart the computer to get the noise to stop. Not a huge deal since I beat this in 3 sittings, but it is annoying. I have a dedicated Asus Xonar soundcard and I haven't noticed anyone else complaining about this problem, so it might just be my setup. YMMV.

Second, this game respects the Windows display scaling when it shouldn't. What I mean is, I have my computer hooked up to a 43" TV and I sit about 7 feet away, so I have to set text and apps to 150% size in Windows display settings to make things readable. When I run Marlow Briggs with display scaling set to 150%, the game's menus and HUD increase as well and run off the side of the screen. So I had to toggle my Windows display scaling every time I booted the game up. I haven't noticed any other games that do this, so it makes me think that 505 Games just doesn't know what they're doing.

This game does a few things way better than God of War III. The visuals are solid. The audio is solid. The gameplay is satisfying as hell. And it's hilarious. Play it. It's worth the money.

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.

アクションアドベンチャー.日本語未対応.
【システム】
鎌を使って敵をなぎ倒していくアクションゲーム.弱攻撃と強攻撃の組み合わせで様々な技を出せる.DMC程派手ではなく、アクション性としてはダークサイダースに近い.武器は鎌・二刀鎌・鎖鎌・大鎌の4つ.
MPを消費して強力な範囲魔法も使える.炎・氷・地・風の4つ.一応遠距離武器もあるが、こちらもMPを消費する.威力は大したことないので基本的に飛行型の敵にしか使わない.武器や魔法はストーリー進行と共に解禁されていき、敵を倒して得た経験値を消費して強化できる.
【グラフィック・ボリューム等】
グラフィックは綺麗で、ジャングルや遺跡、雪山等マップも多彩.1周6時間弱でクリアできるボリュームだが500円のゲームなので妥当といった所か.難易度は3段階あり、全体的に易しめ.1周目クリア後最高難易度が解禁される.
【総評】
全体から漂うB級感は拭えないし、武器が鎌だったり魔法の翼で滑空したりとダークサイダースとの類似点が多いのも気になるが、500円の価値は十分にある.セールされていることが多いが定価で買っても損はない.アクション自体は大味だが、疲れない程度にド派手な展開が連続するので止め時が見つからない良ゲー.

爽快、ダレない、ユーモラスと安売りアクションゲームの鑑。カメラの動きに問題があるものの、そこさえ我慢すれば十分楽しめる。

【ノンストップのアクションに次ぐアクション大活劇】
ゴッドオブウォー系の凡百のクローンゲームは沢山生まれたが、中でも完成度で一線を画した、隠れた大傑作と言い切っていい。しかも実売500円でセールになると100円。持っていない人はとりあえずウィッシュリストに入れてセール待ちして欲しい。なんか冴えないムキムキマッチョマンの黒人のおっさんが主人公だが、80年台のシュワちゃんの映画みたいに『ありえねー!』突っ込みどころ満載のめまぐるしい連続アクション!(特に序盤)紙装甲のヘリを砲台で何台も叩き落としたりトロッコを反復横跳びしたり、何故か縦シューになったり単なるGoWクローンに収まっていないところも好感が持てる。全編英語だけど、謎解きに困るようなシチュエーションはこの手のゲームをプレイした経験があるならばまず無いだろう。グラフィックの質もものすごく高い(低スペPCでも実感でPS3.5くらい)葉っぱのテカリや水や金属の表現、湿った岩に炎のゆらめき等の基本的な表現がしっかりしていてしかも軽い。コンボもお手軽で全体的なボリュームもこの手の価格帯ではしっかりある。即死の場面でのリスタートも早い。ただ、2つ難点があってステージの途中で急に始まるチャレンジ課題(坂道を滑りながらアイテムを連続でとったり、ヘリを連続で落としたり)が途中セーブ出来なかったりしかも長いのでやり直しが面倒なのと、これは環境によるだろうけど30~40分に一度くらいの割合で突然CTD落ちがある。チェックポイントが細かくあるので巻き戻りロスも少ないがかなり気になるのはある。2つとも慣れればまぁ目を潰れるかなぁ…

