Murtop is a retro fusion of Dig Dug meets Bomberman

By - | Views: 30,324

Dig Dug meets Bomberman? Yes that exists. Meet Murtop, a fast-paced arcade game packed with action, as if it was taken out directly from the 80s made with Godot Engine. The developer emailed in to mention it works perfectly on Linux desktop and Steam Deck!

I love Bomberman (oh god, look at how much time I've spent on Super Bomberman R 2 since it released two days ago...), I like Dig Dug, and I also happen to like Watership Down, and also those angry moles remind me of Mr. Resetti from Animal Crossing, which I also used to like, so a game with a bomb-pooping bunny that combines all of these things is right up my alley.

I love the style of the key-art, too - also very on-point. This'd be the second game this week that feels like it's been made just for me, hahaha!

Bought.

I really like Murtop, too. It plays spot-on, and feels a lot like a "lost" arcade-game from the 1980s (which reminded me somewhat of another recent title called Donut Dodo).

That is entirely possible - in the best of arcade traditions, of course.

The trailer really does evoke some traumatic memories of dig dug. The style is spot on. I bet I'd be very bad at this one as well.

I thought she just looked like bomberman! Aren't avatar images supposed to be accurate representations of us? I feel deceived...

(I totally look like a happy penguin. Ask anyone!)

I bought this game quite some time ago. It's pretty neat. I can recommend it to anyone that finds the premise even remotely interesting.
