Keen Thinking: MURI

By Alec Meer on November 28th, 2013.

Ah, life was easier back in the days of DOS. No, that’s bollocks: you had to dick around with command lines, XMS/EMS, monitors the size of bears and games which required 17 floppy disks. Also the only Nandos in the UK was in London. Rubbish.

Mr Perkins pointed me in the direction of the newly-released Hero Core, from Daniel Remar who you may know from Ilj from a couple of years back. It’s the sequel to Hero, and I loved it within seconds of starting. A sprawling, non-linear shooter which will recall either old-skool NES or old-skool Ultimate: Play The Game, depending which side of the Atlantic you’re on. If you’re from elsewhere… well, you tell me. Go gets! Trailer follows.
