About This Game

After the colonization of Mars, a team of scientists design an armor suit of cataclysmic power, sparking a conflict between several factions. When Mars suddenly vanishes, one woman sets out to discover the fate of humanity.

Takes me back to that musty old basement with horrible carpeting where I played all those early '90s DOS games, starting with Apogee and id Software shareware releases like Bio Menace, Monster Bash, and the Commander Keen series. This one nails the look and feel of those games, combining the color schemes of CGA and EGA graphics (with perhaps some subtle liberties taken). There's no save feature, but the game is pretty short and you can pick which episode to start from anyway. No music aside from the title screen, either, but we can let this slide. Good one to pick up on sale.

MURI is where you play as a Father I think who has arrived at Earth who unleashed the robots upon the MURI crew because the Lifeforce of the planet Mars was absorbed by their son Kojo. Upon the destruction of Earth? You must find your missing wife to meld together I think is what your battling for. The game is a side scrolling platformer with awesome platforming controls a rarity on PC. Works fine on a controller with awesome retro sound effects. I thought the game was old, but its very clever, its a new game made to look like an old game and it does this 100% awesome. While not long its a good ride with simple controls that work making it easy to pick up and play anytime. This game is made more awesome by having lingonberries in it if you "Activate Sweden". The game is as short or as long as you want to make it, there is a stat on screen telling you when you find 100% of the treasures on a map which makes it fun to just keep playing until you find em all, or you can just skip ahead if you want.

MURI is made out of pure nostalgia. If you played alot of late 80s-early90s DOS games, this one will take you back and you'll swear you saw it somewhere once before, many years ago. Gameplay is tight. Levels are well designed. Graphics are pixel perfect to the era and so is the soundtrack.

A game that brings you back if you ever had the chance to play any dos games like this, then MURI is a treat for you :)
It was released on steam 2013, and I thought to my self. "Meh why not" And then it just was there in my library, waiting... and now 2014 I played it from the start to end and I found my self eating the story line fully!

The storyline is well written, and far from too long nor too short
The classic graphics is nothing to complain about as the developers made sure not to go too far with it.
and "bleep boop♪" Classic sfx ingame just to die for.

I reccomend this game to any person who needs a small vacation from their Fps and just kick back and sit with a controller in your hand as you engulf your self into the story of MURI

10/10

This old-style game has you trying to find out why Mars has disappeared, and as you run and gun across the four episodes you discover the answers via cut scenes.

As a platform/shooter (with its slower pace) it is like playing the DOS games of old and with about 2 hours worth of play, the game is a short one, but it has lots of secret areas to be found.

The lack of a save point can be annoying to some modern players and the game could of benefited with some music to add a little more atmosphere, but overall this is a little great game.

Do you enjoy EGA DOS platform games, à la Duke Nukem 1? Then check this out. It is superb (and cheap!)
There are a couple nitpicky things, like a lack of a savegame feature and the way your guy stays facing the same way as long as you're shooting, but nothing terrible. There are reasons for both being there and you get used to them.
Personally I loved it. Over in about 2 hours and a blast the entire way!