結論言うと結構面白いです。

安いのでカジュアル程度の内容かと思ったら、意外な作りこみでびっくりしました。
一昔前ならフルプライスで発売してそうなアクションゲームです。

コンボがイマイチ繋がらないとか、イマイチ武器のリーチが足りないような気がするなどの問題も多少ありますが、
今の販売価格を考えると十分以上のデキと思います。

興味があれば良いのではないでしょうか?

Every once and a while there comes a game so revolutionary, so full of ambition and creativity and with such flawless execution that they forever change the medium and shape it for years to come. They are the games that we remember decades after their release, and that continue to be cited as inspiration for new games long since we first revered at their brilliance. And then we have Marlow Briggs.

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is not a revolutionary game; it does little if anything unique borrowing heavily from games of yore without ever outdoing them in its own right. It's not the most polish, it's production values are noticeably low, and has some truly aggravating design decisions. But none of this matters because despite being formulaic and shallow Marlow Briggs is unquestionably a blast to play. If ever there was such a thing as a B-game this is it, and what ridiculous amounts of fun it is.

As the curtain rises we find Marlow Briggs, aka "the man with large hands", arriving to visit his archaeologist girlfriend on a digsite she has been working at lately. Unfortunately, as is usually the case, the operation is in fact being run by a maniacal psychopath possessing godlike magic powers and an army of mercenaries to back him up. Marlow doesn't like this, but before he can take three step towards the door he's sent on a one way trip to Xibalba and his girlfriend kidnapped. Cue flashing lightning and a talking mask and Marlow is reborn as the sacred warrior, hero of prophecy destined to save the sacred land that has been disturbed by the militias presence.

It should be noted that all of this plays out in the span of about 60 seconds, at which point you are tossed straight into the action. This isn't a game that takes itself seriously; not remotely. The plot is absolutely absurd and the dialog cheesy beyond compare, but Marlow succeeds because it knows it's silly and revels in being as self-aware and goofy as possible as it jumps from setpiece to setpiece with little regard to exposition or the mounting continuity errors. This is a game that wants you to laugh with it not at it, with excellent (for what it is) writing and spot on delivery that made it impossible for me not to enjoy myself, grinning the whole way through.

When Marlow and the Mask aren't cracking jokes they're smashing in skulls. It's impossible to ignore so to put it bluntly: this is a God of War clone. Right down to the distinctive way you open chests- er, collect skulls, it plays identically to Sony Santa Monica's lovechild but that really isn't a bad thing. While it isn't as refined as that series, this is a comparable action game with some highly satisfying combat and impressive bossfights. It's nothing new, but it works well for the game and more than solid, with my only complaint being a large amount of overpowered enemies and occasionally getting locked into an animation.

Mixed together with the melee arena combat are a plethora of action movie moments such as shooting down helicopters with a mounted turret, and some light platforming and puzzle elements. The variety is great and helped alleviate much of the monotony that otherwise would have occurred from a strictly combat focus through the 6-7 hour campaign.

While it won't win any graphics awards, this is actually a rather decent looking title. The environments in particular have a lot of detail put into them, and when the camera pans out for a vista it's a gorgeous site. For a budget title it's pretty impressive, but what I thought was most clever was how instead of using costly animation for the cutscenes, the majority are instead done as freeze frame 3D stills that the camera then slowly sifts through, using dynamic angles and purposely placed obstructions to allow for the scene without you actually seeing them do it. It's a neat idea and I have to applaud the developers for their ingenuity, even if it's a little jarring at times.

