    A thunderous Metroidvania effort that sublimely marries the timeless design of yesteryear with some of the best decisions of modern game design, The Mummy Demastered is not only a great title but also one of the genuinely best surprises of the year.

    A small but very interesting metroidvania.

    Aside from the simple fact it exists, the biggest surprise about The Mummy Desmastered is that it’s actually quite good.

    This might be the first time I think the license here might actually be doing the game harm then the game itself. I just can’t see most people seeing the movie and saying “You know, I really want a game from this” but here we are. What we are left with is a really fun take on the Metroidvania side scrolling genre that has quality all around. Its gameplay, graphics, and especially its soundtrack, all work together in making this something I would have loved to discover back in the SNES era. I know there is a ton of games being released and The Mummy Demastered is most likely the farthest on anyone’s lists of games to play right now, but if players find themselves craving 2D side scrolling action game this fall season, this one is definitely worth looking into.

    This game doesn't do anything meaningfully new or original for metroidvania fans, but everything here is solid and WayForward got the fundamentals right... in a licensed Mummy adaptation, of all things.

    It’s more an unofficial Castlevania game than a movie tie-in, but if you can handle the high difficultly level this is an effective substitute for the real thing.

    Quibbles aside, The Mummy delivers a creative and action-packed adventure. Full of running, jumping, and gunning through tombs, forests, sewers, subway tunnels, and beyond, the game brims with challenging old-school charm. It's sure to bring back a flood of nostalgia, while still managing to be a solid game on its own.

    it plays and responds beautifully

    -
    your character has no personality
    it can get really hard at times

    over all
    I had a great time and I`m looking forward to play some more in the future.

    it`s worth it

    Amazing game! This game wears it's love for Super Metroid on it's sleeve and I don't mind at all! They really nail it with this game. SuperAmazing game! This game wears it's love for Super Metroid on it's sleeve and I don't mind at all! They really nail it with this game. Super fun, excellent controls, nice pixels, fun power-ups, cool enemies and a great bargain. It is a bit easy, but I don't mind too much. Definitely get this if you like the genre. Expand
