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.

Inspired by the games of its time, MURI is an authentic '80s experience, with the focus often changing between run-and-gun action and more tactical combat.

Pro:
Decent platformer
Retro graphics
Steam cards
Some controller support
Can run on my toaster

Con:
EGA graphics that look more like CGA graphics
Not happy with my controller
$4.49 seems a bit much for this game

Overall:
5/10 -1 price = 4/10
It's a good homage to DOS platformers. The graphics a bit ugly for "EGA" as if they were trying to make it look retro but went too far. To me this is more of a $1 game to play for a few hours of retro fun and then go back to modern games with graphics, 100% controller support, OK audio, etc.

Grab it when it's 75% off and play for a while. This is a thumbs sideways game for me. I got it cheap, so thumbs up. Just don't pay full price unless you have to have this game.

It's really impressive how close to an actual EGA DOS game MURI feels and looks. Everything is extremely authentic from the sound effects, graphics to the gameplay.
The only thing I don't really like is the lack of a soundtrack but other than that, it's definitely worth the money.

MURI feels like a game designed with a purpose, and it meets that purpose well. It duplicates the appearance and structure of an EGA-era DOS platformer, and feels very authentic to that. It even has an option to scroll tile-by-tile as those games often did to compensate for the underpowered PC graphics hardware of the day.

The game consists of twenty levels divided into four episodes. Much like the games it follows, you do lose all your weapons and powerups after each, but the game is designed for this; boss fights give you massive arsenal upgrades and the first level always gives you a few extra guns if you're careful with your special ammunition.

The game's challenge level is fairly even, with a gentle upward slope as you progress. Though the game's final chapters do ramp up the enemy and bullet density, there aren't any egregious 'gotcha' spots, at least on Normal difficulty that I played.

Overall it's an average game, but one worth playing if you enjoy the EGA aesthetic. If you're a fan of Duke Nukem 1 and 2, or Commander Keen, grab this.

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!