I'm not sure how many more ways I can say it at this point; Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is plain uncomplicated fun. In the same way a dumb summer blockbuster is enjoyable, Marlow doesn't need to be original or perfectly polished to be entertaining. It's a nonsensical adventure that I think almost anyone could enjoy if they can give it a chance, and quite frankly is some of the most fun I've had with any video game in a long time.

If you ever played God of War and then you think to yourself "Oh man, I wish I could play as a black guy with ancient shaman powers who wields a shapeshifting scythe, have to master the four elements, save his girlfriend from being kidnapped and save the world while there are explosions everywhere!".

Then this one's for you.

I usually write up big reviews but you should only look at Marlow's smile at the preview pic. Doesn't feel like buying it yet? Look at it again, then again...you'll feel like buying it sooner or later.

This game is so good that I'll ♥♥♥♥ing buy ten copies at it at the holiday sale and give em to random people.

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is a fast-paced third person hack'n'slash game by Slovenian developer ZootFly which didn't catch a lot of attention among PC gamers at its release. Making use of pretty much all of the popular clichés, the game is filled with mindless over-the-top action, tons of explosions and hilarious puns without ever taking itself seriously at any point.

The story proves this instantly: Your girlfriend translates ancient scripts for a rich company mogul somewhere in Central America. You visit her and she explains to you how her boss is up to no good because he wants to perform a ritual that would make him a powerful god and ruler of the world. So you try to take here with you back home, which her boss obviously doesn't like, so he gets you killed with an ancient scythe, not knowing that it is imbued with power that resurrects you and summons the Mask of Death, your new companion on your path to rescue your girlfriend and stop the bad boss.

The game is based on ZootFly's own proprietary, multi-platform engine called ZEN, which doesn't really provide any PC graphics options other than resolution, fullscreen and brightness. That's a shame because the game could've definitely used some AA, which would make the colorful and detailed enviroments look even better than they already do.

While the level design as such is pretty linear, which tends to get boring after a while in a lot of games, ZootFly actually managed to add quite a lot of variety to it. Throughout the game you will encounter combat arenas, puzzles, deadly death traps, quick-reaction minigames, turret sequences and even some top-down shoot-em-up action. This sounds like a weird mix of gameplay elements but is incorporated extremely well into the game, so you never have the feeling that it is out of place.

Combat and controls are exactly like what you would expect from a game like this. Throughout the story, you get access to 4 different and upgradable weapons, each of them with a variety of combos to deliver maximum damage. Additionally, by defeating the ancient gods of fire, earth, water and wind, you unlock their devastating ground attacks, which can help you out of tricky situations or simply cause widespread carnage when facing many of the varying enemies at once.

The puzzle elements in the game mostly consist of moving blocks on trigger platforms or flipping switches to open doors and while they never are overly challenging they actually provide a welcome change to the otherwise extremely fast-paced gameplay, so you can take a short break from all the action.

Usually, with a low-budget title like this, the soundtrack and voice acting are two of the things where the developer tries to save money. Surprisingly enough, the soundtrack is actually pretty decent and, paired with the level design, builds up a really good atmosphere. While the dialogues are a bit cheesy at times, the voice acting itself is good and fits perfectly to the game characters, especially to Marlow and the Mask, who are constantly teasing each other verbally. That makes for some hilarious puns even in the weirdest situations. For example, while you are climbing a stone wall that is about to collapse and kill you, you are arguing with the Mask about who is whose sidekick in this game.

With around 8 hours of playtime for the story, the game provides an extremely decent bang for the buck and if you want to test your skills further, you can give the Challenge mode a shot where you replay the minigames from the story to achieve better scores and times to rank up in the online leaderboards.

Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is cheesy. It's mindless. It's over-the-top action. But that is exactly what makes the game so enjoyable and so much fun and it's great to see some developers going bonkers with their games without trying to be serious, dramatic or mature. If something like this is right up your alley, make sure to check the game out!

Oh, did I mention that you can ride giant scorpions in the game?
Because you can!
FRIGGIN' GIANT SCORPIONS!
