"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

I didn't get to experience much of the golden age of PC gaming, but I can appreciate the appeal of those games. Muri really captures the charm of old PC side scrollers and still remains a satisfying experience to play.

I don't even mind the lack of music. Kinda reminds me of the Atari days.

Also, you can jump on enemies! 10/10

Designed to look, sound and play like a DOS game, this is a paean to the power of the aesthetic. It could almost be running via DOSBox, such is the atmosphere of the game. A platform action game at heart with a lot of shooting, this is a fun albeit short-lived experience. The graphics are suitably EGA like; there is no in-game music and the sound effects are pleasingly simplistic.

Some of the deliberate constraints may annoy those not used to playing old-style games: weapon selection is automatic - the most powerful weapon is always chosen. The frame rate is choppy, but you can make it smoother in the menu. There is no map or indicator of where to go next; fortunately the stages are not a sprawling affair - you can get through most levels quickly if you decide to.

There are some concessions which help make it less frustrating for some folk. There are several small rooms hidden from view, usually with a power-up or scoring items. You are briefly invincible when hit, enemies' bullets are large and easy to see and you can repeatedly bounce on most enemies to damage them. There are several difficulty levels and the cut scenes can be skipped. You have all this fun with no need to add commands like DEVICEHIGH=C:\WINDOWS\EMM386.EXE RAM into your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
