"A rare throwback to early '90s DOS EGA platformers like Duke Nukem, Commander Keen, etc."

About This Game

MURI is a DOS-style shooter from Remar Games and Ludosity.

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.

MURI took me by surprise. I was expecting a thrown out piece of garbage when I looked at the screenshots, however here I am again, enjoying another extremely well put together indie title.

Gameplay is very simple, I only died about three times throughout the whole game, but I had an absolute blast with this metroidvania type action side scroller. Plenty of different weapon types, wide variety of bad guys to squish, the only downside I would say is the bosses are really no challenge at all, they are basically just a bigger, longer version of a normal fight.

I cannot recommend MURI enough, however I don't see there being any replayability once you finish it once, and the story mode took me about three hours to complete.

Keep an eye on the bundles as I suspect this will appear in them a lot.

A surprising gem of a game! Reminiscent of old Apogee games like Duke Nukem 1+2; MURI does the retro thing right. Complete with lots of secret areas, weapon upgrades and bonus "score" pickups.

Worth a play-through, which shouldn't take you more than 4-6 hours depending on how much you like to hunt for secret areas.

MURI is a throwback to classic DOS platformers but will it hit the mark or fail ? We play as Adwoa. She is one of the creators of the MURI suit which is like a suit made to absorb life forms. After a failed missions it's up to us to restore balance in the world. So how is MURI ? All i can say this is a must play for any DOS game fans. This feels a lot more polished than the classic DOS games like Duke Nukem. The game is a platformer in which you start at point A and you need to get to point B. MURI has outstanding level design and it's overall a really well made game. The game is also quite short only around an hour long. Overall there's not a lot to say about this game. It's a really fun and a well made game. The only gripes i have with the game is that it's too short. I would have loved more levels. But overall MURI is a must play and with the price tag it's a must buy. I give MURI a 7.5/10

This game nails the feeling of Duke Nukem 1 so hard that it actually completely eclipses it. It's faster, smoother, full of satisfying weapons and intense combat encounters. There's some clever design elements, like finding cell keys that mostly contribute toward helping with bosses. Every level is full of paths, secrets and unique elements that keep interest up throughout. I started the game mostly carried by my nostalgia, but in the end it held up as a unique, strong title of its own.
