"A low budget but surprisingly enjoyable spectacle fighter. Astonishingly stupid but revels in its own b-movie leanings."

About This Game

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

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.

Game Info
Name: Marlow Briggs and The Mask of Death
Developer: Zootfly
Genre: Hack and slash, action platformer, action adventure
Personal: Awesome, simply amazing, that was 7 hours of movies that ended climatically.

Marlow Briggs And The Mask of Death
A simply amazing action platformer game with the titular Marlow Briggs taking helm as a badass guy on a mission to save the girl, kick the bad guys ♥♥♥ and all the while slaughtering hundreds of faceless mook that dares to even stand between him and his objective. I suppose you could compare this game to legends like God of War although it doesn't have the brutality associate with God of War so you won't be tearing your hair in frustration but instead can enjoy this game in peace.

Along the way witness the dynamic duo of Marlow and the titular Mask of Death as they trade banter while killing enemies, facing monstrous creatures and wielding terrible weapons.

Graphics
You probably won't believe how beautiful this game is despite the fact that it merely clocks at 2gb something in terms of size, fauna has a beautiful sheen to it, enemies and environment has beautiful and varied art to them and you will visit many location each [barring the temples] has their own art style and colour.

Music
It's awesome, its beaty track that fits well with the game and doesn't sound out of place, especially when you face some of the bosses. It's great.

Gameplay
And here is where MBATMOD shines the most, you will wield many different [actually just four but they are all different in how they play.] weapons, traverse many different locale and best of all, fight tons of enemies all with satisfying combo.

Granted I don't actually know why its more important to string longer combos since I don't actually notice any increase in reward but damn I would say its not that hard to pull off 100-200 combos by late game as your skill greatly outclass that of the enemies.

Enemies aren't dull dullard either, they will put up a stiff fight and unless you actually use those combos you will find yourself always running out of health and mana. Fun thing is killing enemies restore the meters albeit very very little. It's a fine system of risk of reward which is greatly enhanced by the fact that healing takes time and you can't just do that in the middle of a brawl with 10+ dudes so caution must be taken. One fun ability they give you in game is the ability to convert humanoid size enemies to your side by grabbing them and spamming the E button. Granted they do die quickly and are usually relegated to meatshield duty but I'll be damn if they didn't save my hide once when I got trapped in an arena with two hulking dudes and 2 never ending spawning enemies, which I proceed to convert naturally.

Did i mention boss fights are aplenty? Yes they are, and they are awesome, you will fight mythical creature, twisted monster and the demons of the underworld itself! Of course cleverly they disguise the mini boss fight as a tutorial segment to deal with the enemy type later.

So about controls, its very good and responsive. So far none of my button has mispressed. Although one issue with the game is the camera can be a backstabbing ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ occasionally, It might swing behind you, in front of you or even block your off-screen view. I guess there has to be a con no?

+Awesome gameplay
+Killer Graphic
+Responsive combat and control
+Great enemies
+Actually smart AI

+/-Occasional Copypasted levels
+/-Repetitive levels before the next carrot stick appears

-Terrible Camera
-The camera, its awful

Conclusion
So MBATMoD, lets tick the checklist shall we? Great cheesy story, awesome gameplay and enemies and a game that actually understands the meaning of action adventure by shooting you across the world at breakneck speed. I'll give this little bugger a medal and for you I will presribe a dose of this awesome game.

PRICE
THE GAME IS SUPER CHEAP DAMMIT! BUY IT ALREADY! YOU WON'T REGRET IT.

Scoring Methology [Courtesy of Meat King]:

By special Request: A musical
The game hits a high not as I enters the arena of death with the angel himself clads in black staring down upon me! Oh why lord, why has thou given upon me camera issues and terrible looking bridges ?! For what have i done to deserve it?! Down down the rabbit hole i go, i watch madness itself plays a tone that is deaf to all but he bird from which upon hiroari shoots! But aye the fair maiden awaits, with a song and companion by my side i could take on the mountain itself! Come come mountains of death! Stare upon me and rend upon my flesh as we take upon the skies.

Verdict: A-Rank.

Marlow Briggs brings a short funny game experience that may remind those movies you watch on a lazy Sunday. You have everything you can expect from an action movie/game so you just need to sit back and relax while having to face many dangerous creatures and soldiers in order to save the one you love. Marlow never wanted to be a hero, he just want to end all this madness and get his girlfriend back.

You will have a small variety of weapons and magic tricks that you will learn or get as you progress the game. With simple combos reminding the God of Wars series (without the gory aspect or the budget) you can expect a couples of puzzles as well but they may not represent a challenge if you are a fan of such things. The goal in this game is nothing new or refreshing. Marlow Briggs never taking things too seriously and the plot is really obvious about this. From explosive red barrels that are very well placed to being made fun when you fail a single jump, everything feels like a lot of things you have seen before and there’s nothing wrong with that.

The game played great without no issues and the visuals are actually quite nice. The colors are bright and vibrant and there’s a decent balance between those levels around the forest and the industrial area. I finished the game in around 6 hours and I had a decent amount of fun. It was a game that made right from the start that did not wanted to being taken seriously and they achieved that goal without flinching. If you like to play more than one game at the time and you are playing something horror related or very story heavy, Marlow Briggs is just the right thing to play between such titles.

Silliness is guaranteed as well mindless fun.
