    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.

    So you grew up in the '90s, right? Played a lot of Commander Keen, Biomenace, Duke Nukem (the first two) and all sorts of other twodimensionalSo you grew up in the '90s, right? Played a lot of Commander Keen, Biomenace, Duke Nukem (the first two) and all sorts of other twodimensional platformers? Or at least you're hip and nerdy enough to honestly appreciate those kind of games?

    Well, here's your chance to relive that particular place in time and space with a new adventure! Play MURI for ten seconds and you'll be thrown back immediately (actually you don't even need those ten seconds - just look at the intro screen and listen to the theme music), and ever now and then you get surprised by some more modern contraptions.
    The level design is fun and does the one thing right that so many games do wrong nowadays: you can fully backtrack every part of the level at your own pace and leisure to get all those hidden secrets and goodies. Yet the enemies are the most interesting part of this short little hommage to the oldschool platforming era. They're quite original in design and behaviour and they fit the weird SciFi storyline perfectly imho.

    Get this game (especially when it's on sale, it can get as low as €0.39) and enjoy your one or two hours of well executed retro fun. I know for sure I did.

    A fun platform. It's not for everyone, as it tries to replicate old PC platformers, like Duke Nukem (the first one). It's also very short andA fun platform. It's not for everyone, as it tries to replicate old PC platformers, like Duke Nukem (the first one). It's also very short and has little to no-music, but it's a fun experience if you liked the games back in the day, and it doesn't cost much either. Expand

    There's a reason they don't make 'em like they used to: because they used to make terrible games.

    MURI attempts to replicate the feel of a terrible old game run on DOS.

    It succeeds.

    This is not a good thing.

    It isn't worth your time and it isn't worth your money.
