Muri is one of the best "retro games" I've ever played, but I don't think I could recommend it to someone who didn't live through the EGA era. Though if you did, it's the best two hours you'll spend today.

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.

Very much evokes 1991-range Apogee MS-DOS games, complete with a 3MB download size.
I wish i could switch weapons, but other than that, I think the gameplay is solid. Jumping feels a bit weird, but it's totally controllable, so I don't mind.

This game is an amazing throwback to classic games like the original Commander Keen, Duke Nukem, Jill of the Jungle, etc. The Nostalgia is awesome, and every late 80s, early 90s era PC gamer should try this.

DOS style game? I mean it gives you the illusion that this is a real DOS game, seriously! If you ever played an old DOS game back when Windows 95 didn't exist then you know what to expect. This one reminds me of the old Duke Nukem (the 2D one) and this is a good thing. Maybe not the most original game out there but for the sheer nostalgia this one gives it's worth its weight in gold...

i love it, it's great, fun, interesting, challenging, has a bit of depth to it, and honestly the only thing i dislike about it is too short, i wish there were a few more levels, few more episodes and wish each level was longer, the boss fights are interesting and if you like old style platformers this is for you

A excellent recreation of a late 80s DOS platformer. I LOL'd at having to press ALT+F4 to quit.

This is probably the coolest game I've played in a long time. A faithful throwback to to games such as Bio Menace and Duke Nukem 1, it has everything from choppy movement to ♥♥♥♥ty PC speaker noise. It's not too long, and it's not too short. It's very challenging, but it's not Japan hard.

That brings up my only real complaint. It has some Japanese/Anime influence to it, which doesn't make much sense because A: I cant think of any of these kinds of games that had anime influence and B: DOS Games just weren't very popular in Japan altogether. Also, anime is gay but that's beside the point.

Still, the game is really fun and actually has a decent storyline. I see this game becoming something I play weekly, maybe even as often as I play Doom. Yeah, it's that good.

A love letter to the classic EGA games of the 80s.

While I wasn't a PC gamer until the mid-90s, this game has a look and feel of a game from that era.
With adjustable difficulty and relatively short and well thought out levels, you won't become too frustrated with it.

There is a story element to it that, initially seems hard to follow, but slowly the pieces start to fall together.
If you like side-scrolling, jump-n-shoot, retro platformers, give MURI a try.

Wow this game really nails the feel of those old school DOS games and with the more solid play mechanics of a modern 2D Platformer. MURI delivers what it promises in style and game play and honestly is less frustrating and more satisfying to play than a lot of the early DOS games it is inspired by.

Do you miss games like Commander Keen or the original 2D Duke Nukem games?

This game plays exactly like them and is the perfect love letter to old PC platformers, with the perfect recreation graphically and gameplay wise.

Mind you it IS just like an old game, you can't save and it's pretty short, but it's also pretty intense and worth it for it's low price.

Muri does a incredible job of capturing the spirti of dos sidescrollers while still being a clear improvement on them.
It has tons of secret areas, a lot of very cool enemy's to fight and a very clever minimal system for managing limited amo and different weapons
however the game is like 2 hours long
but the price is low so thats no big deal
theres not much replay other than a secret boss if you play on the hardest difficulty
and some secret areas give insights on the story
Highly reccomended.
